Washington, D.C. U.S. Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) responded to reports that a Border Patrol agent was held at gunpoint by members of the Mexican military in Arizona by reaffirming the necessity for border fencing and other infrastructure. According to a State Department Spokesman, the encounter stemmed from a momentary misunderstanding as to the exact location of the U.S.-Mexican border.
"I disagree with the State Departments characterization of this incident," said Congressman Hunter. "The fact that members of the Mexican military are routinely operating in such close proximity to the border, with no identifiable purpose, raises serious questions about their activities. Rather than dismissing this incident as a mere misunderstanding, the Departments of State and Homeland Security should try to make sense of this and the more than 40 incursions that have occurred over this fiscal year alone.
"If the Mexican military has a problem identifying the exact location of the border, then we should make it clear to them. Building fence and implementing other infrastructure in areas where incursions appear to be more frequent will prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future. This isnt the first time the Mexican military has crossed into the United States and, until our border is clearly defined and aggressively enforced, it certainly wont be the last."
NOTE: A Border Patrol agent was recently held at gunpoint by members of the Mexican military who crossed the border into Arizona. According to reports, the soldiers returned to Mexico when other agents responded to assist.
Duncan has endorsed John McCain.
You libel based on what?
That’s why I ask such questions in my post.
border infrastructure = WALL
To hunter it means a wall. Actaully, a double fence with a border patrol between. TO Mccain, Rudy, Chertoff, etc it means a pink ribbon.
“You libel based on what?”
How is it libel to call a two-faced, slick-haired, Republo-liberal a “two-faced, slick-haired, Republo-liberal”.
“WASHINGTON — Gov. Mitt Romney expressed support yesterday for an immigration program that places large numbers of illegal residents on the path toward citizenship”
The truth kinda stings... don’t it.
Thank you Duncan Hunter!
And thank you pissant, for posting this.
I tried, but the only link I had was to American Free Press.
BTW, what’s the problem with AFP anyway?
Thank you for the link.
