Anyone in media want to follow up w/this? Or is it just the norm now for Somalis trying to kill agents on border? https://t.co/vcRleBBT2v

New “paperwork” of an April incident near the Arizona/Mexico border involving a Somali citizen and Border Patrol agents has just come to light, and the report raises many more questions than it answers. From ABC 15:
A Somali citizen tried to run over Border Patrol agents in southern Arizona after a high speed pursuit, according to federal investigators.
In April, investigators say Ahmed Elni Abdalla drove up to a checkpoint near Amado. When agents approached Abdalla’s car, he drove through the stop sign and tried to get away at a “high rate of speed.”
The high-speed pursuit continued up to Green Valley where agents were able to box in Abdalla’s car.
However, Abdalla allegedly refused to get out. When agents tried to break his car window, Abdalla drove right at agents who had to “jump out of the way in order to avoid being hit,” according to federal paperwork.
Um … more information, please or is it too un-PC to question why a Somali citizen with an Islamic-sounding name tried to kill Border Patrol agents 30 miles north of the U.S.–Mexico border?
Of note, liberals have protested this particular checkpoint in Amado in the past:

According to court documents, Abdalla has been charged with two counts of fleeing from a Federal Officer and has retained an attorney.
