Posted on 06/16/2010 11:10:40 AM PDT by surroundedbyblue
About 3,500 acres of southern Arizona have been closed off to U.S. citizens due to increased violence at the U.S.-Mexico border, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The closed off area includes part of the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge that stretches along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu told Fox News that violence against law enforcement officers and U.S. citizens has increased in the past four months, forcing officers on an 80 mile stretch of Arizona land north of the Mexico border off-limits to Americans

What the Feds are saying - RETREAT!
Next, you’ll see shacks start to sprout up there.
Can one legally carry large pistols and semiauto rifles in the parkland??
You’re right. It’s the first step in ceding territory back to Mexico.
Ooooh, this infuriates me.
Just got into it this morning with some nutjob liblady on Facebook over AZ. She bleated the usual complaints (racist, unAmerican, “papers please”, wahhhhhh). Never gave one specific, never answered one of my assertions regarding the rights of the citizens of Arizona. But did a good job stomping off with her crayons when I pointed out that those opposing AZ have an agenda that is opposed to our laws & sovereignty.
They won’t build the fence. Not because it wouldn’t work, but because it would.
What's wrong with this picture??
Obama telling the governor to shove it?? What a bas****.
Any volunteers to defend America?....

Our government has ceded a part of U.S. territory to drug smugglers, and is warning Americans to stay out — of an area for which taxpayers provide the upkeep. What kind of cowards/traitors/incompetent boobs are running this show? What kind of a tin ear does it take to make public such a warning? Local, state and federal authorities: They have all given up and are just submitting to the drug traffickers. FOR SHAME. Several thousand men out there with guns, hunting “rabbits” might make a difference.
Alamo Closed; Sheriff decides to close the outpost due to violence against law enforcement officers and U.S. citizens.
Good opportunity to show a profit.
Have the Park Service sell open season hunting licenses to any (proven) citizen (Must wear special hat) and stipulate that the only game to be kulled must be two legged and larger than 3 feet tall and not wearing specified hat.
Instead of closing the area to US citizens, they should be sending troops...and I don't mean the National Guard.
This is the real reason for the second amendment;
And the reason the political class wants to eliminate the second amendment.
I agree...They should do a sweep then occupy part of it as a training facility. How about creating a base on part of the park??
...Or turn it into a bombing range.
Bet in a week you'll be able to walk around that park and fish in that lake just about any time you want.
Make no mistake about it.
This part of the United States is occupied by a foreign entity.
Let the Israelis settle there. It’ll be a thriving garden spot and tourist destination in 3 years.
“Make no mistake about it.
This part of the United States is occupied by a foreign entity.”
What a bunch of cowards we have in BrainWashington!
The entire area should be declared an open kill area. If you are there you are subject to being shot on sight. Signs in English should be posted along the border warning do not enter.
All northbound traffic will cease when there are bodies rotting in the desert.
A fence of whitening bones is the best deterrent.
America is falling like ancient Rome did to the Huns, Goths, Visigoths, Ostrogoths, and Vandals. If you study Roman history you’ll see our demise almost exactly like theirs except we are doing it better and quicker!

Who would stop the rabbit hunters?
The Feds are scared to send anyone out there.
Wherever John Wayne is now, if he gets wind of this he will be crying!
Well, yes. Since our government has abdicated its responsibility for the area, and by its own admission is no longer in control there, “rabbit” hunters, theoretically, should be able to do their thing with impunity.
Borer violence Ping
Well, I guess sanctuary cities will be next?
I wonder what effect some carefully directed vigilantism might have? Like, I dunno, maybe some strategically placed pyres built with the bodies of drug cartel and MS13 members along the border.
I think we need to open a 24 hour, large caliber, long range, (1000 yards and more,) rifle range on the property. Every five days, move the range to a unannounced new location.
I am curious..what sort of “fence” would keep out these invaders? Over at “borderinvasionpics.com” it seemed that they could get over any kind of fence that was unmanned. How hard is it to obtain dynamite in mexico? Are we talking about a concrete wall with wire, or something electrified?
Hope and Change!
Yes you can, but you’d be arrested more for going in there...
Ironically Obama signed the bill that allowed National Park Carry...
Thank you for the pings!
Hillary: Obama will sue Arizona over immigration-enforcement law
