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.

The MSM continues to ignore the huge problems, including violence, at the Mexican border.

Weakness by America does NOT create peace.

Illegals own American park because government will not enforce the law.

As I mentioned elsewhere, several thousand men out there with guns, hunting “rabbits” might make a difference. What would be REALLY interesting would be if the American “hunters” were arrested and taken off by the Feds so that the drug traffickers could continue to do their thing unimpeded. Bottom line: we have ceded American territory to a foreign army. Our government is incompetent/has been bought off. When are people going to man up and do something about it?

Americans that live near this park must be going through hell! It must be a 24/7 fight to stay alive and protect land.

It’s hard to believe that American law enforcement forces know this and allow it to happen.

Where is the Government?

Is this the Obama Hope and Change?? That we cannot even be safe in our own country?

We are and it is. Most of the U.S. is clueless as to the danger we face daily and nightly.

Impeach that fool in white hut. If he’s not willing to defend our borders then we need someone who will.

Enforce the damn laws. If we’re facing armed illegals causing violence - shoot them. Enough with this already.

The immigration law was a beginning, also, AZ is proposing not to issue birth certificates to babies born of illegals in AZ. She faces an election in November, I think she’ll get reelected easily.

I think they made an error. It is 118,000 acres in size.

The original report that I heard on Monday, I believe, put the line north of Tuscon.
