Shootout In Phoenix: ICE Agents Take On Human Traffickers Alone

In Phoenix, DHS agents were the only line of defense against a group of human smugglers who opened fire on them in a downtown shoot out.

The border crisis is getting worse.

Gunfire, chaos and confusion. That’s what happened in Phoenix, Arizona yesterday morning when agents with Immigration and Customs Enforcement attempted to stop a group of human smugglers.

Police in the city reported that four Homeland Security Investigation agents, an enforcement arm of ICE, were taken to the hospital following a massive shootout in the Ahwatukee area.

While HSI agents were conducting an investigation into human traffickers, they attempted to pull over suspected human smugglers, but what resulted was something like reminiscent of the Wild West.

ICE agents were left standing alone to face the criminal invaders as Phoenix police officials said that were ‘not involved’ in the human smuggling investigation or the shooting.

Video from the scene shows police cars after the gruesome gun battle, along with emergency vehicles, surrounding a truck that crashed into a brick wall. An SUV and another truck looked like they were involved in a collision and one vehicle had all is windows shot out.

Fox 10 Phoenix reported:

Phoenix Police officials say there were five people in the suspect vehicle. One of them, identified as a woman, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The rest were taken to the hospital, and their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

HSI is the investigative arm of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. It investigates a variety of cross-border criminal activity including financial crimes, immigration fraud and weapons and drug trafficking.

As of Thursday night, an investigation at the scene is ongoing.

What investigation? Into the smugglers or the ICE agents?

This sort of violence demonstrates the widening crisis at the Southern border as hordes of invaders cross into a life of paid for by hardworking American taxpayers.

Neighbors who heard the gun fight described it to the local news outlet:

“All of a sudden, I heard this ‘dah dah dah dah dah’, you know, gunshots,” said Jennifer Foster. “And then, it went silent, and then, it was again and again and again, so it ended up being, like, it was about 70 gunshots.”

“It sounded like you were in a warzone, like in Syria or something, or Iraq,” said Nick Dalton.

It is a warzone.

When will democrats wake up to the fact that America is being invaded at a rapid pace and unless something is done to stop it, will resemble Europe in just a few years.
