As our border agents are stripped of their authority to protect our borders, Mexican military members taunt and test our border patrol agents to the limits. No doubt, Mexico is not our ally but is quickly becoming more entitled to US territories as we do nothing to protect it. Policies the border patrol agents have to live by are criminal and this administration is purposely fighting for our demise. Is this not proof?

by KRISTIN TATE, Breitbart

HOUSTON, Texas–Breitbart Texas has confirmed that on Thursday morning a Mexican military helicopter flew into the U.S. and shot at Border Patrol agents.

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol provided Breitbart Texas with a statement that said, “At approximately 5:45 a.m. Thursday morning, a Mexican law enforcement helicopter crossed approximately 100 yards north into Arizona nearly 8 miles southwest of the Village of San Miguel on the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation while on a law enforcement operation near the border. Two shots were fired from the helicopter but no injuries or damage to U.S. property were reported. The incident is currently under investigation.”

According to a report from local media outlet KVOA, Mexican authorities reportedly apologized to the U.S. subsequent to the fired shots.
As Breitbart Texas previously reported, more than 500 armed Mexican troops or police have crossed the border and entered the U.S. over the past 10 years. U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner Gil Kerlikowske said that 131 people were detained as a result of the instances, which are reportedly referred to as “incursions.” A total of 81 such incursions involved “verbal or physical contact.”

It may be easy to label the crossing of armed Mexican authorities as ironic, given that in April, U.S. citizen and Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi was imprisoned in Mexico.

Katie Pavlich of Townhall reports the following:

On Thursday morning between midnight and 6 a.m. at least one Mexican military helicopter crossed eight miles into the United States and shot at Border Patrol agents with lethal force before returning to Mexican territory. The incident occurred in an area notorious for violent drug cartel activity just west of the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation during a Border Patrol drug interdiction operation. The timing and location of the incident has prompted agents to believe the use of the helicopter by the Mexican military may have been on behalf of drug cartels operating in the area.

“Mexican military are oftentimes working hand in glove with the cartels. The Mexican military has routinely crossed the border in areas that Border Patrol agents are actively tracking or seizing drug loads. Inevitably the Mexican military claim they got lost, that the border was not clearly marked, or in extreme cases fire on agents to cover their retreat,” National Border Patrol Council Spokesman Shawn Moran exclusively tells Townhall. “Ajo, AZ Border Patrol agents have had several incidents like this over the years where they have taken shots from the Mexican military. The cartels’ resources are nearly limitless and it would not surprise me if they “rented” the cover by the Mexican military helicopter in this incident.”

Yes indeed, our Marine takes a "wrong turn" and now sets in a jail, yet the Mexican ARMY can fly across and shoot at our LEOs with a mere "apology".. Feelin the love are we?

edit: thanks for the reminder BK,,and now ill ask where the outrage is from the panel here over the fact that a foreign army has shot at our LEOS, not just a "stand off" as in Bunkerville, but an air attack.

Ive said it before and ill say it again- screw pakistan, libya, iran, iraq, if there is any where we need troops it is now our southern border, and if any where needs a war, it is Mexico, that fake govt and the cartels. There is no valid reason on earth why S/C American countrys should be so poor in their demographics other than rampant corruption that infects the USA.

Good fences make for good neighbors sayeth the poet Robert Frost
more info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Fence_Act_of_2006

"Robert Frost. 1875–

Mending Wall

SOMETHING there is that doesn't love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.
The work of hunters is another thing:
I have come after them and made repair
Where they have left not one stone on stone,
But they would have the rabbit out of hiding,
To please the yelping dogs. The gaps I mean,
No one has seen them made or heard them made,
But at spring mending-time we find them there.
I let my neighbor know beyond the hill;
And on a day we meet to walk the line
And set the wall between us once again.
We keep the wall between us as we go.
To each the boulders that have fallen to each.
And some are loaves and some so nearly balls
We have to use a spell to make them balance:
"Stay where you are until our backs are turned!"
We wear our fingers rough with handling them.
Oh, just another kind of outdoor game,
One on a side. It comes to little more:
He is all pine and I am apple-orchard.
My apple trees will never get across
And eat the cones under his pines, I tell him.
He only says, "Good fences make good neighbors."
Spring is the mischief in me, and I wonder
If I could put a notion in his head:
"Why do they make good neighbors? Isn't it
Where there are cows? But here there are no cows.
Before I built a wall I'd ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offence.
Something there is that doesn't love a wall,
That wants it down!" I could say "Elves" to him,
But it's not elves exactly, and I'd rather
He said it for himself. I see him there,
Bringing a stone grasped firmly by the top
In each hand, like an old-stone savage armed.
He moves in darkness as it seems to me,
Not of woods only and the shade of trees.
He will not go behind his father's saying,
And he likes having thought of it so well
He says again, "Good fences make good neighbors." "

