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.

MEXICO CITY – Mexico City's mayor said Tuesday his government was not intimidated by a bomb apparently intended for a police director, and pledged to forge ahead with the capital's battle against organized crime.

“If their aim was to intimidate, they are not going to succeed,” Mayor Marcelo Ebrard said at a public event. “There is a security program in place and we are going to keep moving ahead.”

Mexico City Attorney General Rodolfo Felix Cardenas on Monday announced that the target of the homemade bomb, which exploded two blocks from police headquarters last Friday, was a police official, whom he did not identify.
