This blew me out of the water when I read the story. Here are some highlights - In the last five years $4.4 million over five years to clean up the trash - In 2006 Illegal Immigrants left 1.18 million pounds of trash along the Arizona Border - Everything from wedding pictures to airplane tickets can be found in the piles So not only do we have a problem with illegals entering our country, they are polluting as the come in!!! You have to check out the article to look at the pictures, the Arizona border looks like a dump!,2933,354398,00.html

I had not even thought about that aspect but it figures as they are leaving home and sneaking illegally into our country. what a shame that they could not take the steps necessary to enter this country legally then they would not have to throw alltheir stuff away like that. I have no sympathy for those who are here illegally as they could so easily have just gone through the] paper work to come here legally.

This is a common problem. You will notice this happening in any developed country, maybe not at the border. Immigrants illegal or legal thier main priority and purpose is to earn money and leave. I certainly think they do not care. I have seen it even happening in offices as well..i guess it is up to the government to stop them though.. sry to anyone if i am being harsh but i have seen this happening from where i live..

i'm not surprised.i used to live in arizona and i had to pick up stuff in my yard all the time from them running through.they tore open my own trash the one time looking for god knows what.i hope it wasn't food,because it would have spoiled by that time.
