The Mexican military just made its biggest mistake ever.
Mexican troops patrolling the border initiated a confrontation with U.S. soldiers.
And this situation resulted in Mexico challenging the U.S. military with a threat that backfired in a major way.
The situation at the Southern border is a crisis.
Over 100,000 illegal aliens last month tried to invade the United States.
To help thwart this incursion, President Trump deployed troops to the border to play a support role so Customs and Border Patrol could concentrate on apprehending illegal aliens.
Open-borders advocates in both the United States and Mexico despised the move.
But some are taking their hatred to a frightening new level.
Reports recently surfaced about an incident where Mexican troops wandered into U.S. territory and ran into United States soldiers.
The Mexican troops pointed their weapons at the Americans, disarmed them, and proceeded to question them.
This incident took place in Clint, Texas.
The U.S. soldiers were sitting in an unmarked Customs and Border Patrol car when the Mexican soldiers swarmed their vehicle with guns drawn.
Although that area can sometimes have confusing definitions of what territory belongs to which country, there is no dispute that the U.S. troops were on Texas soil.
One American surrendered his pistol to try and de-escalate the situation, as their training dictates.
Americans were outraged when they learned of this news.
Even though the troops followed their training protocols and worked to lower the temperature during the confrontation, foreign troops cannot step foot on American soil and point their weapons at Americans.
That is a big “no no.”
And Trump supporters suspect this was no mistake on the part of the Mexican troops.
The U.S. government floated that idea with an anonymous USNORTHCOM official telling the Washington Examiner that, “That area of the border is kind of confusing.”
The NORTHCOM official continued, “It may have been difficult for them [Mexican forces] to know if they didn’t know the area as well or were new or something. I don’t think — it definitely wasn’t trying to overtake the U.S.”
The Mexican troops knew where they were and what they were doing.
Skeptical observers believe the Mexican military was probing to see how far they could push the envelope.
Open-borders forces inside Mexico want the free flow of illegal alien migrants into the United States.
That can only happen if there is no threat that the United States military will take any action to secure the border.
The Department of Homeland Security can request that troops perform law enforcement functions.
But with only acting Secretaries at both Homeland Security and the Defense Department, that order has yet to be given.
Do you think Homeland Security should request U.S. troops perform law enforcement functions on the border?
