Mexican Soldiers hold US Border Patrol Agent at Gunpoint...in the United States

Via Gateway Pundit, the logical end of an official policy of "looking the other way" and appeasement as our laws are blatantly violated:
Local 2544 of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) said on its Web page. "They are never held accountable, and the United States government will undoubtedly brush this off as another case of 'Oh well, they didn't know they were in the United States.'

The Tucson Sector Border Patrol agent was held at gunpoint by the Mexican military on Sunday night south of Ajo. (2544)

Members of the Mexican military crossed into Arizona on Sunday night and held a US Border Guard at gunpoint.
The Washington Times reported:

A U.S. Border Patrol agent was held at gunpoint Sunday night by members of the Mexican military who had crossed the border into Arizona, but the soldiers returned to Mexico without incident when backup agents responded to assist.

Agents assigned to the Border Patrol station at Ajo, Ariz., said the Mexican soldiers crossed the international border in an isolated area about 100 miles southwest of Tucson and pointed rifles at the agent, who was not identified.

It was unclear what the soldiers were doing in the United States, but U.S. law enforcement authorities have long said that current and former Mexican military personnel have been hired to protect drug and migrant smugglers.

"Unfortunately, this sort of behavior by Mexican military personnel has been going on for years," union Local 2544 of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) said on its Web page. "They are never held accountable, and the United States government will undoubtedly brush this off as another case of 'Oh well, they didn't know they were in the United States.'

Newsmax has more on the incident.
This is a disgrace; did we not fight (and win) a bloody WAR with Mexico for sovereignity over the border states?

No matter how you may feel about immigrants, it is never right to have laws on the books if you aren't going to enforce them. And to allow incursions into the United States by a foreign military force??

I say send in the Marines; this is Pancho Villa revisited.
