The U.S. military is about to announce some very bad news for Mexico
The situation along the southern border is a crisis.
And Mexico just escalated tensions with an outrageous decision.
But the U.S. military is going to respond by announcing some very bad news for Mexico.
Americans were outraged to learn about an incident along the border where Mexican troops waded into U.S. territory and disarmed and questioned American troops at gun point.
The Pentagon immediately announced it was reviewing its procedures to make sure a provocation like this never happened again.
The Daily Caller reports:
A spokesman for the Pentagon says it’s reviewing the procedures that led to Mexican troops disarming and questioning two American soldiers at the U.S. southern border.
“This is the first incident that we’re aware of that the two militaries came together,” a senior defense official with Northern Command (NORTHCOM) said to the Washington Examiner. The Pentagon’s investigation “will help us modify any instructions that we’re giving the troops,” the official continued.
The investigation follows an incident on April 13 where two American soldiers in Clint, Texas, found themselves surrounded, disarmed and questioned by Mexican troops on U.S. territory.
The American soldiers were near the southwest border in an unmarked Customs and Border Protection (CBP) vehicle when an unmarked truck approached them. Five or six Mexican nationals, each of them strapped with FX-05 Xiuhcoatl rifles, appeared and reportedly began to question their activities. In an effort to de-escalate the situation, one U.S. soldier allowed his Beretta M9 service pistol to be temporarily confiscated.
Trump supporters cheered the President’s decision to deploy the military to the border to help stem the illegal alien invasion.
Mexican troops know that U.S. soldiers are not going to open fire on them.
So they tested what they could get away with in order to help facilitate the flood of migrants over the southern border.
