It's interesting that Sean Hannity's report keeps referring to Mexicans who swim across the Rio Grande to avoid detection by the Border Patrol as "immigrants." I think I heard the term "immigrants" over a dozen times as the video showed illegals floating in the river or being arrested by law enforcement officers. Shame on the mainstream media for obfuscating the difference between immigrants and illegal entrants and enemy combatants -- and then showing Border Patrol officers in handcuffs so as to suggest that they are criminals. Even our Mexican puppet government considers the testimony of illegal entrants to be more trustworthy than that of Border Patrol officers, interestingly. Is there some kind of prejudice there?

One final comment, it's amusing that Fox News warns the viewer that the images are "graphic." Are there images that aren't graphic?

I watched the video and for the life of me cannot figure out why the helicopter in the sky didnt not give a warning to swim back or be shot.

The helicopter should have a machine gun on hand and give a fair warning to swim back, if they continue to swim this way, time to open fire.

If they want to kill and harm our border patrol the only way to end it is start shooting.

Please no one jump in and say we should not be shooting the poor illegals. Our guys have their hands tied behind their backs in the situation and that is not fair.

Time to patrol the borders will helicopters with machine guns, I know it is a strong statement but I am sick of our border partol people getting killed and hurt.

Don't feel so bad for them 40 percent of them are those Mexican vermin Ya'll complain about.
Quote:
When Sara G. Guzman, a United States Border Patrol agent, tells her father about chasing illegal aliens through the canyons and scrub along this stretch of rusty frontier fence with Mexico, he says in Spanish: "Yes, I remember. I used to cross there."

Ms. Guzman, an immigrant from Mexico, stakes out the same hillsides here, south of San Diego, where her father clambered illegally into the United States over the years before becoming a legal resident in 1978. She detains mostly people like him, Mexican, but also Central American, and almost always poor: people looking for hope and opportunity in the agricultural fields and construction gangs of California.

It is just one of the many conflicts faced by Hispanic Border Patrol agents -- both American-born and naturalized United States citizens -- who together make up 40 percent of the agency's force. Though Hispanic agents are valued by the Border Patrol for enforcing United States immigration laws and their frequent Spanish language fluency, they are reviled by many in their own community as traitors and are cajoled by illegal aliens they capture with entreaties of cross-border brotherhood.

"Aliens try the guilt trip: 'How can you do this to your own people?' " said Ms. Guzman, who eventually moved legally to California from central Mexico with her family and then became a United States citizen 11 years ago. "After that it's, 'I have nothing in Mexico. You ought to know how things are down there.'
