Where were our military jets? Why didn’t they scramble and “escort” the helicopter back to the border?
Lots of unanswered questions:

Mexican Helicopter Spotted in Starr County
FALCON HEIGHTS – A Mexican navy helicopter was seen doing surveillance in Starr County.
Residents of Falcon Heights, about 14 miles away from Roma, noticed a Mexican helicopter hovering over a home shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday night.
Witnesses say the helicopter hovered for about 15 minutes over a house where a known criminal used to live.
Zapata County Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez Jr. says, “They had armored individuals in the chopper, open ramp, very military looking, in style and preparation.”
CHANNEL 5 NEWS contacted nearly a dozen government agencies on this side of the border. The Federal Aviation Administration directed us towards Customs and Border Protection who would only say they knew about the incident and that the Falcon Bridge was not affected.
UPDATE: Cavmom has left us a link with a much higher quality photograph of the helicopter:Border Security, immigration, security
