AZBD Note: The AZBD SAR Team knows from first hand experience, when a CBP Blackhawk shows up its time to stop running because you’re going to be found.


Armored Blackhawk helicopters have arrived at the Texas border with Mexico in response to the recent attack on a U.S. helicopter from Mexican soil. As Breitbart Texas first reported, a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) helicopter was participating in stopping a well-organized drug trafficking effort that involved individuals on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. Shots were fired from the Mexican side on the CBP helicopter and it was forced down after sustaining damage.

Border Patrol agent Hector Garza spoke with Breitbart Texas on the matter in his role as president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) Local 2455. He stated, “If Breitbart Texas hadn’t reported on this very serious matter, the CBP would have likely kept it from the public. Texans and other Americans would not have known that people from the Mexican side of the border had tried to shoot down one of our aircraft and kill federal agents.”
