Mexico’s Gun Battles Spilling into America

There is a reason you don’t see U.S. media or intellectuals who promote illegal immigration every relocate to this area on the U.S./Mexico border

A Starr County community said they are tired of gunfire spilling over from Mexico.

Border Patrol reported shots fired on Friday morning. At around 8:30 a.m., neighbors in Refugio, a small community by Rio Grande City, said a dead-end street was full of Border Patrol agents and Department of Public Safety officials.

Resident Rene Garza said his community has learned to live with all the violence.

Garza said he grew up in the border community. “Before we wouldn’t see shootings,” he said. “Now, if you stand here at night, you will hear shootings. It’s normal.”

Garza said many of his neighbors won’t talk about the illegal activity, because they fear retaliation. He said he’s tired of looking the other way.

“It was around eight this morning, I heard it was from the other side,” Garza said about the shots he heard. “The army on the other side was shooting someone, and they crossed over.”
