25 Miles: The Open Cartel Door to the U.S.

2 miles west of Nogales, Arizona is the start of a 25 mile stretch of unsecured border. Why isn’t it protected? What’s coming through?


The real Mexican border: open door to rural Arizona

Mexico on the right; Arizona on the left: this fence is easily and constantly cut to provide unobstructed, unguarded access to the US for Cartel “commerce.” Multiple crossings along this 25-mile rural border area are mostly used to carry drugs to pick-up points that connect to I-8, I-19, and I-10 and on to every city in the United States.


Trash on the border

Over 27 thousand tons of trash have been dropped in the Tucson Sector based on Border Patrol calculations of 8½ pounds per person apprehended–of course, it is unknown how many more persons were NOT apprehended and also dropped their 8½ pounds of trash.
