Mexican Troops Fire On U.S. Border Patrol… On Our Side Of Border
Imagine for a moment your next door neighbor breaks into your home and attempts to assault you for no apparent reason. You would obviously attempt to protect yourself and perhaps fight back, and certainly call the police. However if you’re a U.S. Custom and Border Agent patrolling your side of the border apparently you’re fare game to be harassed and perhaps assaulted, and even shot at by foreign invaders, without so much as a formal complaint, and this seems to be exactly what is taking place along our southwestern border.
Based on documents obtained from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Judicial Watch has uncovered the details of an incident on June 26, 2014, in which a Mexican government helicopter crossed into U.S. airspace and opened fire on U.S. Border Patrol personnel located in a clearly marked position. The CBP documents were released in response to a July 9, 2014, Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
And apparently this isn’t an isolated incident, in fact this has been going on for decades, DHS records show that Mexican military incursions occur quite often and regularly go unpunished by the U.S. government. For instance, the DHS documents reveal 226 incursions by Mexican personnel into the U.S. between 1996 and 2005. In 2007 alone, 25 such incursions occurred along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Once again we’re witnessing a systemic break down by those in authority to protect or vital interests and preserve our sovereignty as a nation, what is even more troubling is that documents detailing intentional border incursions by Mexican military and other government personnel have occurred in both the Bush and Obama administrations with little if any consequences directed at the Mexican government.
The U.S. Border Patrol Agents were parked approximately 100 yards north of the border on the U.S. side when they observed a Mexican LEA helicopter cross north into the U.S. for approximately 100 yards, and observed two rounds being shot from the helicopter which landed approximately 15 yards to the side of one of the unmarked Border Patrol Vehicles (FOB) they were driving. Also, there were two marked vehicles at the scene next to the unmarked as well.
