Friday (9/29) KNAU in the White Mountains, KNAA 90.7, will reduce power temporarily. This is to protect tower workers as they work on an adjacent cellular antenna. Reception may be poor to non-existent in some areas including service over the repeater on 105.3. Online streaming service will not be affected. With afternoon winds forecast, the crew will likely get an early start and may not require a great deal of time for their work.

KNAU's main phone line is experiencing technical difficulties. Click here to contact members of our team directly.

U.S. Border Arrests Drop As Focus Turns To Mexican Nationals

Authorities say the number of people arrested or stopped entering the United States along the Mexico border decreased for a seventh straight month in December.

Border officials say Mexicans outpaced Central Americans among the detainees.

U.S. authorities say they made 40,620 arrests or detentions of people on the Mexico border in December. That’s down 5% from 42,651 in November and down 72% from a 13-year high of 144,116 in May.

The Trump administration has begun a host of enforcement measures aimed at Mexican nationals. They include a test to quickly determine asylum claims and deporting migrants to the central Mexico city of Guadalajara to discourage repeat attempts to cross the border illegally.
