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.

Border Patrol agents on Tuesday seized 1,105 pounds of marijuana found in 22 duffel bags in the sleeper cab of a tractor-trailer rig at the Interstate 10 checkpoint west of Las Cruces, officials said Wednesday.

The marijuana load was found in a search with a drug-sniffing dog. Truck driver Martin Garcia Murillo, 44, told agents he was a U.S. citizen, but it was later found that he was from Mexico and in the country illegally. He was booked into the Doña Ana County jail.
