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.

(WOAI-San Antonio) - For decades, people who entered Texas illegally from Mexico and other countries have been caught, and deported. But starting Thursday, those who are unlucky enough to try to sneak in over a four mile stretch of the Rio Grande near Brownsville, the policy will change drastically, 1200 WOAI news has learned.

Under a new action called 'Operation Streamline,' those who are arrested for the federal crime of illegal entry will be arrested, fingerprinted, booked, tried, and sentenced to up to six months in jail. After they are released, they will be deported.

"Operation streamline is a zero tolerance prosecution initiative for any person arrested for illegally entering the United States," said Ricardo Rosas of the U.S. Border Patrol in the Rio Grande Valley sector. "Those individuals who we apprehend will be formally prosecuted."
