We, in Arizona, know you're boycotting us -- but you really should come out here and see
our Beautiful Sonoran Desert.
It's just gorgeous right now! We know you'd love it and maybe you can share what you
saw with the rest of the country so they can love it too!
This is on an 'illegal super - highway' from Mexico to the USA (Tucson) used by human smugglers.
This area is located in a wash, approximately 1.5 miles long, just south of Tucson, Arizona. If a
flood came, all this would be washed to the river and then onto the sea!
It is estimated over 5,000 discarded backpacks are in this wash. Countless water containers,
food wrappers, clothing, feces, including thousands of soiled baby diapers. And as you can
see in this picture, fresh footprints leading right into it.
As we kept walking down the wash, we thought for sure it was going to end, but around
every corner was more and more trash!
And of course the trail leading out of the wash in our city, heads directly NORTH to Tucson,
then leads to your town tomorrow.
They've already come through here. Isn't Arizona just beautiful, America?
Why would you boycott us??? Our desert has basically been turned into a landfill.
The trash left behind by people illegally crossing our border is another Environmental Disaster to hit the USA.
If these actions had been done in one of our Northwest Forests or Seashore National Parks areas,
there would be an uprising of the American people.....but this is the Arizona-Mexican border.
