Border Patrol Protection Boat On Rio Grande Fired On By Men In Mexico With Automatic Weapons


A US Border Patrol boat patrolling the Rio Grande was attacked by four Mexican gunmen with automatic weapons from the riverbank in Mexico firing more than 50 rounds. No one on board was injured according to CBP.

“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,” the CBP said.

They should have lit them up like the 4th of July, and then identified them. Surely shooting back when under fire is within the “rules of engagement.”
