Lawlessness Along the Mexican Border: 2 Americans Murdered and Border Agent Busted For Drugs

By Allan Lengel

There’s no shortage of lawlessness along the Mexican border. Two Americans were murdered and a Border Patrol agent was busted for drugs in two separate incidents.

On Monday, two Americans who work for the San Diego-based West Coast Beverage Maintenance were shot and killed inside their company pickup truck as they waited to cross the border back into the U.S. at the San Ysidro, Calif. border, the Associated Press reported.

AP reported that witnesses told authorities that a gun approached the line of vehicles and started firing into the vehicle. The men were identified as Kevin Romero, 28, and Sergio Salcido, 25, who was a professional martial arts fighter.

And on Tuesday, in Yuma, Az., Border Patrol agents busted one of their own agents, who was found with bundles of marijuana in his marked Border Patrol vehicle, station KRGV reported.
