You have to love when a pissant country like Mexico is taking potshots at the US (from the Guardian)
The Mexican government sent a diplomatic note to the United States on Tuesday protesting the fatal shooting of a Mexican immigrant by a U.S. Border Patrol agent.
The note, presented by the Mexican Embassy in Washington, relayed “the Mexican government's firm condemnation'' of the shooting and its “serious concern over the recurrence of this type of incident,'' according to a Foreign Relations Department news release.
The diplomatic note underscored Mexico's demand that the U.S. conduct “an exhaustive investigation'' and punish whoever is responsible, the release said.
Francisco Javier Dominguez-Rivera, 22, of Puebla, Mexico, was killed Friday in a confrontation with the unidentified agent north of the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona between Bisbee and Douglas. (take a look at the map at that area. Rather barren)
"Immigrant." I wonder what type Francisco was
A group of seven people were crossing the desert and the agent took six of them into custody without incident, authorities said.
But the agent and Dominguez-Rivera began fighting, authorities said. The agent, who believed his life was in danger, shot and killed the man, the Border Patrol said previously. An autopsy was scheduled Wednesday.
Of course, no where in the article is it specifically mentioned that Francisco was an illegal alien, however, if he was crossing the desert, I would have to say with complete confidence that he Did Not Belong In The United States!
This story was in the Guardian, a UK paper. How long till the US news outlets pick it up and complain not about Mexico sending all their unemployed populations into the USA, but at American's, Border Agents, and George Bush, call them all bigots and such?
It is time to shut down the border for real. Sign the petition to Secure The Borders.
