Mexican soldiers enter state, hold border agent at gunpoint

Four Mexican army soldiers entered southern Arizona and pointed their rifles at a U.S. Border Patrol agent early this week, the Border Patrol said.

The incident Sunday was the Mexican military’s 43rd incursion across the U.S. border since October, the agency said. However, it was unusual because firearms were involved. The Border Patrol and the Mexican government are investigating, Border Patrol spokesman Mike Scioli said.

Details remain sketchy, but the incident occurred at 2 a.m. on the Tohono O’odham Indian Reservation about 50 miles southeast of Ajo. The incident took place just north of the border in sight of the new border fence.   More from the Arizona Republic

The Mexican military held our Border Patrol at gunpoint – on our own soil – because of a misunderstanding of where the US/Mexican border is located.  It is my understanding it is the same place it’s been all along – right where their citizens continue to cross illegally into this country.
