Drug Cartels Hiring Mexican Military To Enter US And Carry Out Hit Jobs

VVVVVVVVVVVVV

Last Updated: 06/26/2008 Current event at bottom of post.

^^^^^^^^^^^

In one of the most disturbing Mexican government incursions into the U.S., three members of Mexico’s army conducted a home invasion and assassination operation in Arizona this week that killed one person and littered a neighborhood with gunfire.

Phoenix police say the Mexican military officers were hired by one of that country’s renowned drug cartels to carry out the deadly operation. The three invaders were dressed in military tactical gear and were armed with AR-15 assault rifles. They clearly had military training and the one Mexican soldier who was captured said the gang was completely prepared to ambush Phoenix police.

Official police memorandums documenting the violent incident have been posted on a local news web site and the information is unbelievable. The reports provide details of the “drug rip,” which officials describe as a tactical assault in which approximately 100 rounds were fired. Windows were raked and doors were breached as the heavily armed Mexican soldiers entered the residence clad in body armor, black combat boots, ballistic helmets and thigh holsters.

One of the police documents specifically says that all the suspects are Mexican military coming into the United States with full tactical gear and police raid shirts to conduct home invasions. Another memo points out that Mexican drug cartels are increasingly moving north of the border to protect themselves from rival cartels. The sophisticated operations have for years used military tactics and personnel and now the violence has shifted to Phoenix.

The problem is severe and will only get worst, leaving one local law enforcement expert to recommend that police enlist present and past military personnel to assist with training and response to such sophisticated and potentially lethal military tactics.

Mexican military incursions are more common than most Americans might think. Judicial Watch has made public the astounding amount of incidents that occur regularly yet go unpunished by the U.S. government. Mexican military incursion reports obtained from the Department of Homeland Security through the Freedom of Information Act reveal that 226 incursions by Mexican government personnel into the U.S. occurred between 1996 and 2005. In 2007 alone, 25 incursions occurred along the U.S.-Mexico border involving Mexican military and/or law enforcement.

Invasion: Mexican Army member(s) commit(s) Phoenix home invasion and murder

A top member of a Phoenix police union is standing by reports that at least one of the men involved in a Monday morning home invasion and homicide was an active member in the Mexican Army. Click Here for the update.

“Even if you put aside the Mexican military, you have illegals in the country…they’re protected with tactical gear using tactical strategies in police uniforms willing to ambush police officers. I think that’s bad enough,” said Mark Spencer, President of the Phoenix Police Enforcement Association.

While on the J.D. Hayworth show Tuesday, Mark Spencer announced that the suspects were hired by drug cartels to perform home invasions and murders.

The incident at 8329 W. Cypress St. resulted in the death of the homeowner. Between 50 and 100 rounds were fired at the house.

Spencer said a police officer told him that one of the men captured said they were completely prepared to ambush Phoenix police, but ran out of ammunition.

Judicial Watch Releases Shocking New Border Patrol Report on Mexican Government Incursions
into the United States for Fiscal Year 2007

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today released a U.S. Border Patrol report titled, “Mexican Government Incidents – 2007 Fiscal Year Report,” obtained under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The report describes 25 confirmed incursions in 2007 along the U.S. - Mexican border involving Mexican military and/or law enforcement personnel. The document is available at the Judicial Watch Internet site at www.judicialwatch.org/archive/2008/FY2007MexIncursionReport.pdf (large file, 31 pages). Among the incidents cited:

MEXICAN MILITARY INCURSION (ARMED/INTENTIONAL) TUCSON/TUCSON – On April 23, 2007, Border Patrol Agents…reported a Mexican military incursion on the Tres Bellotas Ranch near Arivaca, Arizona. The agents were using night vision equipment and observed…seven to ten Mexican military personnel in Humvees carrying long arms…The agents continued to back away from the [soldiers] when they heard [one] soldier chamber a round into his rifle. The agents observed…that the military personnel had fanned out in a tactical formation on both sides of the US/Mexico International Boundary.

MEXICAN MILITARY INCURSION (ARMED/INTENTIONAL) TUCSON SECTOR/SONOITA SECTOR – On July 5, 2007 a Border Patrol Agent…encountered six subjects dressed in tan colored BDU style clothing…A military style Humvee and a black Suburban were parked on the Mexican side of the border…Two of the subjects appeared to be carrying bundles of narcotics on their backs.

MEXICAN POLICE INCURSION (ARMED/INTENTIONAL) EL CENTRO SECTOR/CALEXICO STATION – On August 26, 2007, Remote Video Surveillance System operators…observed a red Ford F150 south of the All American Canal between the United States and Mexico…Agents…encountered the vehicle and performed a vehicle stop…The agents found credentials on the driver indicating that [name redacted] is an Agent of the Mexican Agencia Federal de Investigation.

