Iran to
get prime
2 weeks
By The Associated Press
itan's parliament will elect a prime
minister this week or next, possibly
clearing the way for debate on the
future of the 53 American hostages held
since Nov. 4, a Tehran newspaper
reported yesterday.
The daily Enghelab Eslami said the
ruling Iranian Revolutionary Council
met Tuesday and voted unanimously in
favor of the parliament selecting a
prime minister.
interior minister and a member of the
parliamentary leadership, said, "With
the help of almighty God, the prime
minister will be appointed at the end of
this week or early next week," the
newspaper reported.
.Revolutionary leader Ayatollah'
Ruhollah Khomeini has ssid the fate of
the hostages would be decided by
Parliament once it names a prime
There were no reports yesterday, the
249th day, of captivity for= the
Americans, of a specific time for the
hostage question to come up.
Sadr asked Khomeini two months ago
for permission to appoint a prime
minister. Khomeini gave his approval,
but Bani-Sadr hesitated because he was
opposed by the powerful Islamic
Republican Party, which holds a
majority in Parliament.
Some members of the party want to
try the hostages as spies. Bani-Sadr op-
poses this.
Bani-Sadr has repeatedly said the
prime minister must get along with the
parliament and the president.

border recently. An estimated three million illegal aliens come across the border each year in search of a better life
in the United States. Most aliens are returned to Mexico.

aliens were caught in the United States
in 1979. Durwood Powell, director of the
service in Dallas, said that field agents
estimate that for every alien who is
caught, two go undetected.
They land in shrimp boats, swim the
Rio Grande, walk across the 1,900 mile
U.S.-Mexican border which begins a
few miles east of here, or are spirited
into the country by professional
smuggling rings.
"It's almost unbelievable," said U.S.
Attorney Tony Canales of Houston,
discussing the numbers of people in-

POWELL SAID: "You could have
agents stand arm-to-arm along the bor-
der and some would still find their way
in. I don't think there's ever going to be
a wall down there. I don't think that's
the intent of this country."
About 60 per cent of the illegal aliens
entering the United States come from
Mexico, according to INS figures.
Others flee from strife-torn Central
American countries like El Salvador,
Honuras, Nicaragua or Guatemala.
Authorities are still trying to piece

together what happened to the group of
Salvadorans found in Arizona last
Saturday. Thirteen people-including
one man believed to be an alien
smuggler-died. Fourteen survivors,
including two alleged smugglers, have
been found. A fourth purported
smuggler was unaccounted for.
commission was meeting in Ajo, Ariz.,
yesterday to begin an investigation of
the incident.
Officials involved in the traffic of
illegal aliens say that after evading the
U.S. Border Patrol, many of the
foreigners, head for urban centers like
San Antonio, Houslton, Dallas, Los
Angeles, Chicago and New York where
they can blend with existing-and
growing-illegal populations.
Before they cross the border, aliens
must pay steep fees to smugglers, or
"coyotes," for transportation into the
United States. Once they arrive-afraid
of detection and deportation-aliens
rarely protest low wages paid by U.S.
Aliens who are caught usually are
simply returned to Mexico, said
Canales, whose district includes the
Texas border between Laredo and
Brownsville. "The only people we
prosecute are the smugglers."
Assistant U.S. Attorney Emelio
Davila of Laredo says many Mexican
or Central American immigrants ride
commercial buses to the border and
gather in cheap hotels. Smugglers cir-
culate among the new arrivals, asking
if anyone wants to cross. The
smugglers sometimes cram up to 100
people into trucks, charging from $200
to $1,200 per person, depending on
nationality and the individual's ability
to pay.
