In a new election-year immigration salvo, Texas Gov. George Bush Jr. criticized the Clinton Administration on Wednesday for redeploying 46 Border Patrol agents from Texas to a stretch of eastern San Diego county heavily transited by illegal immigrants. Mark Moody, a Border Patrol spokesman in San Diego, said the 46 Texas agents would join a group of 100 reinforcements brought in to patrol the east county area along with the equivalent of 100 California agents on overtime shifts.

When your back yard becomes the runway for a nightly parade of illegal migrants, frustration is understandable. Maybe even inevitable. But no level of anger justifies acting as judge, jury and executioner for a migrant who has done nothing more than cross the U.S.-Mexico border--and a couple of lawns. Yet that's exactly what happened in San Diego last week, according to police.

Lightning sparked a fast-spreading wildfire that had burned 11,200 acres of rugged terrain near the border of Riverside and San Diego counties by Thursday evening, destroying three research buildings, threatening a Boy Scout camp and prompting the evacuation of Chihuahua Valley residents. More than 1,100 firefighters, struggling all day, contained 10% of the fire, said Lora Lowes, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. No injuries were reported.

A Navy F-14A fighter jet, abandoned by its crew over downtown El Cajon, crashed upside-down into two hangars at a civilian airfield here Monday morning, seriously injuring three people on the ground and reducing a number of small airplanes and cars to scorched rubble. The pilots were attempting to return to their home base at Miramar Naval Air Station after developing mechanical trouble while over the Pacific on a routine training run, said Lt. David Wray, a Navy spokesman.

In many ways, Arsides Arevalo is like a lot of other undocumented immigrants attempting to enter the United States. Last month, he left his native El Salvador in search of work and some peace from the unrest of that war-ravaged nation, where much of his family remains. After a trip of more than 2,000 miles, he slipped into the United States from Tijuana. Within days, he was arrested by the U.S. Border Patrol in San Diego.
