La Voz de la Frontera  (Mexico)  5/6/2011   
Narcos almost knocked down helicopter
International traffickers nearly caused a tragedy when an ultralight crossed at night into the Imperial Valley (California) and nearly collided with a helicopter of the U.S. Armed Forces manned by pilots and soldiers from England who were receiving military training. Customs and Border Protection authorities have been warning how dangerous and how persistent incursions are when used to cross drugs from Mexico.
This is a newer means to smuggle narcotics into the U.S., and the small planes rarely land. They cross the border at a remote location, carrying between 200 and 300 kilos of marijuana in packages that show a predetermined site where  an accomplice is waiting with his vehicle lights flashing. The pilot activates a drop of the drugs and after returns back to Mexican soil.
The Border Patrol has provided hundreds of thousands of barriers along the borders, checkpoints, operated by thousands of agents seeking to stop the smuggling of narcotics, but the Border Patrol counted that at least 228 of these types of incursions were conducted in 2010 and this year so far 71, with 30 of these in the Imperial Valley.
It should be mentioned that the Mexican Army has managed to catch five such aircraft in Mexicali, one because crashed in the Mexicali Valley.

HIDALGO  State Governor received letter from police explaining they do not have the tools to do the job asked of them. (Note:  In many areas, especially rural or remote locales, the police often don’t even have a handgun or ammunition for one if they do. Even more often, they do not have ballistic vests or helmets, a necessity when dealing with the level of fire power the cartels use daily.  Often those officers closer to the U.S. border may be the beneficiaries of nearby American departments who donate older vests and other tactical equipment and items.)

    In reply to “pf”

    If this were the reason then this administration would happily accept these “displaced persons from Mexico as they are 100% behing any amnesty and also the Dream Act which will be brought up again very soon after being defeated 6 times previously.
    I stand by my previous post that it is totally money driven within this country by unknowns with power…..who are profiting from the situation.

  5. pf Says:

    Here is something to “chew” on. There may very well be a reason that our Government will not address Mexico issues besides the obvious that has been discussed here (profiteering, corruption, money). There is a war going on in Mexico. If the US were to recognize this as a war and get more involved than they already are, this would open the door for millions to flood into our country and request political asylum. That would become a whole new bucket of worms. Am I correct in this assumption? I am sure there is someone out there with more knowledge on this subject than I.

    There is too much money involved that flows across the border each way along with drugs. The borders have not secured to me for obvious reasons that are as plain as the hand in front of your face. This has been big businness for years and has richly rewarded many people here in this country and within Mexico. If the identities of those receiving “tribute” in this country were to be known, it would be devestating…..

    Most everyone has their price if it is large enough!

    As for the Voice of the Frontier article about ultralight aircraft smuggling…
    time to contact the National Dusters Quads and Searchlights Association so the Border Patrol can learn how to use the M55 Quad 50 and the M42 Duster.

    Then the Voice of the Frontier can complain about the rain of free scrap metal on their side.

    Bet ultralight use across the border would tank.

  8. lyn Says:

    It is good to read that our government feels that those smuggled have consumer rights versus the smugglers.
