Calls for troops echoes previous pushes
McALLEN,
Texas
(AP) — When Texas Gov.
Rick Perry announced the
deployment of up to 1,000
armed National Guard
troops to the Mexican
border he was speaking to
voters in Iowa as much as
Texas.
The one-time and
possible future presidential
candidate is in the waning
months of his third and
final term as governor.
His visits to Iowa,
including the weekend
before his National Guard
announcement,
suggest
he is considering another
run for the Republican
presidential nomination.
If Perry’s call for troops
to the border sounds
familiar, that’s because
it’s not new. In early 2009,
as he was running for
re-election, Perry urged
then Homeland Security
Secretary Janet Napolitano
to deploy 1,000 troops
along the border in Texas.
At the time Perry was quick
to note that his concerns
focused on the growing
violence from Mexico’s
warring drug cartels and
the potential for a spillover
into U.S. cities, including
nearby El Paso.
Now, his worry is
the arrival of more than
57,000 child immigrants,
most of who are from
Central America and
crossing the border along a
narrow corridor in the Rio
Grande Valley. Perry had
previously asked President

America are detained
in squalor,” Perry said
Monday.
The deployment will
cost Texas an estimated
$12 million per month.
Texas Adjutant General
John Nichols said the
troops’ top priority will be
deterring illegal activity
along the border and
referring it to either state
troopers or Border Patrol
agents.
“If we find someone
conducting
illegal
activities, smuggling, then
DPS has arrest authority,”
Nichols said. “If they are
coming into the country
illegally then they’ll refer
them to CBP.”
Under the federal Posse
Comitatus Act, National
Guard troops can enforce
state laws while deployed
under Perry’s direction.
But the soldiers will be able
to do little more than call
immigration authorities if
they encounter immigrants
who successfully cross
the river into the United
States.
The problem today is
not immigrants crossing
the border while trying
to evade capture. Most
of them caught in South
Texas are surrendering
to authorities. Border
Patrol stations equipped
to
temporarily
hold
immigrants while they
await processing have
suddenly been clogged
with children traveling
alone.
Hidalgo County Judge
Ramon Garcia, the top
elected official in the
border county that has
been most impacted by
the surge in immigrant
children and families, said
Tuesday that guardsmen
could be spaced out all
along the border and it
wouldn’t stop the women
and children from stepping
on U.S. soil and turning
themselves in, Garcia
said.
“It’s
good
media,
but beyond that it’s not
practical,” said Garcia, a
Democrat. “People who
don’t understand the
situation are thinking it’s a
great deal.”
In a letter to Rep.
Joaquin Castro, D-Texas,
Perry said he is deploying
troops
“because
of
continued federal inaction
to secure the border.
This is a crisis enabled
by a porous border and
worsened
dramatically
by President Obama’s
misguided policies, which
you support.”
Perry added the troops
will also help address
crime in Texas that he
attributes to security
conditions at the border.
Bob Dane, a spokesman
for the Federation for
American
Immigration
Reform, a Washingtonbased group that advocates
for border security and
lower legal immigration
rates, said the troops will
act as a “force multiplier”
that will help discourage
immigrants from trying to
cross the border in the first
place.
“It seems urgent, it
seems fair,” Dane said of
Perry’s decision.

Q&A
Gang violence, fears for
children fuel rush to U.S.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Many immigrants flooding across the
southern border of the U.S. say they’re fleeing violent gangs in
Central America.
Experts, however, say those gangs are actually a byproduct
of U.S. policies in the 1990s that sent many immigrants back
to Central America after they had been indoctrinated into gang
culture in this country.
The violence they took with them easily took hold and flourished in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala — countries with
weak, dysfunctional governments.
A few things to know:
WHERE DO CENTRAL AMERICAN GANGS COME FROM?
One study estimated some 350,000 Salvadoran immigrants
illegally came to Southern California from 1980 to 1985 while trying to escape civil war and corruption in their home country.
