U.S. Border Agent Accused of Slurs Before Bumping Migrant With Truck

According to Reuters, text messages sent by a U.S. Border Patrol agent before he knocked over a migrant with a pickup truck showed that he called migrants “subhuman,” and “savages." Documents in court showed that Agent Matthew Bowen sent the messages just weeks before he is accused of deliberately knocking over a Guatemalan man with his Border Patrol vehicle.

Prosecutors said the messages how Bowen’s “state of mind” prior to the incident and his “willful” intent to knock over the migrant.
