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.

Task force to monitor crime along the border


7:37 a.m. June 5, 2008

EL CENTRO: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is launching a task force targeting criminal organizations involved in cross-border crime in the Imperial Valley.

The group will be added to Border Enforcement Security Task Force operations established earlier along the U.S.-Mexico border. Task forces are in place in San Diego; Phoenix and Yuma, Ariz.; and Laredo, El Paso and Harlingen, Texas.

The new force will be made up of officers from federal, state, local and foreign law enforcement agencies, including U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Border Patrol, Drug Enforcement Administration, the FBI, the Bureau of Land Management and Mexico's Secretariat of Public Safety.
