Barriers Behind Mexican War
Drug Lords Fight Over Remaining Routes

Pedestrian barrier cuts off vehicle route along wash east of Yuma.
American Border Patrol -- January 21
    Following more than a year of detailed aerial surveillance of the border, American Border Patrol has suggested that the recent increase in violence in Mexico is related to increased enforcement of the border. "We have documented hundreds of routes taken by vehicles driving into the United States from Mexico that have been cut off by new border fencing and vehicle barriers," said Glenn Spencer of ABP. "It only makes sense that smugglers are going to be fighting over the access routes that remain," Spencer added.
    ABP will be issuing a detailed report on the status of border fencing and barriers later this week.
