Skip to comments.Fox News: Armed Mexicans Forced National Guard To Retreat

Just caught a piece of this. There was a confrontation on the Mexican-Arizona border between the National Guard and "Mexicans dressed in combat/tactical gear and carrying rifles." Apparently the Guard had to retreat because it is not allowed to fire even when threatened on US soil.
Perhaps other Freepers have more details. If this is true, WTF are we doing about border security?
I heard about this on Rush. Why are they even there if they cannot do a job of protecting the borders???
Napolitano sent them there did she not? Is she up for re-election? This may be just some political posturing to save her bum...
This news is weeks old.
You mean it happened again? Or is Fox just now getting around to this story?
Lock and Load!!!
What happens if these are "fake" illegal Mexicans who are really not and they are middle eastern men wanting to do harm to these border agents and/or our country?
It is as if our govt. is playing russian roulette with our agents.
I think FOX said the incident was the wee hours of Jan 3rd...
Only remarkable because the MSM ignored it completely...
Looks like reporting on the investigation of the border incursion earlier this month.
It's true, it happened 3 weeks ago in the Tucson Sector. The NG did exactly what their ROE spells out. They spotted 6 armed men moving on their position 100 yards from the border and notified BorderPatrol. When the armed group came within 75 yards they retreated to an alternate position and continued to monitor the groups movements. The group crossed back into Mexico before the Border Patrol arrived.
The NG did nothing wrong, it's the ROE they have been given that is the problem. These guys are out there with their butts hanging in the wind, and it's crap! Some of these OP's are manned by soldiers who have nothing but a radio and Night Vision Goggles. That is unacceptable.
Remember, Senor Bush is on the side of the illegal invaders, not on the "vigilantes"' side. The national guard should be allowed to do its job.
So, if 10,000 Mexicans dressed in military gear invaded the US and set up fortified camps, poured in artilery, missiles, tanks, etc., we would just let them be? Not fire on them?
This is truly something from the Twilight Zone. Sounds like a plan by our government to surrender to Mexico.
mmmmmmmm hard question but My guess would be...........probably.
I am glad Perry decided to start getting serious about illegals here in Texas. BUT our border is still wide open.
There is a legislator in Austin that is proposing amending the Constitution, no more anchorbaby citizenship born to illegals. He said it's been misinterpeted as to its original intent. Maybe that would be a deterrent to them coming in to have the little freeloader.
I never understood that concept. If you are born here you are a citizen. How, if the parents are here illegally, does that make you a legal citizen? Seems they all are here illegally. Just musing after reading your post.
We've already surrendered to Iran.
