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.

...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. Tell us more about yourself....

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!

If I may:

When the Mexican drug cartels took over from the Colombians the first thing they did was use their vast monetary resources and utterly ruthless tactics to compromise almost all civilian, police and military officials all across Northern Mexico (and a good many just on the other side). That money and aggression also allowed them to purchase state-of-the-art communications, vehicles, weaponry and their pick of the best/worst of the Mexican Army's soldiers.

Those former soldiers are called Zetas, often led by men who were trained at our own School of the Americas in high military skills and tactics back in much friendlier times. Now those skills and that superior gear is used against our inadequate border patrol on a regular basis in order to get drugs and humans smuggled into the US interior.

Their scouts learn the Border Patrol's patterns and use commo to coordinate movement - usually so successfully that the BP had no idea they went through until seeing the tracks long after the incursion. Political pressure from the upper leadership has made it plain to the BP on the ground that they don't want to hear about it or see them cited as press report sources.

The US civilians who happen to live in the path of the incursions are either in on it through money or intimidation or powerless while their pleas for help go unanswered by the state and Federal governments that are charged to protect them. Their plight motivated private individuals to form organized groups that patrolled public and private lands (with the owners' permission), reporting the incursions of illegal aliens and the cartels' missions to the Border Patrol. These volunteer groups eventually gave rise to the Minuteman Movement our President likened to vigilantes.

The US House of Representatives passed a very strong package of measures to finally address these ongoing problems. OUR problem is that the Senate, the Administration and the Chamber of Commerce is striving to reduce the enforcement parts of it while adding a guest worker (amnesty) clause before it comes up for final vote next month.

Thank you for your service, Whosays - I very much appreciate your honor and duty to this country. My home.

What is most scary is that the head of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff, is happy to brush this all off as 'mistakes', and misdirection - much as anything immigration related is these days. But here we have documented, photographed evidence of Mexican Army IN THE U.S., and yet nothing is done. I'm actually shocked that Fox issued this proclaimer, because HE ADMITTED IT! :D He who blinks first, you know.

All I can do is try to make sure my friends in Texas, and all along the Southern Border are armed. These weren't 216 (incursions in the last year) accidents. :P
