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.

MEXICO CITY - Five federal police and a suspected hit man were killed in a shootout Tuesday as authorities surrounded a house in Culiacan, home to the Sinaloa drug cartel.

Four other federal police were hospitalized. Police took several suspected cartel members into custody, according to a federal police official who wasn't authorized to give his name.

At least three banners threatening 21 local police officers by name were hung in Chihuahua over the weekend.
