Los inmigrantes eran albergados en una casa de la zona de Harlingen y otra en Brownsville durante su viaje desde México, de acuerdo con un informe publicado el martes por las autoridades mexicanas. Aunque las autoridades mexicanas están contentas con el descubrimiento de las residencias, las estadounidenses continúan con sus investigaciones. «No podemos negar o confirmar ninguna de las actividades de contrabando de indocumentados nombradas en esas direcciones por las autoridades mexicanas», dijo un vocero de la Patrulla Fronteriza, Reynaldo Díaz, a la edición del miércoles del Carry-Out Phone ( W. Vernor Detroit, Michigan Livernois W. Vernor Springwells diario The Brownsville Herald. En mayo, 19 indocumentados murieron a consecuencia del calor y la falta de aire al quedar abandonados en el interior de un semirremolque en Victoria. En octubre, 11 indocumentados fueron encontrados sin vida en un vagón en Iowa. La casa en Harlingen era administrada por Karla Patricia Chávez y su pareja, Heriberto Flores Rebollar, quienes esperan ser juzgados en Estados Unidos por su participación en las muertes en Victoria e Iowa, dijeron las autoridades mexicanas en el informe. La casa en Brownsville era manejada por Víctor y Emma Rodríguez, quienes trabajaban en el grupo de contrabandistas de indocumentados de Chávez, dice el informe. Los dos Rodríguez se encuentran prófugos, pero las autoridades dicen estar logrando avances en la eliminación del grupo de traficantes de indocumentados, que ha usado al menos cinco casas como punto de paso para los indocumentados en la zona fronteriza con México.

2 Página 2 GOP leaders seek resignation of Hispanic caucus chairman ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP): The Maryland Republican Party and Gov. Robert Ehrlich are calling for the resignation of the chairman of the state s Hispanic Republican Caucus, a group formed this year to attract Latinos to the party. Disagreements between the party and Jorge Ribas arose when the chairman publicly questioned whether Ehrlich is committed to putting Latinos in high-ranking positions in his administration. Party leaders say Ribas intemperate and divisive remarks in the media and elsewhere have cast the governor in a poor light. We believed that there needed to be a leadership change, said Eric Sutton, executive director of the Maryland Republican Party. (Ribas) hasn t gotten along with the program. He s spent more time worrying about Jorge Ribas than the Republican Party. John Kane, state GOP chairman, said Ribas has a hard time controlling what he says (so that he) doesn t irritate and insult people who are trying to help his own group. Ribas would not discuss his plans Thursday or comment on Kane s ultimatum that the new caucus would lose its affiliation with the Republican Party unless he resigned. Our relationship to the Maryland GOP is under review. At the appropriate time, the results of our decision will be made publicly known, Ribas said. Ribas has carefully avoided criticizing Ehrlich in public comments since being reprimanded about his criticism of the administration s record on the appointment of Latinos. He said the group s top priority is to help re-elect President Bush. The caucus also helped elect Gov. Ehrlich, and we continue to support Gov. Ehrlich and Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, Ribas said. Kane arrived unannounced Monday evening at a caucus meeting at a Columbia hotel to insist that Ribas resign. Otherwise, the state party will disband the caucus and rebuild it without Ribas, Kane said. The lieutenant governor and I have reviewed the situation, and it s deemed best that we cut our losses with Jorge Ribas, Kane said. He has poisoned the well of trust and respect that we should have with any caucus or any group. In June, Ribas delivered a sharply worded letter to Ehrlich that called the La Prensa Newspaper Staff Culturas Publications, Inc.

The letter also asked the governor to create a Latino liaison position in the governor s office. We are beginning to wonder if the opportunity team forged in your historic partnership (with Steele) fully understood the meaning of diversity, Ribas wrote in a letter released to media outlets. The letter and later comments to reporters angered Kane and other party leaders. He is not the person to lead the Hispanic caucus in the direction I want it to go, Kane said. Paul Schurick, Ehrlich s communications director, said Ehrlich s concerns go beyond Ribas comments about hiring, but would not provide specifics.

