A Texas congressman says Mexican drug cartel members threatened to kill U.S. agents working on the American side of the border this month.

Rep. Michael McCaul said Thursday that a law enforcement bulletin was issued this month warning that Mexican gangsters were overheard plotting to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and Texas Rangers stationed along the border.

McCaul did not identify which cartels or what agency issued the bulletin.

The bulletin warned of a plot to shoot at the agents with AK-47 assault rifles from the Mexican side of the border into the U.S.

ICE agent Jaime Zapata was shot and killed, and agent Victor Aliva was wounded, in a roadside ambush in Mexico in February.

They're not alone in threatening US agents! BATFE and US Justice Department have walked guns across the border to old Mexico, guns which have been used to kill US agent(s) and Mexican citizens. All about it is here: http://sipseystreetirregulars.blogspot.com/

Time to really secure those borders!
