As the number of deportations under President Obama approaches 2 million people and immigration reform lags under Republican obstruction, undocumented immigrants are fighting back through acts of civil disobedience. Hundreds have gathered at the U.S.-Mexico border this week to support a group of undocumented youths and families seeking re-entry into the United States.
The US Border Patrol has handed down new guidelines for use of deadly force after its agents killed 19 people in 67 shooting incidents between 2010-2012… Why did they fear for their safety? Because they put themselves deliberately in that position, according to a report commissioned by the CBP and written by law enforcement experts.
Did you know that Cochise County and even Tucson is a land with a different interpretation of the Bill of Rights than the rest of the United States?
Within 100 miles of the border, the federal government has assumed extraordinary power to search and seize individuals without warrants, or probable cause.

Several sources report that Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie was most likely killed by a gun from a fellow agent. NBC and several sources report that “accidental gunfire from another agent who responded to the same scene, state and federal officials told NBC News on Friday. The conclusion is based on an analysis of the ballistics, the lack of evidence of other criminals in the area at the time, and other factors, the sources said.”
Mexican troops captured the suspected killers of Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie, within hours of the fatal shooting, according to Mexican law enforcement officials and the Reuters News Agency. The two suspects were captured in Agua Prieta, in an operation conducted by the Mexican Army. Rumors surrounding this arrest, indicate that high level communications between Mexico and United States may involve talks about both this killing and the many deaths of Mexican nationals by Border Patrol agents along the border
Two Border Patrol Agents were shot in a gun battle east of Naco, Arizona in the early morning. At approximately 1:30 AM, the agents engaged in a shoot out, during a foot patrol. One died of injuries, while the surviving agent was airlifted to Tucson. A third agent was uninjured. Border Patrol Agent Nicolas Ivie, age 30, was killed at the scene. The three agents were patrolling a trail when two were shot approximately seven miles east of Bisbee, in a region with low hills and desert terrain.
President Barack Obama signed the Brian Terry Memorial Act, which will rename the Border Patrol Station in the Bisbee area in honor of the slain agent.
Brian Terry was murdered over a year ago, with an assault rifle that was part of the infamous “Fast and Furious” gunwalking cases, where ATF and FBI agents documented sales, buyers and surveillance that allowed arms to be smuggled into Mexico.
