Secure the border now means secure our helicopters from anti-aircraft fire? Apparently so.

Thankfully nobody on the helicopter was injured. Now, let’s go find out which side of the border the shots came from, shall we?

More from the AP:

A U.S. Border Patrol helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing in Texas after it was fired upon.

The incident happened about 5 p.m. Friday while the aircraft was patrolling the Rio Grande near the border city of Laredo.

Webb County Sheriff Martin Cuellar tells the Laredo Morning Times that out of five shots believed to have been fired at the helicopter, two hit their target.


There was no immediate word on whether the gunfire came from the Mexican side or the U.S. side.
