Texas (The Gaslamp Post) – Border Patrol agents responding to a report of an injured man found an illegal alien this past Wednesday.  According to the Brownsville Herald, the man told the agents that he was hurt when he fell from the border security fence.

A man remained hospitalized at Valley Regional Medical Center Wednesday afternoon, claiming he fell from the border fence while crossing into the United States, authorities said.

The man was found about 9:25 a.m. Wednesday by a man clearing brush near the area, said Agent Henry Mendiola, spokesman for the U.S. Border Patrol’s Rio Grande Valley Sector.

He had fallen roughly 2 days before he was found.

The illegal reportedly suffered a fractured spine and was treated at the Valley Regional Medical Center emergency room.  This is where he is expected to continue receiving care for his injury, all courtesy of the American tax-payer.
