Mexican Military Holds Border Patrol Agent at Gunpoint

The report is from Local 2544 which is the Union representing Tuscon area Border patrol agents and support personal. They report that this is just the latest in a string of incidents in which Mexican soldiers have attacked or detained our Border Patrol agents:

A Tucson Sector Border Patrol agent was held at gunpoint by the Mexican military last night south of Ajo. Mexican military personnel crossed over the border and pointed rifles at him. Backup units arrived from the Ajo Border Patrol station, and the Mexican military personnel eventually returned to Mexico. Unfortunately, this sort of behavior by Mexican military personnel has been going on for years. They are never held accountable, and the United States government will undoubtedly brush this off as another case of “Oh well, they didn’t know they were in the United States.” A few years ago the Mexican military went a step further and put a .50 calibre rifle round through the rear window of a Border Patrol agent’s patrol vehicle south of Ajo. Nothing was ever done. Nobody was ever held accountable. Particularly galling is the fact that the Mexican military often pulls these stunts in Humvees donated to them by the American taxpayers (although they were apparently on foot this time). We note that Border Patrol agents have historically driven worn-out, junk vehicles.

We will withhold further comment on this incident until we see how our leaders handle it. We don’t have much confidence in most of them.

It is fortunate that this incident didn’t end in a very ugly gunfight.

  2. “Remember the Alamo”

    Time to remember the last decade, too.

    How much does Mexico have on the present Executive and Legislative branches that they can continually get away with crap like this?

  3. well all us gringos are to blame!we need to not wait for our leaders we need to just kick every mexican that we c in the face till they puke blood!!

  4. Legal immigrants from Mexico are just as angry at this nonsense, and many Mexicans love this country and deserve our support and respect. We must never confuse the good people in Mexico with the narco-terror gangs and Marxist groups who are corrupting their country and trying to destroy ours.
