Congressmen Highlight Mexican Commando Incursions Into US
Steve Watson / InfoWars
(May 15, 2008) — Two representatives have urged Congress to take action to address the worsening situation on the southern border which has been described by reporters and activist groups as “an all out war.”
Rep. Ted Poe, R-Humble, has urged the Congress to take action regarding the frequent incursions of military-style Mexican commandos into the US that has seen over 6000 deaths in the past two and a half years according to conservative estimates.
The Houston-area Republican told the House Foreign Affairs Committee that members of Mexico’s elite counter-narcotics teams, trained at Fort Benning, Ga., have defected and are now in the pay of drug cartels.
Poe highlighted the fact that the guerrilla-style commandos are regularly crossing the border into the U.S. and have been involved in violence and killings as far north as Dallas.
The San Francisco Chronicle has picked up the story:
He said the Department of Homeland Security had documented “over 250 incursions by suspected military forces” into the United States over the past decade.
“I was surprised to hear that the United States has trained Mexican forces and some of those have deserted and become the reason for these attacks,” Poe said.
Congressman Poe criticized the lack of oversight on current programs to assist law enforcement in Mexico and central America:
“It seems as though the United States has a history in some cases of giving support (to Mexico) and that support turns around and is used against the very people we’re trying to protect, in this case, us,” Poe said. “We have no assurance that the equipment we’re sending to Mexico won’t be turned over to the drug cartels and used against us.”
Another Congressman, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Austin, called border drug violence “an imminent security threat right on our doorstep” and compared the urgency of situation to that of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In March, award winning National Security and Pentagon reporter for the Washington Times, Sara A. Carter, detailed the national media blackout on the Mexican incursions and the border war:
“There’s a lot of people who don’t realize how serious the situation is on the southern border.” Ms. Carter told the Alex Jones show. “Even to the extent when sometimes some of our own government officials choose to ignore it, even though they know it’s going on.”
“It is a huge story. It is bigger than most of us even know, and people are afraid of covering the story. We hear reports but we don’t see in depth detail.” Carter said.
Aside from Carter herself it has been left entirely to the alternative media to expose the reality of the situation on the border.

Former DEA Agent:
Mexican Commandos Killing In South West US
To Protect Bush Drug Cartel
(June 9 2005) — Retired DEA Agent Celerino “Cele” Castillo III served for 12 years in the Drug Enforcement Administration where he built cases against organized drug rings in Manhattan, raided jungle cocaine labs in the amazon, conducted aerial eradication operations in Guatemala, and assembled and trained anti-narcotics units in several countries.
Cele appeared on the Alex Jones show and dropped the bombshell that los Zetas, Mexican drug commandos trained in the U.S. at the School of the Americas at Fort Benning, Georgia to be the elite “special forces” of the Mexican military are now murdering police and conducting hits all over the South West US.
This partially came out in the national media last week but the spin was that it was just a case of blowback and that these US trained commandos had come back to haunt their former handlers. The truth is that they are still working for the US government in protecting drug routes to keep the wheels of Wall Street oiled.
These commandos are working directly for the Bush drug cartel in carrying out hits on rival drug smugglers who aren’t paying their cut. Witnesses and innocent police, DEA and FBI agents are also being murdered.
Here is the partial transcript from the show.
Cele Castillo: “That same blueprint they used in Guatamala and in Vietnam they have now brought it to Iraq and the same Colonel who ran the death squads down in El Salvador Colonel James Steele is now running those commando unit death squads in Iraq. So basically we have the same individuals, same cell grups that were in Vietnam that came to central America and Miami and so forth and are now in Iraq and some of them are being trained here in south Texas. There’s warehouses down here we’re they’re training more Zetas individuals that work for the cartels.
Alex Jones: “Now for those that missed that, you have evidence as a former veteran, peace officer and then head DEA agent in Latin America and you live in south Texas, that down there they are training these los Zetas groups and again they’re now targeting rival cowboys that are not paying their cut, do you agree with that statement?”
