Laura Gómez and Rafael Carranza Arizona Republic Published 12:06 p.m. UTC Jun 23, 2018 NOGALES, Sonora — Word of mouth gets migrants who arrive to this border city, by bus or freight train, to the DeConcini port of entry. "Look for Marla, she'll help you," Magali Nieto Romero told a recently arrived woman and her teenage son who wanted to make contact with U.S. immigration officials. Both women are among the 147 families that have arrived since May at Arizona’s busiest port of entry to seek asylum, according to local community groups. The people — mostly from Guatemala and southern Mexico — are being processed by U.S. immigration officials at a much slower pace than they are arriving, so families seeking asylum at official ports of entry have to wait for several days.

0 Have your say Scotland’s marathon man gives me very precise directions to his home in the village of Ellington – “as in Duke” – on the Northumberland coast but almost inevitably I get lost and have to seek help in the busy post office. “Who is it you’re here to see?” asks an old-timer in the queue. “Jim Alder,” I say. “Ah Jim. He used to run past my house every morning and now he walks, picking up litter as he goes. A right character.” I tell Alder of my failure and he seems disappointed. When he was invited to present the marathon medals at Glasgow’s Commonwealth Games, two Kenyans failed to show, having gone astray somewhere in the city, so the ceremony had to be postponed. That was comical but when Alder himself took a wrong turning while pounding out the 26 miles in Jamaica in 1966, it was very nearly tragic. Maybe this explains the copious instructions. Now I feel even more of a fool … [Read more...] about Interview: Jim Alder on getting lost and still winning marathon gold
