Officials: Border Patrol Under Heavy Fire from Mexican Cartels Near Texas

Border Patrol agents came under heavy fire from the Mexican side of the border Friday night, Fox News reports.

Authorities believe .50-caliber rounds were fired at the U.S. side of the riverbank near Rincon Peninsula across from Reynosa, Mexico. Sources told Fox News that the gunfire likely came from Mexican drug cartels.

“We don’t have any armor that can stop a .50-caliber round, so our Border Patrol agents had to take cover when the rounds were richocheting around them,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas said.

“When the shooting stopped, about 40 to 50 people came out on the U.S. side and turned themselves in. So clearly the rounds were being fired to suppress every effort to stop anybody intervening with anyone or anything coming across,” Gohmert added. “We have no idea what or how many or whom came across with the other illegal immigrants.”

The shooting comes at a time when the U.S. is in the midst of an immigration crisis involving unaccompanied children from Central America.
