    Rogue Mexican Army troops crossing the line

    N4T Investigators: Rogue Mexican Army troops crossing the line


    Excellent Video report at link.

    SASABE, SONORA - Has a unit of Mexican Army soldiers who patrol right on the Arizona border gone rogue?

    This small group has attacked U.S. citizens, and even challenged U.S. federal agents within the U.S. A News 4 Tucson investigation into the dangerous world of rogue soldiers in mexico's military.

    In January, soldiers from this lonely outpost of the Mexican Army drew their guns on U.S. Border Patrol agents just 50 yards into the United States. Then in March, they opened fire on Javier Jose Rodriguez, a young Tucson man visiting family in Sásabe when he was driving around the town early on a Saturday morning after drinking beers with friends. Rodriguez was shot in the arm and in the side, he spent three weeks at University of Arizona Medical Center.

    The United States' reaction has been tepid, angering people who live and patrol along the Arizona border.

    U.S. Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) revealed details of the January encounter between soldiers from this base and the Border Patrol. In a letter to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Coburn said a lone agent encountered two Mexican soldiers 50 yards inside the U.S. The agent and the soldiers drew their weapons; the soldiers carried G-3 rifles.

    "From what I understand, this has happened hundreds of times before," says Sylvia Longmire, a border security analyst whose recent book, Border Insecurity, details the challenges and failings of some Homeland Security operations along the Arizona-Sonora border. The soldiers told the agent they'd gotten lost while pursuing a drug smuggler.

    "However, I believe there was some confusion as to whether that's what the Mexican Army was doing because there was no evidence found by the Border Patrol of any drug smugglers in the area," Longmire said.

    Reports obtained under the federal Freedom of Information Act show that members of Mexico's Army have crossed into the U.S. at least 300 times over the past 18 years.

    On a Tuesday morning, KVOA's Lupita Murillo spoke with the commander of the base. He said the last unit rotated out and that an entirely new unit took its place.

    But reports show that across the entire border, soldiers have driven into Texas, landed helicopters in Texas' Rio Grande Valley and encountered Border Patrol agents within the United States.

    The injured Rodriguez says he wants justice. His medical bills are now over $43,000. He says he intends to pay those off when he goes back to work. He also thinks it's wrong that these soldiers crossed into arizona and threatened american federal agents.

    "I mean, it's very nerve-wracking," said Art del Cueto, president of the Border Patrol's union in the Tucson Sector, Local 2544. "A lot of these encounters happen in the middle of the night where, you know, the lighting is low and you don't know who you're encountering. You're sitting there and seeing a group of guys coming up to you and they're all carrying long-arms, you don't know what you're encountering."

    Sources in the U.S. State Department say they believe Mexico's Attorney General is looking into that March attack. But nobody is investigating why these soldiers cross into Arizona.

    Arivaca resident, Ronald Ayers said in 2006, a Mexican Army helicopter in the area crossed the border and landed in the U.S. about 300 yards across the border.

    "A helicopter flew very low. Flew around behind the barn, landed and then several men got out all clad in black with masks over their face and body armor, carrying what looked to be full automatic weapons," Ayers recalls. What frustrates him, even now, is that he never heard another word about the incident after he was interviewed by both the FBI and Customs and Border Protection.

    Sen. Koburn ordered the Homeland Security Department to produce answers into the Mexican Army incursion by early February. A senior senate aide tells KVOA News 4, as of this week, the agency hasn't responded to the senator's demand.

    Mexican Soldiers Invade US… Weapons Drawn on Border Agents…Obama Ignores

    Posted on Wednesday, April 9th, 2014 at 10:30 AM.

