DHS Tells Border Agents to Flee From Illegals Throwing Rocks at Them

It’s an Obama world.
In February an illegal alien was shot and killed as he entered the United State.
The border patrol agent shot and killed the man because he was hit in the face with a rock.

The trespasser was reportedly throwing large rocks at the border patrol agents.

After complaints by Mexican officials the Obama administration passed new rules this past week. Border agents  were directed to retreat whenever illegals hurl rocks at them.
The Daily Caller reported:

Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments.

“Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol.

Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by.
