Mexican soldiers cross into U.S. chasing U.S. citizens

Mexican soldiers cross into U.S. chasing U.S. citizens

El Paso, Texas - A Mexican Army Humvee with a machine gun and several soldiers on foot entered into the U.S. through the Columbus Port of Entry early Saturday morning.

The incident happened at about 2:35 a.m. Saturday when the Mexican soldiers were chasing three U.S. citizens, according to Customs and Border Patrol spokesperson Roger Maier.

The group of soldiers was confronted by CBP inspectors and the soldiers quickly turned around on orders from one of their officers.

A few minutes later, a Mexican Army commander arrived and apologized to the U.S. inspectors, claiming the soldiers had been pursuing a car that ran one of their checkpoints just south of the border.

The three U.S. citizens and their vehicle were inspected by CBP and the trio was allowed to continue into the US.

I have NO idea why American citizens were in Mexico at that time of night. Well, actually, that’s not an entirely true statement. I do have an idea, but I will not engage in speculation.

I do need to ask though, WHY hasn’t this story been seen in the MSM?

The main focus of MY post is about the dangers of going to Mexico, living along the Mexican border and the threats faced by Americans here in the USA, from Mexican drug dealers, and the Mexican army itself.

The U.S. State Department issued a travel advisory for Americans who visit Mexico, citing Ciudad Juarez as a hotbed of criminal activity. A large Mexican metropolis in Chihuahua State bordering El Paso, Texas, Juarez is Mexico’s deadliest narcotics-war zone with two criminal gangs fighting for power – over city streets and drug-smuggling routes into the United States.

For most people, that above notice would be all it took, a word to the wise, so to speak.

Apparently, wise is something that a lot of Americans are not. If they were, they wouldn’t be going to Mexico, and there would be a massive cry to secure the border.

“A Nation Without Borders Is Not A Nation” — Ronald Reagan

It may already be too late. Our borders are a moot point at this time, the infiltration has already taken place. We may very well be compromised by the enemy within! Even the great Ronald Reagan screwed the pooch on the ILLEGALS and amnesty issue.

The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), also Simpson-Mazzoli Act (Pub.L. 99-603, 100 Stat. 3359, signed by President Ronald Reagan on November 6, 1986) is an Act of Congress which reformed United States immigration law. The Act made it illegal to knowingly hire or recruit illegal immigrants (immigrants who do not possess lawful work authorization), required employers to attest to their employees’ immigration status, and granted amnesty to certain illegal immigrants who entered the United States before January 1, 1982 and had resided there continuously. The Act also granted a path towards legalization to certain agricultural seasonal workers and immigrants who had been continuously and illegally present in the United States since January 1, 1982.

U.S. releases first part of drug aid for Mexico

U.S. releases first part of drug aid for Mexico

MEXICO CITY (AP) — The U.S. government finally released the first part of a $400 million aid package Wednesday to support Mexico’s police and soldiers in their fight against drug cartels.

The money comes at a critical time: Mexico’s death toll from drug violence has soared above 4,000 so far this year, and drug-related murders and kidnappings are spilling over the U.S. border as well.

U.S. Ambassador Tony Garza formally released $197 million at a signing ceremony in Mexico City. The rest will be disbursed throughout the year.

Garza said the Merida Initiative aid will enable the U.S. and Mexico to work more closely, sharing information on the cartels in real time.

And the money is, without a doubt, already filtering into the hands of the drug lords.

Mexico, is one of the most corrupt nations on earth, ALL of Mexico. Not just a few *bad apples*, all parts of the Mexican government are as crooked as a dogs hind leg. Nearly ALL of their officials take payoffs or simply look the other way. It’s called FEAR, and the drug lords have instilled FEAR in the Mexican police and army.

We have allotted $400M in this battle? The drug lords make payoffs bigger than that. The drug lords give up a $20M shipment to get the $250M shipment across the border. It’s just money, and the drug lords have more of it than the American people do. Money is what makes them powerful. Money buys the guns and bombs. Money bribes the many corrupt officials that are needed to make the drug business even MORE profitable than it already is. American dollars. From American drug users.

But many questions remain about the direction of this drug war, and both Mexico and Colombia, where 90% of U.S.-bound cocaine is produced, worry they’ll be handcuffed by concerns about human rights and corruption once Barack Obama is president.

When you have the most liberal Senator ever become POTUS, you get the most liberal POTUS ever. You KNOW that Obama is going to be BIG on *human rights*, we can’t be doing things like shooting the drug dealers DOWN where we find em now can we?? And God forbid we actually close the U.S. border with Mexico.

The aid to Mexico — which includes no cash — includes helicopters and surveillance aircraft, airport inspection equipment and case-tracking software to help police share real-time intelligence. It also supports Mexican efforts to weed out corrupt police, improve the judicial system and protect witnesses.

No cash?? You don’t think that the Mexicans haven’t already made arrangements for some of this hardware to just disappear?? *Poof*, gone. Just like that, and money in hand for the transaction.

And it’s going to help to weed out corrupt Mexican police? Read this: Nearly half of Mexican cops fail police tests, and ask yourself one question, IF something like 49% of Mexican cops are unfit for duty, HOW did they become cops to begin with?

Corruption! Plain and simple. A payoff to the right guy and I can pick a town and be named Chief of their police, it’s THAT simple. From the top of the heap to the very bottom of the stinking pile, Mexico is corrupt. And we’re financing them in so many ways…

Nearly half of Mexican cops fail police tests

November 28th, 2008 . by TexasFred

Nearly half of Mexican cops fail police tests

MEXICO CITY (AP) - Almost half of Mexican police officers examined this year have failed background and security tests, a figure that rises to nearly 9 of 10 cops in the border state of Baja California, the government reported Thursday.

