Illegals Flooding Into Southeastern Arizona
New Fence Causing Move?

Group of people near the Mexican border in Copper Canyon on 3/2/08
American Border Patrol -- March 9
    A group of private citizens report that illegal aliens are flooding into Santa Cruz and Cochise Counties following a well-known route in Copper Canyon.
    As shown in this video, groups stage along the border, waiting for a signal to cross.
    Sources say the U.S. Border Patrol makes no attempt to stop intruders. Rather, they send out patrols to pick up sign (footprints) that a group has crossed. Then they notify agents further north to be on the lookout.
    While no new fencing is scheduled for this area, recently installed fencing near Naco, Arizona may have resulted in increased traffic in Santa Cruz and Cochise Counties.
