ISSUE: Characterization of Mexican gov’t helicopter crossing border, firing at U.S. Border Patrol

In this May 5, 2015 press release, Judicial Watch announced it obtained documents from the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) that confirm a June 26, 2014 attack by a Mexican government helicopter on U.S. Border Patrol agents. The Mexican helicopter crossed into U.S. airspace before firing on U.S. Border Patrol personnel. The Mexican government initially denied that the attack near Arizona’s San Miguel Gate occurred, but later admitted to the armed incursion.

The CBP documents were eventually released in response to a July 9, 2014 Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to CBP. The fact filled report, including important links, can be read here.

The day following the attack, the amnesty-promoting, south-of-the-border apologists at the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) headlined an article, “Mexican official says chopper didn’t cross border, fire at U.S. agents.”  It opens with these words, “A top Mexican official Friday denied a report by Customs and Border Protection that a Mexican helicopter crossed the border into Arizona and fired shots near U.S. agents Thursday.”

A search turned up no admission of the attack from the Mexican government reported in the Arizona newspaper.

In Repúblicaspeak, the U.S. agents are wrong. The Mexican official is right.  That’s it. End of story.

    Judicial Watch has provided the only reliable watchful eye reporting on these ongoing sorties. California Congressmen Duncan Hunter (first father and now son). have exposed the deplorable incursions. Arizona’s congressional delegation? They are all silent. Republicans and Democrats alike. No one wants to offend our good amigos in Mexico who have nothing but brazen disregard for American sovereignty and laws.

    So the senior director of the Criminal Investigation Agency of the Mexican Attorney General’s Office issues this shaky statement, “I don’t believe we crossed the border, because we had our (navigation devices), but it was exactly 100 meters from the border,” and we’re supposed to swallow that? The Mexican government is corrupt, from the top brass to the courts and military. Before my wife and I were knowledgeable about the extent of the criminality in Mexico, we purchased a vacation home there. After it became apparent the drug cartels were running things, we stopped visiting and finally unloaded it. NOTHING would bring us back.

    Today’s issue of the AZ Repulsive (which I read free at my morning breakfast spot) has an editorial extolling the virtues of building a trade alliance with the governor of our “neighboring state.”
    Are the liberal loonies talking about California, Nevada, New Mexico or Utah? No! The neighboring state is…..Sonora Mexico!!!

    Guess what makes newly elected Gov. Claudia Pavlovich Arellano such a desirable partner? According to the newspsper, Her “election marks the return of Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto’s PRI, or Institutional Revolutionary Party, to power in Sonora.”

    Swell. Now we’re supposed to celebrate the power of a “Revolutionary Party” at our doorstep? She joins the ranks of Karl Marx, Leon Trotsky, Frederich Engles, Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse Tung and their ilk.

  4. Frankly Speaking says:

    The US press usually refers to Mexico’s Revolutionary Party by the initials PRI, to conceal the actual name. The Local AZ newspaper is so left wing, they proudly wave the Revolutionary banner.

      The new Sonora Mexico governor ran this idiotic cartoon campaign ad treating Mexican voters as though they are mindless children. Then again, she knows them better than we do. She tell them she loves them. And she shows it with hearts! Te quiero muy mucho.

        The majority of the Mexican populace is illiterate. That’s why the Mexican government aided the illegal’s passage to the USA by printing comic books to guide them in their invasion of our country.

        What a fine group to be gifting with amnesty and driver’s licenses. They will no doubt enhance our country greatly while sapping our generosity by way of countless benefits and subsidies. I just finished reading Ann Coulter’s book “Adios America — The Left’s Plan To Turn Our Country Into A Third World Hellhole.” I highly recommend it to anyone worried about the future of this country and concerned over the actions of the Republican and Democrat traitors in Washington DC. As panderers, they really are indistinguishable.

        Here in Pima County (Tucson area) the effects of this uncontrolled and open border are horrifiying. We live the nightmare of abutting Nogales, Senora.

    your republican party……and you people still think its the lesser of two evils:

    Then there is this:
    Revealed: The Secret Immigration Chapter in Obama’s Trade Agreement

    Discovered inside the huge tranche of secretive Obamatrade documents released by Wikileaks are key details on how technically any Republican voting for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) that would fast-track trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal would technically also be voting to massively expand President Obama’s executive authority when it comes to immigration matters.

    Much Much more in the article, mandatory reading.

    the GOP in pushing this is DETERMINED to take jobs from americans and give them to foreigners while driving down wages.

    they want us to be the chambers of commerces slaves, while maintaining their own fiefdoms.

    There is NO lesser of evils party, this is us against the oligarchy and our rulers who will make us serfs at best.

    yes, keep bleeting the mantra that we “must vote republican” and this is what you get:
    Paul Ryan Cooks Up Elaborate Ruse To Save Immigration Components Of Obamatrade

    In the wake of revelations that technically a vote for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) would be a vote to grant the executive branch massively-expanded immigration powers, the Washington establishment cooked up an elaborate ruse to try to save the flailing Obamatrade bill……
    What Ryan is saying here — in response to concerns King raised about immigration provisions in trade agreements being fast-tracked under TPA in a previous letter to Ryan — is that Ryan will include an amendment in future legislation, not the current TPA. That means that the current TPA, if it passes the House, would still allow the immigration provisions to move forward. It also means the U.S. Senate could reject the amendment on the future legislation — which it probably will — and that if the Senate somehow does pass the legislation, Obama could veto it…..
    “Trust me,” Ryan attempted to answer. “This is why I took a belt-and-suspenders approach to this, which is — and this is why we worked with Mr. Sessions and Mr. King — for that very concern which is there are those who would like to us change, I think the prior president’s administration tried to move L visas in the Chilean agreement if I’m not mistaken. No. What we’ve said is, no. Zero. No. You cannot do this.”

    Of course, everything Ryan said — as Glyn Wright of Eagle Forum noted previously — was untrue.
