A Border Patrol agent was shot near Lordsburg, New Mexico, along a local highway ahead of President Joe Biden’s expected trip to the southern border, National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told the Daily Caller News Foundation Thursday.

“Border Patrol agents made a vehicle stop. In the course of the vehicle stop a suspect shot a Border Patrol agent in the chest and I believe also in the arm,” Judd said, adding that the bullet didn’t penetrate the agent’s protective vest.

“The vehicle then fled and a pursuit took place where it’s my understanding that the vehicle then crashed and rolled with the suspect fleeing,” Judd continued.

Agents later apprehended the suspect, who Judd said may have been a smuggler.

The situation comes days before Biden is set to visit El Paso, Texas, which is in the same sector as Lordsburg. Border Patrol agents have recently seen a record surge in illegal immigration, with more than 2.3 million migrants encountered by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in fiscal year 2022.

CBP didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment and it remains unclear the intentions of the suspect.
