Fox News Latino: Undocumented Protesters in North Carolina Will Not Be Deported They walked into the North Carolina legislative meeting on cracking down on illegal immigration wearing T-shirts that declared “Undocumented and Unafraid.” They shouted their opposition after Rep.

The Herald Sierra Vista: Protecting the U.S. Border Glenn Spencer, president of the nonprofit border watch group American Border Patrol, is hopeful the state will pursue a new border security system, known as the Sonic Barrier, which can sense people, vehicles, aircraft and even tunneling within 200 yards of the U.S./Mexico border.
