      Death Rate Increases on US- Mexican Border
      More than half a million arrested
       
      GRANMA
      December 8, 2009
       
      TUCSON, December 7.— The number of immigrants without documents killed on the border  between Mexico and the US has increased in 2009. This year some 417 people have died compared with 386 in the previous fiscal year, according to a report by EFE.
       
      Arizona was the region with the greatest number of deaths, with 208., followed by the Rio Grande Valley  with 71 and Laredo with 56.
       
      Mark L. Qualia, spokesman for the Border Patrol in, Washington, attributes the increase in fatalities to the ever more dangerous tactics used by the traffickers in undocumented people to import their cargo, as well as the extreme temperatures and drownings in the Rio Bravo, Texas.
       
      The federal agent called the program of zero tolerance implemented in various zones of the border, including Arizona, as "a success." There, with the Steamline program, a daily average of eighty immigrants without papers is sentenced in a Federal court in Tucson for entering the United States illegally.
       
      From October 1st, 2008, to September 30th, 2009, a total of 556,041 people without documents were arrested in the US along the 670 miles of border with Mexico.  (SE)
