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.

Deportation snag hits for drug cartel suspect


6:39 a.m. March 14, 2008

Mexican authorities said yesterday that the deportation of a U.S. citizen alleged to be a top member of the Tijuana-based Arellano Félix drug cartel was in limbo after the man said he also has Mexican citizenship.

Under Mexican law, Mexican citizens cannot be deported to another country.

Gustavo Rivera Martínez, 46, was captured Tuesday night in Baja California Sur. He was indicted on U.S. drug charges in 2002 in San Diego.

Foreign governments that wish to try a Mexican citizen must submit an extradition request, and the process can take months or even years.
