Border Patrol fires tear gas, pepper spray into Mexico




Associated Press - December 17, 2007 4:45 PM ET

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Border Patrol agents are firing tear gas and pepper-spray across the border into Mexico to repel what the agency says are attacks with rocks, bottles and bricks.

The counteroffensive against suspected smugglers has drawn complaints that innocent families are being caught in the crossfire.

The Border Patrol's top official in San Diego, Mike Fisher, said his agents are taking action because Mexican authorities have been slow to respond.

Mexico's acting consul general in San Diego, Ricardo Pineda, has insisted that U.S. authorities stop firing onto Mexican soil. He met with Border Patrol officials last month after the agency fired tear gas into Mexico.

The agency defended that counterattack, saying agents were being hit with a hail of ball bearings from slingshots in Mexico.

Perhaps they should clean up their own act before offering us their less than valued advice.

What a CROCK of CA CA, mkfarnam!

Mexico feels very comfortable dumping their human garbage on our side of the border yet they complain about a little tear gas!

As far as I'm concerned, we should be tossing hand grenades!
