Houston has everything the GOP wants in a convention site, but com mittee members do not want to pick the same city where the Democrats will convene, the Post reported. “We are 99 percent certain that Houston is where the Democrats are going,” committee member Eileen Schouweiler of Nevada said. Despite an earlier announcement, several committee members said there is a possibility the list, to be re leased on Friday, could contain only two cities instead of three, according to the Post. The newspaper also quoted un named committee members as say ing Houston still has a good chance of being among the finalists. One committee member was irri tated by the city’s push to attract the Democratic convention. Ebbie Spivey of Mississippi said, “It almost appears . . . that Houston did not want us as bad as it might want the other party. “While we were treated marvel ously, I don’t think we were given the hard sell they were given,” Spi vey said. City officials said they were pre pared to give the Republicans the same things they offered the Demo crats, including a $5 million insur ance policy payable if a convention hall under construction is not ready on time.

Police and border officials from Laredo to Brownsville regularly cap ture Mexican youths — some as young as 11 years — who are expert drug and alien smugglers and pro fessional thieves. The “Pachucitos” are used by or ganized crime rings based in Mexico, because Texas law does not allow criminal prosecution of juveniles younger than 17, the San Antonio Express-News reported Sunday. The youthful bandits have sent auto thefts skyrocketing in border cities, officials said. Usually, the only recourse avail able to law enforcement officials is placing the youths in the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Naturali zation Service, which then deports them to Mexico. Officials could place the children in the state juvenile justice system, but juvenile centers already are overburdened, said Richard Casillas, San Antonio INS director. "TL, nr M several years now', these; have been exploited."
