    Border Patrol: Agents bombarded with objects fire shots into Mexico

    NEAR MADERO — U.S. Border Patrol agents fired gunshots into Mexico upon "being bombarded with objects" during a boat patrol of the Rio Grande, authorities said.

    Border Patrol agents were patrolling the Rio Grande near the Chimney Park RV Resort near Madero about 8 a.m. Monday when an undisclosed number of people began throwing objects at the boat, local agency spokesman Agent Joe Treviño said.

    "They were being bombarded with objects," he said of the agents.

    Agents responded by firing gunshots at the people on the south side of the river, Treviño said.

    Authorities refused to disclose how many agents were involved, how many people were throwing objects at the agents and what types of objects were being thrown.

    "All that remains under investigation," Treviño said.

    No injuries were reported. Treviño said it is Border Patrol's policy to not fire warning shots when agents fear for their safety.

    "We do not fire warning shots," he said. "We shoot because we fear for our safety and we're trying to remove the threat."

    I'm betting 10-1 that even tho warning shots aren't authorized these agents were probably not aiming to hit anybody but threatening them with shooting in close proximity

    Border Patrol. Alone, in isolated area, arresting 20 people at once. One of which is most likely a smuggler. Frequently have a bounty on your head by drug cartels. My hat is off to them.

    My little brother is a BP Agent, it's a crazy job. He absolutely loves it!

    He took a load of 150lbs. of Canabis off the streets the other night.

    Man that would be a scary job. I'm glad they aren't being ripped apart by the media for wildly firing their weapons at a group of undocumented workers.

    I guess the mexicans were mad.
    Janet Napolitano had assured them they would have no problems.

    I'm surprised that anyone would want the BP job as it doesn't seem like the agents are very well supported by admin...the patients are running the asylum.

    Unfortunately, you probably should have added "yet" to your post.

    Texas must be a little busier than where he is in AZ.

    Or maybe they try more shipments through your neck of the woods because they think it will be easier to get through where they have roads.

    Everything he's caught is coming through on foot, including the people.

    Our guys in Canada seize an average of 1500 guns from the 3% of the cargo they search.

    I've been watching the BP show on tv and that is one dangerous job. I'd rather work the inner city than out in the wide, wide open catching illegal, good, bad and dangerous escaping felon immigrants to America. Backup is too few and too far away. Plus, if TSHTF, you answer to the federal government. Too scary for me.
    May we never forget those in uniform who protect us night and day in lands far away. And those in all wars who paid the supreme sacrifice in defense of our country. May God Bless our Troops and First Responders.
