Army and Police main causes of Disappearances in Mexico
Morelia – Revenge between members of criminal organizations are the prime cause of disappearances in Mexico and the army is most responsible for that, according to the President of the Human Rights Commission, Raul Plascencia Villanueva.
According to the National Ombudsman, Michoacán with Tamaulipas, Chihuahua, Durango, Sinaloa and Nuevo Leon are the states with the highest number of disappearances as stated by a national data bank that tracks this phenomenon.
In an interview, Plascencia referred to the case of 20 Michoacáns who disappeared in Acapulco and 18 of them were found dead. The data bank records personal information of those who are missing and disappeared to provide statistical data for families and authorities to work with to find the whereabouts of the disappeared people.
“Sadly, the numbers of disappeared people have been growing, not only in Michoacán, but also in Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, Chihuahua, Sinaloa and Durango, and it is important to track all this information in a data bank,” said Plascencia.

Hispanics are a quarter of United States youth
Washington, D.C. –NOTIMEX- Hispanics under the age of 20 comprise between 21.8 and 25 percent of the youth in the United States, a rise from 17 percent in the 2000 census in figures released yesterday.
For the first time the U.S. Census has projected the total population of the USA before the official release of the 2010 census figures.
The data is based on the number of births, deaths, number of enrollments in Medicare and the number of new immigrants as of April 1st of this year.
Besides the impact of being the largest minority in the USA, Hispanics also have the highest fertility rate and it is increasing rapidly.
The non-Hispanic youth population of the USA diminished by somewhere between 1.24 and 2.9 million youths under the age of 20 years.
The Census Bureau calculated a total population of the United States at between 305.6 and 312.7 millions, which represents a growth of 11.1 million people in the last decade. There were 281.4 million people registered in the 2000 census.

Murders of Police Official used arms stolen from other policemen
Chihuahua – The State Attorney General announced the arrest of the alleged murderers of a police official yesterday.
Governor Cesar Horacio Duarte Jaquez said that the perpetrators of the homicide used arms that belonged to members of the Ministerial Police who were ambushed recently. For that reason he believes that both crimes were committed by the same people.
Foreign Students Forced to Work in Nude Bars
Myrtle Beach, S.C. – Promised stable work and an opportunity to travel, some foreign students jump at the chance to go to the United States.
An investigation by the Associated Press found that some students work in nude bars and restaurants while others earn a dollar an hour or less. Some live in apartments so crowed that they have to sleep in shifts because there are not enough beds while others eat on the floor.
For 20 years, auditors have found that the program has problems, but the U.S. Department of State, which is in control of the program, now says it is instituting reforms but is not elaborating on these reforms to the J-1 program.
The Associated Press interviewed students, activists, local authorities, social service agencies, and reviewed thousands of pages of confidential interviews, police reports and court recordings.
The AP found, for example, that many students pay a middleman to find a job that never materializes or end up working as a servant with little or no pay. The recruiters charge the students exorbitant rents for dirty apartments that have little furniture and too few beds.
Frequently the students are threatened with deportation or eviction if they quit their jobs. Some have to steal food, toothpaste and underwear, according to the police.
“The majority of the students who participate (in the J-1 program) consider it valuable and worth the experience and return to their homes healthy and whole,” said the Department of State in an email to the Associated Press.
