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 in New Mexico Targeted as Border Violence Increases

Tuesday, June 17, 2008

Deming, N.M. – On Saturday, El Paso Sector Border Patrol agents discovered that they may have been the target of more acts of violence after discovering an apparent booby trap made of wire on a remote border road near Deming.

On June 14, agents assigned to the Deming Border Patrol Station received a call from a local rancher who informed them of a discovery she made of some wires stretched across a patch of dirt roadway. The wires had been pulled tight and set to a height that could have had dire consequences for agents or anyone riding on an all-terrain vehicle. The road is commonly used by narcotics traffickers as well as Border Patrol agents operating on ATV’s, horse patrol officers and agents in service vehicles. The two thin wires were set across the road and fastened to a border fence post, then wrapped around a mesquite bush in an attempt to conceal it.
