East Arizona, Part 1
Arizona's border with Mexico is approximately 370 miles long
and includes some of the most rugged and romantic landscapes in
all of America's southwest.
The 370 miles of Arizona's border with Mexico is also some of
the most dangerous and violent land on earth. Each year, over
a million illegal aliens race north across this part of the Mexican
border and into Arizona.
Included in this stampede are people from Afghanistan, Iran,
Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. In addition, smugglers use this most desolate
part of America's border as a freeway to traffic thousands of
pounds of heroin and cocaine to America's cities.
To add even more to the outrage, hundreds of sex slaves are also
pushed north across this part of the border each year.
According to Robert C. Bonner, former commissioner of the Bureau
of Customs and Border Protection, more than half of all illegal
aliens entering the United States do so through Arizona.
The violence continues to increase and while our federal politicians
seek votes from any quarter (legal or illegal, they all vote),
our cities are now taking action to protect themselves. Phoenix,
Arizona is facing massive levels of violent illegal alien crime.
The smuggling business in Arizona is quite lucrative (it costs
an average of $2,000 to be smuggled into the United States and
smuggling just ten "pollos" means $20,000 in tax free
cash) and gunfights between

network of highways. The State of Arizona is not used to needing
tanks to patrol the "Arizona Highways." The image here
shows they bought one.
Arizona highway gunfights are real and the smoke from burning
vehicles can be seen even to the horizon. Bodies can be strewn
across the roadways causing inconvenient traffic delays. All of
this is now part of the rich tapestry of life in Arizona -- especially
