Deported Again and Again from the United States
(Guatemala) Thousands of Guatemalans are deported from the United States each year, but the situation in their villages and towns is not much better than it was when they first left, so it is estimated that about 95 percent try to return after the “American Dream” regardless of the life threatening risks they will face during their journey North. Guatemalan unemployment has tripled over the past 5 years.
Currently the Directorate General of Immigration has reported air deportations total of 25, 154 Guatemalans from the U.S. during the first ten months of this year.
During the air deportations from January to November 8 this year, there have been 22,431 men and 2,271 women, 410 have been male minors and 42 female minors returned to Guatemala.

Physicians ask Authorities to Protect Hospitals
(Ciudad Juarez) Juarez medical authorities have asked all three levels of government to guard public and private hospitals so that organized crime can’t break in to finish off their victims. The protection should be deployed even for the Red Cross paramedics that pick up the injured. The position of the doctors was raised at a meeting of the Ciudad Juarez Journalists Association who were asked to disseminate the information without distortion.

He Defended his Ranch to the Death
(Monterrey) The cartel demanded Don Alejo Garza Tamez surrender his property. The 77 year old man refused and barricaded himself in his farm, killing 4 of them and wounding 2 bombers.
When Mexican Marines arrived at the ranch outside of Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas, they saw a bleak scenario with the main house half destroyed by gunfire and grenades. Outside were four dead bodies and two unconscious wounded subjects. Inside there was only one body, Don Alejandro, owner and timber businessman. Inspection found weapons and ammunition at all the doors and windows. In the end, they found the man had designed his own defense strategy to fight alone. On Nov. 13, a group of men had told him he had 24 hours to deliver his property to them. With almost 8 decades of life, he told them he would not give them his property, and would be there waiting, he said flatly. He told his employees not to come to work the next day, and spent the night preparing. At 4am, they came. After a violent gunfight where the farmer seemed to be everywhere, they tried grenades against him. After several of them were killed and a quick reconnaissance, they chose to leave as they believed the military would soon arrive.
Shortly after the Marines arrived, and slowly, patiently reconstructed the events, they found just a rancher, a man who loved his property more than anything in the world and literally defended it to the death. In the last hunt of his life, Don Alejo surprised the group of assassins who wanted to impose the law of the jungle on his ranch. These Marines will never forget the scene: a 77 year old man swept away four gunmen before he died fighting as the best soldier, with dignity, honor and courage.
Rest in peace Don Alejo Garza Tamez.
