There have been at least two dozen instances of Mexican military crossing our southern borders in the last four years. It is not clear whether these incursions also include Mexican police and/or military helicopters flying over the homes of America citizens inside the United States. Mexico claims the current incident on January 26th, was an accident, that there was no defined borders marked and that the men were mistakenly inside U.S. borders for only a few minutes, but according to U.S. authorities, the incursion lasted for 35 minutes, with both sides drawing weapons, and the situation “tense.” Senator Tom Coburn asked if it’s possible these two men were hired to assist drug smugglers. According to a Texas professor, “many are essentially a functional asset of the cartels.” Two video below, both excellent.
[January 26] The latest encounter began at 8:53 a.m., when Border Patrol Agent Justin Hays spotted “two subjects entering the United States approximately 2.5 miles west of the Sasabe (Ariz.) Port of Entry,” according to the report. Agent David Olaya responded to the area and reported seeing subjects who appeared to be Mexican military personnel about 50 yards north of the border.
At 9:20 a.m., Olaya said, he “positively identified the two individuals in tan, digital camouflage uniforms, on foot traveling westbound, on the United States side of the International Boundary Fence Line,” the report states.
Confronting them, “both parties drew their weapons,” the report said. The Mexican soldiers were carrying what was described as “G3 long arms” — an apparent reference to assault-style weapons — and identified themselves as members of the Mexican military’s 80th Battalion.
The report said the men identified themselves as Carlos Antique Juarez and Jorge Alberto Hernandez-Morales. But Olaya noted that the name tapes on their uniforms “did not coincide with the names provided. One, in fact, was partially covered.” Juarez’s name tag said “Diaz”; Hernandez-Morales’ tag showed only “Rue.”
The soldiers told U.S. agents that they had been pursuing three suspects from Mexico. But when Olaya called for backup from the Border Patrol’s Tucson sector, the two Mexicans retreated over the border. Source: LA Times
Not only have Mexican military helicopters been documented over U.S. airspace, they’ve been documented “touching down” in Texas in “a federal wildlife park south of Penitas,” an area off-limits to American citizens. In Zapata County, Texas “a Mexican military helicopter was hovering over homes on the Texas side of the Rio Grande. The Rio Grande? Not a difficult-to-see from the air, demarcation of a sovereign United State. Look at this from the 2010 article:
As violence continued Thursday with a highway shootout in Tamaulipas, a Senate subcommittee in Washington heard testimony that drug cartels are trying to infiltrate U.S. agencies along the border, with corruption cases among Homeland Security personnel on the rise.
James Tomsheck, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection assistant commissioner, told the panel the drug cartels operating in Mexico are making a concerted effort to infiltrate CBP, and the agency is responding with more screening of job applicants with polygraph tests and background investigations. Corruption cases were opened last year on 576 CBP officers and Border Patrol agents.
With the lawless example of Obama and Eric Holder’s DOJ, it’s no great surprise the Border Patrol would go rogue, just like their government.
With a Mexican navy helicopter (2011) whirring low over a rural community on the U.S. side of the Rio Grande, an American military veteran armed with marksmanship skills and a hefty rifle hankered from the ground to shoot it down.
“Don’t do it,” Zapata County Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez Jr. recalled warning the man on that Sunday afternoon last year.
The flight is one of as many as 10 in the past 17 months in which South Texans – in broad daylight – have spotted Mexican helicopters hovering overhead. The aircraft was so close to the ground military personnel could be seen inside, Gonzalez said.
While an array of U.S. federal and state agencies declined to comment, a Mexican government official confirmed that Mexican military helicopters have permission to use Texas as a staging ground for missions into Mexico to fight drug traffickers.
“Yes, I can tell you they exist, they are going on,” said the official, who has knowledge of the flights. “Certainly, for the last couple of years,” he said, noting that the U.S. government also has permission to fly unmanned surveillance planes in Mexico. Source: Houston Chronicle
The first video below is the story of U.S. journalists threatened with death for reporting border incursion stories. The area is under constant danger from the Sinaloa cartel — you remember Sinaloa, the cartel headed by recently arrested Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman or Joaquin Guzman Loera, which the Obama administration provided with weapons. The second video is Sheriff Babeau saying drug cartels have taken up territory all the way to metro-Phoenix, and the Obama administration, without consulting Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, put up signs warning that parts of Arizona are off-limits to Arizonans and all U.S. citizens.
I don’t want a foreign military helicopter hovering above my home. If we close the borders, there will be far fewer invasions into the U.S. by drug cartels, and we won’t need foreign military on our soil, or in our airspace. It makes so much sense, such a no-brainer that the only solution is to boot almost everyone out of Congress and start over, right after we impeach and convict Obama and Holder, which could happen before the November election, if we only had a spine.
