Today’s patrol/field trip. . .Haley Hills

Maricopa 101: A study of geology, anthropology and human smuggling. I originally set out this morning to locate stray dogs that have been killing livestock. I found no signs of these animals and decided to make my way out to an area commonly known as a lay up area. These are places where human smugglers stash illegal aliens before transporting them to another location such as a drop house in Phoenix. These areas are most easily identified by litter and human feces.

This place in particular was also home to millions of mosquitoes. Apparently, these insects prefer Mexican food as I somehow managed to avoid being bitten. I would be wishing I were back in Mexico after spending a night at this place. Human smugglers (their fellow countrymen) see their “human cargo” as nothing more than a load. They could care less if they are left to drink filthy water in a mosquito infested area. Hell, even if they die, there’s more where they came from.

I’m sure the “Wetback Store” on the other side of the border doesn’t stock bug spray. For those unfamiliar with illegal border crossing, merchants in Mexico operate stores that cater to people intent on coming to the United States via unlawful means. These stores sell shoes, backpacks, water jugs and other items deemed necessary for the long trip through the desert.

Haley Hills is a mountain summit in Pinal County in the state of Arizona (AZ). Haley Hills climbs to 1,890 feet (576.07 meters) above sea level. Haley Hills is located at latitude - longitude coordinates (also called lat - long coordinates or GPS coordinates) of N 32.967828 and W -112.180422.
Anyone attempting to climb Haley Hills and reach the summit should look for detailed information on the Haley Hills area in the topographic map (topo map) and the Haley Hills USGS quad. To hike and explore the Arizona outdoors near Haley Hills, check the list of nearby trails.
What are the Haley Hills and why are they so important?
The Haley Hills -- a small mountain range and box canyon -- is located in northwestern Pinal County in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona. While not as large or well known as some of the surrounding ranges such as the Sierra Estrella and the Superstitions, it is still an ecologically significant area of public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), a subdivision of the United States Department of Interior. Rural mini-ranches and small farms skirt its outlying fringes to the north, east, and south. The Vekol Wash
If the human smugglers and illegal aliens continue using this area, it will most certainly be destroyed. This is one of the few places I’ve found that has water and is still heavily treed.

Instead of bussing the illegal aliens that get caught back to Mexico, we should make them walk back so they can pick up all of the garbage they leave behind. What do you think they will do with their trash when they move next door to you? Well, you can look along my next door neighbor’s fence to get the answer to that question. Calling them “human pigs” is only insulting to pigs.
