    PHOENIX -- Trucks packed full with border crossers. Smugglers carrying guns. Others carrying drugs.
    Those are just a few of the videos recorded by two websites documenting the activities on Arizona's border in the past two months.
    "Not only is it realistic, this happens on a daily basis," said Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu.
    Armed with small hidden cameras, SecureBorderIntel.org and BorderInvasionPics.com have logged hours of video and thousands of undocumented immigrants and drug runners.
    The websites' creators say they are looking to bring awareness to "the magnitude of the problem."
    Pinal County is one of the major routes for human and drug smugglers. Babeu says these videos provide an accurate glimpse into what his deputies see.

    Arizona Border Encounter Gets Political
    Jan. 29, 2007
    Excerpt
    Four National Guard soldiers from Tennessee were at a lookout post at the border when they were approached by six to eight gunmen wearing bulletproof vests. One of the gunmen came within 35 feet of the observation site, according to investigators’ summaries.
    The soldiers contacted Border Patrol agents and pulled back, investigators concluded. The Border Patrol tracked the armed men back to the border but could not locate them. No shots were fired.
    Democratic Gov. Janet Napolitano, National Guard officials and some state lawmakers defended the decision to call in the Border Patrol, saying the troops are not supposed to perform law enforcement duties. The governor’s office has said the rules allow Guard members to use force when they believe they face an imminent threat and all other means are exhausted.
    “I don’t think that it’s up to the committee to negotiate the rules of engagement,” Napolitano said. “Those rules of engagement were negotiated with the National Guard at the federal level.”
    The troops were among the 6,400 National Guard members sent to the four southern border states to support immigration agents, and leave the agents with more time to catch illegal immigrants.
    The support duties include monitoring border points, assisting with cargo inspection and operate surveillance cameras.
    “We don’t apprehend,” said Maj. Paul Aguirre, a spokesman for the Arizona National Guard. “We don’t detain. We don’t transport.”

    When are people going to realize that Mexico is not our friend?

    Either build the wall or declare war on Mexico, invade and claim it as our 51st state. (58th if you're Barack Obama)

    Mexico is just too corrupt to police itself.

    First post...

    In response to going to war with Mexico, I believe if that were to ever happen, we would have to fight a civil was as well. The Mexican community would undoubtedly raise arms against the very country they seek citizenship from.
