CLOVERDALE, N.M. (AP) - A landowner of a large, historic ranch in New
Mexico's Bootheel and southeastern Arizona is in an ongoing battle
with smaller ranchers who say he often limits access to public lands
and makes environmental concerns a priority over ranching.

Bootheel ranchers say Seth Hadley, owner of the 500 square-mile
Diamond A Ranch, has tried to close off county roads and has placed
fences on public land cutting off access to hunters and ranchers.
On at least once occasion, a judge ordered Hadley to remove a padlock
from a gate on a county road.

Meanwhile, part of his ranch, once owned by William Randolph Hearst,
has been given to the Nature Conservancy to protect wildlife and
Hadley has earned praise from environmental groups.
A Diamond A Ranch spokeswoman declined to comment.

Freeze PGR warrant
Chihuahua has evidence for trial: Prosecutor
El Heraldo de Chihuahua

From the Editor

Chihuahua, Chih.-For 20 months, the Attorney General's Office has
frozen the arrest warrant against Border Patrol agent Jesus Meza Jr.,
who killed the Mexican teenager Sergio Adrian Hernandez Guereca.

Similarly, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in January 2011 filed a
request for provisional arrest for extradition against Border Patrol
agent, which was denied on Friday by the US on the basis of the
Department's decision of Justice not to file criminal charges.

The decision does not mean that the case against Border Patrol agent
in the Mexican courts has expired.

According to information from the Attorney General, on 29 August
2010, ie two months and 22 days after the murder, criminal case under
the 1260/2010 Guarantee Judge Chumacero Anabel ordered the arrest of

The EGF reported that since August 2010, the PGR has a whole folder
investigation into killing of Sergio Adrian Hernandez Guereca,
including evidence collected over two months of research, from which
was taken up body and shell casings that took his life, and until the
arrest warrant requested.

Local deputies, including Gabriel Flores went to stand in Congress to
issue a warrant for the President to that through the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs extradite the border patrol agent.

He said the June 7 marks two years of this crime and the person
responsible is still free and the Mexican Government has confined
itself to diplomatic requests and to commit to follow up the
investigation of the case: this only violates our sovereignty,
besides giving priority to the search for good relations with the
neighboring country.

Similarly, Governor Cesar Duarte Jaquez emphasized his extradition
will be sought to take responsibility for the crime that occurred in
national territory, as the teen's body was lying on the south side of
Rio Bravo.

The goal is to bring the element of the Border Patrol and trial in
Chihuahua, which applies the law because the claim of the Hernandez
family Güereca is genuine.

The director of the Special Prosecutor for Attention to Victims of
Crime of the Attorney General, Abraham Martinez Jesus Montoya said in
Chihuahua do exist sufficient evidence to indict, to prosecute him.

Meanwhile, the Attorney General's Office is obliged to bring any
items deemed necessary to national authorities for a better position
to allow the extradition.

Note: probably won't see this in U.S. media.

EU warning to police officers with narco threats

According to the San Diego Police, there are three methods commonly
used to ambush police by the Tijuana cartel against the authorities
of that city: the "blind spot", "stalking" and "complex ambush mobile."
Seek to avoid becoming victims of Tijuana cartel
Mexico City - New Day

After identifying the deadly tactics the Tijuana cartel used to
launch attacks against police forces, U.S. officials warned his
officers to avoid becoming victims of this criminal group.
The Police Department San Diego, California, analyzed the methods
used by the Arellano Felix organization to attack by ambushing
security forces operating in the border city.
Faced with a possible use of similar tactics on the north side of the
border against U.S. officials, the agency launched a series of
preventive measures that include, among others, keep the front seat
clear to crouch or walk out the door to an armed attack and use the
drive on which you travel as an offensive weapon.
The report titled "Tijuana Cartel of the Tactis: An Analysis of
Ambush Attacks on Law Enforcement Tijuana" (Tijuana Cartel Tactics:
An Analysis of ambushes against security forces in Tijuana), leaked a
few days ago for organizing hackers Anonymous, reveals that since
November 2010, the Coordination Center of San Diego Police officers
warned the collaboration of local gangs that operated as "shock
troops" for the Arellano Felix organization.
"An investigation by the Police Department San Diego (SDPD) yielded
credible information that drug trafficking organizations in Mexico,
working with street gangs in San Diego, is using sophisticated
techniques against surveillance and are willing to carry out armed
attacks to protect their drug shipments, "says the document.
The analysis ensures that the cartels have demonstrated complex
tactics, such as varying the speed of the vehicles used in ambushes,
coordinate changes in the lanes and rotate units traveling in a
convoy to identify shipments.
Most of these attacks, warns the report, reflected a high level of
training and planning, and usually were made in actions ranging from
a vehicle to convoys

How's border fundraising going?

PHOENIX - Last summer, an Arizona senator launched what some thought
was a crazy idea in the border battle. Steve Smith wants to raise
money through a website to build a fence on the Arizona border with

If good fences make good neighbors, then Arizona's relationship with
Mexico might be considered lacking. The 370-mile fence that runs
along the Arizona-Mexico border is solid in some places, sketchy in
others and non-existent in others.

Smith, a Republican representing Maricopa, believes a fence will stem
some of Arizona's illegal immigration problems.

"California, San Diego put in their fence. It worked. Yuma put in
their fence -- 97 percent of crossing stopped. It worked. Everything
just kept moving east. Now we have the Tucson sector eastern half of
Arizona. It's a nightmare -- the No. 1 cross-through area in the
country," Smith said.

Smith launched a website last July to raise funds to build a fence on
the Arizona border -- hoping to raise $50 million. After all, the
fence has been a hot topic. Even high-powered politicians used the
fence in their campaigns. It started out well, but nine months
later, it and a companion mail campaign have netted the project about

Still, Smith plans to start building very shortly south of Tucson.
"Primarily targeting the Tucson sector, the Douglas or Nogales area
is the most heavily-trafficked and least secure area now," Smith said.

On valley streets FOX discovered mixed reaction to moving forward
with the Arizona border fence project.

And we asked Smith -- what kind of fence will it be?
"Fifteen-foot high steel wire mesh -- a lot of what you see up there
now -- just 4-foot deep concrete-beaded – it's certainly not a white
picket fence," Smith said.

The federal government estimates it takes $15 million to build one
mile of fence on the U.S. border with Mexico.
The senator says his team can and will do it much cheaper -- despite
the doubters.
