On Tuesday U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was shot and killed after encountering several suspects "in a canyon west of Interstate 19 in Santa Cruz County," AZ just north of Nogales which long has been used by criminals to smuggle drugs and aliens from Mexico as reported by Bob Richardson for Fox 11:
Some of the suspects are in custody, but an intensive search was underway Wednesday morning for at least one other suspect. * * * T.J. Bonner, the leader of a union representing Border Patrol agents, told the Associated Press on Wednesdaythat Terry was with three other agents in a remote area looking for the bandits, who target illegal immigrants for robbery.
No word yet on whether the Obama Administration intends on backing away from earlier outrageous statements that there is no border spillover violence. Last March U.S. Dep't of Homeland Security spokesman Matt Chandler stated "that the Obama administration is not seeing evidence of spillover violence" as then reported by Peggy Fikac and Steward M. Powell for the Houston Chronicle.
Meanwhile, as the Mexican drug cartels generate revenue of up to $50 billion a year from their well-entrenched operations in at least 270 locales throughout the United States, the Obama Administration continues to target fat kids as the most compelling threat to national security as reported by Mike Allen for Politico.
Obama fiddled while America burned.
