In a White House meeting with the leaders of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, Obama had a tough-love message: his administration had compassion for the children, but not many would qualify for humanitarian relief or refugee status. The meeting came as Obama struggles to contain a border crisis triggered by the tens of thousands of children who have crossed the Texas border with Mexico in recent months. FBI found bomb-making cache in Tucson rampage gunman's home: LA Times (Reuters) - Jared Lee Loughner, who killed six people and shot former Arizona lawmaker Gabrielle Giffords in a 2011 rampage, kept bomb-making components in a safe in his bedroom, the Los Angeles Times reported on Friday. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) files released to the newspaper showed that agents and sniffer dogs, who stormed Loughner's home just after his capture, found equipment including batteries, a circuit board, wires, and a numeric keyboard, the LA Times said. The files, amassed as the FBI investigated Loughner and released this week at the LA Times' request under the Freedom of Information Act, also showed his love of guns, erratic behavior and an obsession with Giffords. The FBI did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Texas rolls out security surge for its border with Mexico By Marice Richter DALLAS (Reuters) - Texas has launched a law enforcement surge to crack down on drug and human trafficking from Mexico in a move that comes as the state is about to deploy as many as 1,000 National Guard troops to the border, officials said on Friday. The surge, announced last month and recently implemented, places more law enforcement officials and resources on the border and will result in $1.3 million in additional spending a week for the Texas Department of Public Safety, officials from the department said, without offering a specific date when it was launched. Texas Governor Rick Perry, seen as a potential Republican candidate in the 2016 presidential election, has blamed the Obama administration for not doing enough to halt a surge in children from Central America crossing the border. "Mexican cartels and criminal elements are taking advantage of this situation by further exploiting these gaps along the border to commit heinous crimes that will further their business," said Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Tom Vinger.

Wildfire managers tap military for aid in U.S. West By Laura Zuckerman SALMON Idaho (Reuters) - Wildfire managers have turned to the U.S. Department of Defense for immediate access to two military C-130 aircraft retrofitted to carry retardant, boosting their forces to face the largest blaze in Washington state history. The U.S. Forest Service has its own fleet of more than 20 air tankers, but has in the past called on the military to provide aircraft to help suppress wildfires. Blazes that have raged across hundreds of thousands of acres (ha) of forests and grasslands in Washington state and Oregon triggered the call for the two aircraft, Steve Gage, a senior official with the U.S. Forest Service, told reporters in a conference call on Friday.

Lead-lined glove tied to New Mexico radiation leak: lawmaker A radiation leak that indefinitely shut down a nuclear waste dump in New Mexico was likely caused by a container of radioactive materials improperly packaged with a lead-lined glove at Los Alamos National Laboratory, a state lawmaker said on Friday. The glove is the latest clue in the mysterious accident in February at the Waste Isolation Plant near Carlsbad, where drums of radioactive debris from federal nuclear weapons sites and laboratories such as Los Alamos are entombed in salt caverns 2,100 feet (640 meters) underground. Investigators have said a chemical reaction between nitrate salts and organic kitty litter used as an absorbent created sufficient heat to melt seals on at least one drum of contaminated sludge, which had originated at the Los Alamos lab near Santa Fe. New Mexico Senator Peter Wirth said on Friday that a Los Alamos scientist who appeared on Wednesday before the state legislature's Radioactive and Hazardous Materials Committee revealed that the drum that leaked radiation was improperly packaged at Los Alamos with chemically reactive contents that included a lead-lined glove.
