US Embassy: 2 ICE agents shot in Mexico

MEXICO CITY — A U.S. Embassy spokeswoman says two U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have been shot in Mexico.

The spokeswoman says the agents were attacked Tuesday afternoon while driving between Mexico City and the northern city of Monterrey.

There were no details yet on their condition.

The spokeswoman spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to speak publicly about the case.

Perla should go down and do a warm an fuzzy story on these poor misunderstood gangsters - after all, they are just trying to make a better life for themselves.

The agents were travelling in a sports utility vehicle when forced to a stop by suspected gangsters in other vehicles. The agents apparently were identifying themselves when the assailants opened fire with assault weapons.

"They were moving when they were cut off," said Alonso Pena, the recently retired deputy chief of the immigration agency, who was informed of the details of the attack. "I think we will see an unprecedented response by the United States if it turns out to be a cold blooded murder of a U.S. federal agent."
