PROGRESO, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents were attacked with rocks while providing medical assistance to a pregnant woman.

On Saturday, Weslaco agents observed a group of illegal aliens using a tree to climb up the Progreso Port of Entry (POE) after a failed attempt to gain entry into the United States. The agents alerted officials working at the POE and approached the group. As they got closer to the area, agents noticed two subjects on top of the bridge and a woman in distress at the base of the tree. The woman, a 25 year-old Mexican national, was complaining of back pain and claimed to be pregnant. As agents began to provide the woman with medical attention, one of the subjects on the bridge began to throw rocks at the agents.

The article goes on to state the following:

The agents were able to move to the woman to a safe location and had the local Emergency Medical Services transport her to the hospital for an evaluation. The assailants fled back to Mexico.

Once cleared by medical staff, the woman will be processed accordingly.
