HOUSTON (AP) - A Texas woman has been allowed to leave Mexico after being detained while trying to deliver Christmas gifts to a sprawling refugee camp housing people waiting for U.S. court dates. Relatives of Anamichelle Castellano say she was arrested by Mexican authorities Monday at a bridge crossing from Brownsville, Texas, to Matamoros, Mexico. Castellano's relatives say authorities discovered a small box of ammunition inside Castellano's car, which they say was left by her husband following a previous hunting trip.
