An illegal alien who was shot while attacking a U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) agent in Texas is wanted for murder in Mexico and has a lengthy history of unlawful entries, according to reports.

On May 16, a Del Rio Sector USBP agent was assaulted by an illegal alien during an enforcement action in Quemado, a town on the Mexican border approximately 20 miles northwest of Eagle Pass, as InfoWars previously reported.

Agents had been tracking a group of illegals who attempted to evade detection at the Rio Grande.

While being taken into custody, one of the men resisted arrest and tried to grab a border agent’s firearm, at which time he was shot in the leg.

The agent, who suffered a fractured rib during the scuffle, applied a tourniquet to the wounded man’s leg as they waited for medical responders, likely saving his life, authorities say.

On Friday, NewsNation correspondent Ali Bradley revealed that the foreign assailant is a Mexican citizen wanted on murder charges in his home country.

Makcario Reyes, 32, has been caught entering the U.S. illegally at least seven times since 2011, Customs and Border Protection sources told Bradley.

In 2023, Reyes was removed from the U.S. but it is unclear how many times he has been deported in the past.

Reyes remained hospitalized as of Friday amid an FBI investigation into the incident.

It is unclear what, if any, criminal charges he may face in the U.S.

At least 10 Border Patrol agents have reportedly been assaulted in Del Rio Sector in the past 90 days.
