What?! Mexican Army Invades America Through Arizona!

It is hardly news anymore that Mexican citizens, emboldened by the left’s embrace of amnesty, are crossing America’s southern border with increasingly brazenness. This week, however, authorities in Arizona confirmed the U.S. was actually invaded by a number of soldiers with the Mexican Army earlier this year.

The apparently rogue unit of armed forces was tasked with patrolling the Mexican side of the Arizona border, reports indicate. According to a letter to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn alleges that soldiers within the unit crossed into Arizona and pointed their weapons at agents with the U.S. Border Patrol.

Even more disturbing, at least one expert said this is far from an isolated incident.

“From what I understand, this has happened hundreds of times before,” said author and border security analyst Sylvia Longmire.

Her contention is bolstered by federal reports, released after a Freedom of Information Act request, showing Mexican soldiers have crossed the border more than 300 times during the past 18 years.

Local Border Patrol Union President Art de Cueto explained how frustrating and inherently dangerous situations like the recent invasion can be.

“A lot of these encounters happen in the middle of the night where, you know, the lighting is low and you don’t know who you’re encountering. You’re sitting there and seeing a group of guys coming up to you and they’re all carrying long arms, you don’t know what you’re encountering.”

When confronted, the soldiers reportedly told U.S. agents they had been trailing drug smugglers and inadvertently wandered into America.

Longmire, however, confirmed “there was some confusion as to whether that’s what the Mexican Army was doing because there was no evidence found by the Border Patrol of any drug smugglers in the area.”

Arivaca, Ariz. resident Ronald Ayers recalled the scene a few years ago when a Mexican Army helicopter landed near his property.

The aircraft “flew around behind the barn, landed, and then several men got out all clad in black with masks over their face and body armor, carrying what looked to be full automatic weapons,” he said.

Despite telling agents with the FBI and CBP about the encounter, he said he has yet to find out anything about the apparent Mexican incursion. Similarly, Coburn’s letter regarding the January invasion – which requested response by early February – has still not been addressed.

Not only does it appear our government is welcoming illegal immigrants from Mexico with open arms; authorities are also apparently willing to look the other way as their military routinely invades our nation.

    Well this is NO surprise, is it? With Obama welcoming ALL into our nation, and making it a “Dumping Ground as he expects tax payers to pick up the tab for these Illegal Aliens for THEIR healthcare/housing/food, etc
    and Jeb Bush claiming, they enter OUT OF LOVE…what the ph uck is going on with this ‘man in the Whitehouse who is NOT protecting OUR BORDERS, and
    sat by, when agent Brian Terry WAS KILLED? He gives a shite less, that any Americans would be killed, and this army is entering-Obama would ONLY make some stupid excuse about “How secure our borders are…yeah, right”
    He wants to “Dumb Down America, with these people, and GET THEM TO VOTE FOR DEMS, WHO WILL PLAY SANTA CLAUS TO THEM.” He is a FAILURE to America

    I can tell you ItsJo, this so-called president of ours calls himself an American. But that’s a joke of a president showing more favoritism to anyone illegal or foreign and to hell with a real American. He is out to destroy our beloved Country. He wants it to be a “Dictatorship” with him in charge.
