Illegal border activity jumps
BISBEE, Ariz. -- After nearly two years of declining numbers, illegal border-crossings took a sudden jump last month in Cochise County, law enforcement officials said. Gustavo Soto, a spokesman for the Border Patrols Tucson Sector, said agents at the Naco, Douglas and Willcox stations captured more than 13,000 illegal immigrants last month, a 30 percent increase from March 2006. Before the spike, Border Patrol apprehensions in the county were down 13 percent since Oct. 1. That decline followed a 45 percent drop during the previous year. Sgt. Taron Maddux, spokesman for the Bisbee Police Department, also noted a recent spike in local border crossings.
