Federal court won't revisit Arizona identity theft law ruling
June 10, 2016 @ 7:17 am

PHOENIX — A federal appeals court has refused to reconsider its decision
reinstating Arizona identity theft laws that were used to charge hundreds of
immigrants accused of using fake or stolen IDs to get jobs.

A three-judge panel from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday
declined to review its May decision that threw out a preliminary injunction
stopping Arizona from enforcing the laws.

No judge on the full 9th Circuit wanted to grant a rehearing.

A lower court judge had said immigrant-rights advocates were likely to succeed

A Border Patrol agent was brutally attacked by an illegal alien in the Yuma Sector on the U.S.-Mexico border on the night of June 9 and the agent responded with deadly force and killed the illegal alien. Multiple sources operating under the umbrella of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) discussed the issue with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity. The Border Patrol agency confirmed the incident to Breitbart Texas when called.

According to the sources, three men illegally entered the U.S. and crossed the Colorado River when they were detected. An lone Border Patrol agent responded and one of the three men attacked the agent. The alien grabbed for the agent's service weapon. In the process of the agent protecting his service weapon, the alien grabbed his radio and began beating the agent about the head. The alien also grabbed the agent's baton and used that to beat the agent as well.

The Border Patrol agent was left with head injuries and a severe laceration above his right eyebrow that required multiple stitches. The agent's hands were also swollen after the life-threatening attack from the alien. The agent responded with deadly force and the alien attacker is now dead.

The illegal alien did not have identification on his person and his identity and country of origin remains unknown, though our sources are confident the attacker was an illegal alien.

The other two illegal aliens are in the custody of U.S. Border Patrol.
