Criminals from across the Mexican border use lethal force against the American Border Patrol and they don’t shoot back. The Border Patrol tracks drug cartel smugglers into America and are using bean bag guns against Ak-47’s. But when they come across an armed American, shots fly.
From Stars and Stripes:
A Border Patrol agent pursuing a group of immigrants in a wooded area near the Texas-Mexico border on Friday fired several shots at an armed man who later identified himself as a militia member.
Border Patrol spokesman Omar Zamora said agents had been chasing a group of immigrants east of Brownsville Friday afternoon when an agent saw a man holding a gun near the Rio Grande. The agent fired four shots, but did not hit the man. The man then dropped his gun and identified himself as a member of a militia. Zamora said no other details were immediately available.
Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio, whose agency is involved in the investigation, said the incident occurred on private property and it appeared the man had permission to be there. He was not arrested, Lucio said.
The man, whose name has not been released, was wearing camouflage and carrying a long arm that was either a rifle or shotgun, Lucio said. The agent had lost the group of immigrants when he turned around and saw the man holding the weapon.
But Lucio said, “We really don’t need the militia here.” He recognized they have the right to carry weapons, but noted that with the Border Patrol, Texas Department of Public Safety and local law enforcement, there are enough agencies working to secure the border. Gov. Rick Perry also called as many as 1,000 National Guard members to the border.
Secure the border?
Who the hell is doing that?
It isn’t the Border Patrol. They are too busy babysitting illegal aliens. The National Guard or Texas Department of Public Safety or the local law enforcement?
Sheriff Lucio is either a liar or a moron. None of those agencies have authorization to enforce immigration laws.
