in Smuggling Network
Says Interior Dept. Required Water Station Maps be Distributed
|Glenn Spencer: "We're the compassionate ones. We have a technical
solution to this which is going to be implemented. And what the
reverend just said is that the Border Patrol would oppose us
for putting sensors and detectors in there that would allow them
to find these people, but then support a network that allows
this kind of human trafficking to go on which brings in four
billion dollars a year. Who is right in this instance?"

water station issue, O'odham are unfairly maligned
The Tohono O'odham Nation has been wronged,

Hoover, in his April 27 Guest Opinion "An inhumane policy,"
publicly condemned the nation for not following his plan for
placing migrant water stations on the nation's sovereign lands.
-- Then the Star accepted as fact Hoover's allegations and called
the nation's position "shameful" in its April 30 editorial
"Death by reservation."
