America is facing a crisis. We must complete the construction of a wall on our southern border. The massive invasion from Mexico, Central and South America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia are putting our citizens who live on the border are in extreme danger, while our U.S. Border Patrol agents and U.S. troops assigned to the border, are literally putting their lives on the line every minute of every day.
On April 13, a U.S. Army sergeant and a private were sitting in an unmarked Chevrolet Tahoe owned by U.S. Customs and Border Protection on the U.S. side of the Rio Grande in El Paso County, TX, when they were approached by heavily armed Mexican soldiers.
Newsweek reports – At roughly 2:00 p.m. local time, the soldiers observed five to six individuals dressed in green pixelated military camouflage uniforms and carrying weapons, which appeared to be FX-05 Xiuhcoatl, an assault rifle designed and built for the Mexican armed forces.
The armed men swiftly approached the U.S. service members, crossing over from the Mexican side of the Rio Grande River into U.S. territory, ordering the soldiers out of their vehicle at gunpoint.
In Texas, the border fence does not align perfectly with the topography of the precise location of the U.S.-Mexico border—this creates a buffer zone between the actual, often invisible, border and the fence.
Earlier this week, we published an article about how triple amputee veteran, Brian Kolfage of We Build The Wall, was able to navigate between our open borders with Mexico, unassisted, in a wheelchair. Kris Kobach, former secretary of state in Kansas, who is part of the We Build The Wall project, can be seen standing on the southern border of the United States and Mexico, divided by a boundary sign, a few rocks, and a small metal fence.
The photo below shows how the wall on our southern border near El Paso, TX literally ends with a small cement barricade that appears to be between 2-3 feet tall.
Newsweek obtained a copy of the serious incident report generated 30 minutes after Mexican military members briefly detained and held at gunpoint U.S. military service members after believing the U.S. Army soldiers were in Mexican territory when in fact, the Mexican military had unknowingly crossed into U.S. territory. The report was reviewed by U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Timothy D. Gatlin, the commander of 1st Battalion, 37th Field Artillery Regiment and briefed to U.S. Army Lieutenant General Jeffrey Buchanan, the commanding general of U.S. Army North.
Speaking in Spanish, the Mexican soldiers instructed the sergeant and the private to move to the front of their vehicle where they were “gently searched,” according to the incident report.
The sergeant’s service pistol, the Beretta M9, was removed from his hip by the individuals and thrown inside the unmarked U.S. government vehicle.
The U.S. service members reported they did not see “any identifiable seals or symbols on the individual’s vehicle,” and “could not identify any patches or name tapes on the uniform except for the Mexican flags.”
The U.S. service members reported hearing someone from the south side yell “Vamonos” in Spanish. The Mexican military members went back to their vehicle, described as a “dark blue Ford pickup truck with a tactical rack in the back.”
Are the Democrats winning the war on the border wall? Is refusing to secure our southern border over their hatred for President Trump worth the political risk? Please tell us what you think in the comment section below.
