US Troops DISARMED by Mexican Soldiers in Texas

The incident occurred at an anomaly in the US border fence.

As if we needed any more proof that our southern border situation is worsening, a bizarre military clash between US forces and Mexican troops has now occurred in Texas.

With enormous, well organized caravans of would-be migrants flowing nonstop north from Central America, the United States border has been under tremendous strain.  US Customs and Border Patrol simply cannot keep up with the influx; a problem compounded by the democrats’ unwillingness to work with President Trump on several proposed border solutions.

Now, in an embarrassing and dangerous encounter just north of the border, US troops have found themselves being disarmed by their Mexican counterparts.

“On April 13, 2019, at approximately 2 p.m. CDT, five to six Mexican military personnel questioned two U.S. Army soldiers who were conducting border support operations in an unmarked (Customs and Border Protection) vehicle near the southwest border in the vicinity of Clint, Texas,” US Northern Command told CNN in a statement.

“The US soldiers were appropriately in US territory” during the encounter, the statement added.

That’s when things took a dramatic turn.

During the incident, the Mexican soldiers pointed their weapons at the US troops, removing a soldier’s sidearm and returning it to the unmarked US vehicle, the officials said.

The Mexican troops were armed with what appeared to be assault rifles, according to one official.<

Officials said that the US soldiers allowed the weapon to be taken “in an attempt to de-escalate a potential volatile situation.”

The confusion was due to an unusual placement of the US border fence, which was north of the US personnel at the time of the confrontation.

A bilingual US soldier was able to defuse the situation without any further escalation.
