Border Intrusion Raises Questions
Border Patrol Lacking at Critical Spot

American Border Patrol -- August 25  
Large group of people head for U.S. border – August 23

    At 6 pm Pacific Time on Saturday, August 23 an American Border Patrol Virtual Vigilance Volunteer spotted a group of people headed for the border in southeastern Arizona. They were in Mexico less than 100 yards south of the border. The volunteer was in Texas.
     Because of the size of the group, about 50-60, and the fact that they were headed for the border, the volunteer decided to report them to the U.S. Border Patrol.
    This is almost an every night occurrence.
