LA ROSITA - The search has been called off for Mexican gunmen who fled into the U.S. following a shootout with the Mexican military.

It happened near La Rosita in Starr County around 4:00 p.m. Thursday.

The Starr County Sheriff's Department, Texas Department of Public Safety, U.S. Border Patrol, and the Texas Rangers all responded to a cornfield six miles west of Rio Grande City following a violent clash between suspected drug cartel members and the Mexican army.

At least five armed men crossed into the U.S. during the shootout, but they quickly returned to Mexico to avoid capture.

I suggest that everyone read the following report about Texas Border Security:

It was written by two military experts who each have extensive experience. The report seems long, but one can get the meat of it by reading pages 9-15.

Note the recommendations.
