Mexican Military Helicopter Crosses Border And Fires On Border Patrol Agents

Mexico Pot CultivationScary stuff. Probably happens (on both sides) more often than we know. It was a “drug interdiction” mission.

TUCSON – News 4 Tucson has learned a Mexican military helicopter travelled across the border and fired on U.S. Border Patrol agents.

It happened in the early morning hours Thursday, west of the San Miguel Gate on the Tohono O’Odham Nation. The chopper fired on the agents but missed them. The chopper then flew back into Mexico. We’re told Mexican authorities contacted the U.S. and apologized for the incident.

We’ve received two statements regarding the incident:

Art del Cueto, Border Patrol Tucson Sector union president:

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. The agents were unharmed. The helicopter went back into Mexico. Mexico then contacted U.S. authorities and apologized for the incident.

Andy Adame, U.S. Border Patrol Spokesperson:

Early this morning, a Mexican law enforcement helicopter crossed approximately 100 yards north into Arizona nearly 8 miles southwest of the Village of San Miguel on the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation while on a drug interdiction operation near the border. Two shots were fired from the helicopter but no injuries or damage to US property were reported. The incident is currently under investigation.

    only 100 yards before they realized their overreach and left
    a fine example for Uncle Homeland
    who never acknowledges an overreach
    and continues to militarily occupy over 50 foreign kunteries

    This sort of thing has been happening along the border for over a century. Its usually a diversionary tactic. When you see mexican govt’ forces do it, it just means the smugglers paid them, not that the govt troops were acting on the orders of the govt.
    What cracks me up is all the “patriots” screaming that we should go over and punish them. They obviously need to brush up on their history-spend a little google time looking up Pershing. I believe the technology gap was bigger back then.
