A look at illegal entry and drug smuggling on the borderby Hugh Holub on Jun. 13, 2011, under border issues, department of homeland security, drug smuggling, politics
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and President Barack Obama would like us to believe the border is more secure than ever.
Except not only do border area ranchers and residents know this is not true, interestingly hunters have been photo-documenting what is going on in our borderlands.
The following photos were emailed to me….
Some trail cam pics mostly in Game Managetments Areas 36B, Some in 36C, one in 36A
As you can see we have both migrants and drug smugglers running around the borderlands south and west of Tucson. And people carrying assualt rifles.
Note: Management Area 36A is described as: Beginning at the junction of Sandario Road and Arizona Highway 86, Southwesterly on AZ Hwy 86 to AS Hwy 286, southerly on AZ Hwy 286 to the Arivaca Road, easterly on the Arivaca Road to I-19, north on I-19 to the southern boundary of the San Xavier Indian Reservation boundary, westerly and northerly along the reservation boundary to the Sandario Road alignment, north on Sandario Road to AZ Hwy 86.
Most of these photographs were taken in 36B: Beginning at I-19 and Grand Avenue in Nogales, southwest on Grand Ave to the US-Mexico Border, west along the U.S.-Mexico Border to AZ Hwy 286, north on AZ Hwy 286 to the Arivaca Rd, east on the Arivaca Rd to I-19, south on I-19 to Grand Avenue
In the Arizona Game Management Booklet it describes the state lands south of Interstate Highways 10 & 8 as; “Homeland Security Issues along the International Border may affect the quality of a person’s hunt. Call (800) BE-ALERT to report suspicious activity.
Janet Napolitano had failed to discover what the Game Department and Hunters in Southern Arizona have known for years, and that is that the Border is not secure.
