    It's getting a little hotter down there.....yes peaceful immigrants looking for honest work

    http://today.reuters.com/news/newsarticle.aspx?type=domesticNews&storyid=2006-01-05T183209Z_01_SIB566190_RTRUKOC_0_US-MEXICO-USA.xml&rpc=22

    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - U.S. Border Patrol agents have come under fire twice along the Rio Grande in Texas in recent days amid rising tension on the frontier with Mexico, although no one was reported wounded, U.S. authorities said on Thursday.

    A Border Patrol spokesman said unknown gunmen fired on agents on patrol in Brownsville, Texas, late on Wednesday. It was not immediately clear if the shots came from Mexico or from within the United States.

    "Shots were fired, no one was injured and the FBI have taken the case over," Jose Rodriguez, a spokesman for the Border Patrol in McAllen, Texas, said by telephone.

    Rodriguez said the shooting was the second along the same stretch of the Rio Grande in the past week, after agents patrolling the area in a launch on Friday came under a volley of gunfire from Mexico.

    "On that occasion the shooters were hiding in brush on the Mexican side of the river ... The launch was struck by five bullets, although there were no injuries," he said.

    That incident came on the same day a Border Patrol agent fatally shot a teenage Mexican immigrant as he crossed the border near San Diego on December 30, triggering widespread anger in Mexico and calls for a full investigation.

    Speaking to Mexican diplomats late on Wednesday, President Vicente Fox reiterated calls by the Mexican government for clarification of the killing, and pledged to "ensure that total justice is done in the case."

    The 2,000-mile (3,200-km) U.S.-Mexico border has always been dangerous, although violent attacks on Border Patrol agents have risen in recent months, especially in Arizona, where around half the 1.2 million undocumented immigrants nabbed crossing from Mexico were detained last year.

    The Tucson sector Border Patrol said attacks on agents havroe almost doubled in recent months, and included cases in which officers have been shot at, rammed with cars and pelted with rocks by immigrants and smugglers.

    Hopefully, once the Bush "guest worker" plan is put in place this violence will stop.

    Go back to sleep, the problem is solved.

    The Mexicans are simply doing the shootings that Americans refuse to do...

    the solution would be to defend one's self and not run. Law enforcement should not be on our borders to protect us from invaders. The military should, the LEO's could be there to aid americans in their legal movements across the border.

    I have a feeling its drug runners doing the shooting. I dont see why regular folks would try and shoot the border patrol while crossing over for work. It just draws attention. I also dont see many Americans busting their ass in the sun all day picking oranges for $3 bushel. So someone better have a damned good plan before we push all the illegals back into Mexico and seal off the border.

    Unless the FBI can surround the shooters in a flammable building, I don't expect much from the FBI.

    Yes, it would be tragic if we had to pick our own oranges, clean bathrooms,
    etc,fact is if we cannot do this work then we don't deserve to occupy this
    country and should turn it over to those who will.:rolleyes:

    Drugs, drugs, drugs and other illicit trades. People say putting up a harder border won't stop illegal immigration. I agree, it won't stop it. It will slow it down, and it will slow down and make it harder and more expensive for "raiding" parties to just drive on through unmolested as easily as they have. Maybe I am an idealist....:rolleyes:

    It's probably because they can draw more money from unemployment or welfare and not have to bust their ass in the meantime.

    Yeah, it's called LEGAL IMMIGRATION AND WORK VISA's. That's how we have been doin' it the USA way for years. That's how many hardworking people who took the risk to come here made their way. So your advocating illegal immigration? :scrutiny:

    i don't know the story here,but human smugglers are called coyotes i think,and i am reasonably sure this type of individual has killed people in other smuggling activities,and is certainly not going to let one border patrolman interfere with his turnaround.

    Just like the illegal drug trade, or the illegal alcohol trade (during prohibition), illegal immigration creates a market for only rats will exploit. Best way to solve that problem? Remove the "il" from "illegal". Tht way, we could pay someone to pick our oranges, clean bathrooms, etc. Like we're doing now, just without the black market economy to deal with.

    Note: Due to the new high levels of web traffic, the ALIPAC website will be down for a few hours sometime over the next two days as we upgrade our capacity.

    ALIPAC Supporters:

    Sorry for the late notice, we have been swamped with demand.

    There will be a national day of protest this Sat and we wanted you to have the details. Below you will find complete information. You may want to link up with a protest that is already arranged in your state or you may want to start your own with some friends. Please exercise caution in California, New Mexico, and Arizona as we have received word that the communists, socialists, and Aztlan separatist Goons will be out in some of those areas.

    While ALIPAC's main focus is on the Congress, we like to provide you with events that you might want to support or participate in. Please forward this alert to your contacts.

    Here are the details. For further guidance and info contact http://www.firecoalition.com/ or http://www.ctcitizensforimmigrationcontrol.com/

    Which is precisely why drug runners or anyone smuggling anything else would not do it. Unless they happen to be their own best customers.

    My own guess is paid agent provocateurs - possibly Mexican army, agents or police on whom suspicion by their own agencies is not likely to fall or be investigated, or whom in all likelyhood would part of the official responders in the response and investigation south of the border.

    Or it could be common thugs or gangbangers doing what might be expected of them.

    Actually, more people than you would expect are effected, and these immigrants don't only do jobs that "none of you all want to do".

    There is a huge number of illegal immigrants in the Washington area and they have also moved up to Baltimore. There aren't exactly a lot of farming jobs around here. Where do they work? In restaraunts, hotels, factories, construction, retail establishments, bars, as maids, as nannies, etc. A few years ago, I worked a second job in a pizza place as a delivery driver. I was one of two citizens, and almost all of the non-citizens were here in the US illegally. Guess what I was paid, the same as I was when I delivered pizza 15 years ago.

    If you work in the service industry, in manual labor, in construction, as a domestic (nanny or maid), etc. you are effected even if you have a job. How? Lower wages. It is basic economics- when you have a large pool of people willing to work for next to nothing it will drive down wages as a whole (even in employers unwilling to hire illegals since they will only pay the "prevailing wage" and that wage is effected by illegals).

    thats another story which you have to take up with the people hiring them so that they can lower wages(mainly the money hungry employers)...but to say its ok to shoot them when crossing the border, I dont think is right....

    Umm, I don't know what article you just read but the one I read had Mexicans shooting at US Border Patrol agents, not Americans shooting at people illegally crossing the border. Also, I don't see where I, or anyone else here, has advocated shooting people crossing the border. :rolleyes:
