"The Un-Official Border Blotter" seeks to fill the void created by the U.S Customs and Border Protection's decision to stop reporting border incidents to the public in a concise manner.
"The Un-Official Border Blotter" chronicles day-to-today border incidents related to drug and human smuggling....obtained from official and un-official sources.
"The Un-Official Border Blotter" documents border incidents from a portion of the busy Tucson Sector (map) (262 border miles), however, this is just a small sampling of smuggling activity occurring at any one time all along the entire US/Mexico border (1, 1,933 border miles),
