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.

Kin's account of migrant's death conflicts, agent's lawyers contend

Lawyers for a Border Patrol agent on trial in the shooting death of an illegal immigrant tried Thursday to point out contradictions in eyewitness testimony from the dead man's brother.

Under cross-examination by the defense, Jorge Dominguez Rivera testified that he didn't know whether Agent Nicholas Corbett had hit Dominguez's brother with a gun butt or his hand just before the fatal shooting in January 2007.

Defense lawyer Sean Chapman was trying to show that Dominguez's testimony differed from what he told Cochise County sheriff's investigators a year earlier. At that time, Dominguez appeared to say his brother had been hit with the gun butt.
