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.

Drugs 'tied to children's legs'

The Press Association

March 13, 2008

A Mexican woman has been charged with drug smuggling after 15 kilos of cocaine were allegedly found strapped to the legs of two children at Heathrow airport, HM Revenue & Customs have said.

Elisa Vazquez Sanchez, 40, was arrested after the drugs, with an estimated street value of 675,000, were discovered during a search on Tuesday.

Customs officers at Heathrow's Terminal 4 carried out the search after Sanchez and the children arrived on a British Airways flight from Mexico City around lunchtime.

Bob Gaiger, HM Revenue & Customs spokesman at Heathrow, said: 'We never cease to be amazed at the lengths to which some people will go to hide drugs from us when they pass through our controls.'
