I got this e-mail today. I haven't verfied it, but I have spoken to some people from AZ, and they seem to believe it's accurate.
This is on an "illegal super-highway" from Mexico to the USA (Tucson) used by human smugglers.
This area is located in a wash, approximately 1.5 miles long, just south of Tucson, Arizona. If a flood came, all this would be washed to the river and then onto the sea.
It is estimated over 5,000 discarded backpacks are in this wash. Countless water containers, food wrappers, clothing, feces, including thousands of soiled baby diapers. And as you can see in this picture, fresh footprints leading right into it.
As you keep walking down the wash, you would think for sure it was going to end, but around every corner is more and more trash.
And of course the trail leading out of the wash heads directly north to Tucson, then perhaps leads to your town tomorrow.
If these actions had been done in one of our Northwest Forests or Seashore National Park areas, there would be an uprising of the American people. Why is it different on the Arizona-Mexican border? Given problems like this, in conjunction with the kidnappings, drug deals, and criminals crossing the border, can you really blame them for wanting to enforce the law?