They arrived with few English skills and many settled in
poor neighborhoods with strong Mexican- and African-American
gangs.
To survive and avoid bullying, they formed gangs such as
Mara Salvatruch or joined others such as the 18th Street gang.
They committed serious crimes and were sent to prison, where
they were further exposed to violent gang culture.
In the 1990s, the U.S. increased deportations of immigrants
facing criminal charges, particularly gang members. As many as
1,500 Salvadoran, Guatemalan and Honduran youths were sent
back each month to Central America. They arrived with the notoriety of being a Los Angeles gangster.
“There’s this huge explosion in all three of these countries of
the gangs and the number of gang members, partially because
it’s the way of street kids getting status and reputation, and partially because it’s a way of surviving,” said Tom Ward, a USC
associate professor who has studied the issue.
WHAT IS THE RELATION BETWEEN THE GANGS AND THE
INFLUX OF IMMIGRANTS AT THE U.S BORDER?
Many people fleeing Central America say they are running
from violence perpetrated by the gangs. But the migration is also
an effort to reunify families.
At least 80 percent of youths stopped at the border have one
parent or a close relative already in the United States, said Doris Meissner, former commissioner of the U.S. Immigration and
Naturalization Service and senior fellow for the Migration Policy
Institute, a nonpartisan think tank in Washington.
Family members already in the U.S. have saved enough
money to pay a smuggler to bring their children across the border so boys won’t be forcibly recruited into gangs and daughters
won’t be subjected to sexual violence.
WHY ARE WE SEEING THIS INFLUX OF IMMIGRANTS,
ESPECIALLY CHILDREN, NOW?
Word of mouth in Central American is strong and there is a
pervasive belief that the U.S. has been relaxing its immigration
stance toward minors. The belief was spurred by recent discussions about possibly changing U.S. immigration policy and by a
change in U.S. law in 2008 that provided more rights to minors at
the border that included a hearing before a judge.
At the same time, a crackdown on cartels caused those criminal organizations and their smuggling operations to spread from
Mexico to Central America. And more people decided it was time
to leave for the U.S. where they believed they would be allowed
to stay.
Migrants were told to have their children turn themselves into
the Border Patrol and they would be given a permit to enter the
U.S., said Eric Olson, associate director of the Latin American
Program for the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
The permit, however, was really an order to appear for a deportation hearing.
Even so, with court backlogs and a shortage of judges, it can
take as long as three years to get a hearing.
WHAT HAVE THE CENTRAL AMERICAN AND U.S.
GOVERNMENTS DONE AND WHAT ARE THEY DOING NOW?
Since 2008, the U.S. has approved $803 million for the Central American Regional Security Initiative, which includes efforts
to disrupt narcotics trafficking, support development of strong police and justice institutions, and prevent crime and violence. The
efforts have generally focused on preventing youths from joining
gangs — not busting gang members.
The Obama administration is now requesting that Congress
approve $3.7 billion in emergency funding to deal with the border
crisis. The proposal includes $300 million to address repatriation
and reintegration efforts among other issues. Funding would also
pay for a media campaign to get the word out about the dangers
of the journey to the U.S. and the lack of potential immigration
status when people arrive. It would also go to gang intervention
and prison reform.
accused by Republicans
of encouraging illegal
immigration by creating
a program to delay
deportation for some
young immigrants and
implementing a series of
prosecutorial discretion
policies that have protected
many others from facing
removal.
The Senate last year
passed
a
sweeping
immigration bill that
included a provision to add
about 20,000 new Border
Patrol agents, which
would nearly double the
agency for the second time
in the last 10 years. House
Republicans have insisted
the first priority should be
securing the border before
other changes are made.
On Saturday night,
Perry brought potential
voters in Des Moines, Iowa
to their feet when he said,
“We know how to secure
the border. If the federal
government will not do its
duty then I will suggest to
you that the state of Texas
will.” Less than 48 hours
later, he called out the
National Guard.

