Feds Accuse Man of Assaulting Immigration Enforcement Agent

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Federal prosecutors have accused a Mexican man living illegally in the United States of assaulting an immigration enforcement agent who arrested him for deportation.  A criminal complaint filed in federal court in Kansas accuses Emmanuel Rodriguez-Torres of assaulting a federal officer involving physical contact.  Prosecutors allege he tried to kick the agent in the head and face. He is also accused of twice spitting on the officer's face and clothing.  No defense attorney is listed for Rodriguez-Torres in court records.  The case stems from a May 6 incident during which agents with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement went to Great Bend to arrest him. A court filing says Rodriguez-Torres had been previously convicted of violent offenses such as assault and battery and was therefore eligible for immigration removal.
