US Border Patrol Detains 14 Mexican Soldiers Who Crossed Into US

"Guerrero" for Borderland Beat

Fourteen Mexican soldiers were detained by U.S. officials for several hours early on Saturday after they entered U.S. territory at El Paso, Texas, across the border from Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua.

The soldiers, who crossed the bridge between the cities in two military vehicles, said they didn’t realize they had entered the United States.

The newspaper El Heraldo Chihuahua reported they were from southern Mexico and had only recently arrived at the northern border.

Border agents secured weapons and equipment for “safety and processing,” said U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), adding that Mexican military leadership was contacted and arrived shortly after.

Thirteen of the soldiers were processed without incident, but one was given a civil penalty after CBP officers discovered a small quantity of marijuana in his possession.

The soldiers appeared to have been handcuffed according to Reuters. Their vehicles and weapons were returned to them when they were released.

The border crossing was closed for about two hours due to the incident, a witness said.

One witness, who asked not to be named, described the tense moments when border officials stopped the soldiers. “The CBP yelled at the soldiers to put their hands up and drop their weapons immediately.”

Involuntary border crossings by Mexican military forces have occurred in the past, the newspaper El Universal reported, but usually in areas where the border is not clearly marked, rather than on international bridges.

      Thanks for visiting and have a nice day.

    2. Yeah its old news if you live in Juarez or El Paso but most people here don't live around this area...
      I really don't think it should have been as big of a deal as it was... Just turn them around...maybe cause they were not from Haiti

    3. Soooooo Ricky I'm Dominican born and raised there. And don't get your Haitian comment. Elighten me if possible.
      Also the childish shit needs to stop. Some want to complaint about an article being a day old. Without knowing why it was published. Others in here act like kids cause i decide to give respect to some of the moderators ( like little jealous girls/boys ). And then you wonder what's wrong with cartels and the things they do. But i think everything is connected.

    4. 12:08 Ricky if it's old news then skip it stop being a crybaby.
      Da Rubio thanks for sticking to the article,

    5. @7:11 you clearly lack reading comprehension, no where in my post am I being a "crybaby" I stated a fact, I live in Juarez, it was really big news, I understand the majority that visit this site doesn't live on the border so I am actually OK with the article, relax dummy...
      Rubio, The Haitian comment was just a because the US had a huge influx of Haitin immigrats, just a bad joke...

    7. Damn Rubio hates Hatians, there human to dude. Be cool.

    8. 4:00 Mr.Rubio many people come to America, from many parts of the world. Some come illegally, some file for asylum, some wait years to be approved to enter USA. You too were once an imagrant, how did you make it to New York, not good to hate Hatians.

    9. 12:25 thats the best reply you can muster..I've been a follower and supporter of this site for over ten years... I've never had a bad thing to say about this site..

      Why you decided to go after my comment and not el pichón's shows how big of a dolt you are.

  4. We should have kept all those soldiers in prison for eight months, and abused them, like they did Andrew Tahmooressi when he accidentally crossed into Mexico with a gun in the back of his truck.