The tool was a database containing the personal information of 65 million votingage Mexican citizens. The U.S. government bought access to it for $1 million a year from a giant data vendor called ChoicePoint Inc. The company is based in Alpharetta, Ga. U.S. drug and immigration investigators prized the data, according to the Department of Homeland Security and other law enforcement sources, because it gave them latitude to track suspects inside Mexico without alerting local authorities. Now ChoicePoint s database is no longer available to help U.S. authorities. An Associated Press report detailing the U.S. government s access to the data triggered a public outcry in Mexico and other Latin American countries from which ChoicePoint had obtained citizens private records. After the Mexican government complained that its federal voter rolls were the source, and were likely obtained illegally by a Mexican company that sold them to ChoicePoint, the suburban Atlanta company cut off access to that information. In June, ChoicePoint wiped its hard drives of Mexicans home addresses, passport numbers and even unlisted phone numbers. The company also backed out of Costa Rica and Argentina. ChoicePoint had been collecting personal information on residents of 10 Latin American countries apparently without their consent or knowledge allowing three dozen U.S. agencies to use it to track and arrest suspects inside and outside the United States. The revelations helped kindle privacy movements in at least six countries where the company operates. Govern- ment officials have ordered or threatened inquiries into the data sales, saying ChoicePoint and the U.S. government violated national sovereignty. The federal registry is Mexican patrimony. For a fistful of dollars this information goes to the United States? asked Julio Tellez Valdes, a law professor and data protection expert at the Monterrey Technical Institute in México. Millions of Mexicans are now conscious about the necessity of a data protection law. The raising of Mexican awareness about personal privacy has not, however, been good for U.S. investigations of drug and immigration smuggling rings, U.S. law enforcers say. They consider foreign data an increasingly potent investigative tool, which can be used alongside other databases to identify potential terrorists or simply unmask fake identity documents. In the deadly immigration case in Arizona, ChoicePoint s tool did just that, helping uncloak a smuggler masquerading as a surviving immigrant, said a person familiar with that investigation. He spoke on condition of anonymity. The ChoicePoint data allowed U.S. agents to run their own investigations in México, while keeping Mexican police who make the arrests in the dark until the last moment so corrupt local authorities couldn t tip off suspects, U.S. officials said. We didn t have to rely on the Mexicans to provide us that information, said one federal investigator who used the ChoicePoint data, speaking on condition of anonymity. You run the risk of corruption when you ask the Mexicans for something. Now, Homeland Security s Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement uses less efficient tools, officials said. There s the yin and the yang for these kinds of products, said ChoicePoint marketing director James Lee. U.S. law enforcers love em but they never tell anybody that. One U.S. agent said he understood the Mexicans anger. I don t know that we d like the Mexican government having the same data on us, said La Prensa Nacional Published weekly on Thursday by Culturas Publications, Inc. 616 Adams Street, Toledo, Ohio Advertising deadline: Monday at 11:00 a.m. [camera-ready] Subscribe to La Prensa today! 26 weeks only $ weeks only $75.00 Name: Address: City/State/Zip Phone Number: Send Send your check or money order to: La Prensa, 616 Adams Street, Toledo OH Culturas Publications, Inc. d.b.a.

ChoicePoint also sells U.S. citizens financial, legal and personal details to the U.S. government. Privacy advocates charge that the government uses commercial data to skirt the 1974 Privacy Act, which prevents the government from compiling the files itself. Federal anti-terrorism projects including the Pentagon s Terrorism Information Awareness program are designed to plumb databases of Americans financial and legal records for clues to suspicious behavior. News organizations, including the AP, use ChoicePoint s data for researching stories. While ChoicePoint s sales of Americans files remain strong, the outcry in México appears to have torpedoed the company s largest foreign business. Former employee John Jordan, 41, of Jacksonville, Fla., said ChoicePoint s Latin American business was on life support in June when the company laid him off and deleted its Mexican data. Jordan, a data analyst, said the Mexican files attracted about two-thirds of ChoicePoint s international sales. Lee characterized ChoicePoint s foray into Latin America as an experiment, saying the data vendor collected less than $1 million of its $792 million in 2002 revenue from selling foreigners personal information. It s so small, it has no impact on our earnings, he said. Lee said ChoicePoint s business is unaffected in seven of the 10 Latin American countries where it still deals in data. And the company still sells driver s license data on 6 million residents of Mexico City. Mexican authorities have launched an official probe into the data sales to ChoicePoint, as have those in Colombia, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. In Mexico, federal investigators issued an arrest warrant for a fugitive believed to have sold the federal election records to a Mexican data firm, which resold the database to ChoicePoint. e-prensa!

