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 camera spots marijuana suspects

July 22, 2008 - 12:14PM


Surveillance cameras used along the Mexico border did their job for the U.S. Border Patrol on Tuesday morning, when the technology helped agents nab 93 pounds of marijuana and apprehend three illegal immigrants.

The two unrelated busts happened early Tuesday morning near the West Main and Salinity Canal bridges near San Luis, Ariz., according to a Border Patrol news statement.

Communications personnel operating a surveillance camera near the border saw two illegal immigrants crossing the Colorado River. Agents tried to stop the two people, who ultimately left their marijuana behind and absconded back across the border, according to the statement.

Camera operators then noticed three subjects crossing the border in the same area. Those people were apprehended shortly after they crossed into the U.S.
