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.

Less than a week after a wounded Mexican police chief was discharged from Thomason Hospital and the heightened security that came with his stay was ceased, another Mexican gunshot-wound victim was admitted to the county hospital Monday.

Two men were shot to death in a street ambush Monday morning in Palomas, across the border from Columbus, N.M., and two other men were wounded and transported to a U.S. hospital for treatment, Chihuahua state police said. Javier Ortega Miranda, "El Boby," and Adan Perez Fuentes, "El Oscuro," were killed while sitting inside a Cadillac Escalade. Hector Fuentes Leyva and Ricardo Regalado were wounded.

Violence in Juárez and in Palomas has been mounting this year, possibly due to a power struggle between drug traffickers, police and experts said.
