4,610 in 14 days for one of the smallest border patrol stations in a town that doesn't show up on most maps. It's also the station closest to my home.
Most of my buds on the Border Patrol say they only catch between 20 to 35% of the border crossers. That means about 10,000 got away in that same two-week period.
Now a couple of notes of interest for the home team here in Sierra Vista. The "Border Fire" on the San Pedro River burned out most of the natural cover and concealment along that first mile or so north of the border fence, so the coyotes are gonna have to shift their passengers to other areas.
The most likely choice will be through Coronado National Memorial and then follow the canyons into town. It was already happening, but it looks like it is getting worse. Sad to say, but I found two more trails out of Fort Huachuca this evening and followed them to the pick up points in town.

Passed through Douglas about two weeks ago, spent the night there. To describe for others, the last few miles into town from the west parallel an abandoned railroad track. The RR grade is only about 100 yards north of the border and the landscape is flat as a frying pan, totally devoid of cover.
Yet, as evening was coming on, the Border Patrol had already rounded up enough illegals to make three or four groups of 10-12, about one group per mile, and had them under guard on the RR embankment -- waiting for the bus.
One can only imagine what the traffic must be like in more remote areas, and at night.