    By Steven Ahle

    We are just finding out that two Mexican soldiers in camouflage carrying assault rifles held border agents in a tense standoff on US soil. The Obama administration did not even lodge a protest with the Mexican government. Then we find out that this wasn’t the first incursion of the Mexicans on our soil. It seems there have been a couple of dozen incursions into Southern Arizona since 2010.
    The January 26th standoff was reported as a foreign military incursion was withheld from people of the United States until the Los Angeles Times broke the story. The incursion lasted for 35 minutes and could have lasted longer, had not the Border Control agents not drawn their guns and radioed for help.
    The incursion was confirmed in a letter from US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske. The soldiers misidentified themselves and claimed they were after drug smugglers.
    Although the soldiers claimed to be looking for drug smugglers, it is more likely that they were offering protection for at least one of the cartels. Arizona is a favorite route for the cartels. The porous borders we have under Barack Obama have facilitated drug and human smuggling over the past five years.
    On Tuesday, the Mexican Embassy claimed the two men were not soldiers but drug smugglers dressed in military uniforms, but when the Times presented them with the confirmation of the incident, the embassy grudgingly admitted the men were indeed soldiers.
    Ariel Moutsatsos, minister for press and public affairs at the Mexican Embassy tried to smooth things over with this explanation:
    “Those individuals were part of a counter-narcotics operation, which had taken place a few minutes prior on the Mexican side of the border.The two members of the Mexican army did not see any sign notifying them that they were crossing the border.” (Right and seeing US Border Patrol members didn’t give them a clue)
    Eduardo Sanchez, spokesman for Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto’s security cabinet, has now confirmed the incursion with a new story. He claims the soldiers spotted two men with knapsacks believed to be filled with drugs.
    They chased them, did not capture the men but did manage to grab the knapsacks. (If you like your health insurance, you can keep it) He went on to say that without a border fence or even a sign, his men did not know they were on American soil. If all that were true, it still does not explain why they pulled their guns on uniformed Border Control agents.
    This would never happen if we had a president and not a resident.

    Mexican Army Invades US, Shoots Tucson Man

    Posted by Joe For America on May 6, 2014 in Foreign Affairs, Immigration, Military

    I’ve been advocating that America brings our troops back from the Middle East and stations them along the US-Mexico border to stop the massive influx of illegal aliens. From this latest information, we need our troops along the border to keep the Mexican army from continually crossing into the United States.



    If you don’t believe the reports, just ask Tucson resident Javier Jose Rodriguez. In March of this year, he was visiting family in Sasabe, Arizona, about 30 miles west northwest of Nogales, along the Mexican border. Rodriguez had been drinking some beers early Saturday morning and was driving around the town when members of the Mexican army opened fire on him. He was shot in the arm and side, resulting in a three week stay in the University of Arizona Medical Center in Tucson.
    So far, Rodriguez’s medical bills total over $43,000. He says that as soon as he gets back to work he intends to pay them off. I think that the Mexican army should be forced to pay for all of his medical bills along with lost wages, pain and suffering. They should also face charges here in the US for their illegal actions.
    In yet another incident from earlier this year, members of the Mexican army crossed into the US and drew their rifles on US Border Patrol agents. Sylvia Longmire, a border security analyst recently published a book titled Border Insecurity reported that members of the Mexican army claimed they were following drug traffickers and got lost, adding:
    “However, I believe there was some confusion as to whether that’s what the Mexican Army was doing because there was no evidence found by the Border Patrol of any drug smugglers in the area.”
    “From what I understand, this has happened hundreds of times before.”
    In 2006, a Mexican army helicopter landed about 300 yards inside the US. There was no prior notice or request from them to enter the US to accomplish whatever their mission was. Ronal Ayers, a resident of Arivaca, Arizona described the incident with the helicopter:
    “A helicopter flew very low. Flew around behind the barn, landed and then several men got out all clad in black with masks over their face and body armor, carrying what looked to be full automatic weapons.”
    Ayers said that after the incident he was interviewed by the FBI and Customs-Border Protection. After his interviews, he never heard another word about his brush with the Mexican army and their helicopter.
    Information obtained through the Freedom of Information Act reveals that Mexican army troops have crossed into the US over 300 times in the past 18 years. It’s not just happening in Arizona, but in all of the border states.