Cele Castillo:: “Absolutely but not only that just recently last month we had a female US customs agent driving down the highway and a couple of individuals drove up to her and just shot the hell out of the car and she got hit on the ankle and they’re not gonna take any more prisoners. They’re now gonna target FBI agents, DEA agents and people that were able to get away from….”
Alex Jones:“And Bush has ordered the border patrol to stand down there in the Tuscon sector because, this was official, because it was cutting in on their drug profits.”
Cele Castillo: “Well exactly and now they’re planning to come to south Texas and they’re gonna do the same thing here in south Texas and there was a story just today in the paper which says border patrol agents say you know what we can’t stop these people from coming across the border and the reason that we can’t stop them is because our government is not letting us do it.”
Alex Jones: “Well I read in the Brownsville paper, the Dallas Moring News you name it that they’re conducting murders all over Texas and killing police officers but it’s a national secret Cele, it’s in regional papers….
Cele Castillo: “Well one of the most major things that people don’t realize that’s going on is a lot of these people getting murdered are informants for the DEA and FBI and basically people don’t wanna admit the fact or let the public know that these people are informants working for the government.”
Report: Armed Mexican Troops Invade US
Eyewitnesses: Under cover of aid, combat ready soldiers
roll into Texas, Congressman Ron Paul says
Mexican troops in US period is “illegal, unconstitutional”
Alex Jones & Paul Joseph Watson
(September 8, 2005) — Two separate credible sources known to Alex Jones have reported that armed combat ready Mexican troops have entered Texas.
The Associated Press reported today that unarmed Mexican troops were being escorted by the US army to help relief efforts for hurricane Katrina.
However, the report was only specific to one convoy. The convoys reported to Alex Jones are said to be fully armed with Heckler & Koch German assault rifles.
The first sighting occurred at 12:30 on Highway 183 traveling towards Austin. The eyewitness described at least ten vehicles, four jeeps (other witnesses described them as Humvees) and six combat trucks brimming with armed Mexican troops wearing body armor, helmets and rifles. The troops riding in the jeeps were wearing holstered hand guns.
The vehicles were not being escorted by the US army or any other government vehicles and the vehicles were festooned with insignia reading ‘Mexico MP’s’ and the Mexican flag.
The second sighting of a similar nature occurred north of Austin on I35 near Georgetown Texas.
Prison Planet contacted Congressman Ron Paul’s office whose district is in Texas and the Congressman’s response was, “any Mexican troops here period is illegal and unconstitutional.”
Another source known to Alex Jones called the Austin Police Department and they said that they knew about the armed troops. The police asked if the troops had threatened the caller. The caller said they threaten the sovereignty of the country and the police laughed and hung up.
DPS Spokeswoman Lisa Block was the only person to answer any questions on the issue and she said that the main convoy of 45 vehicles, that was escorted by the Us Army and Texas state police, arrived in San Antonio at around 4:30pm on Thursday at the San Antonio Air Force Base formerly known as Old Kelly, now known as Kelly USA.
Alex Jones stated that there were multiple convoys scheduled to enter Texas today. Block stated that she had no knowledge of that. Regardless of how many Mexican troops are here or whether they are indeed armed as witnesses have stated, there’s absolutely no need for them. Aid is literally cramming warehouses in Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida. The problem is that FEMA will not deliver it to the estimated 10,000 victims of Katrina, who have refused to leave New Orleans.
FEMA already stated three days ago that these people would not receive any food or water. Many of these residents are middle class homeowners who would not have their families broken up in the first days of the rescue as the authorities demanded or more often they refused to leave their beloved pets behind. A small percentage are opportunistic criminals who want to continue looting.
Subsequently Prison Planet contacted the Laredo border patrol station and asked the officer who answered the phone what his name was. He would only say that it was ‘Robbie’. We asked if the Mexican troops that entered the US today were armed and he said “of course they are, what’s the big deal.” We then asked for his superior and were transferred to deputy chief Bill Jenkins and asked him if any of the convoys crossing into the US from Nuervo Larado were armed and he, in an agitated tone, said, “negative, negative, negative.”
The bottom line is that we need answers and we need them now. We are in the process of contacting the Mexican consulate in Austin, FEMA and the FBI. Everyone else should contact them until we get some answers.
