Suspected drug cartel operatives are now firing at Border Patrol with heavy weaponry if the Patrol gets in the way of illegals coming across the border. Nothing from Obama on this. He does express concern when the EU is involved in an incident, but Border Patrol – nothing.
Border Patrol has already made it known that cartels control the border. The cartels have just taken it one step further.
Border Patrol had to take cover Friday night when high-powered rifles were let loose and directed at them, Fox News reported in an exclusive.
Border Patrol doesn’t have armor to protect from what appeared to be .50 caliber gunfire.
“When the shooting stopped, about 40 to 50 people came out on the U.S. side and turned themselves in. So clearly the rounds were being fired to suppress every effort to stop anybody intervening with anyone or anything coming across,” Rep. Louis Gohmert said. “We have no idea what or how many or whom came across with the other illegal immigrants.”
“I don’t know why we’re out here like sitting ducks,” one Border Patrol source said. “We need help.”
Obama continues to do nothing besides blame Republicans for not passing an immigration bill that would have done nothing to stop this.
The border is completely vulnerable to cartel infiltration.
