Attention invaders: Never bring a rock to a gun fight.
Mexicans are seething over the second death of a countryman at the hands of U.S. Border Patrol agents in two weeks, an incident near downtown El Paso that is threatening to escalate tensions over migrant issues.
Seething? Welcome to the club, mutherfuckers. We’ve been seething over your illegal aliens sneaking into our country for years.
U.S. authorities said Tuesday a Border Patrol agent was defending himself and colleagues when he fatally shot the 15-year-old as officers came under a barrage of big stones while trying to detain illegal immigrants on the U.S. side of the Rio Grande.
……Preliminary reports on the incident indicated that U.S. officers on bicycle patrol “were assaulted with rocks by an unknown number of people,” Border Patrol Special Operations Supervisor Ramiro Cordero said Tuesday.
Of course, Calderon has his sombrero in a bunch:
Mexican President Felipe Calderon said Tuesday that his government “will use all resources available to protect the rights of Mexican migrants.”
The government “reiterates its rejection to the disproportionate use of force on the part on U.S. authorities on the border with Mexico,” the president added in a statement.
1. Our laws don’t cover the “rights” of illegal aliens—Mexicans or otherwise.
2. Our resources are designed to protect our borders and hunt down the illegal alien felons who cross without authorization.
On an unpaved street, gathered around Hernandez’s gray metal casket, the teen’s family called for justice.
“There is a God, so why would I want vengeance if no one will return him to me. They killed my little boy and the only thing I ask is for the law” to be applied, said the boy’s father, Jesus Hernandez.
Newsflash Jesus: Your son broke the law. He also committed bodily injury against law enforcement officers whose job it is to protect and secure the border.
……Mexico’s Foreign Relations Department said its records indicate the number of Mexicans killed or wounded by U.S. immigration authorities rose from five in 2008 to 12 in 2009 to 17 so far this year, which is not half over.
Only 17? Expect that number to rise as the threats and violence increase from criminals who have a feckless sense of entitlement. They think they’re entitled to cross into the United States carte blanche, regardless of the law or the consequences.
T.J. Bonner, president of the union representing Border Patrol agents, said rock throwing aimed at Border Patrol agents is common and capable of causing serious injury.
“It is a deadly force encounter, one that justifies the use of deadly force,” Bonner said.
We are being invaded by ruthless felons; many of whom are rapists, murderers, MS13 gang members, thieves, and a variety of other assorted miscreants. Many of them sneak back across after being deported several times. The Mexican army, and illegal aliens have shot at and assaulted members of the Border Patrol. Another criminal is DRT. Don’t expect me to lose sleep.
