    CUFFED KIDS DRIVE BORDER PATROL CAR OVER BORDER

    MEXICANS DETAINED ON DRUG SUSPICIONS ESCAPE IN U.S. AGENT'S VEHICLE

    Updated: 11:28 p.m. ET Sept 26, 2007

    MONTERREY, Mexico - Three Mexican minors detained in California on suspicion of smuggling drugs stole a U.S. Border Patrol car while still wearing handcuffs and drove it back across the border to Mexico.

    Police in the Mexican border city of Mexicali said on Tuesday the three boys had been driving a pickup truck on a remote Californian highway when a Border Patrol agent stopped them.

    Suspicious they were carrying marijuana, he handcuffed them and put them in his patrol car while he searched their truck.

    "As the agent was doing his search, he left the vehicle running and the keys in the ignition, so one of the lads, still wearing handcuffs, grabbed the steering wheel and they headed back to Mexico," a police spokesman said.

    The Border Patrol, which plays cat and mouse around the clock with illegal Mexican migrants and drug traffickers, confirmed the vehicle was stolen in Southern California on Sunday and driven over the border near Mexicali.

    Mexican police used a helicopter to locate the patrol vehicle in a remote agricultural area near the border.

    I've lost all respect for you two clowns. Would you still be laughing and cheering if the people who died or had their lives destroyed at the hands of these drug dealers were someone you knew? I guess anytime a shtbag kangaroo does something criminal you both will be cheering. Hopfully it will be to you next time. We'll all cheer then. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    davdah,

    As for me, my laugh was over the stupidity of the agent. Number one is that these drug dealers needed to be arrested, incarcerated and deported. They were doing something illegal to begin with (same as Americans and others from all over the world involved in drugs); secondly, the agent really made a gross mistake. They're both at fault. And if I'm not mistaken, once an officer has an individual in his custody the individual is under his supervision to not endanger anyone else. I don't want to discuss whether it's a legal/illegal immigrant issue. I'm not going to disucss a hypothetical situation such as if innocent people were killed because they weren't and that isn't the core issue in this article.

    Speaking for myself and most likely iperson as well, we wouldn't be laughing over anyone being injured or killed. We're only laughing about the agent leaving them in the car with the engine running. My goodness, what if this occurred every day? Maybe we should send in the Boy Scouts to do their job if our border patrol is becoming this inept in their daily job performance. If this continues we might very well hear of deaths involved. What can you expect from drug dealers and border agents who've reached their level of incompetence?

    Well, skip the detention center, processing, court arrival date, deportation date - JUST MAKE A RUN FOR THE BORDER JOYRIDING IN ICE'S VEHICLE!!!!!

    I personally find this side-splitting hilarious!!! I'm still laughing!!! I can't help it!!!

    davdah, try to look at it for what it is. Incompetent border agent and kids determined to <STRIKE>jump</STRIKE> drive back across the border. This agent not only has egg on his face - he has the whole omelet.

    Davdah, I think it was the irony involved in this story that caused them to laugh - nothing to it. You have to admit it doesn't present a very positive view of our border control. I don't think any disrepect was meant.

    As far as the ICE raids, do you honestly support this activity? There has to be a better way to enforce our immigration laws. Raiding workplaces, herding people into vans like cattle - leaving their children stranded, abandoned - very dehumanizing, imo.

    A border fence 16 feet high and 'aesthetically pleasing'

    Feds reveal most descriptive details for a border wall, triggering another uproar in deep South Texas

    By Juan Castillo

    Monday, October 01, 2007

    For the past year, South Texas officials and residents have seethed over federal plans to build a wall along the Rio Grande and the U.S. border with Mexico in 2008. They also complained that federal officials were keeping locals in the dark about exactly where the fencing would go and its design.

    Last week, the government removed the veil of uncertainty, disclosing the most detailed descriptions to date about the fence's design, proposed locations, construction schedule and potential environmental impact.

