Officials said Monday that Jeffrey Berrouet was taken into custody Saturday night at the San Ysidro Port of Entry.

A swarm of 14 earthquakes, the strongest a magnitude 3.7, struck just south of the Mexican border near Calexico on Thursday, but there were no reports of damage or injuries. Caltech seismologists put the epicenter of the quakes 16 miles southeast of Calexico, in an area that is often seismically active. Their depth was about four miles. The quakes started at 12:30 a.m. and continued until 3:35 p.m., with the 3.7 occurring at 10:03 a.m.

The conventions came and went. Neither the Democrats or Republicans mentioned the immigration problem. Every survey shows that all border states and ports of entry struggle with legal and illegal immigrants. We are obligated under the law to take certain immigrants. Why do we allow all their relatives to follow? The Mexican border is a joke. If a group is picked up running through traffic (your pictures), the police are not allowed to turn them over to the immigration authorities.
