Two ICE Agents Shot In Mexico, One Dies

February 15, 2011  | 

Two U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents traveling in Mexico were shot Tuesday in an apparent assault near the northern Mexico city of San Luis Potosi, reports the Houston Chronicle.

The agents were travelling in a sports-utility vehicle, when gangsters in other vehicles stopped them. The agents were apparently identifying themselves when they were fired upon.

The names of the agents were not immediately divulged until their families could be notified.

Tuesday's attack is the first killing of a U.S. agent in the line of duty in Mexico since the 1985 torture murder of Drug Enforcement Agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena by drug traffickers in Guadalajara.

It was only a matter of time; lets start worrying about the threats right on our borders and less on those halfway around the world!

The threat on our border is directly linked to drug trafficing. I was a Coast Guard Tactical Officer and we all knew that we were fighting "narcoterrorists", the rest of the military had no idea that we were fighting world war 3 against islamists that are bent on world domination in cooperation with organized crime. This war needs to be seen for what it really is and fought on all fronts.

While I am sorry for the officers and their families, what about the hundreds of US Citizens that are killed every year here by "Mexican Nationals" ?

Jose M. @ 2/15/2011 10:39 PM

Prayers to the family and loved ones of these agents. Borders exist no more and this is a cancer that if left untreated is going to kill us. Any word as to what these agents were doing in that part of mexico?

JYF @ 2/16/2011 8:21 AM

My prayers are with the agents and their families. Peace be with the agent who passed away. Remember, protecting this Country involves fighting on all fronts. Do not minimize the agents' efforts and while some might say they were half way around the world, others would say they were where the US interests are and at our next-door neighbor’s home.

This is the kind of story that makes people not want to go into law inforcement. It's really sad when people take an oath to protetct this country and can't because of vermon

All the boder state should be aware, this is going to get worse before it gets better. The over seas exstreamest is already awre that they can infiltrate The Unitied States thru the Mexican border anywhere they want to, and can blend right in with Meican population. Who really knows who did this? Was it the Mexican Drug Cartels or Alqauda, or Both working together??? Only time will tell.
