Mexican troops enter Texas with aid - Mexican troops enter Texas with aid: "Laden with humanitarian aid for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, a Mexican military unit crossed into U.S. territory today for the first time in more than 150 years.

Carrying nearly 200 unarmed soldiers, doctors, nurses and engineers, the convoy of dozens of trucks entered Texas at Laredo this morning with mobile kitchens, water treatment plants, bottled water, blankets and canned food for people displaced by Katrina.

Officials at the Mexican Consulate in Houston said the convoy was headed toward San Antonio. But it remained unclear where the trucks would ultimately end up.

'We are sending the help wherever the U.S. authorities request us to,' said Carlos Gonzalez, Mexico's consul general in Houston."
