As border tensions run high here in America, it seems that some are actually trying to keep it secure. It would be helpful if the Mexican military were competent in at least something along the lines of map reading – or something to that extent.

Just a few days ago we reported that Mexican military members crossed over into America and fired at U.S. border patrol agents before retreating back home to their country. As it turns out, yet another incident similar to this has happened, this time involving a helicopter.

According to reports, the incident occurred early Thursday morning where a Mexican helicopter, with soldiers inside, crossed the border and opened fire on border patrol agents. Fortunately they missed, turned around and high tailed it home to report what had happened.

Soon, the Mexican government was making a call to apologize.

According to KVOA:

We’ve received two statements regarding the incident:
Art del Cueto, Border Patrol Tucson Sector union president:

The incident occurred after midnight and before 6 a.m. Helicopter flew into the U.S. and fired on two U.S. Border Patrol agents. The incident occurred west of the San Miguel Gate on the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation. The agents were unharmed. The helicopter went back into Mexico. Mexico then contacted U.S. authorities and apologized for the incident.

Andy Adame, U.S. Border Patrol Spokesperson:

Early this morning, a Mexican law enforcement helicopter crossed approximately 100 yards north into Arizona nearly 8 miles southwest of the Village of San Miguel on the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation while on a drug interdiction operation near the border. Two shots were fired from the helicopter but no injuries or damage to US property were reported. The incident is currently under investigation.

So what do you guys think – it’d be one thing if it happened once, but twice in one week? What is so hard to stay within the confines of your country for Mexicans? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
