CBP Catches Fugitive on Warrant for 1994 Chicago Homicide

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the San Ysidro port of entry Friday caught a fugitive with an active, no-bail felony warrant for homicide in the first degree, issued in 1994 at the request of the Chicago Police Department.

At about 5 p.m. on April 22, Alfredo Marin Ramirez, a 39-year-old male Mexican citizen, arrived at the San Ysidro port of entry, and requested a waiver to enter the U.S., since he did not have the required documents. Marin Ramirez presented his Mexican birth certificate and other official identification documents from Mexico.

Infrastructure Financing District

By Mario Conde

The Imperial County Board of Supervisors voted to endorse the new Infrastructure Financing District proposed bill that will start hearing this week.

As reported before by the Calexico Chronicle, State Senator Louis Wolk (D-Davis) introduced SB 214 that would ensure that municipalities still retain some tools to continue their economic development and give locals another financing option similar to redevelopment agencies. Wolk’s legislation, Senate Bill 214, works as compromise in the ongoing debate to eliminate or not the RDA. SB 214 would allow the Infrastructure Financing Districts (IFDs) to absorb many of the functions of the current redevelopment agencies. This new agency could replace the Redevelopment Agencies if they are phased-out by the governor’s proposal.
