Protests have been ongoing in regard to the immigration debate, but on Saturday that escalated quickly. A man is being charged with injuring a Secret Service officer while trying to breach a barricade near the White House.

According to The Daily Caller:

Prosecutors have charged a man with punching a Secret Service officer in the jaw during an immigration protest in front of the White House Saturday.

The man, identified in court documents as Carmona, allegedly parked his BMW and attempted to move a barrier in Lafayette Square, just north of the White House fence, before punching the officer in the jaw and left eye, NBC News reported.

“Where is the president?” he yelled at the officers, according to the documents.

“Carmona was placed under arrest for assaulting a federal law enforcement officer,” the affidavit obtained by NBC stated. “While being placed under arrest, Carmona asked ‘Where is the President?’ He also stated to officers ‘Just end it, just kill me.'”

It is unclear what his true intentions were. But judging from his rhetoric he could have been trying to breach the barricades to gain access to President Trump.
