Border Fences make for Good Neighbors
They also prevent acts of war hostile aggression!
Pointing their rifles, Mexican security forces chased away U.S. authorities investigating the shooting of a 15-year-old Mexican by a U.S. Border Patrol agent on the banks of the Rio Grande, the FBI and witnesses told The Associated Press on Wednesday
The Border Patrol and the FBI were conducting an investigation of the shooting of a Mexican who had crossed the border in the river bed and was throwing rocks at the Border Patrol agents. In self defence, one of the agents shot the boy. When the Mexican Federales showed up, the situation got tense. They have accused the US agents of crossing into Mexico and killing the young man, when in fact…
A U.S. official close to the investigation told the AP that authorities have a video showing that the Border Patrol agent did not cross into Mexico. In fact, the official said, the video shows what appear to be members of Mexican law enforcement crossing onto the U.S. side, picking something up and returning to Mexico.
What did they retrieve from US soil…. the .40 cal shell casing from the fired round!
The Mexican authorities had the audacity to violate our border, destroy a crime scene, steal evidence, agressively force our agents to retreat, and then declare that we were at fault! If we had built a border fence already, this situation might never have happened. Will our State Department demand an apology from Mexico? Somehow I doubt it, especially when we welcome their President with open arms and allow him to rip our Nation a new one in our Congress…
Where we actually have a fence, these things don’t happen! Secure our border – NOW!
