Mexican Cartel Shoots Over 50 Rounds at US Border Patrol Marine Unit in Rio Grande

A US border patrol marine unit on Friday morning was fired upon by Mexican cartels from the Mexican riverbank.

“Early this morning, agents assigned to the Rio Grande City Station Marine Unit patrolling near Fronton, Texas, reported they were fired upon from the Mexican riverbank. Agents saw four subjects with automatic weapons who shot over 50 rounds at them. The boat was hit several times but no one on board was injured,” Border Patrol announced on Friday.

This incident is currently under investigation.

Tensions between the US and Mexico have been escalating as President Trump fights to stop the invasion of illegal aliens.

Last month Border Patrol council Brandon Judd appeared on Fox Business to discuss the crisis at the border and Trump’s new asylum law aimed at stopping the flow of Central American migrants.

Judd revealed that Mexican soldiers crossed into the US through the Rio Grande river and got into a scuffle with US border patrol agents.

“We just had another ‘Mexican military incursion’ into the United States,” Judd said. “We had several military personnel from Mexico cross the Rio Grande river and come up to our fence, which is about 200 yards north into the United States — they were looking around and when an agent responded, the vast majority of them went back.”

Recall, just a couple months ago, Mexican military personnel actually disarmed US soldiers.

A group of armed Mexican soldiers disarmed and detained two US soldiers on the US side of the border near Clint, Texas on April 13th.

Shooting across the border at our law enforcement could be considered an act of war.

How do they know? Does the "cartel" wear uniforms, fly colors?
Usually tats , bandanas, colors ... Yeah, they identify. They never know when they may cross a brother gang.

They weren't Marines. They were BP in a boat.

The marines should have called in an arc light. Fire up Juan.

But, yeah!

Arc light.

This would be "cartel" then too? Just not the same cartel.
Nope, a Cartel is bigger than a Gang. A cartel can be a conglomeration of gangs that hold a commonality.

Playing devils advocate here.
What would you guys do if you see an armed invader strolling around?

I hope every one realizes weapons of war can be turned on the domestic population in an instant.
