Armed Mexican Troops Take U.S. Soldiers Prisoner On Texas Soil

Mexican troops disarmed two United States soldiers while they were on the American side of the border, the British news media reported. The Mexican soldiers took the American military personnel prisoners with their unauthorized entry into the U.S.

According to the newspaper Daily Mail in a statement, “Five to six Mexican military members questioned two U.S. Army soldiers who were conducting border support operations to assist the U.S. Border Patrol agents.”  The U.S. soldiers were on patrol in an unmarked Customs and Border Protection (CBP) vehicle at the southwest border adjacent to Clint,Texas.

Both military and Homeland Security Department officials confirmed that the Mexican troops were armed with what appeared to be so-called assault rifles. They raised their weapons and pointed them the two American soldiers. At that point the Mexican intruders took a pistol from one and put it in the CBP vehicle.

According to Britain’s Daily Mail, the two Americans obliged the Mexicans “in an attempt to deescalate a potential volatile situation.” However, not everyone is buying that excuse.

“This isn’t the first time foreign soldiers have entered the United States and used force against the U.S. military personnel or against Border Patrol agents or local police officers and sheriffs’ deputies,” said former police captain Jerry K. Nolan. “This shows how much respect our elected officials have for our sovereignty and national security,” Nolan added.

Pentagon is reviewing how U.S. soldiers responded during the incident in which Mexican troops detained and disarmed Americans on Texas soil.

While local ranchers in Texas, Arizona and New Mexico have endure  vandalized fences or walls, contaminated wells and armed robberies and other crimes almost on a daily basis from illegal immigrants streaming through, a Border Patrol agent in Texas said. There is “no doubt” that among the caravans of Central Americans are also illegal intruders from Pakistan and Afghanistan who are suspected radical Muslims and terrorists, raising significant national security concerns.

The Democratic Party’s elected officials and judges refuse to recognize that the President of the United States has the full authority and the full power to close the borders of the United States in order to protect the nation and citizens in the United States. It’s actually stipulated not only in the U.S. Constitution, but also in the U.S. federal code. It is Title VIII U.S. Code 1181(f).

It gives the president the power to suspend the entry of all aliens whenever he finds their entry would be detrimental to the interests of the United States. He can shut it down whenever he wants to, based on those criteria. It is statutory.

federal district court judges and state judiciaries blocked Trump’s orders regarding southern border security a number of times.  They also repeatedly stopped the President from restricting who enters our country from Muslim nations with a history of Islamist terrorism.
