In a story not reported or spoke about often in the mainstream media, human trafficking is a massive problem at our southern border.
Four ICE federal agents are in the hospital, and a woman is dead in a shootout last Thursday. Four other people were also injured according to the report.
Of the four agents hurt, two of them were shot, according to Councilman Sal DiCiccio’s office.
DiCiccio’s office told Arizona’s Family that Phoenix police briefed them on the situation.
According to police, one of the suspects was armed with an assault rifle.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) says the shooting was connected to a human smuggling investigation.
A source tells Arizona’s Family that the four agents involved had injuries that aren’t life-threatening.
Phoenix police said ICE agents were trying to stop a driver and make an arrest. All five suspects were in the vehicle.
Investigators said the suspect tried to run, but the agents forced the vehicle to stop.
Authorities have not released any other information about the suspects.
According to a statement released Thursday afternoon by ICE, “special agents discharged their firearms, striking two suspects while executing a federal felony arrest warrant connected to human smuggling.”
Please note, we know this story happened last week. We feel it’s our job to put light on situations the mainstream media refuses to cover.
All of our team sends prayers and warm wishes to those agents involved while trying to stop Human Trafficking. Get well gentlemen.
