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.

CBP Officers Deliver Baby at El Paso Border Crossing

Tuesday, July 01, 2008

El Paso, Texas — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers deliver a baby at the Bridge of the Americas international border crossing early Tuesday morning.

On July 1, at about 3 a.m. a 23-year-old female El Paso legal permanent resident arrived at the port of entry. While waiting for admissibility status, the female advised CBP officers that she was experiencing child labor. The CBP officers took immediate action and contacted EMS. While waiting for EMS, CBP officers comforted the woman by placing her on the ground on top of a blanket. CBP officers assisted in the delivery of the infant. The baby boy was placed next to her mother until EMS arrived.

“This is not a first, CBP officers have delivered numerous babies in the past,” said Chief CBP Officer Rick Lopez.

EMS arrived at the border crossing and took over treatment. The mother and newly born infant were transported to a local hospital in El Paso.
