CAUGHT IN THE ACT (Incursions by Mexican nationals into the USA)

Some more of Dubya's 'good hearted folks' have made another incursion across the Rio Grande again, complete with their high powered automatic weapons.

Let a Syrian military force cross the Iraq border and our military would be all over it like a tumblebug on a piece of dung. Don't Americans rate the same level of protection from armed invaders Iraqis do?

KFOX News in El Paso has reported, "For the second time in two weeks, American law enforcement officers say men carrying high powered automatic weapons and who appeared to be Mexican soldiers violated the international boundary and crossed into the United States in Hudspeth County, East of El Paso.

In the past the Mexican Consulate in El Paso had stated that their Government policy is that no armed Mexican soldiers are allowed closer than three miles to the U.S. border.

"The latest incident happened just before sunset on Tuesday night, as a KFOX crew was on the scene. As a Hudspeth County sheriff's deputy was describing what happened during a reported incursion last week - suddenly one 'soldier' emerged from the brush on the Mexican side of the border and darted back under cover. Moments later though, two other men who appeared to be soldiers marched across a clearing, in plan view. Shortly after that, the Deputy spotted soldiers who were well hidden and out of camera range crossing into the United States - attempting to flank the Deputy and the news crew.

"According to the Deputy 'They are doing the classic thing, flanking around each side of us and actually coming up into the U.S. and trying to figure out what we are doing, they are looking at us very heavily.'

"Reporter Ben Swann replied, 'So I guess it's time to go.' The Deputy responded 'Yeah, it would definitely be time to get out of here.'

"...After this latest incident on Tuesday night, the U.S. Border Patrol reports that they were contacted by Mexican authorities who admitted the men were Mexican soldiers. Border Patrol Assistant Chief Robert Boatright told KFOX 'Mexican officials got in touch with our Mexican liaison unit to advise us that they had requested the assistance of the Mexican military and that they were down in Hudspeth County.' But he tells us this contact only occurred after the Mexican soldiers had been spotted by the Sheriff's Deputy."

Will Chertoff claim this is another accident as well? See the pictures for yourself. Excuse my skepticism, but it sounds like someone in the Border Patrol was ordered by the powers that be to provide a cover story for what was essentially an act of war on the part of Mexico. In a border incident in the same spot last week, a Humvee and heavily armed men who appeared to be soldiers, reportedly came to the rescue of drug smugglers who were being chased back across the border into Mexico; the incursion occurred about 50 miles east of El Paso. On Wednesday afternoon, the Mexican Consulate released a statement saying the heavily armed men were not Mexican Soldiers, but were State Police, investigating last week's smuggling incident. Consulate officials say the men will be in the area for the next several days. So the Border Patrol supposedly invited Mexican soldiers onto Texas soil for several days, without seeking permission from Gov. Rick Perry, and neglected to inform local law enforcement officers -- a mere eight days after the last armed incursion, knowing there was a chance some local lawman might shoot first and ask questions later? I don't THINK so!

The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (“MCDC”) released the video footage of an incursion by a unit of the Mexican army across the U.S. border in Arizona on January 20. The footage, filmed in 2004, was sent to then Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge. His office did not respond. The video has remained in the Minuteman video archive and is being released in response to recent news reports that over 200 cross-border incursions by the Mexican army have been documented since 1996. Chris Simcox and a group of Civil Defense Corps volunteers encountered a squad of approximately eight armed Mexican soldiers about 500 yards inside American territory.

Tony Dolz reported for American Chronicle, "At 2:15 PM on Monday, January 23, a large number of heavily armed Mexican Army soldiers had a standoff with nearly 30 U.S. law enforcement officials near Neely's Crossing, on U.S. soil, 50 miles east of El Paso. According to the Hudspeth County Sheriff's Department and the FBI, Mexican military Humvees were towing what appeared to be thousands of pounds of marijuana across the border into the United States. Mexican soldiers armed with several mounted machine guns on the ground held their position more than 200 yards inside of United States territory. Sheriff Deputies captured a Cadillac Escalade reportedly stolen from El Paso laden with 1,477 pounds of marijuana; as well as one of the Humvees which the soldiers had set on fire. Inland Valley Daily Bulleting reporters Sara Carter and Kenneth Todd Ruiz, in their stunning coverage of this story, quote Chief Deputy Sheriff Mike Doyal as saying that these incidents are common at Neely's Crossing.

"In a Homeland Security document uncovered by the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin on January 15 th, it states that 216 Mexican army incursions have occurred in the last 10 years. This is loudly contested by T. J. Bonner, president of the National Border Patrol Council, the Border Patrol agent's national union, who says that these incursion are far more common and that the Border Patrol agents reports to headquarters in Washington are routinely ignored as is the risks that this armed incursions represent to the agents and area residents. The frequency of the violations has been corroborated repeatedly by the likes of Texas State Representative, John Culberson who earlier this month toured the Laredo area with no less than Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. Rep. Culberson was told by sheriffs and Border Patrol agents that standoffs with “uniformed, machine gun-toting military people”, occur regularly. The secret document points to El Centro, California as the place where the greatest number of dangerous incursions has taken place out of our entire 2000 mile border with Mexico.

"In a Daily Bulleting series entitled, Beyond Borders, the newspaper related an incident from 2000 when 16 Mexican soldiers were arrested by Border Patrol agents in a small town west of El Paso, New Mexico after the soldiers fired on the agents. Inexplicably, U. S. State Department officials forced the border agents to release the soldiers and return them to Mexico with their weapons! What the American people do not know about these broken border threats the better; that seems to be what our government thinks is best for us."

