Mexico objects to alleged border incursion over fire

Associated Press
Mar. 7, 2007 07:42 AM
MEXICO CITY - Mexico has sent a diplomatic note to the United States objecting to an alleged incursion into Mexican territory by U.S. Border Patrol agents in Arizona trying to extinguish a fire, the country's Foreign Relations Department said Tuesday.

The incursion allegedly took place on Monday, as Border Patrol agents stationed in Sonoita were trying to quash a brush fire on the U.S. side that quickly spread into Mexico, the department said.

I couldn't firgure out why we even bothered putting the fire out, but my husband said the Border Patrol probably realized the Mexicans would never get it under control and in due time it would come roaring back across the border. Only this time a massive conflagration. So dousing it was a pre-emptive strike of sorts.

I hear you - It's not like we're wanting to SNEAK in as they do here. Double standards is the right words......

Default jail time

Maybe they are looking for another excuse to send more of our border patrol agents to jail.

Now if they didnt put out the fire we would have been accused of being inhumane.
