    Of course, the [United States] Border Patrol itself is riddled with brutality, killing immigrants crossing the border illegally“.

    Is that a fact?

    For the year 2022, during which an unprecedented number of migrants have entered the United States via Mexico, only twenty-one immigrants have died in encounters with U.S. Border Patrol.
    The overwhelming majority of these deaths are due to the immigrants dying in high speed vehicle accidents, or drownings.
    A few immigrants died due to medical conditions.

    Where is your proof of brutality and killing immigrants?
    Where is it?


    1. @ Braintree:

      Is that a fact?

      Most definitely: This article calls it a “cult of brutality since 1924”: https://theintercept.com/2019/01/12/border-patrol-history/

      This one about its “long history of brutality: https://www.latimes.com/opinion/story/2021-09-22/haitian-migrants-del-rio-border-patrol-horseback

      This one decries a “legacy of racism: https://www.americanimmigrationcouncil.org/research/legacy-racism-within-us-border-patrol

      And these are just the first few query results on the subject in Google. You could have done the same search in 20 seconds. But were either too lazy or too biased to bother.

      only twenty-one immigrants have died in encounters with U.S. Border Patrol.

      First, the statistics you refer to from your own source prove you are either lying, or don’t know how to read. THe graphic accompanying this quote is displayed below:

      According to SBCC’s analysis, 60 of these deaths were caused by an on-duty CBP agent’s use of force including a fatal shooting, asphyxiation, a Taster, beating or a chemical agent. Another 74 deaths were due to vehicle collisions involving Border Patrol, the majority (63) of which occurred during high-speed car chases initiated by Border Patrol. In addition, 50 of the deaths were related to failure to provide adequate medical attention or medical emergencies, either while individuals were in CBP custody or directly after an encounter with agents. Fifteen deaths were homicides carried out by off-duty officers and in these cases, agents were often charged, convicted and sentenced to prison time. Twenty were due to unknown or other causes, including 4 cases of alleged suicide and 8 drownings.

      Border Patrol is riddled with violence and brutality. Much like the Israeli BOrder Police. The ony difference is there is actually some federal oversight over our Border Patrol. Israel’s Border Police have, in reality, no oversight. They do what they want, how they want and know there will ultimately be no consequences.

      Actually 557 migrants died in 2021, not 21. Here are the actual numbers instead the ones you invented or mischaracterized. You’d think by now, you’d recognize if you lie or slant your comments and their sources that I’d find you out and expose you. But apparently not.

      Border Patrol death stats

      1. [Comment deleted: I told you at least 3 times you were only entitled to post a single comment in any thread. You’ve ignored that yet again. I will not let you and others with your views dominate my comment threads. I don’t have the energy or inclination to get down in the weeds with you and repeatedly point out your biases, propaganda and errors. It becomes pure tedium. Essentially, you bore me. And I detest boredom.

        I also told you not to use IP proxies in order to conceal your identity. You continue to do so. If you can’t respect me I won’t respect you by permitting you to comment here. ]
