Wed, 01/16/2013 - 3:33pm

SIERRA VISTA — Two undocumented immigrants were apprehended by U.S.
Border Patrol agents south of Sierra Vista after crashing a rental
vehicle loaded with 300 pounds of marijuana. The incident occurred
shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday on Highway 92 at Kings Ranch Road in
Palominas, according to the Cochise County Sheriff's Office.

Two unidentified men in four door sedan failed to yield to Border
Patrol agents, finally crashing the vehicle on Kings Ranch Road.

The men fled the scene in the direction of a woman on the side of the
road who was checking her mail at the time, said Carol Capas,
spokeswoman for the sheriff's office.

As the men approached, the woman, fearing they would attempt to steal
her vehicle, removed her handgun from her vehicle and pointed it in
their direction, resulting in the men running in another direction.

The men were soon apprehended by Border Patrol agents.
The vehicle involved in the crash, a rental, was later reported
stolen by a woman on Keeling Road in Hereford, Capas said.

SAN LUIS, Ariz. -- Federal authorities say a Mexican man has been
arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle more than 45 pounds of
cocaine into southern Arizona.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers said Thursday that 36-
year-old Fernando Rivera Aispuro was taken into custody at the port
of entry in San Luis, Ariz. They say Aispuro is from San Luis, Mexico.

CBP officers referred Aispuro's truck for a secondary inspection
after a narcotics detection dog alerted them to the presence of drugs
in the back of the vehicle.

Officers reported finding 19 packages of cocaine hidden in tool
compartments, worth an estimated $495,000.

The drugs and vehicle were processed for seizure and Aispuro was
turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland
Security Investigations.

Authorities didn't immediately know if Aispuro has a lawyer.

Note: they continue to facilitate the cartel's drug and human
trafficking operation, including who knows how many children for
sexual exploitation.

Tucson border group says agent took blankets intended for crossers

Border Patrol removing blankets and food left for those in need

A Tucson-based immigrants' rights group says a hidden camera video it
posted on Youtube shows a Border Patrol agent removing clean blankets
and food intended for illegal border crossers in distress.

The 33-second video dated Jan. 8, shows an agent stopping by a clear
plastic bag next to four water jugs. The agent opens the bag and
looks inside but the video doesn't show its contents. He is then seen
walking away with the plastic bag on hand. Temperatures in the area
that day were between a low of about 30 degrees and a high of about
60 degrees. The timestamp on the video says 10:18 a.m.

The video was shot near Arivaca, about 12 miles north of the
international border, said Sarah Launius, a spokeswoman with No More

Humanitarian organizations, including No More Deaths, leave food,
water and blankets on desert trails often traveled by illegal border

"We've been using some cameras periodically to keep track of the type
of use in different areas where we place supplies," Launius said. "We
spend a lot of time on trails to figure out where people are going
and what are the needs."

Last year, another hidden camera video showed Border Patrol agents
vandalizing caches of life-saving water, according to the group. In
response to this incident, then-Sector Chief Rick Barlow sent a memo
to agents instructing them to respect humanitarian workers and
provisions, Launius said.

"We know that hypothermia can be equally dangerous as dying from heat
stroke in the summer. This month has been one of the most severe that
Arizona has ever had," said Norma Price, a medical adviser for the
organization, in a news release.

"There is no question, people are crossing in the desert and their
lives could be saved if they were given blankets and warm clothing,"
she added.