FAA lifts 24-hour ban on
US flights to Tel Aviv airport
WASHINGTON (AP)
— The Federal Aviation
Administration has lifted its
ban on U.S. flights in and out
of Israel, which the agency
had imposed out of concern
for the risk of planes being
hit by Hamas rockets.
The
decision
was
effective at 11:45 p.m. EDT
Wednesday.
“Before making this
decision, the FAA worked
with its U.S. government
counterparts to assess the
security situation in Israel
and carefully reviewed
both
significant
new
information and measures
the government of Israel is
taking to mitigate potential
risks to civil aviation,” the
FAA said. “The agency will
continue to closely monitor
the very fluid situation
around Ben Gurion Airport
and will take additional
actions as necessary.”
The FAA instituted a 24hour prohibition Tuesday
in response to a rocket
strike that landed about
a mile from Ben Gurion
International Airport in Tel
Aviv. The directive, which
was extended Wednesday,
applied only to U.S.
carriers.
The FAA has no
authority over foreign
airlines operating in Israel,
although the European
Aviation Safety Agency late
Tuesday said it “strongly
recommends” that airlines
refrain from operating flights
to and from Tel Aviv. Some
European carriers, including
Air France and Lufthansa,
extended flight cancelations
through Thursday.
The FAA’s flight ban
was criticized by the
Israeli government and by
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz
of Texas, who questioned
whether President Barack
Obama used a federal
agency to impose an
economic boycott on Israel.
Delta Air Lines, which
diverted a jumbo jet away
from Tel Aviv before
Tuesday’s ban by the FAA,
will not necessarily resume
flights to Israel even if U.S.
authorities declare the area
safe, the airline’s CEO said
before the FAA lifted the
ban.
CEO Richard Anderson
said Delta would of course
obey FAA orders but would
continue to make its own
decisions about safety.
HILADELPHIA (AP) —
German efforts to prosecute
aging
war
criminals
suffered a setback this week
with the death of a retired
Philadelphia
toolmaker
who had long been in the
crosshairs of Nazi hunters.
Bavarian prosecutors had
hoped to extradite 89-yearold Johann “Hans” Breyer
over his alleged service
as a Waffen SS guard at
Auschwitz in 1944.
However, Breyer died
at a Philadelphia hospital
Tuesday, hours before a
U.S. judge approved the
extradition request. Breyer
had spent a month in jail
since his arrest on charges
of accessory to murder in
the deaths of 216,000 Jews.
“It is very unfortunate
that Breyer died but this in
no way shape or form should
discourage the prosecution
of Nazi perpetrators who
can still be brought to
justice,” said Efraim Zuroff,
the head Nazi hunter at the
Simon Wiesenthal Center in
Jerusalem.
Suspected Nazi guard’s death a blow
After the rain ...
The area’s above-average rainfall has also created
an above-average need to mow grass and weeds this
summer. Ken Walder and Gary Green (standing) used a
mower to cut grass on Wednesday afternoon.
Family: Teen pilot knew risk of effort
LAINFIELD,
Ind.
(AP) — The family of
an Indiana teenager who
crashed in the Pacific
Ocean during an aroundthe-world flight says he
knew the risks and had
prepared for them.
The body of 17-yearold Haris Suleman of
Plainfield,
Indiana,
was recovered after
his single-engine plane
crashed Tuesday night
shortly after taking
off from Pago Pago in
American Samoa. Crews
were still searching for
his father, 58-year-old
Babar Suleman.
The duo had hoped
to set the record for the
fastest circumnavigation
around the world in a
single-engine airplane
with the youngest pilot in
command to do so. They
also were raising money
to help build schools in
Pakistan.
Both Sulemans had
undergone
training
for water emergencies
and wore protective
immersion suits over
water. But experts note
that young pilots have
less experience handling
emergencies.

Manziel, Hoyer ready for battle
BEREA, Ohio (AP)
— It's time for football,
Johnny.
After months of having his off-field behavior
analyzed, scrutinized and
criticized, Johnny Manziel
will again be the center of
attention.
