Mexican Standoff: Border Patrol Agents Shot at by Mexican Military Helicopter that Flew into US

Screenshot 2014-06-27 at 9.45.53 AMEditor’s Note: Their people are abusing our land, coming across our borders illegally. They take the “free” handouts that we give them, and now the Mexican Military has the audacity to fly into America and shoot at our border patrol? That is an act of war. What are you going to do about it, Obama?

According to a local news report from KVOA News 4 out of Tucson, Arizona, at least one Mexican military helicopter crossed into the United States early Thursday morning, shot at Border Patrol agents using lethal force and then flew back to Mexico. Once the helicopter was back on the ground in Mexico, an apology was issued.

“The incident occurred after midnight and before 6 a.m. Helicopter flew into the U.S. and fired on two U.S. Border Patrol agents. The incident occurred west of the San Miguel Gate on the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation,” Border Patrol Tucson Sector Union President Art del Cueto told KVOA News 4 in a statement. “The agents were unharmed. The helicopter went back into Mexico. Mexico then contacted U.S. authorities and apologized for the incident.”

U.S. Border Patrol Spokesperson Andy Adame issued a similar statement and said the incident is under investigation.
