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.

The Mexican army arrested an armed squad believed to have been guarding a wounded man at a Juarez hospital, federal authorities said Wednesday.

The group was in two vehicles, both with Texas plates, outside Poliplaza Medica hospital where they were allegedly providing security for Victor Jesus Jimenez Soto, who is recovering from a gunshot wound, officials said.

Soldiers seized two AK-47s, an AR-15 rifle, a handgun and more than 17 kilos of marijuana in three packs. Arrested with Jimenez Soto were Veronica Jimenez Serrano, Benjamin Verdugo Villalobos and Alfonso Leyva Carrasco. They were all arrested on drug and firearm charges.
