Posted on 08/09/2008 2:53:27 PM PDT by T.L.Sink
Mexican army soldiers invaded U.S. territory and held a member of the U.S. Border Patrol at gunpoint. "Unfortunately, this sort of behavior by Mexican military personnel has been going on for years," a statement from Local 2544 of the National Border Patrol Council said. The Tucson Sector Border Patrol agent was held at gunpoint near Ajo, Ariz. Mexican military personnel crossed over the border and pointed rifles at him. Judicial Watch documented 29 confirmed incidents along the U.S.-Mexican border involving Mexican military and/or law enforcement personnel in 2007. The Border Patrol union said, "A few years ago the Mexican military went a step further and put a 50 caliber rifle through the rear window of a Border Patrol agent's patrol vehicle south of Ajo. Nothing was ever done. Nobody was ever held accountable. Particularly galling is the fact that the Mexican military often pulls these stunts in Humvees donated to them by American taxpayers." Law enforcement authorities have long said Mexican soldiers have been hired to protect drug and migrant smugglers. On the Washington Times forum page, a participant said, "I'm surprised the Bush administration doesn't arrest and convict the border agents involved like they did Ramos and Compean. Don't worry, we won't have borders anyway. We'll be the North American Union and will be nothing more than a Third World oligarchy just like good old Mexico."

good fences make good neighbors.
I wonder if the Mexican’s are being emboldened by the events in Georgia.
They’re being emboldened by events right here.
True enough. But when they see how an US ally gets invaded by Russia to “reclaim” their citizens land, I think it raises their uppity regarding US territory. Of course this is going on since decades already. Damn, just built the fence already!
Its a freakin’ war zone. It has been for years. Drug runners, illegals and their mules move thru freely or else they shoot to kill. Ask a property owner. Don’t ask Buuuush!
Whew! Good thing the man in Office and both men seeking the Oval Office jealously protect our borders! /roll eyes
Ajo is just 40 miles from the Mexico border.
Honestly I think the Russians are probably emboldened by the fact that we allow Mexico to slap us around. They probably notice that we do whatever china wants as well.
Since January, more than 1,300 people have been killed in execution-style hits or gunned down in fire fights, which often rage for hours in broad daylight and turn residential neighbourhoods into war zones. If the trend continues, 2008 will top last year's toll of 2,500 deaths in drug-related killings.You don't hear so much about Americans at the Border. Too bad.
More Americans killed by illegal aliens than Iraq war, study says Think about it. A man or woman killed in Iraq or Iran in the line of duty is a hero. But what is an American killed at home by an illegal alien because the government has failed in its sworn duty to guard the borders. This is a pact between the sovereign and the person has paid taxes and loyalty. The answer is to that question is pretty awful. And it bodes ill for the republic.
But is it true?
When you start digging into the numbers the only ones that can be sourced with the feds are the number of American murdered in 2005: 16692
I have seen federal numbers for illegals held in jail ranging from 19.3% to 27% of the federal prison population.
Here's a sampling of USA cities wanted for murder. What you'll see is that in big USA cities like LA or NYC most of the murderers are Hispanic. Unknown are the % of illegals. In smaller cities the FBI will post the nationalities of the murderers. About 25% of the most wanted are illegals wanted for murder. This number agrees with the percentage of illegals incarcerated in federal prisons. +-25%
Pictures of top 10 most wanted in LA. Up until recent stories about crime in LA posted by the LA Times--the pictures included the nationality of the murderers. They were all foreign nationals and mostly Mexican.

Chicago wanted for Murder
Philadelphia wanted for murder
San Francisco wanted for Murder
New Orleans wanted for Murder
Pictures of suspects wanted for murder in Washington DC
FBI USA 10 most wanted. (two of 10 are Mexican nationals) Around 40% of the FBI's wanted for murder are Mexican Nationals
There are currently no exact numbers on the number of Americans killed by illegals. Part of the reason is that the government deliberately obscures the number. I talked on the phone with the head of statistics for the US Bureau of Prisons. He said his office wasn't allowed to publish the number of illegal alien murderers. Rather they were forced to put legal and non legal residents in the same category. He said further that most of illegals in the federal prisons were in for drug related charges. Most of the illegals in jail for murder were in the state prisons. I talked to ICE. They put out detailed numbers on illegal child molestors. However, they put out nothing on illegal murderers.
Part of the reason for the silence on the matter is that there is evidence to suggest that most Americans--but by no means all -- being killed by illegals are black--as is the suggestion in this LA Times Article. Also this article from the LA Times. And here. This makes intuitive sense. We see stories regularly of drug gang killings in Mexico but we don't see those same stories in the USA. The reason we don't see those stories is not because its not happening. Rather we don't see the stories about illegals killing blacks because that kind of story is terribly politically incorrect. The populations being displaced in downtown sanctuary cities especially are American blacks. That means that their criminal elements would be pushed aside by Mexican gangs as well. That's also the story that the wanted for murder posters in all the major cities seems to suggest.
Why isn't there an outcry in the black community? Beats me.
Nevertheless, the pattern of non reporting is starting to break. Discovery Channel has a series called Gangland that mentions ethnic cleasing of blacks by Mexican gangs

All that said the true number of criminal aliens is far higher than is revealed by criminal aliens in prisons. Most are simply waived through the courts.DHS Secretary Chertoff, has been quoted as warning that two million people in this country illegally have committed serious crimes. If you check the links you'll notice that its McCain who cites Chertoff. See also here and here Here is more info from Judicial Watch.
However the number of illegals on death row is far lower. Sadly, so many small towns and villages across America have sent their warriors off to war half way across the world only to see communities fill up with illegal aliens.
Right - but I think Obama will be the worst. At least McCain has said he wants some border security. That may be bull but we havn’t even heard that little bit from Obama. Where are you Tancred/Hunter now that we need you?
Great pictures - worth more than all the words of the speeches of McCain and Obama and all the other amnestyites.
2. Ramos & Compean shoot an armed Mexican drug runner, who escapes to the safety of Mexico. Months pass & The Mexican gov’t demands the White House make an example of these two interlopers. Bush backs Mexico!
3. Border agent David Sipe hits an illegal trying to resist arrest. Mexico demands The White House to make an example of this interloper. Bush Backs Mexico!
4.A Texas deputy sheriff Gilmer Hernandez who fired shots at a fleeing vehicle after the driver tried to run him down faced 10 years in prison & served 11 months for injuring one of the passengers, a Mexican national being smuggled illegally into the United States. Mexico demands The White House to make an example of this interloper. Bush Backs Mexico!
5. Mexico demands their trucks to have access to our roads & highways. Bush backs Mexico!
I'm beginning to think that Pres. Bush is more an agent of Mexico & then a patriotic American!
We need to take the battle to these Mexicanos.
They need a reminder.
Ajo is just 40 miles from the Mexico border.
Great post and excellent information. By the way, I think the article that points out that we’ve lost more lives to illegal alien crime than we have in Iraq exposes the real indifference to American political, social and economic security that so many liberals falsely profess.
