Matthew Bowen, an Arizona Border Patrol agent, has pleaded guilty to intentionally running over a Guatemalan migrant with a pickup truck in 2017. He now faces up to a year in prison and a possible fine of $100,000. He will also resign from the Border Patrol. The man he hit, Antolin Rolando López-Aguilar, survived. Court filings show Bowen had sent a slew of racist text messages on his phone referring to immigrants as “subhuman” and “beaners,” among other insults.
