Below is a series of photographs taken on June 27, 2007 by Lance Altherr who was the Tuscon Chapter Leader of the MINUTEMEN CIVIL DEFENSE CORPS. These photos were taken in the Sonoran Desert in a dried up river bed which is being used as an illegal immigrant "superhighway". Here are the photos, which you absolutely will not see in the mainstream media, along with the captions by Mr. Altherr. I have also included information from the National Park Service via a POST on Snopes that verifies the authenticity of this account. This is just one of many Mexican immigrant "layups" along the border, but according to another blogger friend of mine who lives in Arizona, Tuscon is the main entry point used by the Mexican illegals.
We estimate there are over 3000 discarded back packs in this layup area. Countless water containers, food wrappers,clothing, and soiled baby diapers. And as you can see in this picture, fresh footprints leading right into it. We weren't too far behind them.
As I kept walking down the wash, I was sure it was going to end just ahead, but I kept walking and walking, and around every corner was more and more trash!
And of course the trail leading out of the layup area heading NORTH to Tucson, then on to your town tomorrow.
Mr. Altherr said of this area: "The illegals have walked over 25 miles into our country when they get to this spot. At this spot, they can see the lights of Ammado, and they know they are within a few hours of getting picked up by the load vehicle which will take them anywhere in the country. When they come, they carry backpacks with clean clothes and food in them; when they get to this layup spot, they change out of their dirty clothes and into clean clothes so that they will blend in better once they get to town. They will cram as many as 20 people into the cab of a pickup truck or 30 people into a van or SUV, so there is no room for any backpacks or extra clothing. We find a lot of brand new clothes and good backpacks which we donate to local schools."
Mr. Altherr also provided another photograph from another layup site in southern Arizona.
The illegals are also using the ORGAN PIPE CACTUS NATIONAL MONUMENT to enter the U.S. The National Park Service had this to say:
"Every year thousands of people are attracted to this remote location for its apparent ease with which they can illegally enter the USA. Away from the development at Lukeville, the remoteness of our international boundary is impossible to effectively patrol. Under the cover of darkness, this line becomes a freeway filled with illegal foot and vehicle traffic."
"Most immigrants are unprepared for the rigors of crossing the Sonoran Desert. They carry a few possessions, a little food, and even less water. They are unaware they are crossing a national monument, a place dedicated to preservation for present and future generations. They may be unsure of the exact route, and merely follow the footsteps of others. As a result, the monument's wilderness is laced with hundreds of miles of unofficial roads and trails. These routes are usually lined with empty water jugs and other discarded items."
No, you absolutely will not see nor hear any of this on the mainstream media. This is yet more proof that illegal immigration isn't the insignificant issue the left would have you to believe. The magnitude of this truly makes it an invasion. One thing that isn't mentioned here, but can obviously be surmised is that they come in UNOPPOSED. Here is a photo from a hidden camera along one of these routes:
These are just three of many photos on BORDERINVASIONPICS.COM taken from video on their hidden cameras along these trails. Click on the link, and you will see just how many have been documented as illegally crossing the border each month. Hundreds every month. The videos prove it. Their latest post documents over 700 border intruders in 40 days (February 2 - March 12, 2010) on one trail.
Here is the video:
This is a matter of national security as this border is absolutely by far the easiest way for terrorists, Al-Queda and otherwise, to enter this country unimpeded. But, the politicians in Washington won't do anything about it because they benefit financially from it. All of them have business interests, either through investments or direct ownership. Either way, illegal immigrant workers increase the profit margin. Another reason Washington condones it is the desire to form the NORTH AMERICAN UNION. NAFTA was just the start. A secure border would definitely hinder this idea.
Is it any wonder now that Arizona had to try to do something about this? There was no choice in the matter. The majority of Americans nationally favor the Arizona law. Poll numbers are normally around 60% in favor. These numbers have sent a clear message to the liberal Democrats and yes, the White House.
Calls for boycotts are beginning to wane, and in at least one instance, the San Diego Tourist Board was trying to get Arizonans not to boycott their city in response to a boycott of Arizona announced by the city. Enough Arizonans have apparently cancelled travel plans to San Diego and have called the city informing them of it to get their attention.
According to the San Diego Union Tribune, many Arizonans have called the San Diego Convention and Visitors Bureau informing them of the cancellation of vacation plans to travel to San Diego. The bureau is "urging Arizonans to consider the resolutions as merely symbolic and local politics at work." They went on to say, "We're in a very tough environment already because of everything else going on, and we don't need another negative impact to our industry." Well, city leaders should have thought of that before they did something so ridiculously assinine. Keep it up, Arizonans!! And anyone else for that matter.
Boycott anything that comes from any municipality that calls for such a boycott such as Los Angeles, Austin, Boston and San Francisco, and let them know about it. It won't do much good if you don't contact them. Patronize Arizona businesses and manufacturing as much as you can. Click HERE for a listing of Arizona businesses by category you can patronize. Anytime you need a reminder why, just come back and view these photos, and be sure to go to BorderInvasion.com and watch the videos.
