    Border Patrol Agent Killed in Southern Arizona

    TUCSON, Ariz. -- A U.S. Border Patrol agent was fatally shot after he encountered several suspects in southern Arizona, officials announced Wednesday.

    Agent Brian Terry was killed late Tuesday near Rio Rico, Ariz., according to a statement released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials.

    At least four suspects are in custody and another is still being pursued.

    "Our thoughts and prayers are with the Terry family for their tragic loss," CBP Commissioner Alan Bersin said in a statement. "Our commitment to Agent Terry and his family is that we will do everything possible to bring to justice those responsible for this despicable act."

    The FBI and the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office are investigating Terry's death.

    KOLD-TV in Tucson reports the incident occurred just after 11 p.m. Tuesday in the Peck Canyon area north of Nogales.

    Prior to Terry's death, the last fatal shooting of a Border Patrol agent was on July 23, 2009, when Robert Rosas, 30, was killed by unidentified assailants while responding to suspicious activity in a known smuggling corridor near Campo, Calif., CBP officials said.

    Southern Arizona should be turned into the largest minefield ever made. These illegals aren't even human and do not deserve a constitution or a president that defends them.

    Well, the one going on here is much less expensive. At least in some ways.

    I can hear the Obama admin say "drug cartels are the cartels of peace" and then proceed to screen old ladies crossing the border.

    About 140 inmates escape Mexican border prison

    From Associated Press
    December 17, 2010 7:46 PM EST

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — About 140 inmates escaped Friday from a state prison in the northern Mexico border city of Nuevo Laredo, across the border from Laredo, Texas.

    The federal Interior Department blamed the breakout on local authorities, saying they did not properly guard the facility.

    "The absence of effective methods of guarding and control by local authorities is deplorable, and it has caused frequent escapes from prisons that put the public at risk," the department said in a statement.

    It called on state authorities to clean up their prison and judicial systems by increased screening and vetting of corrections officers. In past cases, prison guards — often underpaid or under threat from gangs — have been implicated in prison escapes.

    Federal police were dispatched to patrol the area, and roadblocks were set up to search for escaped prisoners.

    The department did not mention the number of inmates involved, saying only that it was "a significant number." The federal Attorney General's Office said initial reports indicated 148 escaped, but local media quoted the Tamaulipas state public safety department as putting the number at 141, equivalent to about 10 percent of the prison's population.

    The jail break apparently occurred in the pre-dawn hours Friday.

    Some of the inmates were being held on drug and weapons charges. Tamaulipas has been plagued by a steady wave of violence tied to turf battles between the Gulf and Zetas drug gangs, but it was unclear whether members of those groups were among the escaped inmates.

    The jail break came on the same day that federal Public Safety Secretary Genaro Garcia Luna addressed a graduating class of new prison guards, underlining the urgent need to professionalize correctional forces.

    "We are making a historic effort to build a new prisons model, that will treat prison staff as efficient public servants," Garcia Luna said.

    The new guard recruitment programs, supported in part by the U.S. government, include increased training, screening and vetting of guards.

    Mexican teenager protected by the US constitution

    Mexican teenager killed by US Border Patrol agents had rights, court rules
    Federal court ruled that even though teen was on Mexican soil when he was shot, he was protected by US constitution

    A federal appeals court ruled Monday that a Mexican teenager killed by a Border Patrol agent was protected by the US constitution, even though the teen was on Mexican soil when he was shot.

    The ruling from the fifth US circuit court of appeals means the family of 15-year-old Sergio Adrian Hernandez Guereca can move forward with a civil lawsuit against the agent.

    "This recognizes human rights belong to everyone. Not just American citizens," or human beings standing on US soil, said Bob Hilliard, one of the lawyers representing the family.

    The original lawsuit was filed against the Border Patrol, the Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection agent Jesus Mesa and the US Department of Justice. But part of the ruling relieves the agent's supervisors and the agencies from responsibility.

    "The appellants (do not point to) any other evidence that would suggest that the supervisors were personally responsible for the alleged constitutional violation," the ruling says.

    Hilliard said the family will likely appeal that part of the ruling.

    Both the government and Mesa can also appeal the ruling. The Border Patrol said they would not comment on the matter as it opens the possibility of litigation. Mesa's attorney did not immediately respond to requests for comment from The Associated Press.

    Mesa shot Hernandez in 2010 near a border bridge between El Paso and Ciudad Juarez while trying to arrest immigrants who crossed illegally into the United States. Mesa said he was attacked by rock throwers. Border Patrol agents are allowed to shoot at rock throwers if they feel their lives or those in their custody are at risk.

    US District Judge David Briones found in 2011 that the family could not sue because the shooting's effects were "felt in Mexico." But the appeals court said that "territorial approach" would allow agents to establish "zones of lawlessness."

    It "would establish a perverse rule that would treat differently two individuals subject to the same conduct merely because one managed to cross into our territory," the appeals court ruling said. It also said that giving people standing on Mexican soil protection from "conscience shocking" actions by border agents, such as the shooting of Hernandez Guereca, is not a new policy. Immigrants who are inside the US, even those who are to be removed from the country, "are entitled to feel free of gross physical abuse by federal agents," it says.

    Extending that right to people injured across the border by US agents standing on US soil, would inform the officials that they are not allowed to arbitrarily inflict harm in this "new, but similar, context," the court said.

    "Today the fifth circuit helped ensure that CBP agents are held accountable for shocking and outrageous abuse, even when their victims aren't inside the US ... The fifth circuit clearly signaled that Border Patrol cannot operate with impunity," American Civil Liberties Union senior staff attorney Adriana Pinon said in a statement. The ACLU was not directly involved in the case, but filed a friend of the court brief.

    Fucking joke, what is happening to this country? So sad, RIP America. A border patrol agent can't defend himself from a little rat kid throwing rocks, what a joke. Have you ever been hit by a rock? That shit could easily kill you and yet our own government sides with an invader?
