Reacting to a call from U.S. Ambassador Tony Garza to “fully investigate” a military-style incursion into Texas in support of drug trafficker, Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Ernesto Derbez suggested U.S. soldiers or criminals disguised as Mexican troops may have actually been responsible.

“Members of the U.S. Army have helped protect people who were processing and transporting drugs,” Derbez told a news conference. “And just as that has happened … it is very probable that something like that could have happened, that in reality they (the uniformed men at the border) were members of some of their groups disguised as Mexican soldiers with Humvees.”

Texas law enforcement officials originally said Mexican soldiers were involved in Monday’s incident.

“There is a supposition here that this involved Mexican citizens, and that is absolutely incorrect,” Derbez said. “There would have to have been racial descriptions, and that would imply a certain element of racial discrimination on the part of the American sheriffs.”

Derbez said his diplomatic note to U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would demand that U.S. officials tone down their comments on Mexico’s security and immigration problems, and would request quick results of an investigation into the December shooting of a Mexican migrant.
