29 incidents of MEXICAN MILITARY ENCOUNTER on US SOIL
Of 29 Incidents, 17 Involved Armed Mexican Government Personnel
(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today released a U.S. Border Patrol report titled, “Mexican Government Incidents – 2006 Fiscal Year Report,” obtained under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). But for Judicial Watch’s September, 2007 FOIA request, this information would not have been made public. The report describes 29 confirmed incidents in 2006 along the U.S.- Mexican border involving Mexican military and/or law enforcement personnel, 17 of which involved armed Mexican government agents. Among the incidents cited:
MEXICAN MILITARY ENCOUNTER (ARMED/INTENTIONAL) EL PASO – FORT HANCOCK STATION – At 2 P.M. on January 3, 2006, [Troopers] attempted to apprehend three vehicles believed to be smuggling contraband on I-10…As the vehicles approached the border, [Troopers] stated that a Mexican Military Humvee armed with a .50 caliber weapon and several soldiers were seen assisting smugglers return to Mexico…Officers then noticed several armed subjects dressed in fatigue type clothing unload the contraband into the Humvee. These subjects set fire to the stalled vehicle before leaving the area…
MEXICAN POLICE INCURSION (ARMED/INTENTIONAL) TUCSON NOGALES STATION – On June 2, 2006, a Border Patrol Agent assigned to the Nogales, Arizona station encountered two Mexican Police Officers that had illegally entered into the U.S. one mile west of the Mariposa Port of Entry…the Mexican Police Officers ran back into Mexico when ordered [by Border Patrol] to remain for questioning.
MEXICAN MILITARY INCURSION (ARMED/INTENTIONAL) EL CENTRO SECTOR – CALEXICO STATION – On September 16, 2006, a Border Patrol Agent assigned to the Calexico, California Station observed an individual in an olive drab uniform with a possible Mexican flag on the shoulder approximately 100 yards north of the International Border near the Calexico POE. The individual appeared to be carrying a sidearm and was running southbound to Mexico through the vehicle lanes of the Calexico POE.
The document also states that between 1996 and September 30, 2006 there were 253 confirmed incursions into the United States by Mexican government personnel. Prior to release to Judicial Watch, the Department of Homeland Security evaluated the information in the report as “For Official Use Only” and containing “Law Enforcement Sensitive Information.” Additional Mexican government incursion reports for 2003 through 2005 are available on the Judicial Watch Internet site at: http://judicialwatch.org/5898.shtml.
“These documents not only show the dangerous and chaotic situation at the Mexican border, but also the complicity of some Mexican government agents in violating U.S. law,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The U.S. government must begin to take these incidents more seriously, publicize them and take measures to bring the crisis at our border under control.”

If that's not a declaration of war, what is?
Send the Marines down so we can give them a proper military welcome next time."I have an open door policy on tickets ... if I have to open my door, you are getting a ticket. If I turn on those lights, somebody has to pay the electric bill."

Am I kicking a dead horse and no one else cares about this problem. I cannot believe that only one person responded. Our officers are getting engaged by another nations military and/or militia members its not only border agents but state and local law enforcement officer who are in danger and no one seems to be outraged that this is going on

I think we all painfully realize that the U.S. Government has basically abandoned the concept of border security over the past 15+ years. I remain hopeful that the upcoming elections will bring us a Chief Executive and Commander in Chief who will consider this nation's security as paramount, especially in dealing with our borders.
I was (and still am) a supporter of President Bush. I don't expect that every President in this country will be perfect in his administration, however in regard to border and immigration issues, I am terribly disappointed in his demonstration of a lack of "resolve". I also feel that this administration's refusal to stand behind these agents involved in border security is inexcusable.

I'm with you BEK, but I don't really know what to say.
I'm guessing the government is too scared to take action against these morons. Who knows...."Like" us on facebook! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Offic...93147194083228