........although it seems to me he is intimating otherwise.

Abolish all of these absurd drug laws and these cartels disappear overnight. Imagine the blood and money spent on fighting certain types of foliage from crossing an imaginary line in the desert.

Damn those Mexicans for fighting drug cartels like we want them to!

Yeah so the problem with getting all your "news" from Breitbart dot com is that it will be entirely tailored toward inciting reactionary people like yourself and not at all on the truth. The US Border Patrol (the guys who were actually there) say the helicopter went
100 yards
over the border. In helicopter terms thats about enough distance to say "oh sh#t we crossed the border" turn around and come back. I like how your author also says they used "lethal force" given that nobody was injured or killed. But I mean where else are you going to go for quality news and information, Patdollard dot com? Those guys are crazy!

A good fence. Here's to good neighbors!

The person in the photo above is brown and has one of those funny Ns with the ~ tilde thinggie in her surname ... at least she did until she changed it to a proper Polack name.

We'd better alert the tools, she may be on the wrong side.

So i see there is NO OUTRAGE at a foreign army taking shots at our LEOs. But let our own citzenry stand up to some and you all bawl like babys.. The exact opposite of what should be.

I can a=only assume your all happy to see diseases making comebacks here after decades worth of effort to see them gone from America. You must be thrilled that Central and South American little girls are being raped by others also invading our borders. NO BIG DEAL right? Youve no problem with child dumping or abuse that is common place on the southern border.. Coolio.. And by golly-by all means let MILLIONS enter here illegally- what possibly could be the problem there right? We have plenty of jobs- no un employment and certainly no housing shortages and we can all delight with having to pay another 100% increase in your taxes to support them eh! Bitchin that..And soooo what if some foreign military shoots at our police-- no big deal there..

Gawd damm,, if our GREATEST GENERATION had acted like some of you we would all be talking German or Japanese.. And SCREW all those GOOD FOLKS who wait for their time to qualify to become citizens here too- after all , WTF are they thinking- they could just get to mexico and stroll on over- no tests, no qualifiers, no nuthin-- in short, the worlds WORST IMMIGRATION policy bar none. Why bother with being LEGAL.. Illegal is for everyone.

It's a serious problem.

The Mexican military is in conspiracy with the Mexican drug cartel. Our US Borfer Patrol knows this. I have a good friend who is a US Border patrol agent and he is very aware of the truth. They all are. There is all kinds of evidence of this, yet our current administration doesn't want the truth to be known. Our current administration does nothing to help turn this around.

Turning the morality of our nation on its head and upside down seems to be the push with Obama and his administration before he leaves office.

Adonai help us!

Go trolling for garbage "news" guess what you'll get?

Fortunately though, when I checked the local El Paso paper, while this wasn't mentioned, the Psychedelic Furs are coming to town.

I agree that the cartels are as big a threat to our country as any terrorist organization and the history of corruption makes their government untrustworthy

Garbage news?? Lemme guess you think it to be trivial if its not on MSNBC,, ABC or CBS??? Have you asked yourself WHY its not on those? Have you asked yourself why the mainstream medias hardly report ANYTHING these days that isnt dictated to them by the current administration? Naw ,, probably not.

There were other large populations in the past that acted the very same way. Those under Nazi Germany for instance,, but never mind that history lesson..Could NEVER happen here right? Certainly no mass spying by govt officials against the citizenry contrary to a constitution, or abuse of executive powers, or biased actions by collecting agencys such as the IRS. And all of our cabinet and reps- honest as the day is long right? Certainly none could ever just work on in their jobs being in contempt of Congressional courts or any of the like..
