WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)– Over the past decade more than 500 Armed Mexican troops and police have strayed across the U.S. border which at times has led to standoffs with border control agents, according to the Department of Homeland Security. These revelations compound the problem on the border as illegal immigrants continue to flood into the U.S.

According to Homeland Security numbers, there have been 300 incursions by Mexican police or troops since Jan. 1, 2004. The Mexicans were armed in slightly more than half of those incidents, totaling 525 people. There was a verbal or physical altercation between U.S. authorities and the Mexicans in 81 instances — totaling 320 Mexican police or troops.

The revelations come as U.S. officials are trying to secure the release of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who has been held by Mexican authorities since the beginning of April, when he drove through an official port of entry into Mexico while carrying firearms.

For its part, the White House was accused of stoking mixed messages when it hosted 10 of the young adult illegal immigrants, who call themselves Dreamers, at an event Tuesday. They are in the U.S. under Mr. Obama's "deferred action" policy, which has granted more than 500,000 of them amnesty from deportation and has given them work permits. — Source
