Arizona Ranchers weigh in on impact of illegals and border security
LINK

quote:

Much of the traffic across the Tucson Corridor of the border is controlled by the Sinaloa Cartel. Jim and Sue estimate more than 200 trails go through their ranch and all are under the rule of the Sinaloa Cartel.
“About 20 miles into the U.S. is controlled by the Sinaloa Cartel. That’s where our ranch is, it’s in no man’s land,” Jim says
Trail cameras are set up along three paths to help the Chiltons monitor activity on their ranch. They aren’t catching pictures of wildlife—mostly smugglers carrying large bundles of drugs. Last year 360 images of drug packers were captured.




quote:

Jim and Sue want more officers at the border. They have proposed leasing 10 acres of their property in the Forest Service allotments to the Border Patrol to set up forward operating bases. Their rental fee: $1 per year.
“The offer was made five years ago, and they are still studying it. If you can’t find the dollar, I’ll lend it to you,” Jim adds.


quote:

The Bells and Chiltons have installed drinking fountains at their water sites for migrants. Prior to this, cattle waterers would be broken routinely, draining stock tanks, as migrants searched for water. Even now, plastic piping is cut open when groups can’t quickly locate a tank


quote:

Wildfires started by those crossing illegally are also a problem. In 2011, three-quarters of Bell’s grazing allotments burned from 13 separate fires and only one wasn’t man-made.
Then, the cost of putting out fires is often passed to tax payers. Jim estimates at least $2 million was spent on firefighting on his ranch in 2017 because of fires started by smugglers and migrants.


quote:

The bollard fence has made a big impact on Bell’s ranch management
“Before, we had a lot of problems with the fence being let down, almost on a nightly basis,” he says.The neighbor’s cattle would cross from Mexico and graze his Forest Service allotments. “It really made an improvement when the bollard fence went in, and we could see the change from one growing season to the next.”

Sounds like we know where to place some of our soldiers (recently re-deployed from the Middle East and Europe) for an ambush on these criminals.

I’d set up bear traps on those trails if that was my property. Then mr drug smuggler would disappear.

Umm. I thought that drones were supposed to magically stop illegal crossings by themselves. Sakes alive you mean these people were caught on camera illegally crossing the border carrying drugs and the camera didn’t beam down and stop them??

Maybe we should put up some kind of barrier to give the cops that see them on the cameras time to go and get these innocent assylum seekers and help them find a better life.

Facebook post with this article had a variety of comments. Of course there are those saying they want open borders, some complaining about the ecological disaster having construction crews in remote desert, and others saying we should open the border and send US dollars, troops, etc to Mexico to rebuild it so we can live in harmony as neighbors

Then you and your family would disappear, or they would find your parts scattered about the desert.

1. Set bear traps to capture smugglers.
2. Wait for cartel to retaliate.
3. Watch in awe as US Special Forces stationed on your land in anticipation of cartel action deal with foreign invaders.
