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.

El Paso continued its slide into the top 30 worst cities for auto thefts last year though other large cities in the region did much worse, according to recently released rankings by the National Insurance Crime Bureau.

El Paso was ranked No. 30 - compared with No. 51 in 2006 and No. 81 in 2005 - despite a decline in the number of vehicle thefts last year. Auto-theft investigators pointed out that larger decreases in thefts in other cities may have caused El Paso to move up in the listing.

El Paso police said there are links between auto theft rings in Albuquerque and the El Paso-Juárez area and that police have intercepted several vehicles stolen in Albuquerque brought south to be taken into Mexico.
