IN NOGALES, ARIZONA On the dusty hilltops west of U.S. Interstate 19, National Guardsmen with M-4 rifles peer down from camouflage tents and surveillance posts, so close to the border fence they can almost watch TV through the windows of Mexican homes on the other side.
Homeland Security keeps trotting out its statistics about reductions in apprehensions of illegal aliens…which is supposed to mean the border is more secure….yet in the rural areas of the border in Arizona the war goes on and no one feels safe out there.
