      Much concern in the US-Canadian border
      By Beth Duff-Brown and Pauline Arrillaga
      The Associated Press

      Nearly four years after the Sept. 11 terror attacks and after billions in security investment on both sides of this frontier stretching from Atlantic to Pacific, authorities and average folks are still jittery. Here's why:

      - At the edge of a sprawling raspberry field where Washington state meets British Columbia, a U.S. Border Patrol agent shakes his head at tire tracks that snake between rows of berries and over the international boundary, which here is a gravel ditch so puny a person could leap it.

      "They're long gone," says agent Candido Villalobos, who raced to the scene after a surveillance camera spotted the vehicle _ transporting contraband? Drug money? Something more sinister? Too late to know. "They beat us," Villalobos murmurs.


      Border Patrol launches national hiring campaign
      By Chris Strohm

      The Border Patrol launched a national recruiting campaign Friday, with plans to hire up to 2,100 new agents in the next 15 months.

      Most of the agents will be deployed to the nation's southern border, where the bulk of illegal immigration and drug smuggling occurs, Border Patrol Chief David Aguilar told Government Executive.

      "The activity levels that abound on the southern border is where we feel ... a trainee agent will get the best experience to fully round him or her out so that, as they progress within their career, they get an opportunity to go to the northern border [and] the coastal sectors that we operate," Aguilar said.


      Embracing Illegals
      Companies are getting hooked on the buying power of 11 million undocumented immigrants
      By Brian Grow, with Adrienne Carter and Roger O. Crockett in Chicago and Geri Smith in Mexico City
       Inez and Antonio Valenzuela are a marketer's dream. Young, upwardly mobile, and ready to spend on their growing family, the Los Angeles couple in many ways reflects the 42 million Hispanics in the U.S. Age 30 and 29, respectively, with two daughters, Esmeralda, 8, and Maria Luisa, 2 months, the duo puts in long hours, working 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., six days a week, at their bustling streetside taco trailer. From a small sidewalk stand less than two years ago, they built the business into a hot destination for hungry commuters. The Valenzuelas (not their real name) bring in revenue well above the U.S. household average of $43,000, making them a solidly middle-class family that any U.S. consumer-products company would love to reach.


      Crossing the Line — Immigration in Northwest Colorado
      Border is a blurring line
      By Autumn Phillips,

      There is no sign announcing Annunciation House. Unless a person knows differently, the old brick building in El Paso, Texas, almost looks abandoned.
      The windows are covered. All the doors have been blocked except for one, which remains locked. But knock on the door and it will open wide to the smells of Mexican cooking and laughing voices of people speaking dialects of Spanish ranging from Northern Mexico to the remote corners of Central America.
      In a residential neighborhood that is a 10-minute walk from the U.S. border, Annunciation House acts as a waystation for people who need to rest during their journeys from Mexico and other parts of Latin America to opportunities in the fields, hotels and restaurants to the north. The shelter runs on private donations from unnamed Catholic residents of El Paso.

      The Northern Border War's Southern Front, Or: The Rise of a New Cartel?
      Analysis provided by: Frontera NorteSur/New Mexico State University

      Government officials, law enforcement personnel, and citizens of all stripes are alarmed at a rising tide of violent outbreaks in the southern state of Guerrero. The July 6 slaying in Acapulco of Ruben Robles Catatlan, who served as state government secretary under ex-governor Ruben Figueroa Alcocer, was but the latest killing in a wave of gangland-style violence that some call unprecedented. Gunned down together with a bodyguard in front of the historic El Mirador Hotel, Robles was a longtime, prominent political figure in the Guerrero branch of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). Robles also was one of the alleged intellectual masterminds of the 1995 Aguas Blancas massacre of 17 unarmed farmers. Since the late 1980s, his name has come up in connection with the murders of opposition party militants and others.

      Tancredo considers presidential run to spotlight immigration issue
      NBC  - 9news.com

      Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-Colorado) says he will run for President in 2008 if that's what it will take to get a "legitimate" national discussion on the topic of immigration reform.

      The 4th-term Republican made the comments Friday from his home in Littleton where he is preparing to head to Iowa next week to speak with voters in one of the early Presidential Primary states.

      Tancredo has already visited New Hampshire and the Carolinas, all states with early Presidential Primaries. His trips are being coordinated by Bay Buchanan, sister and former campaign manager of former Presidential candidate Pat Buchanan.
