what position the state might take Chief Deputy Brian John said INS authorities were due to interview X alenzuela today at the jail to deter mine his status A motion filed by Cedillo to either release him or reduce bond heard in district court here earlier this month was denied by Judge Fred Moore on the basis that lab reports were delay ed and expected in time to pre sent to thi- week's grand jury
