A brutally attacked agent was found lying alongside an El Paso roadway.
Now a three-time deported illegal alien who attacked the off-duty Border Patrol agent back in 2017 has pleaded guilty in Las Cruces to attempted first-degree murder, which is a second-degree felony.
Sergio Ivan Venegas-Quiñonez only faces up to nine years in state prison for the second-degree felony conviction of attempted murder.

A three-time deported illegal alien with alleged ties to a Mexican cartel pleaded guilty in a New Mexico court on Monday to charges related to the attempted murder of a Border Patrol agent in 2017. The court dismissed aggravated battery and assault charges as part of a plea agreement. The court also dismissed a second criminal case against the man.
Sergio Ivan Venegas-Quiñonez, a 35-year-old Mexican national, pleaded guilty in the New Mexico 3rd Judicial District Court before Judge Doug Diggers, for attempting to murder Border Patrol Agent Lorenzo Hernandez, the Las Cruces Sun News reported. Breitbart News Border/Cartel Chronicles Director Brandon Darby first broke the news of the kidnapping and assault of Agent Hernandez in June 2017:
A leaked official document from the El Paso Sector Intelligence and Operations Center reveals that the injured off-duty Border Patrol agent who was discovered on the side of a roadway on June 9, 2017, is believed to have been kidnapped prior to sustaining severe injuries to his “head, chest, and hands.” Breitbart Texas exclusively obtained the document from a trusted source operating under the umbrella of Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
The document does specifically identify that a Border Patrol agent was kidnapped and assaulted. The document also asserts that the FBI in El Paso, Texas, is leading the investigation. The document also warns law enforcement agents. It asserts, “Agents are advised to remain vigilant and maintain a heightened level of awareness.” More
Well, there’s not a rock to dodge in this scenario. If only there were some physical structure that would keep these cartel animals in Mexico.
We need to go after Mexican gangs and cartels the way we go after ISIS. They are terrorist groups and should be treated as such.
