Re: “Over Stepping Bounds

On a related issue, Humane Borders operates a number of water stations for border crossers on public land (e.g., the Fish and Wildlife Service's Buenos Aires NWR). I am not able to find FWS's NEPA documentation for the permits for those water stations that were issued in 2010. Did FWS ever do an environmental impact statement or an environmental assessment for those water stations?

They'll do anything for money, I guess. Sure cheapens the science.

Re: “Over Stepping Bounds

OK, let's try this one more time.... NO ONE in the U.S. Border Patrol can legally give anyone "permission" to operate contrary to the law, regardless of any perceptions that No More Deaths organizers have or because of some highly-questionable unsigned written agreement.

Anyone providing aid, other than U.S. Border Patrol personnel in the course of their legal duties, is as guilty of exploitation by providing false hope as the Coyotes and smugglers who use these people for monetary gain, as opposed to self-serving do-gooders who get a warm and fuzzy feeling -- and a slight thrill -- from circumventing "the man" and the laws of this country.

Nevertheless, if people are determined to provide aid and comfort to illegal border crossers, may I suggest that you set up your desert aid stations on the south side of the border and see how you are received by the Mexican authorities.

Re: “High-Flying Chicken

All the buildup, all the "press" coverage, and the flight of ChickenShip One is scrubbed.
I'll be over at Arby's, awaiting updates.

Re: “High-Flying Chicken

Our tax dollars at work! Now Tucson has a true competitor to The Thing out east on I-10, although in terms of weirdness it will still have to compete with the Pima County Board of Soup Advisors.

Re: “Over Stepping Bounds

Yes, the illegal aliens did overstep some bounds for sure when they invaded our country.

Re: “Desert Ordeal

They need more people telling them not to come and we need border security that does not allow them to put themselves at risk. That would solve lots of problems. Instead bleeding hearts try to compartmentalize their thoughts and actions . This really doesn't serve anybody well.

Re: “Hispanic Chamber applauds Ducey education, business efforts

Shame on the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. None of Ducey's so-called education efforts benefit Hispanic children who are usually on the losing end of those educational cuts. He has done NOTHING to benefit children in need in gaining a good education.

Re: “No Thanks, Trump

Not true. And many anti illegal entrants are not anti immigrant. The problem with your reasoning is that for some reason you have compiled all of each side into one convenient group. There are still legal immigrant (hopefuls) waiting patiently in line to be allowed entrance, while those you seem to want to help jump the line, sneak under the fence and claim citizenship because "they got here."

We have a system in place, you have just been convinced to ignore it.

Re: “No Thanks, Trump

Wondering if these people who are so anti-immigrant are willing to go out into the fields and harvest
the many crops that these hard working labors do? Or wash dishes, mop floors?? These [so called]
illegal immigrants are essential to our economy. the only reason they are
[illegal] is because our federal government has become deadlocked and unable to improve our immigration policies.

Of course, Southern Arizona has always stood in full support of illegal immigration.

Re: “No Thanks, Trump

It doesn't matter what they are opposed to, if the president wants and succeeds in actually building this wall, their point is moot. Perhaps if they thought as highly of natural born American citizens rather than the law breaking illegal border crossers, they would be applauded!

Re: “Crop Conundrum

Just think and we throw away over half the food produced. Hire more H2A visa workers to grow more food to throw away now that is American democratic logic right there.

Ever see George Carlin and is routine on STUFF ? Americans need to get more house to get more stuff. Then when you get to much you rent room to store yourself stuff.

What the story didn't tell is Dole sold out all operations in Yuma to a Chinese firm ITOCHU. It is this firm that set the world price and market distribution of winter Lettuce.

Story is false news

Re: “No Thanks, Trump

Think you're pissed off now? Wait until next week when the Bored of Stupidvisors votes to give $2,000 of our tax dollars to some humane borders group to refill water jugs for people sneaking into the country. Even if we could afford it ( which we can't), that's nothing more than aiding and abetting. These stooges need to be ousted. Just don't hold your breath.
