Trashing Arizona 

This trash-filled wash is below Diablito Mountain, about 5 miles west of Interstate 19, southwest of Arivaca Junction. It is 21 miles north of the border at Nogales. The illegal aliens who dump their trash here have just emerged from the Tumacacori Highlands, which are also trashed out.
