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.

Border Patrol agents save diabetic migrant

Border Patrol agents on Tuesday rescued a diabetic illegal immigrant abandoned by his traveling partner because he couldn't keep up, an agency spokesman said.

The 40-year-old Mexican man was found unresponsive near an empty cattle tank southeast of Ak Chin on the Tohono O'odham Nation, Agent Mike Scioli said. Ak Chin is about 50 miles west of Tucson.

The man was taken to University Medical Center for treatment of hypothermia and problems related to the diabetes, Scioli said.

Agents found him after a five-hour air and ground search prompted by the report from the traveling partner, who was already in Border Patrol custody, Scioli said.
