A U.S. Border Patrol agent reportedly broke his ankle on Saturday while trying to protect an older woman as protesters in McAllen, Texas attempted to stop a bus transporting illegal immigrants from one detainment center to another.

Some 200 protesters from the League of United Latin American Citizens, who were bussed in from cities all over Texas, descended upon the McAllen detainment facility, and several attempted to stop a bus that was transporting illegal immigrants to another detention center. (RELATED: Border Patrol Agent Tells Truth Behind TIME Cover)

On “Fox & Friends” Sunday morning, reporter Griff Jenkins explained what happened. He said, “Something we’re learning just this morning, guys, and that is that one of the agents inside here when this bus was moving, when the melee was going on, was trying to control the crowd, was trying to ensure that he also did not step on a smaller little old lady, he broke his ankle. His ankle is broken this morning.”

Jenkins turned his microphone to the protesters who were quick to blame President Donald Trump for the current situation. One yelled, “we’re coming for [Trump] in 2020, and we’re coming for his Congress in 2018!”

When he asked whether they protested when President Obama’s administration approved of the same conditions in many of the same facilities, Jenkins said that the protesters had nothing more to say.
