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.

TUCSON - Opening statements and the first prosecution testimony kick off the trial Wednesday of an U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona charged in the shooting death of an illegal immigrant.

Eight men and five women jurors, including one alternate, were chosen Tuesday in Tucson, Ariz., to hear the case against agent Nicholas Corbett.

He is charged with second-degree murder, negligent homicide and manslaughter in the January 2007 death of Francisco Javier Dominguez Rivera, 22, of Puebla, Mexico.
