    Mexican military chopper crosses the border, shoots at agents

    Mexican military chopper crosses the border, shoots at agents | KVOA.com | Tucson, Arizona
    Do you think Obama will address this? Or is giving 500 million dollars to rebels in Syria thousands of miles away more important?

    TUCSON - News 4 Tucson has learned a Mexican military helicopter travelled across the border and fired on U.S. Border Patrol agents.

    He'll address neither, as he's too busy drafting an executive order which directly contradicts laws regarding illegal aliens and crossing the border.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    What is the reason for him doing this, in your opinion?

    Is it true that the Mexican authorities apologised and declared it a mistake.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    I wonder, .......... what would happen should we blow the chopper out of the air ...? ... and say "OOPS !! We're sorry"

    Thinkin' .. this was a test; for someone other than Mexico.... feel a conspiracy ?.....

    An AQ operative acting the crazed Mexican pilot swoops across the border and before the Fed realizes there will not be an apology ... takes out a portion of Ft.Huachuca/Sierra Vista.

    This is not the first incursion. Yeah take the apology and pour another cup of coffee.


    hmmmm,

    Don't know for sure, it was in the OP linked article
    "The incident occurred after midnight and before 6 a.m. Helicopter flew into the U.S. and fired on two U.S. Border Patrol agents. The incident occurred west of the San Miguel Gate on the Tohono O'odham Indian Nation. The agents were unharmed. The helicopter went back into Mexico. Mexico then contacted U.S. authorities and apologized for the incident."

    I take most news reporting with a grain of salt.

    It is an international incident involving the US.

    Hard to nail it down with any specificity. I think Democrats overall want immigration reform first and foremost because minorities are in their voting wheel house. These are mostly future voters if an amnesty is passed. I don't think Obama can get amnesty passed so, he forces the issue by ignoring immigration laws, second he passes by executive order a way around immigration laws and allows hundreds of thousands maybe millions to cross the border to either force the hand of Congress or if they do not budge, bypass the congress. That may in and of itself be illegal, however someone would have to take the issue to the courts and that would take potentially years int he future while the damage is done in the present.

    How this will affect his legacy is unknown. The unintended consequences is always something to be wary of and I'm very sure drug cartels and other unsavory characters are making the trip over in the crowds just like terrorists may be. The threat of disease spreading, costs of local towns and even the states may be stretched. Increases in drug use, violence, rape, terrorism may be in our future because we did not federally apply the law - why that law is not being applied is IMO pure politics. Not sure if you saw this yet:

    Nancy Pelosi to travel to border, meet detained minors - Lauren French - POLITICO.com

    Pelosi is going to use these people as a backdrop for pictures. She's not going out there because only she wants to... is she going at the direction of the President - maybe.

    I don't think this needs first page address. Mexico is pretty friendly and we should just find out, what caused this off the wall behavior.
