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.

Drop-house unit found 40 in six months, DPS says

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PHOENIX — The Arizona Department of Public Safety says a specialized unit has discovered 40 drop houses in the past six months, arresting 99 people suspected of human smuggling and nearly 500 possible illegal immigrants in the process.

The Illegal Immigration Prevention and Apprehension Co-op Team's chief mission is to target violent crimes associated with human smuggling and to dismantle the syndicates or rings behind those crimes.

Sgt. Chuck Herrera, a detective on the team, said smuggling suspects who are caught often are also held on suspicion of kidnapping, rape, extortion, assault and other serious crimes.