Overall, between 1996 and September 30, 2007 there have been 278 confirmed incursions into the United States by Mexican Government personnel according to the Border Patrol Field Intelligence Center. Prior to release to Judicial Watch, the Department of Homeland Security evaluated the information in the report as “For Official Use Only” and containing “Law Enforcement Sensitive Information.” Mexican Government incursion reports for 2003 through 2006 are also available on the Judicial Watch Internet site at http://judicialwatch.org/mexican-government-incursion-reports.

“This latest report on Mexican government personnel incursions is downright frightening. Our Border Patrol is facing Mexican military operations without the necessary back-up. This report shows our sovereignty is being violated with impunity,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Mexican Military Helicopter Enters Texas Airspace For Second Time

Zapata County, TX -- Authorities have released photos from a second Mexican military helicopter incursion into Zapata County.

The incursion was reported over the Four Seasons Mobile Home & RV Park and the Beacon Resort west of Zapata around 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

Zapata County Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez said that the helicopter hovered in the area for about five to 10 minutes.

Several witnesses, including a federal law enforcement official, captured pictures and video of the Mexican military helicopter.

Sheriff Gonzalez said several people were terrified and frightened by the helicopter's presence.

Gonzalez said the helicopter clearly had the word "Marina" written on it, an indication the helicopter belonged to the Mexican Navy.

The Mexican Navy could not immediately be reached for comment but it has increased its presence along the border to fight drug traffickers.

Sheriff Gonzalez said the helicopter flew over the two RV parks and was seen hovering over the home belonging to the owners of a local oil & gas exploration company.

Gonzalez said he spoke with the homeowner but there was no apparent reason why the helicopter would have been there.

Sheriff Gonzalez said he's frustrated that state and federal officials have not done anything about the situation since the last helicopter incursion last month.

The sheriff said he's worried local officials aren't being notified about joint operations with the Mexican military.

Gonzalez said another possibility is that that Mexican military officials are being used to drop off drugs or illegal immigrants.

A Mexican military helicopter was spotted in a rural community near Falcon Dam about three weeks ago.

U.S. Congressman Henry Cuellar said in a previous statement the federal government is aware of the issue.

What Interested Me

What interested me was that three professional military armed with AR15 rifles fired between 50 and 100 shots and RAN OUT OF AMMO.

Then one of them told the police they were prepared to take on the police force. But they RAN OUT OF AMMO.

It's a good thing they didn't think things through too well, or more might have died.

Which article mentioned the ammo?

And are you sure they didn't just have to reload?

Invasion: Mexican Army

Invasion: Mexican Army member(s) commit(s) Phoenix home invasion and murder

"Spencer said a police officer told him that one of the men captured said they were completely prepared to ambush Phoenix police, but ran out of ammunition."

Spencer being Mark Spencer, President of the Phoenix Police Enforcement Association.

I guess if anybody commits a home invasion

and was ever in the military at any time, we can say the Army conducted a home invasion. :D

Apparently, you missed the

Apparently, you missed the part about the Phoenix police saying that at least one was active Mexican military.

And that they stand by their report.

Now I think the Phoenix police would be more credible than ICE. Because if ICE ever admitted that an active member of the Mexican military illegally crossed our border and murdered an American citizen they might have to start enforcing our federal immigration laws.

And the federal government might have to get serious about securing our border.

Oh, and that's Mexican military, not the generic "military."

Also, three of the invaders got away, so we'll never know their Mexican military status.

Yup. And they were totally not AWOL or anything.

The Mexican government just has dudes in tac gear stroll over the border and machinegun people. It's nice and low profile.

Please. Think about this for like, thirty seconds.

CHA-CHING!

Apparently, they do. MEXICAN

Apparently, they do.

Well, this looks like strolling over the border and

machinegunning people in their homes. And I'm sure they were ordered to straddle the border with their tactical formation. They weren't just patrolling and veered 20 meters off.

CHA-CHING!

The biggest question is....

why did you choose to link to a trash blog? Even they are back peddling on their initial story with so damned many facts wrong! The quality of posters here has degraded to crap! Read!

http://kfyi.com/pages/local_news.html?feed=118695&article=38...

It's ICE who back peddled,

It's ICE who back peddled, which can be expected. Do you really believe they would ever be allowed to admit that a person who was active Mexican military illegally crossed our border and murdered a US citizen?

However, the Phoenix police officer(s) stand by their report, that at least one was active Mexican military and remember three of them got away, so we will never know whether or not they were also military.

BTW did you read the actual police reports, it's at the KFYI link?

Also the same can be said about quality of the replies.

CAREFUL!!

This Article is almost 2 years old!!!!!

