US Land Off Limits to Americans...
The Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge and 3,500 acres consisting of a 80 miles stretch along the southern Arizona and the Mexican border is closed to U.S. citizens due to increased violence in the region.
This really isn't news. It was closed in October 2006 "due to human safety concerns," the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Wednesday in response to news reports on the closure.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife officials have warned visitors in Arizona to beware of heavily armed drug smugglers and human traffickers.
"The situation in this zone has reached a point where continued public use of the area is not prudent," said refuge manager Mitch Ellis.
The refuge, that is more like a people eroded dump, has been adversely affected by the increase in drug smugglers, illegal activity and surveillance, which makes it dangerous for Americans to visit....why would you?
Signs have been posted warning Americans not to cross into the closed off territory south of Interstate 8. Arizona needs more resources to help scale back the violence caused by the drug cartels.
We need action! It’s shameful that we, as the most powerful nation on Earth, … can’t even secure our own border and protect our nation. If North Korea, Iraq, China or any other country was invading the USA by thousands a day, armed with guns and willing to kill....things would be much different. Why aren't they today?
