Arsonist Illegals "Burning Out" US Border Security Agents
Unarmed patrols attacked by Mexicans setting fire to observation posts

Illegal alien arsonists from Mexico are setting fire to security observation posts in Arizona and attacking Border Patrol Agents by throwing flaming grapefruit sized rocks, firebombs and Molotov cocktails at them.
The Washington Times is reporting that U.S. Border Patrol agents seeking to secure the nation's border in some of the country's most pristine national forests are being targeted by illegal aliens, who are using intentionally set fires to burn agents out of observation posts and patrol routes.
According to the Times, firefighters in the Coronado National Forest in Arizona have to be accompanied by armed police and authorities admit smugglers of aliens and drugs have walked through the middle of active firefighting operations.
At least five fires were set below a Border Patrol observation post during the operation in an effort to burn the agents out, according to a Forest Service report. The fires were extinguished, and no one was arrested.
The fires correspond to a dramatic rise in assaults against Border Patrol agents -- up more than 100 percent over last year.
A Forest Service supervisor told a House Appropriations subcommittee last month that the law-enforcement personnel have been assaulted, threatened with weapons and shot at, and their vehicles have been rammed by cross-border violators. The Senate however continues to push for total blanket amnesty while offering empty promises to secure the border, which the President has bizarrely stated will be funded by raising $4.4bn in immediate additional funding from fines collected from illegals caught entering the US.
In other words the problem itself is being touted as the solution!
The Times also states that other blazes also have been set, including two this month near the San Luis, Ariz., port of entry as the result of Molotov cocktails -- one of which barely missed a Border Patrol agent. These events were barely mentioned in the media however.
Border patrol agents, who are not legally allowed to defend themselves with force if attacked, are regularly being attacked by illegal aliens with grapefruit-size rocks wrapped in rags, dipped in gasoline and set on fire, according to the Forest Service report.
The Yuma Sun carried a June 4th report which highlights the extent and seriousness of the literal war that is going on at the border. In this short report the following attacks are detailed:
The first incident occurred at 1:20 a.m. about a half-mile east of the port, when agents encountered a group of five suspected illegal immigrants, who turned around and headed back to Mexico when they saw the agents. Once across the border, they began throwing rocks at the agents, who withdrew to a safe distance and contacted Mexican authorities, according to a Border Patrol news release.
Ten minutes later, an agent saw a Molotov cocktail being thrown from Mexico over the international boundary fence about a mile west of the port of entry. It landed about 30 yards from the agent's truck and burned out. Then, several people in Mexico threw rocks directly at the agent, who drove to a safe location behind the secondary fence and contacted Mexican authorities, the release said.
At 3 a.m., an agent observed the fire burning in the agricultural fields west of San Luis and near County 23rd Street. The San Luis Fire Department was called and extinguished the fire, which was limited to a wheat field. Such instances of arson on the border are not new. Last July a 180-acre brush fire in San Diego north of the Riverside County line near the U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint forced the closure of Interstate 15 in both directions.
In the same month California declared a state of emergency for southern parts of the state as brush fires engulfed more than 16,000 hectares of mountain scrub land 125 miles (200 kilometers) east of Los Angeles.
