The WASHINGTON POST And The Mexican Army
The Washington Post story In A Crowded Immigration Court, Seven Minutes To Decide A Family’s Future [By Eli Saslow February 2, 2014], discussed by Federale below, an anti-enforcement story, is illustrated, for some reason, with this picture:
A small group from the Mexican Army can be seen through the fence that stands onthe United States/Mexico border on Thursday, February 28, 2013, in Naco, Ariz.
But it reminds me that the Post, the paper of record of America's enemies since approximately VJ Day, is far more likely to attack the Border Patrol, National Guard, Minutemen, or Ranch Rescue than they are to mention any incursions by the actual Mexican Army.
I can prove this:

Before you start calling “War of the Worlds”-esque foul, don’t worry, we are not going to war with our neighbors to the south (though that would probably distract us from the debt ceiling debate).
However, the Mexican army did invade the U.S. Friday morning.
It seems a convoy of humvees with 33 soldiers aboard turned down a bridge over the Rio Grande in pursuit of someone, though the reasons for the pursuit were not known. The bridge, though, had no u-turn option before Mexico became the United States. So invade — or drive across the bridge into — the U.S., they did.
The Homeland Security Newswire reports that the vehicles turned around and headed home without incident. And so ended the great siege of 2011.
(My sympathies are with the Mexican army. If you’ve ever tried to cross a Washington bridge into Virginia and gotten lost on that maze of roundabouts and lane changes, you know how they probably feel right about now.)
"My sympathies are with the Mexican army", she says. No kidding! (You should see the picture that goes with this story.) It's fascinating to compare this with the uncontrolled savagery of WaPo rhetoric, linked above, towards the Minutemen or Ranch Rescue.
