    U.S.-Mexico border reopens after 4 hurt in shootout

    SAN DIEGO – U.S. authorities shut down the nation's busiest border crossing for about four hours Tuesday afternoon after federal agents fired shots at three vans filled with illegal immigrants whose drivers tried to storm past inspectors, officials said.

    Three people were shot and injured in the vans crammed with dozens of illegal immigrants, authorities said, and one of the vans smashed into another vehicle as it tried to bypass border inspectors, injuring a fourth person.

    One person who was injured remained in critical condition Tuesday night, authorities said. The others were expected to recover. The 74 people who were inside the vans were taken into federal custody.

    San Diego police spokesman Lt. Kevin Rooney said the van drivers tried to storm past inspectors at the San Ysidro port of entry and enter the U.S. without stopping.

    Two U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and a Customs and Border Patrol agent fired shots across nine lines to try to stop the vans, he said. There was no return fire.

    “It was human smuggling, definitely,” ICE spokeswoman Lauren Mack said.

    The San Ysidro port of entry connects San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico. About 40,000 vehicles cross into the U.S. at the port each day, and it has 24 northbound lanes.

    Those lanes were closed after the 3:30 p.m. incident, causing a rush-hour traffic jam as drivers on the Tijuana side were turned back.

    Motorists were told to make their way through Tijuana's crowded streets to San Diego's only other border crossing at Otay Mesa, about five miles to the east.

    Eight northbound lanes were eventually reopened at about 7:30 p.m.

    Rooney said the three vans pulled into the same lane, and the first driver gave his license to a border agent.

    When the agent stepped back into the booth to run the license, all three vans drove quickly into the U.S. side.

    “They got caught in traffic, and the last one tried to back up. The other two drove wildly looking for an open space to drive through,” Rooney said. “That's when they encountered the three agents, who all ended up firing from different vantage points.”

    The San Diego Police Department's Homicide Unit will investigate the shooting.

    Illegal aliens practice non-violence and love everyone. All they want is acceptance ?That explains why I had to wash the blood off my front side walk ….Well, no, instead, despite all this fraternity of illegal immigrants , I see slaughter, bloodshed and a BUTTLOAD OF EUPHIMISMS. Just immigrate legally, dickwads. Oh, boo- hoo, pitty the poor poor Mexican, he can't do THAT because he can just sneak in and say, " I AM HISPANIC, SUCK MY DICK" and hide in a group of “HISPANICS”. It absolves them of all sins, they think, or perhaps they think we are stupid, I don’t know. And all those ethical qualms disappear in a cloud of racial accusations. Racism! Ever hear of that boy that cried " wolf'?

    There is only one solution, we have to get Mexicans fighting a civil war over which is better, soft or hard tacos.

    Unleash 'Operation Old El Paso'.

    Mexico is a failed nation, millions of refugees fleeing crime, corruption, and war in southern mexico.

    Shame we appease this failed government.

    Spanish, the Mexicans speak the language of the European conqueror and claim we stole the southwest, brilliant. Mexicans are racists, all the politicians and rich are of "pure" spanish blood, they despise the poor indians of mexico, thats why the indians must flee to the greatest nation of the world, uneducated indians of mexico get it but Marxis-Obama and his supporters do not.
