NORAD: U.S. jets intercept ultralight plane from Mexico

Two F-16 military fighter jets intercepted an ultralight aircraft that flew into Arizona from Mexico on Sunday and tracked it until the ultralight returned to Mexico, the North American Aerospace Defense Command said.

A statement by the NORAD command center in Colorado said the ultralight crossed into U.S. airspace just after 6 a.m. Arizona time (9 a.m. ET).

The F-16s were launched to intercept it, and they shadowed it for 30
minutes before the ultralight returned to Mexico, according to the NORAD
statement. No other details were immediately available.

    Indiginous – you are an idiot.

    Sure, in 30 years Mexicans will be the majority in the US. (I think it will take a lot longer than that, though. White Americans still far outnumber Hispanics.) But they will only do so because they are too damned stupid to stop spitting out babies which become adults who need jobs, housing and food. How do you think the U.S. government food stamps will be able to feed all of them?

    Mexicans have already ruined their own land. Why do you think they come to the U.S.? For jobs that they can't find in Mexico. Case in point: spitting out too many babies which become adults and need jobs!


    And by the way, dip, the U.S. kicked the crap out of Mexico and took California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas more than 150 years ago.


    If you want to take it back, c'mon. Americans are more than willing to fight Mexicans again. Just because Mexicans won one little battle in an entire war (Cinco de Mayo), doesn't mean they can win a war.

    WE WILL KICK THE CRAP OUT OF YOU AND YOU KNOW IT. That's why Mexicans think they'll take over the U.S. by screwing themselves silly producing more and more anchor babies (which the American taxpayer pays for, by the way...)

    Go ahead and try it. IF you succeed, remember what kind of country you will be taking over – yet another ruined country.

    If it were not for White Europeans coming to North America and laying down the law, you would not have electricity, motor vehicles, computers, modern irrigation systems that turn deserts green and productive and you would not have any JOBS!

    Now maybe you understand why we won't permit Hispanics coming here and screwing everything up. WE DON"T NEED YOU! BLAME YOUR PARENTS FOR BEING STUPID AND LISTENING TO THE DAMNED POPE!

    If the federal government won't do anything about it and the States rights get trampled when they try to do something about it, I say it's time for the American people, ARMED American people, to stand up for themselves and start kicking ass.

    We don't have to drive to the border to do so, either. We can begin right in our own home towns. When you begin seeing dead Hispancis lying in the streets, believe me, you Hispanics won't be able to get your bus tickets fast enough.

    Yeah, it'll be la Raza alright - The Race to the Mexican border to save your sorry asses from getting shot!

    My relatives came to North America in 1679, before the U.S. was the U.S. But don't call me an immigrant – I WAS BORN HERE! This is my land. I didn't come from somewhere else, so shut the hell up about everyone being immigrants.

    Indiginous – YOU'RE AN IDIOT!

    Unfortunately for the Native Americans, they did not have laws against illegal immigration that the Pilgrims disregarded when they came to America. In fact, they had few to no rules about private property at all. However, today, there are explicit laws with explicit penalties against illegal immigration. On a personal note, you need to get over this. As a black person, if I can get over slavery that occurred 150 years ago, I think you can get over something that began 500 years ago. And for the record, I didn't even have to get over it BECAUSE IT DIDNT AFFECT ME. Sound similar?

    I don’t want this land to go back to Mexico. Hell no! I just don’t want to be harassed if I ever end up in Arizona.

    @ bailoutsos- HATE is universal but not every nation claims to have Human Rights and runs around the rest of the world trying to impose them on others while our Citizens are ready to strip them off of other citizens for looking "illegal".

    For your info the U.S. paid Mexico for the lands of the southwest. About three quarters of a billion dollars was paid to the Mexican govt. in 1848/1853

    This is whole situation is not about race.....South America, Central America, Mexico and now the great melting pot (The United States of America) is turning brown .... its inevitable and its noT my agenda or anyone. LA RAZA, just wants hispanics to know their true history, but fail to realize that America will have its own history, It will be full of Mestizos.....not just native and spanish, but of asian and white, white and black...........America belongs to the colored!

    You may be Black, but you will not be stopped for being Black and asked for your African papers. We have a right to be in our land, we were here first and we are still here. Why should I get over it? They are still occupying us. They are still harrasing us just for being MEXICAN. We are not Hispanic, Hispanics are Spaniards from Europe. We have a right to be in land that we have settled for thousands of years.

    Do you realize you sound just like the very kind of person that the man was commenting about? Of course not! How do you ever expect the racism in this country to end when you did not agree with his comment? If you did want racism to end you would have clearly agreed with him just as I do. People like you that just make an excuse and state" it works both ways" are the problem!! It makes it never stop!! You should agree with him, and state yes I wish there were not so much rasicm, like I wish, you cant be against the very thing you just showed us you also do!!! If you want it to stop, you have to be involved in stopping it, and that means no more racist comments from you either!!! Or your just as guilty, and no one takes you serious! Please retry a different non racist approach.

    I hate to tell you, but the white man didn't steal anything from anyone. You see, it all started on July 16, 22435 B.C. That's when the Og tribe and the Zonk tribe got into a battle over a real nice cave. The Ogs lost and the Zonks lived in the cave. It's been that way ever since and it's going to be that way for a long long time. You fight for you home and your cave. You win or lose. That's not stealing.