This time, though, it
won't be for swigging
champagne on an inflatable swan, but during his
first NFL training camp as
he and Brian Hoyer battle
for the Browns' starting
quarterback job.
The
Hoyer-Manziel
showdown will dominate camp until someone
is named the winner, and
that decision from firstyear coach Mike Pettine
will not come until the
third exhibition game
(Aug. 23).
Manziel earned his
"Johnny Football" nickname during a stellar
career at Texas A&M,
where his daring, dazzling
scrambles and improvisational skills made him a
college star. It's probably
not going to be nearly as
easy for him at this level.
The Browns drafted
Manziel in the first round,
selecting him to hopefully
end a decade-plus problem at the game's most vital position. It may be only
a matter of time before
Manziel unseats Hoyer, a
career backup who started
three games last season
before tearing his right
knee ligament.
Hoyer enters camp with
a slight lead in the starter's
competition. It's up to him
to keep it.
A lifelong Browns
fan, Hoyer, who has full
medical clearance, is determined to hold off Manziel. The pressure will be
immense as every pass,
incompletion, interception
and touchdown will be
viewed and examined by
media members and thousands of fans, who had to
register online just to be
able to watch practices
this summer.
Cleveland fans appear
divided over Hoyer, the
hometown hero, and Manziel, the fun-loving curiosity.
The Browns, too, will
feel some heat — from
fans, TV networks, advertisers — to push Manziel
along. Let the duel begin.
Here are some other
things to watch as the
Browns, who haven't won
more than five games
since 2007, open a highly
anticipated camp:
GORDON GONE?: Pro
Bowl wide receiver Josh
Gordon's clouded situation has cast a cloud over
the Browns' hopes. Gordon, who led the league
in yards receiving last
season, may be facing an
indefinite ban for violating
the NFL's substance abuse
policy again. The 23-yearold hasn't helped his cause
with two recent arrests
— one for alleged DUI in
North Carolina. If Gordon
is done for the season, the
Browns may have to drastically alter their offensive
scheme, and find some
playmakers. Their receiving group is thin.
PETTINE'S
PATIENCE: The team's third
coach in three years, Pettine, who spent last season as Buffalo's defensive
coordinator, is doing all
he can to change Cleveland's culture. Pettine has
come across as pragmatic,
insightful and passionate.
Players seem to be buying
in, but until the Browns
start winning games, all
the positive talk is just
talk. One of Pettine's early
challenges will be managing the hype around the
Hoyer-Manziel competition.RUNNING AMOK:
Once they traded running
back Trent Richardson
last season, the Browns'
running game shifted into
reverse. Cleveland tied
for 27th overall in yards
rushing, a sad statistic
for a franchise renowned
for running backs such as
Hall of Famers Jim Brown
and Leroy Kelly. New offensive coordinator Kyle
Shanahan learned the Xs
and Os of a sound running game from his father,
Mike, who turned unknown
backs into Pro Bowlers in
Denver. With a new zoneblocking scheme and Pro
Bowlers Joe Thomas and
Alex Mack up front, the
Browns should open holes
for Ben Tate (free agent)
and rookie Terrance West.
SACK ATTACK: Pettine wants an aggressive
defense, and he's identified DE Jabaal Sheard as
a player who could make
a major impact this season. Sheard was moved
to outside linebacker last
season, and while he did
an admirable job in coverage, he recorded just
5½ sacks, a career-low.
The Browns are expected
to turn Sheard loose and
Cleveland's
defensive
front needs more production from Paul Kruger
(4½ sacks) and Barkevious Mingo (five sacks).
Sheard, too, is in the final
year of his contract.
PRIMARY
TARGET: Gordon's potential
suspension could make
things much tougher on
Pro Bowl TE Jordan Cameron, who had a breakout
season with 80 catches
for 917 yards and seven
TDs last year. Cameron
is in the final year of his
contract and would like an
extension, but he'll have a
tough time matching his
'13 stats without Gordon
to stretch the field and tie
up defenders.
