The bridge at Progresso

I've been to this bridge, I visited Progreso and Nuevo Progreso last May.
Edwina P. Garza in the (Harlingen-Brownsville) Valley Morning Star writes:

… five Winter Texans said that on Feb. 13, they saw a group of armed men in military fatigues escort a blindfolded man from the Mexican side of the bridge to the U.S. side and place him on the guardrail before pushing him off. Among the witnesses was a South Dakota family that took two photographs of the incident and gave them to the Valley Morning Star.

I don't know what happened, but there were Mexican soldiers behind sandbag barricades on the side of the street about a block south of the bridge when I visited. They were friendly enough. But I wasn't some drunk smart mouthed college kid.
