    Texas Fishermen Shot on Border by Suspected Cartel Gunmen

    16 Mar 2017
    Roma, TX

    ROMA, Texas — Three fishermen riding a boat in Texas waters were shot by suspected cartel gunmen from the Mexican side of the border. One was killed while two others sustained injuries.

    Authorities responded to a call of shots fired in the rural community of Fronton, Starr County Sheriff’s Office Major Carlos Delgado said to Breitbart Texas. Local, state, and federal authorities found two fishermen who had been injured and a third killed by gunfire. The survivors are expected to recover.

    According to preliminary witness statements, the male victims had been fishing when a group of suspected gunmen began firing from the Mexican side for unknown reasons, Delgado said.

    The area where the shooting took place is not far from the spot where a U.S. Border Patrol agent and a Texas State Trooper were shot in November 2016, Breitbart Texas reported at the time. In that case, law enforcement officials were stuck by gunfire from an apparent battle between Mexican law enforcement and cartel members. The trooper was shot in the hip area while the agent was shot in the chest but was saved by his body armor and a loaded ammunition magazine.

    Just days after the shooting of the two lawmen, cartel gunmen murdered another Texas fisherman west of that region in the area known as Falcon Lake in Zapata County. Falcon Lake is an area commonly used by Los Zetas to smuggle large quantities of marijuana and migrants into Texas. The area is immediately south of Zapata and Starr Counties. In that case, two men were fishing when a another boat approached them from the Mexican side, leading to a confrontation and the two victims being shot at. One of the men died from his wounds while the second fisherman has since recovered. The gunmen returned to Mexico after that shooting.

    Falcon Lake is the same area where in 2015 Texas State Troopers on gunboats captured a top Los Zetas commander who was trying to sneak into Texas, Breitbart Texas reported at the time. In that case, authorities arrested Jose Manuel “Z-31″ or “El Borrado” Saldivar Farias, a regional leader for the cartel.

    Falcon Lake was also the scene where Los Zetas gunmen murdered David Hartley in 2010 while he and his wife were jet-skiing, Breitbart Texas previously reported. Hartley and wife Tiffany had been riding in the lake until an apparent failed kidnapping led to David being struck by gunfire, while Tiffany managed to escape.

    And the deaths from this border war just keep mounting while Congress sits and Sanctuary Cities resist. Spare me another word from these traitors who pretend to care about people. They care only about the money lining their pockets from the cartels who control our border and the entire illegal immigration travesty.

    It must stop. If it takes the National Guard or military, our nation and Americans must be protected.

    We are beyond a state of emergency, we are states of emergency, devastated by millions of illegal aliens destroying our country. We have a worthless Congress, oblivious, uncaring to what is happening to the American people. Many don't seem to care, just keep the monies, the favors, the votes coming. They seem to often operate as foreign agents not representatives of the American people. Their feel good pandering and social justice talk and actions continue the transformation of the United States by foreign citizens who should not be here or permitted entry.

    We are infecting America with hate and haters from outside our borders.

    I believe this is the same lake that the husband and wife were on Jet Ski and the husband was shot to death, they chased the wife and tried to shoot her too. The husband's body was never found.

    This is an act of war. This is an invasion and they are killing too many American citizens. Mexico needs to be cut off as much as possible in foreign aid. Start turning each and every person right back around and get these people out of here.

    They have been ALLOWED to use and abuse our country for far too long and it is out of control They are more embolden, violent and aggressive towards our citizens and our law enforcement.

    We need to focus on trading with other countries and put a squeeze on Mexico to clean up it's act once and for all.
