A Border Patrol agent patrolling the US-Mexican border in San Ysidro was brutally attacked by a group of four male assailants illegally entering the U.S. As the agent responded to the suspected illegal aliens, they ran towards Mexico to elude apprehension.

The agent was able to approach one of the suspects, while the other three returned to Mexico. The encounter between the agent and the suspect instantly became confrontational as the suspect struck the agent in the face with a closed fist.

While the agent attempted to gain control of the combative assailant, the three suspects in Mexico began throwing rocks at the agent. Two additional agents soon arrived to the scene and successfully took the suspect into custody while retreating to a safe distance from the assailants in Mexico. Both the agent and the assailant did not sustain any significant injuries during this incident.

The 30-year-old assailant in custody is currently facing charges for assaulting a federal agent and reentering the U.S. as a prior deportee.

Violence against Border Patrol continues

Border Patrol should have shot first and if any of these asshats survived, asked questions later.

Now they are reporting that a US Marshal has been found dead in Mexico. They need to send troops to the border.

It is as if Mexico wants a war.

So help me God: if that nation provokes it-----------we need to punish that nation severely.

Needless to say: I would rather see idiots like those rock throwers reigned in before things turn truly ugly.

according to you this is the answer..war...
1.Mexico is our third world consumer more than europe combine
2. Mexico has 7 times more military manpower than Iraq or 2 irans
3. 5 more man enter military age than Iraq.........................
4. Mexican labor force is 7 times bigger than Iraqs
5. the country is 5 times bigger than Iraq.
6.Mexico is 15 times stronger economically than iraq

This I will say:

If we hit Mexico (I still think cooler heads on both sides will prevail)------------that country will go down very quickly.

As it stands: Mexico is showing sings of destroying itself already...........and, it would not surprise me to see Nuevo Leon, etc. pull a 'Texas 1836', leave Mx and petition to join the USA.

well I guess will see..Its my fault trying to reason with some people in this forums, just getting fatter and pimples on my butt discussing nonthinking reasonable solutions..

if hillary, obama our highest leaders of our country has said there say so, where they stand on all of these issues who care what most of us say here, I think thruthfully we used this forums to express our stress that we live caused by these problem. nothing else.

nafta was created for a reason and it was to counterbalance the european union, asean, mercusur, andean community, saarc

It does not have to cost $100 billion a year. Deputize every armed citizen in the US and turn us loose in defense of our country. Honey, you better believe I'll be there with the flag in one hand and a shotgun in the other.

You lack of knowledge is showing.
If an army has a 5 to 1 advantage over you but is lacking skill, training, and hardware not to mention resolve it would hardly be a battle. Vietnam did well because they had resolve. Mexico does not. Why esle are the good citizens constantly trying to escape?
The Mexican army v.s that of the USA?
Now how would Mexico's airfarce match up? Hmmmm Looking grim
Mexico's army v.s thatof the USA? Hmmm those apache gunships and M1A1's are not really challenged are they?
The Mexican navy against the USN? Whoa now we are talking. World war 2 vintage equipment v.s Aegis class cruisers, destroyers and Nimitz class carriers.
Your right it might be a good fight. LOL
Fact is it will never come to that. But we should put our military on the border and let (our) military do its job. Defend the USA from this invasion.

Memo to Mexico: do not antagonize us and there will be no problems.

Read that take back your citizens here in the USA illegally and we will be glad to no longer sell guns to your drug cartels.

Again: a fortified border will work wonders.
