Trashing Arizona: Illegal Immigrant Waste Dumps (with Pics)
Tucson Weekly ^ | 04/02/2009 | Leo W. Banks

Posted on 06/11/2010 7:03:10 PM PDT by BuckeyeTexan

Prowling these border dumps provides the equivalent of a graduate-level seminar on what illegal immigration really is, and as importantly, what it's not.

We know the crossers are a religious bunch, because of the Catholic medallions, statues and Bibles they drop, and we know they're superstitious. The litter almost always includes garlic cloves: Illegals hang them from backpacks in the false belief that the scent will keep rattlesnakes away from their campsites.

Some call illegal aliens "undocumented," but the truth is they have documents falling out of their pockets, literally. Examine the ground, and you'll find driver's licenses, birth certificates and passports, most of them forged.

From the Pokémon backpacks, diapers and infant formula, we know the crossers include children. But their debris is often mixed with tequila bottles and pornography. Another item sure to boil the blood: Spanish-language books advising illegals on their rights in the United States.

Less common—but surprisingly present—is evidence that our border has become an international crossing.

As I've reported previously in these pages, we know Arabs are coming, from the discovery of three prayer rugs near Douglas and an Arabic diary inside a backpack in Hereford.

A while back, I got an e-mail about a pair of Russian night-vision goggles found near Sonoita. Best guess? They were probably left by drug smugglers.

Consider, too, the ugly reality of the rape tree, often found at dump sites. The coyotes who lead groups into the country will sometimes peel a woman out of the group, rape her and hang her panties from a tree as a kind of trophy.

I guess the illegal aliens aren’t into “green” border crossing.

But the "dim's" love them anyway because the illegals are anti-Constitutional law too.

These sites are called “layups” in the coyote business. The illegals hole up at these sites to wait for their rides farther into the U.S. They change from hiking clothes into street clothes and then dump their belongings so they can cram as many illegals as possible into the waiting vehicles.

Arizonans should take bulldozers and round this krap up and dump it in the middle of the nearest bridge across to Mexico blocking it off until they decide to deal with their own trash and feces!

I agree that Floridians should help Arizonions do this.
All of us in the USA should help Arizona.

Are you offering to organize a bunch of people to do this?
If not, why not?

Those willing to volunteer to help pick up trash should call the BLM’s Tucson field office at 258-7200. Those interested in helping ADEQ can call Frank Zadroga, ADEQ’s waste program manager in Tucson, at 628-6951.

I’m hooking up with BLM this fall to go on a clean-up mission.

My first thought was what a waste of good back paks.

(I am a collector of canvas tote bags)

So much for recycling.

And where are the enviromentalists?

One serious suggestion would be to take photos of it all, and the as many truck loads as you can haul to bring to the nearest Federal Immigration Building, or the Congress or White House. Or the next Tea Party rally - either local or national.

The author had to take a stab at Catholics.
Although I took it as he was being sarcastic.

I mentioned to a young man the other day who was hispanic and wearing some sports jacket with a name on the front (his home country/town or race I dont know) and on the back he had the Virgen Mary or as better known to hispanics as OUr Lady of Guadalupe.

So I commented on it...Hey you have the Blessed Mother on your back..
LOL He got real tough guy with me (a old chick) and said THIS IS MY CULTURE where I am from.

I said yeah but you have the blessed Mother on your back.

Oh he said calming down now The Lady of Guadalupe?
Yes She is Our Blessed Mother.

Totally off guard now and mumbles oh I dont know about that part.

LOL Obviously not so Catholic and using the Graphic as part of his Culturally Cool Jacket.

Then his girlfriend came along and he couldn’t get away from me and me fast enough.

Point being how many hispanics wear Catholic medals ects and dont have a Catholic clue.

And a photo of the biggest waste dump of all ... the one just outside of Mexico City where thousands live on garbage pits.

