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.

Alleged drug trafficker nabbed in Mexico; will be deported to US

Associated Press - March 12, 2008 4:54 PM ET

MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexican authorities have captured a U.S. citizen alleged to be a top member of a major drug cartel and say they will send him back to the United States immediately.

Gustavo Rivera Martinez, reputed to be a top member of the Tijuana-based Arellano-Felix cartel, will be turned over to agents of the U.S. government, which wants him on drug charges.

Federal Public Safety Secretary Genaro Garcia Luna told a Mexico City news conference today that Rivera Martinez took over the cartel's operation after the arrest of Francisco Javier Arellano Felix.

Rivera Martinez has been a fugitive since 2002. The U.S. government has offered a$2 million reward for his capture.

Rivera Martinez was arrested last night in the state of Baja California Sur, along with three other suspects.
