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.

Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement authorities have placed a hold on a woman who was driving a van that allegedly barreled through a stop sign and hit a school bus, killing four Minnesota school children.

The announcement came as Minnesota authorities confirmed the woman was identified as Olga Marina Franco, 24, from Guatemala. She first had given the name Alianiss Nunez Morales, and provided her age as 23, her home country Mexico.

The Lyon County attorney, Richard Maes, has charged the woman with four counts of criminal vehicular homicide, driving without a license and running a stop sign. But if and when those counts are resolved, she still faces custody, because of the paperwork filed by ICE to keep her behind bars, according to a report from Associated Press.

Federal officials confirm they have developed probable cause to believe she is an illegal alien, a status confirmed earlier by state officials.
