On Wednesday, March 14, cnsnews.com reported that gun battles between Mexican military and Mexican drug traffickers caused U.S. authorities to shut down two international crossings in Texas. The two bridges form the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) port of entry in Eagle Pass (county seat of Maverick County) Texas, about 140 miles southwest of San Antonio.
