• Obama ignores criminal elements of Mexican army as they threaten U.S. border agents on U.S. territory.
By Victor Thorn —
On three separate occasions in 2014, soldiers in the Mexican army have crossed America’s southern border and attacked United States citizens. This is not the first time this has happened. Mexican forces have conducted similar acts at least 300 times since 1996. Amazingly, the mainstream media ignores this big story.
On January 26 near Sasabe, Arizona, two Mexican soldiers toting Heckler & Koch G3 NATO battle rifles threatened U.S. Border Patrol agents. Decked out in camouflage to conceal their identities, the Mexicans lied that they were in pursuit of illegal drug traffickers. When federal agents refused to accept their story, the Mexicans brandished weapons and held off the American lawmen for 35 minutes. Only after the agents radioed for backup and drew their guns did the Mexicans relent.
Days later, the Mexican embassy admitted that these individuals were soldiers in the Mexican army. Unbelievably, after the U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner notified White House officials about the incident, the Obama administration refused to even file a complaint with the Mexican government.
Given its geography and proximity to Mexico, Arizona is the state that is most impacted by these types of activities. “U.S. officials said it was one of nearly two dozen border incursions by Mexican soldiers into southern Arizona in the last four years,” reported the Los Angeles Times.”
In March, another border violation occurred when members of the Mexican army opened fire on a Tucson man, Javier Rodriguez, who was visiting his family. Shot twice, Rodriguez spent three weeks in the hospital, accumulating a $43,000 medical bill.
If that’s not bad enough, Ronald Ayers of Arivaca, Ariz. recently revealed how a military chopper belonging to the Mexican army entered U.S. airspace.
“A helicopter flew very low,” said Ayers. “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.”
On May 7, this reporter spoke with Russell K. Pearce, former president of the Arizona State Senate. Prior to his political career, Pearce served as a deputy sheriff for 23 years, some of it under America’s toughest sheriff, Joe Arpaio. As the primary sponsor of Arizona’s S.B. 1070, the strictest anti-illegal immigration bill in recent years, Pearce has long stood as a champion of securing America’s southern border.
Speaking about the Mexican army’s illegal incursions onto U.S. soil, Pearce told this newspaper: “The examples from this year aren’t isolated, and they’ve happened before on many occasions. It’s out of control. The Obama administration knows about it, and Senator John Cornyn [R-Tex.] has asked for an investigation. The Department of Homeland Security has ignored every request.”
When asked for specific details, Pearce said: “In addition to the Mexican army, you also have gang members, drug cartels and human smugglers all crossing our border into the U.S. It’s virtually a declaration of war. If that’s not an invasion, I don’t know what is.”
In terms of the Obama administration, Pearce was clear in saying who is to blame in the U.S. for doing nothing to stop the illegal border crossings.
“Obama is encouraging this invasion with his policies,” said Pearce. But rather than stopping them, Obama comes after the people who choose to enforce our laws. The greatest threat to U.S. national security right now is illegal alien murderers and sex offenders that keep entering our country. But Obama doesn’t fight them. Instead, he’s fighting people like me and Joe Arpaio. Obama is the most dangerous man to ever occupy the White House. He has no respect for our rule of law or Constitution.”
