More Border Insecurity, Mexican Gangs Use Arizona Hills As Lookout Bases

Let's review: Federal land in Arizona is essentially ceded to Mexican drug gangs by the Obama Administration, Arizona Police are threatened by these gangs, Fisherman are terrorized on Falcon Lake in Texas, and Falcon Dam was targeted for destruction by a Mexican drug cartel.

Now comes the story from Arizona that Mexican gangs are using the hills of Arizona as permanent lookout bases (Fox News).
Mexican drug cartels have set up shop on American soil, maintaining lookout bases in strategic locations in the hills of southern Arizona from which their scouts can monitor every move made by law enforcement officials, federal agents tell Fox News.
The scouts are supplied by drivers who bring them food, water, batteries for radios -- all the items they need to stay in the wilderness for a long time.

“To say that this area is out of control is an understatement," said an agent who patrols the area and asked not to be named. "We (federal border agents), as well as the Pima County Sheriff Office and the Bureau of Land Management, can attest to that.”

Much of the drug traffic originates in the Menagers Dam area, the Vekol Valley, Stanfield and around the Tohono O’odham Indian Reservation. It even follows a natural gas pipeline that runs from Mexico into Arizona.

In these areas, which are south and west of Tucson, sources said there are “cartel scouts galore” watching the movements of federal, state and local law enforcement, from the border all the way up to Interstate 8.

“Every night we’re getting beaten like a pinata at a birthday party by drug, alien smugglers," a second federal agent told Fox News by e-mail. "The danger is out there, with all the weapons being found coming northbound…. someone needs to know about this!”

The agents blame part of their plight on new policies from Washington, claiming it has put a majority of the U.S. agents on the border itself. One agent compared it to a short-yardage defense in football, explaining that once the smugglers and drug-runners break through the front line, they're home free.
It doesn't help either, that the Obama Regime and the terrorist friendly Eric Holder, have declared war on Arizona and their fight against these foreign invaders.

Mexican Gangs Have Easy USA Access Day & Night – San Miguel Gate on Tohono Indian Reservation Has Been Easy Access For 100′s Of Years (

Mexican Gangs Have Easy USA Access Day & Night – San Miguel Gate on Tohono Indian Reservation Has Been Easy Access For 100′s Of Years.

The Mexican Gangs have set up bases in the USA, but the real story is how open the border is for daily supplies that run day and night for Mexican Gangs in the USA. This 75 mile stretch of US Border, in this remote location as large as the State of Connecticut, on the Tohono Reservation extends to the Goldwater Gunnery Range at Gila Bend. But, on the Tohono Indian Reservation, a five-strand barbed-wire fence is all that separates the United States and Mexico in this remote southeastern corner of America’s second-largest Indian nation. The US Border Patrolhas had limited U.S. law enforcement is checking documents as people move back and forth at a crossing.

Now this steel cattle guard, known as the San Miguel Gate is running like a open water line. Tohono O’odham tribal police are frustrated due to Mexican Gangs paying unemployed Tohono Indians smuggling fees for the 45 minute truck across the border. In addition, in the Sonora Desert region the mountains provide a lookout now on the US side for these gangs.
