The NYT reported the aunt said this, so do we believe the NYT? No because they are anti-Trump and pro illegal alien, do we believe the aunt, that's debatable, but I'd say no, next they will be quoting one of their unnamed sources.
The aunt has a message for the U.S. "Don't treat us like animals" she must be a MS 13 gangbanger.

I have a message for Auntie. Do not come to the United States illegally, or you will be shot . Who the hell do these relatives of criminals think they are? They do not make immigration law, they break it. If they are stupid enough to chance getting shot, oh well.

If the democrats had a choice of who would get shot, they would overwhelmingly picked the border agent, their actions speak louder then words especially since the "animal" comment by President Trump and the way they have and are supporting the murdering illegal alien MS gang.
Don't ever find yourself alone with a bunch of progressive liberals, they are dangerous in a pack.

The Progressives have these people thinking we will greet them with the Welcome Wagon. They must know those men with guns can use them. This open border business has to stop. If it means criminals get shot that is obviously all they will understand. We have tried to reason with them. They don't care about the laws at all. And all Auntie is really upset about is now there won't be any American Dollars sent from her Niece.

"The United States Customs and Border Protection offered varying accounts of what happened in the shooting...."

There wasn't just one Border protection agent. The eyewitness said "agents" were present immediately after the shot drew her out of her house. The impression left of there being just one border agent present "justifies" the claimed sense of risk felt by the agent, who was really "agents," and thus "justifies" the fatal shooting.

Since there was an eyewitness the story changed from the agent [sic] being struck with "blunt objects" to "being charged by a group of immigrants."

If the Democrats won't provide the money for the wall, and the criminals insist on entering the country illegally there is nothing left then to shoot the criminals. It is their choice. No one is pushing them across the border illegally, they come voluntarily, and they know they are entering illegally. I have no sympathy for people who enter illegally when they could enter like the millions of others who come legally.

The wall is physically impossible to build over much of that 2000 miles. It is prohibitively expensive. It is corporate welfare insofar as any of it will be built. There are much more effective ways to secure the border if that is the goal.

People who enter the US in a way the racist right calls "illegally" may or may not be committing a criminal act.

There is no doubt that right wing white supremacist want darker skinned persons shot dead.

Trump just wants the 700 miles completed already approved by congress back in 2006 but not funded. It is to be on the most porous areas of our border and on shorter sections where it's already been built it has proven to be very effective. The rest of the border has natural barriers to illegal entry. It's not too expensive when you consider that the wall will cost $25 billion vs the over $100 billion a year that illegals cost us.

The immigration term for those who enter our illegally is illegal aliens it's not a racist right term. An illegal alien isn't a race it's an unlawful status in our country. It's against the law to enter illegally so what's your point?

Most conservatives are not white supremacists nor is this about skin color. So stick the race/skin color card back in your wallet. It's not just conservatives or whites that want our immigration laws respected and enforced either. Most are not advocating for illegal aliens to be shot either. But what would you liberals and ethnocentrics have if you didn't spin and stretch the truth to fit your agenda?

When you have to support a family, you will do what is necessary! Instead, the LEGALS prefer to rob, abuse, commit frauds or kill instead of working, pay taxes, create GDP and set working standards!

I say kill the LEGALS unfit to liv ehere!

Please, explain how the people crossing a border into another country without legal documents, violating our immigration laws, are not committing a criminal act. I guarantee you they are in violation of our immigration laws, and can be shot if they insist on doing it. But what did the former President ever say that gives you the idea it is not a crime?

Then even his gullible, racist base should not have been responding to his fictional talk of this fictional wall as _his_ racist dog whistle. in other words, you're not making any sense.

Also, your claim about this (not funded) 700 miles of wall does not address my simple points about the great border wall that Mexico will pay for. It can't be built physically over much of that border. It is way to expensive...even for the Mexican government. Other, less capital intensive measures are more effective over the length than "a great, see through border wall."

Because that does not describe how the bulk of our undocumented immigrants got into the US, mongoloid.

Cop killer and Antifa supporters from Philly may want to give the violent female's foreign family legal rights that she can process in an International Court. The collector of Jew's belongings in Nazi Germany, that DNC and Hillary supporter Soros, would surely pay the bill.

Funny how the women shot and her cohorts were beating the border Agent with 2 x 4 `s just before the agent had to defend him or herself .
even more funny is we have people here supporting illegal aliens showing they have no value of laws or law enforcement.next the losers will chant better a dead bp agent than a criminal illegal alien

I know this will come as a complete surprise to foreigners, but whether you walk across, fly across, jump across, or fall across the border of a country you are not legally part of you have committed a crime, and can be jailed, or shot.
