Two U.S. ICE Agents Shot, 1 Killed In Mexico. The Latest Attacks On Americans In What's Becoming A Lawless Country [Video]

Video After The Jump

The violence in Mexico is starting to affect U.S. citizens as well.

Last week 2 high school students were shot and killed in Ciudad Juarez while at a car dealership. In March 2010 a couple associated with the U.S. consulate were also killed in Juarez. In October 2010 a couple was fired upon as they returned to the U.S. from a sightseeing trip along the U.S. border near Matamoros. David Hartley was killed, while his wife Tiffany, barely escaped with her life.

Now comes word that two U.S. ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) were ambushed yesterday (February 15) at what they thought was a security checkpoint 100 miles outside of Mexico City.

One was killed, while the other was wounded.

The attack marks the 1st time a U.S. agent was killed in the line of duty in Mexico since 1985, when a Drug Enforcement Administration officer was captured, tortured, and killed while on assignment there.

"ICE is working with the U.S. State Department, Mexican authorities and other U.S. law enforcement partners to investigate the shooting. Our thoughts and prayers are with our colleagues," ICE officials said in a statement.
