According to a report today by Channel 5 in Mission, Texas, a Mexican military truck containing a number of armed men crossed the border from Mexico using the Anzalduas International Bridge into the United States. Mission is a small Texas city near McAllen.
The television station report shows the military incursion onto American soil using a frozen surveillance video of the truck and asserts that American authorities believe that the truck was packed with at least a dozen armed military. It further states that the truck continues on American soil until shortly before it reaches the customs checkpoint; at that point it made a U-turn to head back into Mexico.
I realized it was only a matter of time in this post-NAFTA world that Mexico would decide it might as well annex portions of this country. I didn’t realize though that that time had arrived. I’m now thinking that this is just another benefit to a free-trade world – that foreign nations would determine which parts of our country that they wanted and just take them over. I’m guessing China will soon decide which regions it wants.
