    Americans witness mex military push man off bridge

    'We had a clear view'
    New witnesses also saw man pushed off Progreso bridge

    More witnesses have come forward saying they saw armed men in fatigues push a blindfolded man off the Progreso International Bridge two weeks ago.

    As originally reported last Sunday, five Winter Texans said that on Feb. 13, they saw a group of armed men in military fatigues escort a blindfolded man from the Mexican side of the bridge to the U.S. side and place him on the guardrail before pushing him off. Among the witnesses was a South Dakota family that took two photographs of the incident and gave them to the Valley Morning Star.
    Now three more people say they saw the same incident.
    Jim and Virginia Martin are former Winter Texans who have lived permanently in Port Isabel for six years. The couple, who are Washington, D.C., natives and retired Federal Aviation Administration employees, said they visit Nuevo Progreso, Mexico, every three or four weeks.
    On Feb. 13 they were in their vehicle returning to Texas when they said they noticed a group of men in fatigues walking on the opposite side of the bridge with a blindfolded man.
    Traffic returning to Texas, they said, was slow-moving. There was little to no traffic on the southbound lanes headed toward Mexico, they said.

    It is time for this in humane treatment to stop. I am so sick of being called racist and being made to feel that I am terrible person for wanting illegals to go home, especially by our government and the Bush Administration, I could scream. The Mexican Government is no better to me then the terrorists in the middle east. They are terrorists plain and simple. What is the difference if they are in Mexico or are in the Middle East when the crimes are the same. Crimes against humanity. Crimes against a nation. Why on earth does our government not take any pride on what is happening to our borders and our nation. These little men in the congress and the senate are nothing but little men. The women in the Senate and Congress are humanity haters. Our country is asking way to much and giving us the citzens very little. We are all hard workers, compassionate human beings. All we ask for is safety and our freedom.

    The men in the photographs, he said, appeared to be about 10 feet across the border on the U.S. side of the bridge.
    Isn't activity on the bridge under video and camera surveillance ?

    If this did happen the way described, this was an armed intrusion into the United States by Mexican military personnel where an apparent murder took place.

    We are called racist for not wanting them here, but here in her own words:

    the international line, if like in laredo, is in the middle of the bridge.
