PHOTOS: How Mexican Cartel Gunmen Drove Through U.S. Border Security — Twice

Written by  Cartel Chronicles

PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Coahuila — Police in this Mexican border state continue to hunt for two Los Zetas gunmen who escaped a battle by driving to Texas and back without U.S authorities stopping them.

PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Coahuila — Police in this Mexican border state continue to hunt for two Los Zetas gunmen who escaped a battle by driving to Texas and back without U.S authorities stopping them. Contrary to information released by Washington, the shooters remain at large.

The violence occured last week when two Los Zetas gunmen riding in a white Toyota Tundra with Mexican plates fought with Coahuila state cops in a high-speed chase and throughout this border city, injuring eight cops and causing multiple crashes, Breitbart Texas reported.

To avoid capture, the cartel gunmen made their way to one of the two international bridges that connect this border city with Eagle Pass, Texas. They rammed their way through various vehicles, turnstiles, fences, and other security measures set in place by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Breitbart Texas has been able to confirm that the gunmen were able to leave the area before any gunfire was exchanged.

Rather than stay in Texas, the gunmen made a short drive through some city streets in Eagle Pass and quickly drove back to Mexico. While U.S. law enforcement gathered at the #2 International Bridge to investigate the prior incident, the gunmen drove through International Bridge #1, a facility that was closed at the time and had minimal security.

The gunmen were able to ram a turnstile and fence to get back to Mexico, where they left the truck and managed to successfully flee on foot.

An initial statement provided to Breitbart Texas by U.S. Customs and Border Protection claimed that the gunmen were arrested by Mexican authorities. Breitbart Texas spoke with various law enforcement agencies in Coahuila who revealed that while the suspects have been identified, they remain at large. 

Editor’s Note: Breitbart Texas traveled to the Mexican States of Tamaulipas, Coahuila, and Nuevo León to recruit citizen journalists willing to risk their lives and expose the cartels silencing their communities.  The writers would face certain death at the hands of the various cartels that operate in those areas including the Gulf Cartel and Los Zetas if a pseudonym were not used. Breitbart Texas’ Cartel Chronicles are published in both English and in their original Spanish. This article was written by Coahuila’s “J.M. Martinez” and Breitbart Texas’ Ildefonso Ortiz.

Why can't we put a bounty on all Illegals??? Ir would be much cheaper than supporting and deporting them!!!

There needs to be permanently installed tire spikes in the pavement which can be deactivated manually by the border patrol to allow legal vehicles to enter the Country. I see these "one way" spikes at all of the car rental places at airports everywhere. The spikes point in only one direction and will stop you by puncturing ALL of your tires if you try to cross them in the wrong direction. They should be installed at EVERY border crossing and NOT lowered until OUR border agents have determined the car and the people in it are elligable to enter the United States.

Are you kidding me? There are way more airports than their are border crossings yet we have these devises at every major airport car rental place. Your remark does not show a very high level of smarts nor concern.

Well.......what do we really expect, the Obama crew, left things in such a mess, that when the Trump team came in, they had to ALL but start all over. Now with ALL of that said......the Trump team, had better start to show some work, on not just the border, but the whole mess, or else his time will be short - a single (4) yrs stint. He, was warned and advised that he had to start to "clean" out the "rats nests", but is does appear that he didn't, either understand just how bad it is/was or he didn't give a damm, but at ANY rate, his team has got to start to show something and it has got to be sooner, rather then later. "Yo" Mr. President, "do it or lose it", your going to have to get your hands dirty!
