U.S. Border Patrol agents on the American side of the Rio Grande were forced to take cover Friday night when high-caliber weaponry was fired at them from the Mexican side of the river, sources told FoxNews.com.
The weapons were fired at the U.S. side of the riverbank in the area of the Rincon Peninsula across the Rio Grande from Reynosa, Mexico, at about 8:30 p.m., sources said. Bullets ricocheted into an area where Border Patrol agents were positioned, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, told FoxNews.com.
POLL: Do you support immediate deportation of illegal aliens?
Border Patrol sources confirmed Gohmert’s account, and said the shots may have been fired by .50-caliber weapons.
“We don’t have any armor that can stop a .50-caliber round, so our Border Patrol agents had to take cover when the rounds were richocheting around them,” said Gohmert, who has been in the area for the last week to get a first-hand look at the border situation.
Not even a low level banana republic like the one south of the border respects the US anymore. Not only do they ran across at will, bring drugs and deseases at will, fly in and out anytime they please, now they even shoot the border patrol. What do they care? Whats ostupido going to do? Nothing. Go to another fundraiser.
Federico that just about summed it up to the T!! I agree completely!!
Hey, he might play a little golf......!!!
...as opposed to a LOT of golf....
It's high time for another United States invasion of Mexico. We had to before the American Civil War, we had to do it after WW1 with General Pershing, and it's time again. It's time to conquer Mexico once for all and make it the 51st state!
Yeah, frankly ,we would just be importing more Graft, than we already have, if possible. The only thing they have is their Oil, and we already have that. I favor stopping all NAFTA Trade, search any, and all trucks coming across the Border, at length, as in unloading each 18 wheeler to examine contents, and our closing off access to their Border, by our Citizens, then cut off any and all aid. Just as a beginning, so they are "Trade Partners" that gives them no right to fire on us!!
Yes biggest mistake General Scott did was not annex Mexico. Lets go down there take the country over once and for all. Clean up the drug cartels and make our southern boarder manageable by it being shorter.
I just mentioned that concept in another blog, or earlier in this one, Peter, except I went one step further by including all of Central America. I also include the option of territory rights. I do not know. It would take someone with true Central American knowledge and military knowledge to discuss this correctly. I know not nearly enough. Maybe the containment of just Mexico is wise at first. Like I said, I know only in part. Meanwhile,...
Dr. Peter Page, Federico Hernandez, and William Quayle, have you each had enough.............yet? Are you ready to stand up for your rights and heritage? Have you finally been threatened enough where you will do something? So have I, Patriot, so have I. I am with you; even where we disagree, I am still with you. We need to dispose of these twelve senators and replace them with true conservatives that we can support: Mark Begich (D-Alaska), Mark Pryor (D-Arkansas), Mark Udall (D-Colorado), Bruce Braley (D-Iowa), Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana), Gary Peters (D-Michigan), Al Franken (D-Minnesota), John Walsh (D-Montana), Jeanne Shaheen (D-New Hampshire), Kay Hagan (D-North Carolina), Jeff Merkley (D-Oregon), Mark Warner (D-Virginia)
In the event that you have not been there yet, or that you have not recorded your thinking yet, or that you did not even know that they existed, I am inviting you to three discussions that have started on the subject of "What would you do if you were the (new) president." The results of these blogs, and similar future discussions, will be forwarded to Presidential candidates and other federal candidates who align themselves with the Tea Party Patriots. I have provided you with two forms of links. You can either Control-Click the discussion's title or Control-Click the address. When you are finished writing on this discussion, please use the provided links to go to:
If you were the new President,
what would be an avenue you would explore?
Please respond first with YES or NO
and then offer an explanation if you so desire.
We don't need to invade, just get out people out of Iraq and Afghanistan and put them on the southern border with orders to apprehend or kill invaders. But, with the current state of affairs, both parties included, the only people our military will be ordered to shoot are patriots.
We need to rid the American continent of marxists, communists and demonRATS.
