Texas National Guard Soldier Drowns While Saving Migrant Drug Smuggler

"Socalj" for Borderland Beat

Texas National Guard soldier Bishop E. Evans drowned in the Rio Grande after diving in to help an illegal migrant smuggling narcotics struggling to cross the river.

Local law enforcement on Friday said the guard member tried to rescue a woman who was crossing the Rio Grande River near Eagle Pass, Texas, and "never came up." The soldier is identified as 22-year-old Bishop E. Evans from Arlington, Texas. In an updated release on Saturday, the TMD said the soldier "selflessly attempted" to help two migrants who appeared to be drowning as they illegally crossed the river from Mexico to the United States.

According to initial reports from the Texas Rangers, the two migrants are suspected of being "involved in illicit transnational narcotics trafficking" and are currently in the custody of US Customs and Border Patrol. The missing soldier's family was notified about the disappearance on Friday night, according to the release.


CNN reported Friday that the soldier was assigned to Operation Lone Star, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's effort to combat what he has called a crisis at the US-Mexico border. The governor said his office is working "with the Texas National Guard and other law enforcement agencies as they search for the missing soldier in Eagle Pass."

Abbott, who is up for reelection, launched Operation Lone Star last March. The operation -- which leaned on resources from the state's public safety department and Texas National Guard -- has swelled to more than 10,000 service members.

The National Guard's role in Operation Lone Star is often supporting law enforcement. Members of the military are barred from carrying out law enforcement activities, such as arrests or searches, without prior authorization.

    1. Don't get all sour cause you know 6:57 is right. Texas isn't exactly a safe haven for African Americans. All for Abbot's Mission for Vote-Pandering to his fellow Caucasian constituents.

    1. I actually grew up around human smuggling. And I can assure you guys that shit will never end. Regardless of who’s the sitting president or how many barriers society decides to build. Mankind tends to just forge ahead one way or another.

    3. 8:05 tromp and the trumpanzees stole the donations for the wall and the 5 billion they re-appropriated from the Department of Defense, Stephen Bannon only stole the money he collected from his donors to him and his partners.

    4. Thank God we have Kamala Harris as the border czar. And if you don’t think she is a doing an amazing job as black/India woman, you’re obviously a racist.

      Sol, you don’t have to grew up around smuggling to realize it’s beyond manageable now versus 2 years ago.

    5. 9:10 wellll, if the US had not been heating up LatinAmerica since the end of WWII there would not be millions of LatinAmerican Cockroaches trying to escape to the US, financed by republican sponsored coyotes.

    6. Sol, you do read the news and see the facts. Well, inflation and the highest border numbers are probably just Russian disinformation like the made up laptop right?

    7. Props to the dude who says WW2 to blame for someone who died trying to save pretend migrants (actually drug runners) at age 22. I am sure his family is saying the same thing. WW2 is to blame! ūü§£ What’s funny is you actually believe this!

    8. @ Driving I actually saw the laptop video on Hoodsite before they changed over to a lesser explicit website. Hunter was fornicating with prostitutes and doing drugs. Living the dream of a junkie. Nonetheless the video was apparently released by the Chinese government as if mocking the US. They defiantly said in that broadcast who was going to be the next prez regardless of who agreed or not. Straight up gangster shit. The residual of politicians doing corrupt things like always.

    9. Hunter biden has served and chose to so shit, crack and whatever, but was not a government employee, did not insurrect or kissed and made out with Putin or Xi...
      In any case, nothing like Mike Pence refusing ro get into the secret service car to get to Congress on jan 6 2021

    10. Driving MSSQL whats funny is your comment. Who said WWII is to blame. He said after WW2 and that it's pretty much the U.S.'s fault that there's an immigration issue, due to the fact of all the bullshit the U.S. was doing in latin america after world war 2. Which is true. The U.S. stays meddling in latin america. They don't want latin america to posper and have shown that time and again with their actions.

      Delete
    11. 1:00 never mind the naysayers, 12:25 likes to show his ass with his half assed ignorant comments, bottom line, 75 years of meddling in LatinAmerican affairs to help United fruit save 1 USD cent per Kilo of Banans on wages by shifting their "security" to the public trough with CIA, has been a very expensive affair for the US and its taxpayers.