9 September/septiembre 3, 2003 FLOC (Continued from Page 1) Magistrate Alan Mutchler, of the Lucas County Court of Common Pleas, Domestic Relations Division swore in the new officers prior to lunch break. Chuy Negrete, a Mexican folk singer now residing in Chicago, provided educational entertainment. Jesse Ponce, Sergio Sánchez, and Frank Ibarra also performed. According to FLOC President Baldemar Velásquez, This convention represents a unique opportunity for migrant farm workers in the United States. After 36 years of struggle, immigrant migrant workers are learning to understand the significance of collective action. This convention is their forum to tell the world about the issues that affect their lives. Velásquez informed La Prensa that, Latinos must be tenacious in their fight and support of migrant issues. Great mountains must be climbed to achieve the goals of justice for the migrant workers. At the 1994 convention, FLOC members directed the union to Organize the South in an effort to protect the victories gained by the union in Ohio. FLOC is still living out that directive by organizing in North Carolina and running a nationwide boycott of the Mt. Olive Pickle Company to gain recognition of the union in that state. Several resolutions were also passed including the reaffirmation of the boycott against Mt. Olive Pickle and the legalization of undocumented workers. Invited speakers included: Ken Riley, President of International Longshoreman Association local 1422, leader of the fight to free the Charleston Five; a representative of the French Labor Party; Petee Talley, Secretary/Treasurer of the Ohio State AFL-CIO; Saladin Muhammad, National Chair of the Black Workers for Justice; and the Reverend Floyd Rose, longtime Toledo Civil Rights leader, currently residing in Valdosta, GA.

Zilba ATTORNEY AT LAW La Prensa Américas: Argentina avanza a semifinales; México dijo adiós Por JUAN ZAMORANO SAN JUAN (AP): Argentina se apoderó el jueves del último pasaje a las semifinales del Preolímpico de las Américas al vencer por paliza a República Dominicana, en un cierre de la segunda ronda en que México y Venezuela se despidieron con victorias y el «Dream Team» estadounidense sumó su octavo triunfo en línea. Estados Unidos avanzó como primero y se enfrentará el sábado a Puerto Rico, que terminó en cuarto lugar. Argentina se topará nuevamente con Canadá, que quedó tercero. Los dos victoriosos del sábado asegurarán su clasificación a las olimpíadas de Atenas, además de que pelearán por el campeonato el domingo. El otro pasaje al básquetbol olímpico se lo llevará el que atrape el tercer lugar. Estados Unidos y Canadá ganaron los dos boletos olímpicos disputados en el pasado Torneo de las Américas de 1999 celebrado también en San Juan. Ahora hay un pase adicional, y el «Dream Team» y Argentina son los favoritos para llevarse los dos primeros. Estados Unidos aplastó a Puerto Rico y terminó la segunda ronda con ocho victorias sin derrotas; Argentina vapuleó a Dominicana y finalizó con cinco triunfos y tres reveses. Canadá, que cayó ante Venezuela 93-86, y Puerto Rico terminaron igualados con Argentina, pero los sudamericanos terminaron arriba en la tabla porque los había derrotado en la primera ronda. 124 N. Summit St. Toledo, Ohio / / FAX Web site: México, que venció a Brasil , y Venezuela finalizaron con cuatro victorias y cuatro derrotas cada una. Brasil se fue con 3-5 y Dominicana con 2-6.

Previamente, Venezuela dio la tercera sorpresa de la segunda ronda al ganarle a Canadá en tiempo extra.
