Mexican Army in the U.S.

and somebody is lying about what took place.....................
A U.S. Border Patrol agent was held at gunpoint Sunday night by members of the Mexican military who had crossed the border into Arizona, but the soldiers returned to Mexico without incident when backup agents responded to assist.

State Department spokeswoman Nicole Thompson said Tuesday that the department had no information on the incident, and referred further questions to the Border Patrol. "It is not an incident that we are aware of," she said.

Hope this BP agent doesn't go to jail because he is guilty of encouraging an illegal crossing by the mexican army.

Really wth hell is the purpose of the border agents, nothing against them, I have respect for any man or woman serving this country, but essentially they cant do anything. Day they take the jobs Part one of orientation is getting there hands tied behind there backs. Im thinking we need a wall, manned with some barret 50 cals, any one approches shoot them, that will solve all the problems.

That's all fine and good, but why did they hold an agent at gun point? The story says they left when back up showed up. I can only assume that the agent had on a uniform, was apparently by himself, using some form of gov't issued transportation, and had a radio. My point being that this guy more than likely did not look like the average drug mule running around in the desert.

Maybe the mexican army needs to invest in a GPS system if they were confused as to their location / position.
Just my .02,
Craig
