A convoy of three Mexican military trucks loaded down with soldiers and weapons may have violated territorial sovereignty near Laredo, TX on Thursday, driving through a border checkpoint and crossing into the United States.

KGNS-TV reports the crossing happened at a section known as Bridge Number Two:

Mexican leaders say the soldiers, who had just been deployed to Nuevo Laredo, didn’t know the area, got lost and then made their way through Bridge Two.

Article said it’s not clear if they actually made it “through”. Uhhh... they either did or they didn’t? Where’s the “reporting”? /s

How could those Mexican soldiers be expected to know they were crossing the largest river in the southwest?

Just another reason to have a border that is actually controlled.

My new theory on how to fix things is to get (near) absolute control of the border and then to put and keep drug users on the South side where all the drugs are.

Our so-called Federal government, at its best. Anything for votes. Ain’t it amazing how Mexico controls American “foreign policy”.

The blaze has produced stories short on facts before. If you read the whole story they say they don’t know if the troops ever crossed the boarder. I calling the headline a lie to gain traffic to their site.

I guarantee the mexican military wouldn’t get lost in the states if there were American military within sight of the borders.

Another story for you. http://www.pro8news.com/news/local/Mexican-troops-cross-into-the-United-States--124469714.html

"A convoy of three military trucks loaded with Mexican soldiers crosses the border at Bridge Number Two clearly violating international law.

Mexican leaders say the soldiers, who had just been deployed to Nuevo Laredo, didn't know the area, got lost and then made their way through Bridge Two."

On more than one occassion, Armed U.S. Army patrols in West Germany accidentally crossed into Czechoslovakia. In one incident, they sat down in a Gasthaus and ordered dinner. The somewhat surprised locals called the cops who managed to resolve the situation without creating a diplomatic fuss. On one occassion, a lost convoy of a Pershing Missile battery actually tried to cross a border checkpoint into Czechoslovakia after getting lost on their way to Camp Grafenwehr.

I just hope they went back to Mexico once they realized their “mistake”.

I am a Border Patrol agent and I can tell you that the American people have no idea how often the Mexican military crosses.

We get Mexican military on trail cams all the time, or at least they are people dressed as Mexican military with AK-47s.

Years ago a USAF convoy carrying a Minuteman III re-entry vehicle got lost and ended up in Canada.

Not pleasant when we annexed a small part of their territory as a National Defense Area when the convoy was stopped.

It was like that this morning. Only a few cars were headed to the US. I didn’t check the other bridges.
