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.

CBP Officers in Texas Nab Juvenile Wanted for Homicide

Thursday, April 03, 2008

Presidio, Texas – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers working at the Presidio port of entry apprehended a 15-year-old male being sought by law enforcement officers in Missouri in connection with a double homicide that occurred at a midtown Kansas City gas station the evening of April 19, 2007.

The apprehension was made at about 11 p.m. April 2 after a commercial bus arrived at the port of entry from neighboring Ojinaga, Chihuahua, Mexico. CBP officers were inspecting bus passengers when they encountered a young man who was not carrying any identification. CBP officers obtained his name and date of birth and then performed a query on the subject, which indicated that he was wanted on an active homicide warrant out of Kansas City. CBP officers spent several hours working with the Kansas City police department to confirm that the subject they had in custody was the same individual for the warrant. After confirming the subjec'ts identity, the 15-year-old was turned over to the Presidio Police Department and transported to the Presidio County Jail pending extradition to Kansas City.

"This apprehension was the direct result of CBP officers thoroughly inspecting all the passengers on the bus and working hard to determine the identity of those who apply for entry to the U.S.," said John Prewit, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Presidio Port Director. "Name queries and thorough inspections routinely result in fugitive apprehensions for CBP officers working at the Presidio port of entry and other international crossings. It is part of our mission to keep this country safe."
