U.S. Border Patrol Patrol Agents Came Under Heavy Fire From Mexico Side of the Rio Grande


A U.S. Border Patrol boat patrolling the Rio Grande River near Fronton, Texas, was fired on with automatic weapons from the Mexican side of the border riddling the boat with up to 50 bullet holes, the government reports.

“Agents saw four subjects with automatic weapons who shot over 50 rounds at them. The boat was hit several times but no one on board was injured,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection said on Friday.

According to the New York Post:

A US Border Patrol marine unit was attacked early Friday by gunmen who fired more than 50 rounds at the agents from the Mexican side of the Rio Grande, officials said.

None of the agents assigned to the Rio Grande City Station Marine Unit was injured while they were patrolling near Fronton, Texas, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a news release.

Two agents working in the Rio Grande Valley, who have to remain anonymous since they were not authorized to speak publicly, told Conservative Review that the Border Patrol was investigating reports of gunfire across from a large island on the river that is claimed by Mexico.

The boat hit was reportedly a 21 Foot RSDV Riverine Shallow Draft Vessel.

The bullet holes are clearly seen in the photos later released by the Border Patrol.

Meanwhile, our government policy prevents our agents from returning fire! Imagine being in a service where you can be shot down by machine guns by Mexican cartel members, and you aren’t even allowed to fight back!