The amount of energy being expended in shepherding and handling the Mexican troops is greater than any aid they can render. We don’t need their help.
The very notion that these troops are entering Texas to provide aid directly contradicts the fact that Alex Jones personally visited Austin Convention Center and saw piles of food and clothes lined up for refugees.
In other areas, aid is desperately required because FEMA has been deliberately sabotaging relief efforts. The LA Times reported today that “scores of police and volunteer firefighters from around the nation, as well as trucks loaded with donated water, were even now being prevented from entering New Orleans while troops conduct house-to-house searches.”
FEMA has also been cutting communication lines. Sheriffs in several counties of New Orleans have set up armed guard patrols to prevent FEMA from further actions of sabotage.
FEMA has therefore intentionally created the climate for the justification of foreign troops entering the US.
Regarding the convoys, the Associated Press article stated,
“Army press office employee Francisco Aguilar said he did not have details of the convoy’s precise location. It originally was scheduled to arrive in Houston to provide food for evacuees, but apparently had been rerouted to Dallas.”
If the army does not know the location of the convoys or why they are heading for Dallas, beside the fact that they are armed, isn’t that an issue of national security?
The fact that the Mexican soldiers are armed reminds us of a July 2004 incident where Mexican soldiers interrupted the funeral in Mexico of a U.S. Marine killed in Iraq (pictured).
Mexican soldiers confronted US marines and blocked their path because the Marines were carrying two replica ceremonial rifles.
The Mexicans won’t allow Marines to carry toy guns in their country and yet have the audacity to cruise through Texas armed to the teeth with assault weapons and nothing is done.
Mexican troops have also been caught on numerous occasions firing on US border patrol agents and civilians.
This is part of a steady conditioning process to make Americans accept foreign troops. Alex Jones has attended numerous urban warfare drills where US Marines are made to train with foreign troops.
Scottish residents complained in September 2003 after armed Ukrainian soldiers under NATO set up checkpoints and pulled families out of their cars during an exercise.
Security agreements have been signed allowing foreign troops to enter the US and vice versa. This is part of the incremental push to use foreign troops on US soil to order US citizens around in times of emergency.
The US has today asked NATO to provide a bigger response in the relief effort, opening the doorway for many more foreign troops to enter the US.
Today’s Associated Press article is wrong in stating that this is the first time Mexican troops have entered the US since 1846. Alex Jones has personally attended urban warfare training drills across the country where Mexican troops have been present.
This is the only photo currently being carried by AP/Reuters showing the Mexican convoys. This is a convoy near Laredo, heading to San Antonio. it is important to make the distinction that some conveys such as this one are not armed but some, according to our eyewtinesses, are armed with assault rifles.
Why do the Mexican troops need guns? What message does that send? If the troops are only going to Dallas and San Antonio, and not New Orleans, then why do they need to be armed?
Our sources were alarmed and frightened to witness the movement of armed Mexican soldiers in America with one stating, “Alex, we are in trouble.”
Despite this, Reuters is currently running an article which claims that people are honking car horns, cheering and waving as the convoy makes its way along the border.
The convoys entered via the border city of Nuevo Laredo last night, an area that has seen violent running battles between Mexican police and the brutal los Zetas gang that has killed officers and kidnapped US citizens.
The town of Nuevo Laredo is basically under a state of siege, causing the US to close their consulate in the city on August 8th, after bazookas, grenades and machine guns bombarded nearby buildings. Gov. Janet Napolitano of Arizona declared a state of emergency and the death toll just in the last few months has reached 600 but the mainstream media is largely ignoring the story.
We are asking people to call the state police to interdict and determine if these forces are indeed armed and if their guns have ammunition or if their weapons are ceremonial (which is doubtful).
We have already tried calling the contact number in the AP story, the Governor’s office, the Pentagon and Northcom with absolutely no response. The AP article admits that the army does not know where the convoys are. It is important that we pinpoint the exact locations of these convoys and demand immediate disarmament of the Mexican soldiers.
Please spread this information far and wide. To all people in Texas or Louisiana, please try and get photos of the Mexican troops and e mail them to email@example.com.
