My continued patrol of the Haley Hills area has yielded zero UDA’s. I think the heat and mosquitoes are keeping them away from here. I have explored and traveled this area for over 15 years and have become what I call a “self-appointed warden“. Having looked over police and sheriff’s logs, It appears that many UDA’s are apprehended during routine traffic stops. In any event, I’ve have been able to take a few photographs depicting the local scenery. My trips to the desert are never “wasted trips”.
The local melon/cantaloupe picking operation ended nearly a month ago. The illegal alien population usually spikes during the produce seasons. Once the crops are picked, they along with the trouble they cause, move to the next agricultural region.
While the Pew Hispanic Research Center http://www.pewhispanic.org/ reported a 60% decrease between March 2008 and March 2009, the Center for Immigration Studies http://www.cis.org/, found that illegal immigrants have dropped by a third in Arizona. Maybe this is due in part to a July 27th Arizona Republic http://www.arizonarepublic.com/ report that a "Slow economy spells little work for day laborers" in central Arizona. In fact, five days prior, the newspaper reported that the Macehualli Work Center in Northeast Phoenix is in dire need of funding to supplement what it receives from Chicanos por la Causa.

According to Taxpayer Revolution, 84 hospitals, 65 emergency rooms and more than 70 acute care hospitals have closed in California in the last 10 years. There was $8.6 billion in unreimbursed emergency care costs in 2007 alone. Then there are the hidden costs. How much does AFDC send to Mexico each month to mothers of anchor babies with US citizenship?
Just friendly immigrants coming to the United States to make a better life for themselves?
Since 1919, 108 Border Patrol agents have died on duty, according to The Officer Down Memorial Page Inc. http://www.odmp.org/ Gunfire was the leading cause with 30 deaths, followed by automobile accidents and aircraft accidents.

Update: Shortly after posting this entry, I observed some of the Bonefields returning home on foot. One of the subjects was a male juvenile. They did have their dogs on leashes this time. (Thanks to my previous actions.) I did notice that they were carrying melons. I suspect they stole them from the farm across the road. Perhaps I should go out and buy some more locks. A parent teaching a kid how to steal tells me just what caliber of lowlife people live around me.
