Hanford, pastor of Valley Hi First Rapnst Church, said he wanted a bracelet with which to remember soldiers fighting in Operation Desert Storm He had received a prayer bracelet las! week while attending the Texas Baptist Evangelism Conference in Fori Worth. Some Texas churches have been using the bracelets in their efforts to spread the faith Church officials said different colored beads on the band represent steps in the plan of salvation, with red symbolizing the blood of Christ and white representing forgo encss Hanford said he was looking at one bracelet ai his church when the notion came to use the bands for remembering soldiers in the Persian Gulf. "ll was like the Lord tapped mc on tire shoulder and said, 'You’re wearing it on your wrist.’ Then the Lord shaded what the beads stood for," he told tile San Antonio Exprcss-Ncws. Hanford said the colors’ significance was revealed lo him during a prayer meeting Jan 23 He suggested that pins of the bracelets can remind people of different prayers. Tile* bead colors include red for tin: wounded; green for young, inexperienced soldiers; blue. for the depressed and lonely; ami black, for those in spiritual darkness on both sides of tile conflict. The pastor said a knot on the bracelet could be used to remember POWs, while a clear bead was "for our leaders, to think clearly in this crisis.” He said the band can be made by anyone for Jess than 40 cents from a 16-ineh piece of 18-inch thick leather and seven 6mm plastic beads, available at craft shops Hanford said the project has caught the attention of television evangelist Pat Robertson, host for the "700 Club” program on the Christian Broadcasting Network.

Ll. Gov. Bob Bullock said. Gov. Ann Richards refused to speculate on the matter Thursday, and House Speaker Gib Lewis called the discussion premature. ”1 don’t see any way around it ... The possibility of not having a tax bill is very. very remote if Texas is going to move ahead in the future,” Bullock said. Asked if the state can get by without a tax increase. Richards said. "I have no idea. and I’m not going to pre-guess it.” Bullock's prediction came despite a bill passed by the Legislature and signed by Richards Thursday to carve $139.3 million from sate spending and to audit sate agencies to see if more money can be saved. It was the first bill passed this ses sion. and the first signed by the new governor. The sate faces a projected budget shortfall of $4.6 billion through fiscal year 1993 There is an estimated deficit this fiscal year of about S265 million, mostly in welfare services, that the budget-cutting bill will help cover. The rest of the immediate deficit could be made up through funds expected to be left in state coffers when the current fiscal year ends Aug. 31. lawmakers said. The bill includes about a I percent budget cut for state agencies, with some exceptions, and the transfer of unspent funds from several accounts Richards said the bill should assure •Texans that "we have done everyi thing that we know to do to make sur{ that the taxpayers are gelling Lhcir money ’s worth " INS reports increase in illegal immigration Market gives up gains NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market turned downward today, giving up some of its strong recent gains. The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials dropped 20.80 to 2.715.59 by 11 a.m. on Wall Street. Losers slightly outnumbered gainers in nationwide trading of New York Stock Exchange-listed issues, with 568 up. 601 down and 474 unchanged.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Widespread use of fraudulent documents which allow undocumented workers to find work is driving a surge in illegal immigration after three straight years of decline, officials say. "It’s an issue today; it will be a crisis tomorrow if we don't address it,” says Rep. Lamar Smith, R-San Antonio. ” Hie word is going back that if you can obtain, at a minimum cost, a driver's license and fraudulent Social Security card, that's all you need to meet the burden of proof lo work in the United States,” said Duke Austin, a spokesman for the Immigration and Naturalization Service. Under the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), employers face civil and criminal sanctions for hiring undocumented workers. But un employer is not required to validate an employee's documents. making it possible for illegal aliens to get work with a fraudulent Social Security card and a driver’s license obtained with that Social Security card. Austin said. Austin said blackmail Social Security cards can be bought for $25 to $40. "lf it looks valid, an employer has met his burden.” Austin said. "Tile word is out that document fraud is the key to gelling a job in America ... massive quantities of fraudulent documents arc undermining the effectiveness of sanctions,” said Dan Stein, executive director of the Federation for American Immigration Reform. Smith, a member of the House immigration subcommittee, said estimates indicate that as many as half the illegal aliens in the United Sates arc using fraudulent documcnu. "To stop this flouting of the law we need a tamper-proof card of some sort — not a national ID card — but simply making the documcnu in use tamper-proof.” Smith said Thursday. According to INS figures, apprehensions of people trying to cross the Southern border illegally rose from 854.128 in the fiscal year that ended Sept 30, 1989, to over I million for the fiscal year that ended this past Sept. 30.
