The Nation

January 23, 1986

A U.S. judge in Tucson considered a motion to dismiss alien smuggling charges against 11 members of the sanctuary movement after it was disclosed that a key government witess had perjured himself by denying that he had been a paid government agent in another case. In addition, Salvadoran Miguel Angel Mejia testified that the witness Jesus Cruz, was the only person who helped him cross the border after he had been denied aid by the sanctuary movement. Several of the defendants are charged with having helped Mejia enter the country.