Yes, you are correct,

it is almost two years and in all that time the federal government has done nothing to secure our borders, so incidents like this do not continue to happen.

However, the two helicopter incursions are much more current.

Suggestion

It would have been more honest if the poster had titled this thread

Rogue Mexican Soldiers Working for Drug Cartel Make Home Invasion, Assassination In Arizona Neighborhood-Mexican Government Not Involved.

Why is this not an act of war? Because no government was involved.

Even if the Mexican government were involved, they would have been doing nothing more than our own CIA has been doing around the world for several decades.

When agents of this country murder civilians in Afghanistan or elsewhere, there is always an attempt to either cover it up or to deny that they were acting under military orders.

I sent this out to selected contacts.

Thanks for posting.

BTW, I made the heading a bit more objective first :-)

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

Declaration of war? Please.

Spare us the sensationalist headlines. These dudes were paid by drug smugglers to knock of some other drug smuggler. Of course they had military equipment. That's why they got paid to do it.

The problem is A. the illegal drug trade and B. the vast amount of money the illegal drug trade makes which allows the military and police forces to be corrupted.

For some reason everybody is all "ololol why isn't this war" without any of false flag or government conspiracy bs. I'm curious as to why that is. It just kills me how willfully double minded people are some time.

CHA-CHING!

Address? Got an ADDRESS? Got a map?

I am here in Phoenix and I have not heard of such things happening. Zapata County, TX ??? Never heard of it happening like that in Arizona. Got a map?

Perhaps I am on DP too much. But I find it interesting that NOT ONE ADDRESS is provided.

The closest thing to an address is the following:

"The incursion was reported over the Four Seasons Mobile Home & RV Park and the Beacon Resort west of Zapata around 3:30 p.m. Sunday. Zapata County Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez said that the helicopter hovered in the area for about five to 10 minutes. Several witnesses, including a federal law enforcement official, captured pictures and video of the Mexican military helicopter."

The address for the home

The address for the home invasion was 8329 W. Cypress St.

"The incident at 8329 W. Cypress St. resulted in the death of the homeowner. Between 50 and 100 rounds were fired at the house."

These are two different events

this address is from the Arizona incident 2 years ago. Where was the Zapata incident?

I'm a little confused. Are

I'm a little confused. Are you questioning whether or not it happened? Because if that's it, you can call U.S. Congressman Henry Cuellar, according to the article he says "the federal government is aware of the issue."

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Bump

This is crazy.They definitely need the National Guard if not the Army down on their border.
Or as the other poster replied with that double layer fence that California has.
Man I would be armed to the teeth if I lived in Arizona.
I can only imagine what would happen if the Cuban military had thugs come into South Florida like this.

I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees...

I'd bet if that Mexican helicopter got shot down by some

locals they'd think twice about flying over our airspace again.

Defense is the duty of each and every one of us. If your life or country are threatened, why hesitate to defend it?

Want to guess who supplied

Want to guess who supplied Mexico with that helicopter? If you guessed the Obama administration, you would be correct.

I don't know about you, but I can think of a better use for that $80M they gave Mexico. Maybe build a double fence along the border?

U.S. Taxpayers Funding Mexican Military And Incursions

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pledged support for the Mexican government in March of 2009 by purchasing Blackhawk helicopters for Mexican military and police saying, “I’m pleased to announce that the Obama administration working closely with Congress intends to provide more than 80 million dollars in urgently needed funding for Mexican law enforcement.” “These aircraft will help Mexican police respond aggressively and successfully to the threats coming from the cartels,” Clinton said.

Hehe

Hell ya.

I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees...

Ask yourself why CA isn't

Ask yourself why CA isn't having to deal with incursions?

Might it be that double border fence they have between themselves and Mexico?

That fence is so effective the federal government doesn't want it built in any other state. Why else would they try and push their drones and electronic monitoring on AZ. All of which don't work.

Do you mean the San Diego

Do you mean the San Diego double layer border fence that former rep. Duncan Hunter was responsible for getting built? I'd read about it, how it caused a huge drop in illegal border crossings and pushed illegal border crossings into other areas where the fence didn't exist.
One can't help wonder if they've ever dug tunnels under it. Some say tunneling under the border(whether a fence is present of not)is a big problem, but I'd read one article which suggested that geophones(and other measures) could help prevent tunneling under the border.

I know they use tunnels.. my

I know they use tunnels.. my friend the Navy Seal used them as "training" exercises to use explosives and blew them up.

CHA-CHING!

border enforcement

it's like beating a dead horse.

how many different ways can it be said?

focus on border enforcement first. now.

and a declaration of war?

don't be an idiot. those murders represented themselves, and in no way the official government of mexico.

they are equivalent to pirates.
