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.

National Guard Soldiers Stop Illegal Entry Attempt in Texas

Friday, March 07, 2008

Laredo, Texas – Texas National Guard Soldiers assigned to the Laredo sector as part of Operation Jump Start foiled an attempt by three people to illegally enter the United States on Thursday.

The soldiers responded to reports of suspicious activity near the Rio Grande River in Laredo. They observed three people walk out of the brush along the riverbank and get into a vehicle that drove up to meet them. As the vehicle drove away, the soldiers followed it at a safe distance. After the vehicle traveled a short way, the driver noticed that the soldiers were following behind. Without warning, all four occupants jumped out of the vehicle while it was still in motion.

The soldiers were able to detain all of the subjects until Border Patrol agents arrived to the scene.

A passerby was able to stop the vehicle before it ran off the roadway.
