EL PASO, Texas -- Border Patrol officials are investigating an incursion by Mexican federal police into the United State on Thursday morning.
U.S. Border Patrol spokesman Doug Mosier said armed officers with Mexico's Secretaria de Seguridad Publica federal police were in the incursion, which took place in El Paso, near the Border Patrol's Ysleta station.
The Mexican government, Border Patrol and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department are investigating the incident. U.S. authorities responded to the incident.
An ABC-7 viewer contacted the station early Thursday, saying her son, husband and friends were hunting on the Rio Grande levy on the U.S. side when men on the Mexico side fired shots, narrowly missing them. She said more men on the Mexico side drove up with automatic weapons and into to U.S. side. She said the armed men fired weapons and stole hunters' chairs and drove back into Mexico.
Mosier said Border Patrol agents and Texas Parks and Wildlife officers were sent to the area immediately.
"Upon approach, our agents observed those subjects (Mexican officers) who committed the incursion return back to Mexico," Mosier said.
Mosier said that at no point of the initial investigation were there any allegations of shots being fired at subjects on the U.S. side of the border, nor is there any information to suggest that any personal items were stolen from the U.S. side of the international boundary.
I've had it with Messsicans. I would have fired back had I been one of those Texans and shot those greasy sum-bitches. What ever happened to the balls of Texans? You guys should have an army of southern boys down there on the border combatting this shit. I don't even live anywhere near Texas and the damn invasion of low riding el caminos with air spoilers on the top of the tailgate door i sat an all time high.
We are currently under invasion by these sum-bitches and this needs to end. If Americans are being targetted and placed under automatic weapons fire, they have every right to return fire and defend themselves. It's about time you Texans, Arizonans, and New Mexico-uns start defending the National borders and start putting some of these fucking El Guapos 6 feet under.