The number of officers scoring a “not recommendable” rating on the tests averaged 49 percent nationwide, well above the 42 percent who got a “recommendable” rating.

The tests - which involved lie detectors, drug tests, psychological profiling and tests of personal wealth, among other measures - were intended to root out corrupt, incompetent and unfit officers. The report did not break down how many officers failed each category.

In Baja California, home to the border city of Tijuana, some 89 percent of police tested failed, and only 4 percent were judged “recommendable.” Officers there have been periodically disarmed, detained and investigated by federal investigators and army troops on suspicion of aiding drug traffickers.

Can you imagine the hue and cry of the American people if this were our standard? Can you imagine the actions that the NAACP, the ACLU and every other *civil rights* organization would take it this were the accepted level of professionalism of American police?

Mexico doesn’t hold their police to standards that OUR officers were held to 40 years ago, maybe even further back than that. The level of corruption seen among Mexican police has NEVER been approached by ANY department in the U.S.A., not even by the Chicago P.D. back in the Capone days!

I can understand the fact that there are some decent Mexican people that want to come to this nation simply to earn a decent living and better themselves, and given the level of corruption and sheer incompetence of their police, and truth be told, their army and their very government, I actually don’t blame them. Maybe they come here illegally because in Mexico, LEGAL itself is a moot point, legal, and it’s definition often have much to do with the amount of money you happen to have on you at the moment.

I spent 9 years in El Paso, working on BOTH sides of the border. The El Paso Police and El Paso County Sheriffs Dept were as top shelf as anyone could ask for. The cops on the Mexican side, Front Chih., Chihuahua State Police and Juarez City Police were an entirely different matter, and for the record, I was in El Paso from 1981 until 1990, Americans were not nearly as aware of the ILLEGAL invasion as they are today, but even then, Mexican corruption ran rampant, immigration laws were nonexistent.

Border Patrol did as good a job as they could, given their limited resources, they would round up the illegals and take them back to Juarez by the bus load. In most cases, a quick payoff to a Mexican official was made and the illegals were back in Texas before the Border Patrol bus that took them back was.

Fast forward to 2008, Mexico is even more corrupt, their economy is even worse than it was 25 or 30 years ago and our borders are no stronger. We still have *wetbacks* invading this nation in great numbers, and mixed with them, I am convinced, members of terror organizations that are bringing in guns, grenades and other explosives to use against us, the American people, at a time of their choosing. And that time is not too far in the future I believe.

Mexico is corruption personified, we can’t count on Mexico for anything, yet our borders are still incredibly porous, and with the incoming Obama administration, the borders will NOT be getting any stronger I am guessing. Americans had best be on guard, ever vigilant, we are now at a time in our history where the very survival of this nation is in jeopardy. Look to our current POTUS for some the basic reasons WHY, George Bush spent the last 8 years doing nothing to secure our border with Mexico. Look to his predecessors as well, no U.S. president has done much in the effort to secure our border since Operation Wetback in 1953.

With the obviously sad state of the Mexican police, and Mexico itself, if We, The People don’t make a stand soon, we won’t have anything left to stand for!!

Border patrol agent held at gunpoint

August 6th, 2008 . by TexasFred
Officers fear Mexican military encounters will turn violent

A U.S. Border Patrol agent was held at gunpoint Sunday night by members of the Mexican military who had crossed the border into Arizona, but the soldiers returned to Mexico without incident when backup agents responded to assist.

Agents assigned to the Border Patrol station at Ajo, Ariz., said the Mexican soldiers crossed the international border in an isolated area about 100 miles southwest of Tucson and pointed rifles at the agent, who was not identified.

It was unclear what the soldiers were doing in the United States, but U.S. law enforcement authorities have long said that current and former Mexican military personnel have been hired to protect drug and migrant smugglers.

“Unfortunately, this sort of behavior by Mexican military personnel has been going on for years,” union Local 2544 of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) said on its Web page. “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.’

Folks, I am going to say this in the most easily understood way I know how. We are AT WAR along our border with Mexico, I know it, you probably know it, the Border Patrol knows it, everyone in this USA knows it except for the brain-dead left, the FAUX intellectuals that pose as Conservatives, and that Mexican loving moron that sits in the Oval Office.

Since 1996, there have been more than 200 confirmed incursions by the Mexican military into the United States.

Sunday night’s incident bears similarities to other incursions by armed men in Mexican military gear in recent years:

The incident occurred in the same area where heavily armed Mexican soldiers riding in a Humvee shot at a Border Patrol agent in 2002. A .50-caliber bullet ripped through the agent’s rear window as he sped away.

Mexican officials denied at the time that the shooters were Mexican soldiers, saying they were criminals using military uniforms. It is a position they steadfastly have maintained.

Hate speech?? Oh well, a few of the afore mentioned brain-dead posers will think so and will deny that we are at war. They will call me an evil racist for what I believe to be the only solution to this problem, but that’s OK too, by far, many folks KNOW me for what I really am and are rapidly seeing my recent detractor for what HE really is as well.

Place U.S. troops on our border with Mexico, issue specific orders, SHOOT TO KILL, anything crossing that border at anything other than a LEGAL border crossing. If it just so happens that those ILLEGAL crossings are being made by members of the Mexican Army, too damned bad, shoot them down like the INVASION force that they really are.
