"But our borders are more secure than ever....."

(Reuters) - A father and son face federal charges after investigators say they opened fire and wounded a U.S. immigration special agent near the U.S.-Mexico border during an early-morning chase, federal officials said Thursday.
The father and son, along with an unidentified minor, are accused of opening fire and chasing after Kelton Harrison, an Immigration Customs Enforcement special agent working a narcotics investigation before dawn on Tuesday in Hargill, Texas, a community of about 900 residents about 30 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, Kenneth Magidson, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Texas, said in a statement.
ICE agents arrested Pedro Alvarado, 41, and his son, Arnoldo Alvarado, 18, several hours after Harrison abandoned his vehicle after suffering a gunshot wound to his back, Magidson said.
Harrison underwent surgery on the gunshot wound on Tuesday and is expected to recover, an ICE spokeswoman said.

I'm sure the son was there by no fault of his own so we will give him full citizenship and a scholarship t0 UCLA. Seriously the shitty reporting in the article didn't even mention the two http://www.themonitor.com/articles/texas-62059-shooting-agent.html illegal Salvadorians recovered during the investigation. I wonder why they would leave that out?
