    Sheriff Larry Dever of Cochise County, Ariz., which sits on the U.S.-Mexico border, says if President Barack Obama were to come and visit that county he would like to take him to visit the grave of rancher Robert Krentz who was shot and killed on his own property in March by an attacker who fled south on foot into Mexico. The attacker shot both Krentz and his dog after Krentz had radioed his brother to tell him he saw an immigrant who appeared to be in trouble and that his brother should notify the Border Patrol.

    DOUGLAS, Ariz. (CNS) -- Sue Krentz is a conflicted woman, coping with many strands of the complicated, apparently unsolvable quagmire of what has become normal life near the Mexican border. She grapples, for instance, with the calls for a humanitarian approach to immigrants that she hears at St. Luke's Catholic Church. For decades, her family has shown compassion to those who cross the Krentz ranch on their way to find jobs to support their families, she explained, providing water and other aid before calling the Border Patrol. But it pains her deeply that there was no similar compassion from whomever...

Robert Krentz was reported missing by relatives March 27 after they lost contact with him while he was out checking wells on his 35,000-acre property northeast of Douglas. His body was found that night by authorities searching the area. While the 56-page file that was released Tuesday contains very little new information, it does provide a timeline of events in the moments just prior...

He was supposed to meet a family member at a watering tank at 12:30 p.m. When he did not show up, the family started a search and then called Search...

Agua Prieta's mayor and police chief also deny reports they're working closely with top U.S. investigators. They say they have not spoken with American officials in more then a month. Nine On Your Side's Steve Nunez sat down with Mayor Vicente Teran and his Police Chief Alfonso Novoa. Novoa tells us his officers have questioned more then 100 people. Teran says they've even offered a $10,000 reward, and no one has come forward. Nunez asked: "What do you say...

In inviting him to testify, Giffords said she wanted members of Congress to hear from a person who lives with security problems caused by illegal activities involving immigrants and drugs on a daily basis.

    Security: After letting Mexico's president trash Arizona's immigration law and his immigration enforcement chief say he won't enforce it, the president wants to send a token National Guard contingent to the border. There's something disingenuous about the president's plan to deploy 1,200 National Guard troops to the Arizona border to help the Border Patrol catch illegal aliens. His director of immigration and customs enforcement, John Morton, has said he might not enforce immigration crimes reported by Arizona officials, though the state's new law merely copies federal law. Morton is director of ICE, not chief justice of the Supreme Court. He...

Now everyone is demanding troops. Now, with Gov. Jan Brewer's signature on a tough new illegal-immigration law, the nation is embroiled in a loud debate about racial profiling. Now everyone has a multi-point plan for bringing some control to a border so porous that anyone who wants to get into the country can eventually do...

    Climate can shape character. As anyone who's driven west past the 98th meridian knows. That's where the rains stop, as the first wave of settlers discovered. After a deceptively wet season or two, they beat a hasty retreat. Out there creek beds run dry, except when a flash flood turns them into a raging menace. The trees grow stunted, the people tall, and the conversation as sparse as the vegetation. People may not use many words, but what they say you can usually trust. I've known a few Texans like that. They were rare even by the time we used...

John McCain and Jon Kyl have joined with others requesting troops on the border by unveiling a security plan that calls for more soldiers, federal agents, fencing and funding to help Arizona combat illegal immigration and drug smuggling. The Republican lawmakers called for the deployment of 3,000 National Guard soldiers to Arizona's international border as part of their 10-step border plan unveiled Monday in Washington, D.C. The senators also asked for troops in April 2009. The March 27 killing of Cochise County rancher Robert Krentz has set off a flurry of requests for troops to the border, from the...

    The unknown gunman who murdered an Arizona rancher three weeks ago entered and exited the U.S. illegally in an area where border agents are widely prohibited from using motorized vehicles, constructing roads and installing surveillance structures, federal agents have confirmed. The development prompted four Republican congressmen to introduce legislation on Wednesday that will ban the Interior Department from using environmental regulations to hinder agents along the border, including at the San Bernardino National Wildlife Refuge, a 2,300-acre parcel near where rancher Robert Krentz was killed on March 27.

The Krentz family called for the active-duty military to be deployed, and many of their neighbors have demanded that troops not only come but be given authority to track lawbreakers, arrest them and - if threatened - shoot.

    SIERRA VISTA — Arizona’s Attorney General Terry Goddard said Friday that the recent shooting death of a well-known Cochise County rancher is consistent with the work of scouts for Mexican drug cartels. On Saturday, Robert Krentz, 58, was found dead inside his all- terrain vehicle on his ranch about 35 miles northeast of Douglas. Goddard said his comments were based on media reports and his previous experience investigating the prosecution of the cartel movement of drugs in Arizona. While it wasn’t the only possible explanation for the killing, it was a “distinct possibility,” he said. Scouts are stationed throughout the...
