Screw Mexico. What have they done with the billions already given to them to fight the " drug war"? Time to spend the money here State side on border enforcement, security and tracking down all the Illegals living here and shipping them back home where they belong. Why do I have to fund a pretend war being waged by the most corrupt Country on the planet? When neither their Government or Citizens cares to stand up for their democracy? I am over this poor Mexico stuff.

I am surprised that "Big Sis" Napolitano has not issued an apology to Calderon and all of Mexico for our incursion into their Country. Big Sis will say, whatever those agents done, it was wrong for them to be there and the United States was wrong and we apologize.
Well "Big Sis" and BIG EARS Odumbo! It is time you get out of Dodge because you are beyond way over your head!
Calerdon comes to our Country and Odumbo, you allow him to address OUR Congress and let him rant and rave to OUR Representatives and dictate to us what the United States needs to do in enforcing laws and treating the Mexicans fairly and equally!
Well, Felipe este Calderon! You too Big Sis and Odumbo!
It is time we wage a war of our own on Mexico and the drug trade. And for our bleeding hearts of a Mayor, Council and County Commissioners, tough luck and go hug a tree or kiss a squirrel because we are tired of you saying also that we shouldn't have a fence/barrier or other obstacles for the Mexicans that committ crimes against OUR COUNTRY, OUR NATION and above all else the PEOPLE THAT PROTECT US!! The Federal Agents of all ranks and file of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA!
But unfortunately, the will of the people will not be heard and the Agent that died will not receive proper justice ....... especially if it is left to the Mexican government.

To the Agent's family that passed away in this tragic incident, we remember you in thoughts and prayers. May your loved one be in peace now with our God Father Almighty.
To the Agent that was wounded, may your loved one heal rapidly and without further incident so that his life continues with thoughts and prayers for his speedy recovery.
To OUR NATION!! The United States of America!
God bless America and all that are here and keep us safe from incursions domestic and abroad.

Irony at it's worst, We give Mejico millions of $ to fight organized crime, but the cartels have Infiltrated all agencies and levels of government in Mejco. Basically we are paying some of this money to the cartels through the Mexican govt.

This is not right. Stop aiding the drug cartels. We all know who runs that government and it isn't Calderon. Why is our stupid Government still giving our money away to a corrupt government? Let Calderon figure it out without Americans help, and take back his citizens who are here illegally!

You got it right, Deming. All those millions from that BS Merida Initiative, just goes to fatten the pockets of the Mexican rich, politicians, policia, military and to build more mansions for the cartels, buy more SUV's and guns. The Mexican Government has already told the U.S. "we will take your money, but we will not tell you where it goes or how it is spent." An open-ended slush fund, with the U.S. continuing to add money to the "pot", apparently not having any clue that most of it goes to the cartels. Thats how Obama and Napolitano keep this war going, by financing it.

I'm sure that Agent Zapata's family and all the people that wear guns and badges on this border appreciate these kind sentiments. It's people like you that understand this. Our government, Obama, Napolitano and Bersin remain completely clueless. All will be apologizing to Mexico for this "incident".
