In the past few weeks, concerned citizens of Cameron and Willacy County started protesting against random checkpoint that the local DPS implemented in the most busiest streets and Expressways of their county. The whole purpose of the checkpoints is to verify if the motorists where complying with State Laws concerning insurance information and license plates and inspection stickers to be in order. But angry locals are stating that Border Patrol Agents also started asking for citizens papers and proof that the motorists where legal in the Country.
Last week students of the University of Texas at Edinburgh and the Newly Formed TSTC protested near Expressway 77 stating that their rights where being violated and that DPS did not cared about motorists breaking the law that in fact the checkpoints where used to target and capture illegal immigrants that work illegally in the cities of Brownsville, Harlingen, Mission and Mcallen.
After a week of denying the evind, Sheriff Lucio announced today that in fact, starting October 1st, all motorists will have to comply to Border Patrol Agents regulations of showing proof of their citizenship, where they live, and if the motorists that are stopped are Mexican Nationals they are going to have to provide information as to why they are driving illegally and will also be subjected to showing them paperwork related to the registration, ownership, and insurance of the motor vehicle, the reason they are driving in which ever city they are stopped and comply to Border Patrol to impound, relocate or take away the vehicle during interrogation.
The following counties will have these checkpoints starting next week and motorists are advises that if they are stopped the fines could range up to 2,500 dollars with a minimum of 30 days imprisonment.

Lamar Odom husband of socialite and reality tv star Khloe Kardashian was found dead by members of the Jenner family after he abruptly left a rehabilitation clinic in Calabasas, California after only attending for two days. Odom's body was found by one of Bruce Jenner children that was visiting Jenner's residence over the weekend while helping Bruce Jenner packed some items for an estate sale. Lamar Odom had reportedly broken a window in the garage late monday night and was discovered lying on the floor surrounded by drug paraphernalia and several bottles of vodka and beer.
Lamar Odom was recently in the news following an embarrassing string of articles linking him to several ladies and also footage of him showing him doing crack that recently surfaced on E! news took a toll on the famous husband of celebrity reality tv star and fashion designer Khloe Kardashian that has since dropped from the spot light when news of his drug and abuse and several affairs were known to the public.
Friends and family from the troubled player stated to the media that Odom was released by the Lakers and that did not had any other options to be in any other Basketball team being that reason enough for his dabbling with drugs but that in no way was he a junkie or was unfaithful to his wife.
The Kardashian clan has not issued a public statement regarding the death of Lamar Odom while they wait for his wife Khloe Kardashian to fly back from South Africa early this Tuesday morning.
