Yet, the objection to the wall was because it would harm wildlife by impeding their movement across both borders. Sounds like the environmental harm due to an unprotected border that allows these illegals to cross and dump their trash everywhere should be the real concern.

How about the health impact illegal aliens have bringing diseases that were once stamped out here decades ago back?

No real environmentalist is for open borders and unlimited immigration -- yet many on the left pretend to care about the environment while doing all they can to increase the population at extremely high rates and destroy what's left of open spaces to accomodate the massive influx of people with high birth rates from third world regions.

Default Arizona creates website to clean up illegal alien trash

It's about dam time...

Quote:
The state of Arizona has just created a website to draw attention to the enormous amount of garbage that is discarded along the Arizona-Mexico border by those crossing into this country illegally. The website, azbordertrash.gov, is also asking for volunteers to assist in cleanup efforts along the border.
The website states: “An estimated more than 2,000 tons of trash is discarded annually in Arizona's borderlands," the website reads. "A variety of federal and state government entities, Native American tribes and private landowners are affected by the problem, and addressing it requires extensive coordination.”
According to the website, the average illegal crosser leaves behind about eight pounds of trash in the desert as they make their way into the United States.

I'm so sorry Mouser, I doubled posted a same topic thread. I haven't been in here in a while and thought it was not added.

Gods of city-data, please delete mine?

http://www.city-data.com/forum/illeg...p-illegal.html

On topic: Everytime I see the photos and read about this defamation of American soil, my blood boils at the disrespect of beauty. No regard whatsoever for cleanliness with a promotion for spreading disease with an increase of disease carrying rodents.

This should be distributed in Washington so they may notice...hopefully.

Are there volunteers? Is anyone brave enough to?

This is the way they act when they're JUST over the border, yet we are expected to believe once "settled" into the USA they'll act differently?
