SWAT teams deploy in TX as cartel war hops border. Yet again.

Your gun-walked tax dollars at work?

Gunmen crossed the Rio Grande into the United States near a shootout between where the Mexican military and a group of gunmen was taking place.

Several area SWAT teams responded about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday to a ranch near Escobares, just across the U.S.-Mexico border, where a shootout broke out south of the Rio Grande.

The shootout reportedly began shortly after noon but details were not immediately available. Residents on the U.S. side reported seeing members of the U.S. Border Patrol and Starr County Sheriff’s Office securing the area near the border.

At least we can rest assured assured that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano are the case, vigorously distancing themselves from any possible knowledge about the raid or the response of their agencies.

Update: DERP. Headline originally said AZ, instead of TX. I blame the lack of coffee.
