Mexican incursion reports describe incidents involving shots fired on both sides of the border, unmarked helicopters invading U.S. airspace, and drug smuggling. In 2005, Mexican soldiers crossed the border along the Rio Grande Valley. When a Border Patrol Agent went by boat to examine the scene, "the [Border Patrol] Agent on board advised via radio that several Mexican soldiers were pointing their rifles in his direction. The Agent decided for his safety and the safety of the crew to turn back, but advised that the soldiers were still aiming at them." Again in 2005, Border Patrol agents stationed in Tucson "heard four distinct gunshots coming from Mexico. The gunshots were fired when the agents were approximately 10 feet away." On April 23, 2007, in Arizona, "Border Patrol Agents . reported a Mexican military incursion ... in Humvees carrying long arms . The agents continued to back away from the [soldiers] when they heard [one] soldier chamber a round into his rifle. The agents observed . that the military personnel had fanned out in a tactical formation on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico International Boundary."

Close all our overseas bases, bring all our military back from overseas, then place them along our border with Mexico and use our Navy to patrol our southern coast. Mexican military crosses our border, shoot to kill.

Agreed. It is long past time for this country to stop trying to save the world while allowing Americans and America to be annihilated here at home.

Oh puleeze, the majority of those who are masquerading as government, policemen and military officials are on the payrolls of, and aiding and abetting the drug cartels. Mexico and it's uninvited nationals need to stay the hell out of the US. It is unfortunate that we are stuck with that cesspool and its majority corrupt government and the rest of it's unsavory subhuman population of nationals as our "neighbor".

Top Mexico police chief resigns over drug cartel allegations
Mexico's efforts to get to grips with spiralling drug crime and corruption suffered a blow at the weekend when one of the country's top police officers resigned amid allegations that drugs cartels had infiltrated his department.Gerardo Garay, the head of Mexico's military-style federal police force, stepped down to head off suspicion that he was working for a major drugs cartel. "I am resigning because the bloody fight against organised crime makes it our duty to strengthen institutions, which means it is essential to eliminate any shadows of doubt regarding me," Garay told a press conference. "I will put myself at the disposal of the judicial authorities." He denied any wrong in the federal police force, and an official statement from the chief prosecutor's office at the weekend indicated he is not under investigation.

Four Mexican Police Officers Accused of Working for Drug Cartel Flown to Capital for Prosecution

MEXICO CITY — Four police officers and seven civilians accused of working for Mexico's powerful Gulf drug cartel were flown to the capital Sunday for prosecution.
The four municipal officers, detained in Nuevo Laredo, across the border from Laredo, Texas on Saturday, had allegedly funneled police and military information to the cartel by radio, Public Safety Department spokesman Edgar Millan said.
Authorities previously said they were arrested for carrying unregistered guns.

Border drug war backfiring

A report outlining hundreds of incursions into the United States by Mexican armed forces over the past 10 years supports what many officials have known for a long time: The corruption once thought endemic only to Mexico's police forces has spread to its military. The Daily Bulletin reported Sunday on a Department of Homeland Security document that outlines 216 incidents since 1996 where Mexican military personnel crossed the U.S.-Mexican border and were spotted or confronted by the Border Patrol.
Additionally, a map bearing the seal of the president's Office of National Drug Control Policy, dated 2001, shows the locations of 34 of those incursions spread across the southwest United States.

Apparently you don't know about the Mexican Army that brings the drugs and protects the drug runners on our side of the border. Nothing like seeing only one side of an issue.

Kind of makes you wonder why we're in Iraq and Afghanistan, why we've had our civil liberties shredded to bits (Patriot Act??) all in the name of NATIONAL SECURITY and we still have a porous border to the North and South....hmmm?? "Oh, those damn illegal immigrant Messicans"....so much easier than looking at the truth...our corrupt fascist government....

It has been in the news numbers of times. I am not going to research for you. This has gone on for years down at the border. Stop trying to act all prissy about it when the facts happen to be that more often than not, the Mexican Army is up to no good when crossing our border.
