U.S. Mexico Border is now SAFE — from Wildlife-Counting Biologists
In the Gardner Canyon area near Sonoita (just over the Arizona-Mexico border), a gang of armed-to-the-teeth-and-dumber-than-dirt militia members swooped in on some of them swarthy Meskins who were trying to sneak over the border.
Only trouble is, they weren't illegal immigrants sneaking into the country. As it turned out, these Rambo wannabes — riding ATVs and dressed in camouflage — were waving their guns at a group of biologists who were counting bats and other wildlife. DUUUHHH!!!
This article does not reflect on the people in this part of Arizona. The above-mentioned armed inbreds were all from Colorado — just looking for a little adventure and excitement on that there Meskin border. The local sheriff pointed out that the Gardner Canyon area is popular with campers and hikers — as well as biologists and conservationists — whose safety is jeopardized by these vigilantes. He said:
“These people are completely out of their environment. They really don’t know the area. They don’t know the terrain. They have little knowledge of the dynamics of the border. So it can be a real problem. We really don’t want them here...It can be a problem for them. It can be a problem for the people, just like in this particular case. Things could have gone terribly wrong. They really don’t accomplish anything. They really don’t. With about 1,000 Border Patrol Agents here in Santa Cruz County, a little group of any militiamen are not going to make any difference at all. As a matter of fact, they’re going to get in the way and they could get hurt. Or they could hurt somebody else.”
It's kind of like those signs you used to see at some auto repair shops: “Labor: $30 an hour. $45 an hour if you watch. $60 an hour if you help.”
