Mexico issues border ban
MySA.com ^ | 01/25/2006 | Mariano Castillo

Posted on 01/25/2006 7:28:47 AM PST by Boston Blackie

A day after as many as 20 armed men in military fatigues crossed the Rio Grande into Texas before being chased back by U.S. authorities, the Mexican government ordered its troops not to come within 2 kilometers of the border.

While the Mexican Foreign Affairs Ministry and Defense Ministry denied their military had a role in providing protection for Monday's marijuana smuggling operation into Hudspeth County, the government said its military wouldn't be permitted in the border zone without authorization.

"If it rattles like a snake and looks like a snake, it's probably a damn snake," Hudspeth County Sheriff Arvin West said. "There's no doubt it's Mexican military."

Since Mexico is convinced that these folks are not their military, they probably won't complain much if we splatter these criminals across the desert and turn their heavy military equipment into a burning slag heap with a couple strafing runs by an A-10 Thunderbolt.

But these are just good hearted people just trying to improve their lives and put food on the tables for their families so I imagine that our President is too compassionate to give the orders.

Yeah, I heard that too on Fox & Friends this morning. The Mexican govt has lots of splainin' to do.

And OUR government better finally get busy taking this stuff seriously for a damn change. Bush and company better realize that we're sick and tired of being sick and tired of this cr@p!

I think they meant that units of the Mexican Army cannot come within 2 miles of the Canadian border.

"This incident is a troubling reminder that criminal organizations do indeed smuggle drugs across our border and we need to continue to focus our law enforcement efforts on stopping it," Perry spokeswoman Rachael Novier said

And here's a troubling reminder that Gov. Rick Perry said that building a fence along the border "is a silly idea."

The Mexican government doesn't have to explain anything thanks to ALL our politicians. Our elected officials care much more for people from foreign countries than they do their own citizens. We are nothing but a means to an end....their reelections.

A very corrupt country.

There is a reason that these countries are impoverished and have stayed that way for the last 200 years.

Sorry to jump in on you. Sounds like a great selling point for freedom to bear arms. I am completely out of loop forward deployed and the most I seen of this topic is a two liner at the bottom of the TV. Well until I hit this site. Is this a regular occurance? Ashcroft should jump all over it being it is a homeland security issue. If I am out doing my duty for my country weather I believe it to be right or wrong as I swore to. Does he not have the same responsibility as his office. Bottom line protect America from foreign invasion (despite the size of the army) He has talked the talk lets see if can even walk it.

Bears repeating. There is no logical excuse for Mexico be in such poor condition other than their government. Sad for the people.

Last time that happen, it resulted in the Battle of Vera Cruz, and the loss (by Mexico) of much of what today is the western United States. I think Baja offers wonderful opportunities for development, once we clear out the (soon-to-be) illegal Mexicans.

I say just shoot the bastards. If they are in fact "Drug Smugglers", than they deserve to be shot. And if they're in fact Mexican Military than the Mexican Government has a lot of "Esplaneing to do Lucy".

Unless we build twin 15 foot steel fences with sensors the open border politicians will stop enforcing the border at the next opportunity. Then we need to have the Guard back up the fence.

Saturate the border with quick response teams that have the capacity to totally destroy. Issue each team with body bags. Then after the incursion is over, send the bags back to Mexico with a gift tag. This sh@@ has got to stop and only one way will Mexico understand - - - don't F with us.

At least Mexico realized it was an error to let the troops wander into our territory. Frankly, I am very surprised they considered it wrong since they're handing out maps on how to get here!

BTW, if anyone can get a copy of these maps, I'd love to have some. Anytime I get a request for RNC money, it'd be great to have one to enclose. My just writing that I won't be supporting ANY politician/party that doesn't support securing the border and removing the illegals hasn't made a dent.

The Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, of Ontario, Calif., touched off controversy last week by citing what it said were U.S. Homeland Security Department figures showing Border Patrol agents reported spotting what appeared to be Mexican soldiers on U.S. soil 216 times since 1996.

Homeland security officials said the claims were overblown.

And they know this how? This is the federal response to border incursions?

...forward deployed Welcome to FreeRepublic, on your first day! Yes, this is a major and ongoing problem. Unfortunately, it seems to be largely ignored by our powers that be, which is why it has blown up out of control and the Mexican government thinks it can do as it will.

Yes and what makes me angry is the problems have been there all along and President Bush chose to ignore them and now it is a problem only because the media is choosing to report this incident.

I supported President Bush, voted for him twice and though I am still so greatful that we didn't have a Gore or Kerry presidency- I am very angry with this administration over the border issues.

Yes, it IS a contest, since we have a president who has said "these good folks just come here to work" and that "family values do not stop at the Rio Grande."

As long as Bush is president, it is a contest.

Welcome aboard, and thanks you for your service to America!

Unfortunately, yes...this IS a regular occurrence...use this link HERE to bring yourself up to speed as to just how badly America has been sold out!

When Homeland Security head Jerkoff Chertoff downplays Armed Incursion/Invasion of America by Mexico's Military in direct operational support for Drug Smugglers and/or Illegal Infiltrator smuggling, and a week later we have this incident...and STILL La Hacienda Blanco will NOT defend America's Borders...

We are in serious Doo-Doo here!

The Border Patrol has had plenty of proof all along, they have documented reports, photos, video,testimony from other agencies and have even captured Mexican Military men; but they are told to return their weapons and let them go back to Mexico. The higher ups have chosen to ignore the proof,ignore the problem, and keep their mouths shut.

Most Americans choose to not believe this type of thing happens repeatedly so the BP is frustrated to say the least. They are not trained as soldiers, not armed to go up against military and have no backup.

The reason this is finally hitting the news is the BP has had it with this volatile situation and no backup; and they are speaking out to the media even at the peril of their career.
