    Mexican military chopper flies into US, shoots at border guards

    OK, so I don't know if this is considered a main stream source or not. I tend to stay with CNN and then think for myself. I got a link to it on Fox on Facebook. It does appear to have happened. And maybe it has been posted, but I haven't seen it.


    ​A Mexican law enforcement helicopter crossed into the United States early Thursday and fired on two US Border Patrol agents.

    Andy Adame, a spokesperson for US Border Patrol, said in a statement issued soon afterward that the incident had indeed occurred and that the two government agents targeted were not injured.

    The incident occurred early Thursday around 100 yards north of the US/Mexico border, Adame said, around eight miles southwest of the Village of San Miguel on the Tohono O'odham Indian Nation.

    and this administration will accept the apology and nothing will happen to improve border security.

    It is good news that the agents were not hurt. The crossing into the US by Mexican military personnel has got to stop.

    I agree. Too bad they weren't there to grab a few of the ones who jumped the river.

    Wonder if its legal for someone from Mexico to bring military type weapons into the US? Let alone firing at a federal agent (BOR).

    Seems the people in the helicopter should be thrown in jail. But that won't happen. Not to derail the tread, when one of our own mistakenly enteres Mexico, admits he has weapons, sits in a Mexican jail. Makes you wonder who the Adminstration is supporting.

    mexico is only following our example.

    Our government... teaches the whole people by its example. If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.

    And the Mexican military shot at US Border Patrol for what reason? Perhaps we should declare war on Mexico and invade them... again. Would solve the illegal immigration problem. Oh had Polk had the trait of foresight

    You avoid CNN because you prefer to, "think for yourself," yet, you do not hesitate to source from FOX?

    That made me giggle some. I needed a giggle. TGIF.

    The person in jail last I checked isn't a government official, and frankly how our liberal gun laws are and how many weapons end up in Mexico, I can't really blame the Mexican government for throwing the book at the guy. He was a moron for crossing the border, even if it was accident. And for the record Mexico isn't alone in this, Canada has done the same to US citizens.
