    Police Chief: Garc*a Released From El Paso Detention Center

    21-year-old Praxedis G. Guerrero police chief released from El Paso detention center.

    The young police chief who abandoned her post in the Juárez Valley after death threats is not detained in a U.S. facility anymore, according to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement records.

    The Chihuahua Human Rights Commission said immigration agents in El Paso interviewed Marisol Valles Garc*a, 21, last week to see if she had credible fear to flee her country and seek asylum. Valles was processed and released while some of her relatives are still in custody.

    An immigration judge will hear her case in the future. A date has not been determined.

    Officials are not disclosing her whereabouts, but she is staying in the United States.

    "The U.S. government is treating her more considerately," said Gustavo de la Rosa Hickerson, the

    human rights ombudsman in Juárez. "She asked immigration officials not to disclose where she was going to be. She is keeping a low profile and is protected."

    Valles, criminology student and mother of an infant son, was police chief of Praxedis G. Guerrero, a town of 4,700, since October. Valles was part of an experiment to have police departments do more social work and regain people's trust.

    Last week, Valles asked for a leave of absence on March 1 and was supposed to return to work on Monday. Reports of death threats against her and her flight began to swirl.

    When Praxedis town officials wanted to reach her, they could not. A town employee saw her crossing the international bridge from El Porvenir into Fort Hancock on Wednesday.

    Praxedis Mayor José Luis Guerrero, fired her on Monday.

    Valles Garc*a may become a U.S. citizen because she has worked as police Chief in Mexico.

    Juarez Police Officer Denied U.S. Asylum

    Juarez Police Officer Denied U.S. Asylum

    Jose Alarcon, 27, was a cop in one of the world’s most lawless cities. Wounded in a gun battle with drug gangs in Juarez in 2008, he survived only to see his partner killed in another gunfight. When Alarcon refused bribes from the city’s drug lords, he knew it was a matter of days before they killed him, too. Alarcon, his wife and two young children fled to El Paso to seek asylum in the United States.

    In early January, Alarcon’s asylum case was denied by a Dallas federal immigration judge. The case could set a precedent for other Mexican police officers seeking asylum in the U.S. It’s difficult to determine how many officers have requested asylum because U.S. immigration officials do not collect the data. One of Alarcon’s Dallas attorneys, Will Humble, said Texas lawyers with cases scheduled before asylum judges have been calling his office since the denial. “They’re very anxious and want to see how the decision applies to their clients,

    We really need to stop these endless appeals which result in Anchor Babies. The First decision should be FINAL.
