My wife grew up in Arizona about 15 miles from the boarder where this occured.. When she lived there she had to endure an hour and a half hour buss trip to school one way. They were about 50 miles removed form the nearest emergency vehicle or law enforcement officer....
She recounts all the illegals who would come to their home in the middle of the desert looking for water.. Which her family provided. The people down there today have it totally different. There are many many more illegals today than their were back in ghe 70's and their is a huge crime element too.
21 Killed In Mexican Shootout
Twenty-one people died and six others were wounded on Thursday in a gun fight between rival drug and trafficking gangs near the Arizona border. The violence took place on a dirt road in a primary avenue for moving drugs and immigrants near Nogales, Mexico. According to the Sonora State Attorney General's Office, police captured nine people at the crime, six of whom had been wounded in the fire fight, along with eight vehicles and seven weapons. Officials believe that all of the victims were gang members. Drug violence has now claimed more than 23,000 lives in Mexico since late 2006.