    According to documents posted in the Federal Register, the fence would be at least 16 feet high and 3 to 6 feet underground, "aesthetically pleasing," semitransparent and capable of withstanding cutting or penetration " as well as the crash of a 10,000-pound vehicle (about the size of an armored Humvee) traveling 40 mph. It would be built in 21 segments totaling 70 miles in length between Roma and Brownsville.

    If federal officials approve the plan, construction of the barrier could begin next spring and continue through 2008.

    Building fences means building roads, lighting and other infrastructure, too. That requires clearing 60-foot-wide swaths of land and affecting more than 500 acres during construction, mostly along levees maintained by the International Boundary and Water Commission in the Rio Grande flood plain. However, some portions will encroach on private lands and might also enter environmentally sensitive and federally protected terrain, according to the plans.

    Opponents who live and work in one of illegal immigration's busiest corridors have reacted with a mix of anger, frustration and a stiffened resolve to fight the fence.

    Brownsville Mayor Patricio Ahumada Jr. said Wednesday that the city is considering filing a lawsuit to block the construction.

    "We're opposed to a fence as a community," said Ahumada, adding that city officials will meet Tuesday with attorneys who specialize in environmental law.

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and U.S. Customs and Border Protection released the maps of the proposed fence locations and other documents as they began an environmental impact study that will allow public comment through mid-October. Most fence segments will be near ports of entry and cities such as McAllen, Brownsville, Harlingen and Rio Grande City.

    Critics concede that there is a need for tightened border security but contend that fencing isn't nearly as effective as more officers and more technology, such as sensors and cameras. Moreover, they say a border fence will harm the economy, quash property rights and cut off farmers and ranchers from the lifeblood of the Rio Grande, as well as send an unfriendly message to their neighbors in Mexico. The county is Texas' biggest trading partner.

    They also fear that a fence will destroy vast habitat and wildlife, which the federal government has spent decades and millions of dollars preserving. Tens of thousands of riverfront acres are protected, feeding a growing and lucrative ecotourism industry.

    Nancy Brown, a public outreach specialist with the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge near Alamo, said she remained hopeful that ongoing talks with customs and border protection officials will yield fence design and placements that are wildlife-friendly.

    "We're biologists, and it's our job to protect wildlife," Brown said. "Putting in a pedestrian fence that is 16 feet high and wiping out 60 feet of brush, yes, that could be harmful. Is it going to be? We can't say for sure yet."

    In 2006, Congress approved fencing along 700 miles of the border with Mexico, and President Bush signed the bill into law. Only 370 miles will be actual fence " the rest will be vehicle barriers and a ''virtual'' fence of agents, sensors, cameras and other technology.

    "For the first time in the history of our country, we have the national political will to secure our nation's borders, and with that, we are working toward providing our agents on the front line with the tools they need to accomplish their mission," said Michael Friel of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

    Critics acknowledge that their opposition puts them at odds with a congressional mandate to secure the southern border. But some charge that the fight against illegal immigration is caught up in concerns about the threat of terrorism, resulting in a border fence idea that is an ineffective response to both.

    "This is a horrible reaction by interior America and their legislators," Ahumada said. "They want to see a fence. Well, put a freaking fence in their back yard. Why should we pay the price because they're overreacting?"

    Amid the clamor of opposition, supporters of a fence are relatively quiet, giving at least the appearance that they are greatly outnumbered in the Valley.

    Joe and Sharon Metz, who farm on about 1,100 riverfront acres near the tiny community of Abram, said they and their neighbors overwhelmingly welcome a fence.

    They are fed up, they said, with illegal immigrants darting through their neighborhoods and their yards at all hours of the night. "It just gets really old," Joe Metz said.

    Let's see... 'a border fence 16 feet high'? ... is no match to 'an alien's ladder 17 feet high'... what a waste of federal funds and international prestige! RN
