Vekol Valley Illegal Immigration Patrol: Monsoon season is upon us. . . .

Our illegal alien patrols are becoming more frequent as we continue to draw in more volunteers. I never thought that with a little publicity, we would have so many people from around the country wanting to get involved. It’s comforting to know that there are still Americans that care enough about their country to walk away from their TV’s, pick up a rifle and come out to the 110 degree Arizona desert.

Monsoon season has arrived and even with a few scattered storms, nobody seemed to mind getting a little wet. The rain was actually refreshing. The Sonoran Desert National Monument is an amazing place.

Without popular support, we would be nothing. I want to thank everyone that has participated or given us support. The time is overdue to take back our park lands.

On a recent patrol, I saw something I have not seen in almost two decades of visiting the Vekol Valley. Believe it or not, law enforcement was actually patrolling on Vekol Road. It was obvious to me that the drug cartels were not in control on that day.

Local Medical Examiners See Jump In Suspected Illegal Immigrants

PIMA COUNTY, Ariz. -- There are a group of lockers in a storage room in the Pima County Medical Examiner's building. Those lockers are full of the personal belongings of those who died trying to cross the U.S. -Mexico border.

Dr. Bruce Parks is left to dig through the piles and try to piece together their story. He's the chief medical examiner in Pima County. He sees the body of every suspected illegal immigrant who dies during the journey from Mexico to south-central Arizona.

Being completely unprepared is what does them in. Recently, we discovered cloves of garlic in one backpack. I guess that was supposed to ward of evil spirits or who knows what. On an other occasion somebody left tablets of Sedalmerck behind. Each tablet contains 500 mg Acetaminophen + 10 mg Caffeine + 5mg Pseudoephedrine. “Amped up” on a hot day with limited water is a sure ticket to an untimely death.

As many as 11 stolen vehicles that were previously discovered were being hauled out of the desert. A large truck passed by with a beat up Ford F-250 on the back. Ford F-250’s appear to be the load vehicle of choice among smugglers.

As the Fourth of July weekend approaches we are all reminded of what the United States is all about. An irate group of armed men united and defeated the largest empire on Earth. That just goes to show what a few motivated individuals and their rifles can do. Without men like them, there would be no United States of America.

“All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move.” --Benjamin Franklin
