Arm the employees of ICE while working in Mexico and if Mexico cannot agree to that, get them out and let the chips fall where they may.

Regardless of the agent's actions, "heroic" or otherwise, the U.S. has no business sending ANY ICE agents to Mexico. We're just asking for them to be killed.
he aint no hero

Why are you dubbing him a "hero"? Send him to Iraq to fight the war and give your life for that. Like so many of our brothers and sisters have. Only then will he be a hero by me. I agree with the other comment, Why do you send them over there your only asking for trouble dumbarses!!!!!!!

Strange, 2 ICE agents attacked by Zetas and this so called "hero" survives with only a wounded leg and no bad guys around.
I smell corruption.

Why were they so exposed? Driving 265 miles one way through hostile territory does not seem like a good idea. This attack is something that seems inevitable; an accident waiting to happen.

Maybe if these headhunting,illeal alien freeloaders would give us reason to say something good about them,maybe we would.

They know the risk of being over there, especially if they aren't permitted to be armed (which is highly probable due to Mexico's laws); however, I have not seen any reports stating that they were not armed. I could be wrong about any reports stating that they weren't armed, but the the probability is high that even if they were armed, they probably were outnumbered and their attackers probably had more firepower.

The diplomatic plates are a dead give away, and it is possible that their route was already known.

Exactly! It's liens too much as if this group already knew that they would be traveling that route; however, it is far from an accident. It is a premeditated and calculated move on the part of this cartel.

"Headhunting ILLEGAL alien freeloaders" doesn't apply to Mexican cartel members on their own turf. Hence, the "illegal" portion of your argument doesn't apply...unless you know that those ZETAs were in Mexico illegally.

Or is this just an opportunity to bash Hispanics in general?

I agree with you that many illegals come here and freeload off the rest of us. I am with you on the topic of getting them out. This agent however is an American of Hispanic descent. He works for a living and took a bullet while on the job. His situation is no different than a Police officer being shot on Duty or a Soldier being wounded oversees. Please accept the difference and show us the proper respect we have earned.

I heard it on the news, but there again one cannot believe everything they hear, even on the news.

If it is a deal between govts than I would have to say that we should pull all of those ICE agents out immediately. It's just way too dangerous not to be armed. Worse yet is they are driving around in vehicles with diplomatic plates, sitting ducks r' us.

I used to complain about that when I lived overseas, we had to have USA plates on our cars and then before we could get on the Kasern we had to have the bomb sniffing dogs and MP's literally tear apart our vehicles to see if someone may have planted a bomb. Not the warm and fuzzy I was looking for!

ICE agents and all diplomats have targets on them, and they should be pulled out of Mexico until the Mexican government can take control of the situation...which might not ever occur. There is far too much greed and corruption running rampant in Mexico, and many were in denial about it within the government & among the citizens. Once they decided to acknowledge it was indeed a problem, the situation had gotten far too out of control. Maybe they should learn from the Columbians in how to successfully deal with the drug cartels and make their cities safe again.

However, with the scores of murdered women still unresolved, I won't get my hopes up.
