Agents on horseback arrest 80 migrants near Arizona border

Border Patrol agents in southern Arizona have made their single-largest arrest of the year.

On Friday, agents patrolling on horseback east of Douglas saw a large number of footprints and began tracking them.

After following the foot signs for several hours, agents arrested a group of 80 from Mexico outside of a ranch about 30 miles east of Douglas.

At least three agents took the group into custody. All were transported by buses to the Border Patrol station in Douglas.

Fingerprint checks showed 21 men had criminal records, including one convicted of vehicular manslaughter in California.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
