Border Patrol Shot At FROM Mexico

A border patrol agent came under fire from across the Mexican border. The Washington Examiner reports:

Bullets that hit a U.S. Border Patrol agent’s car in California Sunday morning may have been fired from across the border in Mexico, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

“Mexican authorities were contacted as the shooting appeared to originate from the Mexican side of the border. Mexican authorities responded and initially took two subjects into custody, one of them was in possession of a handgun, the other was released,” the CBP said in a Monday statement.

According to CBP, a U.S. Border Patrol agent’s car was hit by the bullet while he was parked at the U.S.-Mexico border in southern California early Sunday morning. The agent had been on duty and inside his Chevy Tahoe truck when driver’s side back seat door was struck with bullets.

The incident happened around 2:15 a.m. PT “immediately north” of the international boundary, about a mile and a half west of the San Ysidro Port of Entry in southern California.

This is pushing border violence to the next level – will Mexican cartels now snipe border patrol agents from the other side of the border?
