News From the Border

Providing the news from a different front but from a war that we must win as well! I recognize the poverty and desperate conditions that many Latinos live in. We, as the USA, have a responsibility to do as much as we can to reach out to aid and assist spiritually with the Gospel and naturally with training, technology and resources. But poverty gives no one the right to break the laws of another sovereign nation.

2 killed in Mexico-U.S. border shooting

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico — Gunmen shot and killed two men Wednesday at a gas station steps away from an international bridge in the border town of Palomas, across from Columbus, N.M., police said.
Javier Perez, 41, and Adrian Juarez, 25, were getting gas when the assailants, some wearing ski masks and traveling in two cars, pulled up and opened fire on their pickup truck, said Cesar Ramirez, a spokesman for state prosecutors.
Ramirez said investigators had made no arrests and were still trying to determine a motive for the killings.
The border state of Chihuahua, where Palomas is located, has been plagued by drug violence as Mexico’s crackdown on its powerful cartels has stoked turf wars among traffickers that have been linked to hundreds of killings in the past two years.
