Sources tell CBS News that two U.S. I.C.E. (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents were shot in Mexico in the line of duty today approximately 100 miles outside Mexico City. One agent is in critical condition and the other is in stable condition, sources say.

The investigations probably stop when the bribes come in. Too bad Obama will just put his "Kiddie" gloves on when it comes to this.

It's going to take a much publicized out and out attack on US soil before anything gets done unfortunately.

They're reporting that one has died.

All of this relates to US border security and how because of illegal immigration and the drug war with the cartels no American is safe in this country.

Watch how this is downplayed. After all, we wouldn’t want to do anything to cast aspersions on our good neighbors to the south.

Its "on"? LOL... Is that sarcasm?
My prayers are with the family of the agent killed in Mexico.

HOWEVER... He was killed in the line of duty and that is what people risk when they choose jobs that put their lives at risk such as his, police officers, prison guards, etc. It comes with the job and we are expected to sign a form waiving our rights. That is the truth of the matter. Both countries have already vowed to find the killers and bring them to justice.

Secondly, WHAT WERE THE ICE AGENTS DOING in San Luis Potosi? It is no where near the border and if you travel by car, it takes about a day to get there from the border. If anyone knows, please do share.

Lastly, the Mexican government has already sent their apologies to the families of the agents and to our government. There will be no beef over this.

Quote:
Mexico energetically condemned the murder of an agent of the Service of Immigration and Customs of the United States (IT HOISTS, by his abbreviations in English), happened in Potosí San Luis, in an attack in which another official was wounded from that country.

The Secretariat of Outer Relations (To be) condemned “this serious act of violence” and sent solidarity messages, as much to the estadunidense government as to the relatives of the attacked officials, when they journeyed by a highway of Potosí San Luis.

In an official notice, the chancellery indicated that the federal authorities realise the corresponding investigations already to clarify the happened thing and to take to the guilty before justice.

Erm, you do know that ICE has offices in other countries than the USA right?

The 2 agents that were shot were assigned to the ICE Attache office in Mexico City.

Perhaps you're confusing ICE agents with Border Patrol?

Read the article again. It did not happen anywhere near the border.

I was not asking where their office was. I was asking what they were doing in San Luis Potosi. I know many work in airports and other such things but if this is not at the border, it is not an illegal immigration issue. Unless...an illegal immigrant tried to board a plane.

I ask the same question. Why were they well into the interior of Mexico - a sovereign nation (like the USA) while the actual border remains wide open and unguarded?

Why guard the so-called border in San Luis Potosi when the real border is still completely open to illegals and drug traffickers and anyone else that wishes to come on in?

I blame our government for this and the push for the North American Union.
