At this point, it is too early to say exactly what the motivation was behind this Mexican law enforcement helicopter crossing into U.S. air space without permission. It is even less clear why they would fire on a marked border patrol vehicle. I’m not one for jumping to conclusions, as such I’ll wait for the B.P to complete their investigations. However, we do know that the Mexican government has apologized for the mishap. I’m not sure what is going on here, but let’s sit tight and see what comes up in the next day or two.
Next time though, if a Mexican law enforcement chopper decides to fire on us, I say we make some rubble in the Arizona desert.
