US Border Patrol Agents Held at Gunpoint by Mexican Military Inside US Borders

Yes, you read the title correctly. The administration that refuses to seal the border, tells our Border Patrol agents to throw things, run and hide and above all else, don’t use their guns, which we are told they train with using millions of rounds each year, is finally seeing the fruit of their policies. On January 26 of this year, two heavily armed camouflaged soldiers from Mexico actually crossed 50 yards inside Arizona and held American Border Patrol agents at gunpoint in a tense confrontation.

Judicial Watch reports:

Armed with assault-style weapons, the Mexican soldiers retreated back south after a 35-minute standoff as if nothing ever happened and the Obama administration just let it slide. The unbelievable foray was made public by a mainstream newspaper that obtained government documents with alarming details of the January 26 incident. Specifically, the paper cites the Border Patrol Foreign Military Incursion report and a separate letter from U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske, an Obama appointee who was recently sworn in.

The Mexican soldiers were spotted by a Border Patrol agent entering the U.S. about 2.5 miles west of Sasabe Arizona shortly before 9 a.m. A second federal agent 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, according to the report obtained by the newspaper. The Mexicans misidentified themselves to U.S. Border agents and claimed to be pursuing drug smugglers, the government documents say.

Kerlikowske admits that the intruders were “confirmed members of the Mexican military” but he asserts that U.S. border officials determined that no further action was necessary involving the matter. Like a loyal Obama lapdog Kerlikowske claims military incursions from Mexico are infrequent though he was apparently forced to admit that there were 23 incidents in the Tucson and Yuma sectors of Arizona since 2010, including three this fiscal year alone.

Mexico denied the altercation, claiming that the men were drug smugglers in military uniforms.

However, Ariel Moutsatsos, minister for press and public affairs at the Mexican Embassy, told reporters, “Those individuals were part of a counter-narcotics operation, which had taken place a few minutes prior on the Mexican side of the border. The two members of the Mexican army did not see any sign notifying them that they were crossing the border.”

Uh huh, and what led them to hold US Border Patrol agents at gunpoint after failing not to know where they were? We didn’t get an answer to that, and a claim that they didn’t know they were across the border is ridiculous.
