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.

A man extradited from Mexico in connection with the fatal shooting of his ex-wife and serious injury of her son had been deported in 2003 and voluntarily returned to Mexico three times before that.

Ramon Bojorquez-Vasquez, 44, is being held in a Maricopa County jail on suspicion of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder. He was arrested in Hermosillo, Sonora, and returned to Phoenix Tuesday. Authorities say Bojorquez-Vasquez fled to Mexico after Elia Cruz Cabada, 49, was shot to death inside her Phoenix home on April 7, 2005. Her then-16-year-old son had also been shot, but survived.

A confidential source told authorities about Bojorquez-Vasquez's location in Mexico, and he was arrested in January 2007. Authorities detained him until he waived extradition and was turned over to U.S. marshals.
