Please don't knock the USBP - they made 353,000 apprehensions in fiscal year 2009 - figure another 1,059,000 got through.
They won't work in AZ but they have to enter here - they go to UTAH and OREGON where they are welcomed.
The AZ-MEX border is 389 miles, mostly hostile terrain. With 907.5 illegals entering every mile on the average that get caught - or - 1,412,000 totally coming in, or 3,630 daily per mile of border, 25% getting caught.
Their response time in our area is terrific compared to some poor performance in the past. We're getting larger loads now being dropped off with 200-300 a week passing by. With contraband, dirty bombs, and terrorism a close reality we need to be more vigilant.
Don't knock us....support us!