Regarding the incident on Jan. 20, Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez said the uniformed men who used a military-style Humvee to help the drug smugglers being chased by Texas Department of Public Safety troopers and Hudspeth County sheriff's deputies may have been U.S. soldiers or criminals. But he offered no evidence to back his suggestion.

Jerry Seper of the Washington Times reported, "The U.S. Border Patrol has warned agents in Arizona of incursions into the United States by Mexican soldiers 'trained to escape, evade and counterambush' if detected -- a scenario Mexico denied yesterday. "The warning to Border Patrol agents in Tucson, Ariz., comes after increased sightings of what authorities described as heavily armed Mexican military units on the U.S. side of the border. The warning asks the agents to report the size, activity, location, time and equipment of any units observed. "It also cautions agents to keep 'a low profile,' to use 'cover and concealment' in approaching the Mexican units, to employ 'shadows and camouflage' to conceal themselves and to 'stay as quiet as possible.'

Rafael Laveaga, spokesman for the Mexican Embassy in Washington, has denied Mexican military personnel are crossing into the United States, "I strongly deny any incursions by the Mexican military as inaccurate allegations," Laveaga said. "The Mexican military is a well-respected institution with strict rules on how to control Northern Mexico. It maintains a protocol of not going within a mile of the border, and those who would trespass would be severely punished." He said some drug smugglers headed "both north and south" wear uniforms and drive military-type vehicles, and might have "confused" U.S. authorities. "Give me a break," said T.J. Bonner, a 27-year Border Patrol veteran who heads the National Border Patrol Council. "Intrusions by the Mexican military to protect drug loads happen all the time and represent a significant threat to the agents. Why else would they be in the area, firing at federal agents in the United States? There is no other explanation," said Bonner. As to the reports that Mexican military units had crossed mistakenly into the United States, Bonner said, "Every country's military has a global positioning system nowadays, including the Mexicans. If the border is so poorly marked, why don't the thousands of Border Patrol agents working 24/7 along it ever seem to get lost, and none of us have been issued a GPS," he said.

In a recent interview, DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff downplayed the increasing number of incursions by the mexican military stating, "First, I saw these stories in the last 24 hours, I think the stories are overblown. The issue of incursions or military police, Mexican Military Police crossing the border...this has been tracked for 10 years. I asked the Chief of the Border Patrol about it. The number has not increased. In fact, I think it's decreased a little bit and you have to unpack it. There are a lot of different things. I think we've averaged approximately 20 a year and a significant number of those are innocent things where there's a part of the border that police or military from Mexico who are pursuing something, pursuing criminal or something may step across the border because they may not be aware of exactly where the line is.

Some of these may, in fact, involve instances where we have deserters from the Mexican military or police who are doing something illegal and we do catch them so that does happen but that is only a percentage of those. Sometimes it may be people who are dressed in what appear to be military uniforms but are just criminals. They're not military but they're wearing camouflage so someone assumes they are military and so sometimes we have those kinds of incursions. I think to create the image that somehow there is a deliberate effort by the Mexican military to cross the border would be to really to traffic in kind of scare tactics.

I don't think that we have a serious problem with official incursions. I think there's, again, we have good relations with the counterparts across the border. We do have instances where we have Mexican police or military who've deserted and become involved with criminal activity. But we've also had bad cops within the United States, too. It happens. We have a good relationship with the Mexicans and I think that treating this as an alarmist issue that suggests we're in danger of some significant overreaching is not accurate and not helpful."

Giving the Mexican military the benefit of the doubt they may not be aware of exactly where the line is along much of the border may work for the gullible -- or wilfully-blind politicians -- but it is totally unbelieveable in the case of the Texas incursions, because the border is marked by the Rio Grande River.

The truth is, the Bush administration is not about to get serious about border incursions unless Congress forces the issue. Just the opposite is true, in fact. In March of 2005, Bush invited Mexican President Vicente Fox and former Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin to a conflab at his ranch in Crawford, TX. The three globalists announced an initiative dubbed the "Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America," which is designed to establish a common continental security perimeter against outside threats while facilitating the legal flow of people and trade across shared borders and increasing cooperation on energy, the environment and bioterrorism. A Joint Statement by President Bush, President Fox, and Prime Minister Martin lays out the bare bones of the plan. None of this has had the input of Congress.

This is all part of a Council on Foreign Relations scheme to create a North American version of the European Union, with the entire western hemisphere brought under the umbrella eventually under the authority of NAFTA Plus, CAFTA and the FTAA trade agreements. The long-term goal is what it has always been for the CFR -- one-world government.

A CFR document, called "Building a North American Community," asserts that George W. Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox, and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin "committed their governments" to this goal when they met at Bush's ranch and at Waco, Texas on March 23, 2005. The three adopted the "Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America" and assigned "working groups" to fill in the details.

The 59-page CFR document spells out a five-year plan for the "establishment by 2010 of a North American economic and security community" with a common "outer security perimeter." "Common perimeter" means wide-open U.S. borders between the U.S., Mexico and Canada. The CFR's "integrated" strategy calls for "a more open border for the movement of goods and people." It calls for "a common economic space...for all people in the region, a space in which trade, capital, and people flow freely."

The CFR document lays "the groundwork for the freer flow of people within North America." The "common security perimeter" will require us to "harmonize visa and asylum regulations" with Mexico and Canada, "harmonize entry screening," and "fully share data about the exit and entry of foreign nationals."

This country needs another General Blackjack Pershing. HE knew how to handle things along the Mexican border!
