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.

Eight illegals, one a minor, arrested at Bullhead City bar

PHOENIX — Eight illegal immigrants were arrested early Sunday morning at a raucous Bullhead City bar found to be serving alcohol to minors.

Police in the western Arizona city have received numerous complaints about La Conchita bar in the past six months and have recently investigated a severe beating there and an incident in which a patron pointed a gun at two employees, department spokeswoman Emily Montague said Sunday.

Montague said the department began surveillance on the bar two weeks ago after a large group of people in the parking lot threw glass beer bottles at a marked patrol car.

The department and other Arizona law enforcement agencies conducted a liquor inspection La Conchita at about 12 a.m. Sunday and found that the bar owner was serving liquor to minors. One person in the bar was just 17 years old.

Authorities also arrested nine people, eight of whom were illegal immigrants, on liquor violations. The illegal immigrants, who included the 17-year-old boy, were turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
