Officials from U.S. Customs and Border Protection are investigating an agent video who ran down a native American protestor with his SUV and drove away, reports BuzzFeed News.


In a video posted to Twitter by a Twitter account associated with the Tohono O’odham Nation, a man named Paulo Remes is hit by the vehicle. The driver doesn't stop, simply driving away as Remes lays on the ground.

"They just ran me over, bro," Remes says.

The Tohono O’odham Nation has land on the border with Mexico in southern Arizona, and opposes Trump's plan to build a wall.

Border Patrol told BuzzFeed that they are "actively investigating " and "fully cooperating with the Tohono O’odham Police Department as they investigate."

However, the agency would not reveal the driver's identity yet as the matter "is still under investigation."
