Cross-Border Shootings, Incursions by Mexican Officials Common

Border Patrol Agent and National Border Patrol Council #3307 Vice President Chris Cabrera reported that Mexican officials commonly cross the U.S. border and that there are “a lot” of cross-border shootings on Tuesday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel.

“We have a lot of cross-border shooting as it is already. We’ve had multiple incursions from their military and their national police crossing into our areas, they’ve done so in the past, they’ve done so recently” he stated.

Cabrera did argue that sending National Guard troops to the border would “hinder our operations more than help it.”

He also criticized Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) for his comments that Border Patrol agents were greeting people escaping gun violence in Central America with guns in the United States, saying “we have a lot of criminals that are crossing. We’re having multiple repeat offenders, we’re having drug dealers, drug smugglers, we’re having a lot of bad people coming in, and unfortunately we live in a world where police forces need guns, and I think he just really doesn’t know what he is talking about.”