If you have taken a train in Mexico City, you know what I mean as it passes right through it.

Coming to our cities.

If I had a bulldozer, I’d be headed out. But alas, my tool shed doesn’t sport one.

It’s certainly something to suggest to Arizona organizers.

How many feet of fence would 11 tons a day build? Seems like it could be built in no time. Just think of them crawling through their own trash and feces trying to get here.

Well, if someone would put a bug in Sheriff Joe’s ear about using the ILLEGALS he has on hand to form work gangs to clean these areas up...That might be something to do...

Who knows, Pablo might just find his dirty pair of skivies he left there one night...Wardrobe problem solved!!!

Recycle the backpacks for school kids...The Dims would love that...We might not like it, but we can just say that it would be a neat idea to the Dims...Not like they don’t lie to us very much...

Just some random thoughts I have about this issue...

All very good ideas in concept, but they’re unable to do it. Cleaning up these dumps is a bio-hazzard. They’ve randomly tested many items from these sites and found all kind of communicable diseases. (e.g. Cholera) they pretty much have to destroy everything they remove.

Backpacks are dumped as clothes are used up- change clothes throw away dirties and when backpack is empty then throw it away. Backpacks found near roads are a different deal- drugs are packed in backpacks and then when drugs are loaded into vehicle backpacks are thrown away.

There are BP regularly in those areas, the numbers of illegals are overwhelming. Border Patrol gathers a bunch- then they need to be transported and paperwork done. If any need any sort of medicial attention then an agent must accompany them to the hospital and stay with them. It seems there are plenty of Border Patrol, but doing things the way it has to be done takes a lot of agents. What ends up happening is if a group is found then dealing with that group ties up many Border Patrol so many more illegals get away.

Wellthen I’ll be happy to drive a bulldozer and push this stuff up in a big pile and burn it for a fee of course...

Half now, and half upon completion of the project...

But naturally I’ll be disqualified because I am not a minority owned business, and that I will not be allowed to do this because of the impact my efforts will have on the environment...

Never mind that the garbage is a “bio-hazard” to begin with...;-)

One of those moments that expose the real agenda of professional environmentalists, who insist that a border fence would be “devastating to the environment.” Really? More than this?

"Build the wall with their own crap. What a concept."

Use a car compactor to make the bales. The Garbage Wall could be a national tourist attraction. So we would need a Picasso or a Dali to make some garbage murals for a traveling exhibit to popularize the project.

Well, there's 12,000 tons of it ... 11 per day ... that works out to ... call it even, three years of work on the nose. If we can get it, sounds good. But yeah, how much could we build in one day with 11 tons?

“That needs to be on highway bill boards all across the country.”

I’d ideally love to see at least 20 pounds of this stuff packed up and mailed to every member of Congress and Governor who’s opposed to immigration reform.

I can think of few things as smelling and disgusting as opening a box of these debris. Enclosed along with the debris would be a picture of where the debris were picked up from.

The shock value might be enough to wake up a few people in DC.

... The Los Angeles Times in 2004 described the Sierra Club’s financial stake in keeping silent on immigration. The paper disclosed Carl Pope’s close ties to a California philanthropist who linked his generosity to his own open-border philosophy. David Gelbaum, whose donation of $101.5 million “dwarfed all previous individual contributions to the club” according to the Times, denied that he had manipulated the board’s position on immigration policy but acknowledged that he had made Pope aware of his preference for an expansive immigration policy.

Gelbaum traced those beliefs to his grandfather Abraham, an immigrant who had fled the persecution of Jews in Ukraine. And so, as he said to the Times, “I did tell Carl Pope in 1994 or 1995 that if they ever came out anti-immigration, they would never get a dollar from me.”31 Gelbaum’s respect for his grandfather had set him against those who tried to stir concern for the world being shaped for his grandchildren...

It is illegal to send biological waste thru the US postal service. Oh, and one bug in there, you are talking serious fines.
