I have seen the images and some of the text below quite some time in the past. Let’s say around a year ago. Today I received them in an email from a friend. The images and the text were not attributed, but I have left both as I received them. Any reader is welcome to draw whatever conclusion they will … or not draw any conclusion at all, if you wish and if you can keep from a conclusion hitting you in the rear. I did take the time to check this out on Snopes and the link to the Snopes piece will be found at the very bottom of this post.
This is on an ‘illegal super – highway’ from Mexico to the USA (Tucson) used by human smugglers.
This area is located in a wash, approximately 1.5 miles long, just south of Tucson, Arizona. If a flood came, all this would be washed to the river!
It is estimated over 5,000 discarded backpacks are in this wash. Countless water containers, food wrappers, clothing, feces, including thousands of soiled baby diapers. And as you can see in this picture, fresh footprints leading right into it.
As we kept walking down the wash, we thought for sure it was going to end, but around every corner was more and more trash!
And of course the trail leading out of the wash in our city, heads directly NORTH to Tucson, then leads to your town tomorrow.
They’ve already come through here. Isn’t Arizona just beautiful, America?
Why would you boycott us???
Our desert has basically been turned into a landfill.
The trash left behind by people illegally crossing our border is another Environmental Disaster to hit the USA.
If these actions had been done in one of our Northwest Forests or Seashore National Parks areas, there would be an uprising of the American people…..but this is the Arizona-Mexican border.
You won’t see these pictures on CNN, ABC, NBC or the Arizona Republic Repugnant newspaper. Nor will they mention the disease that comes from the uncovered human waste left in our desert.
However, with respect to CNN, ABC & NBC, they do offer us “Special Reports” on cheating celebrity spouses….
The above constitutes the end of the images and text I received today. Here is the link to the Snopes piece (2007, Updated May 2010) that actually provides more information.
Also in looking around in Zemanta (Link Below) I’ve found that a fellow who calls himself Chicago Ray has posted an article with the same images and text (with a bonus image at the head of his article.) Here is the link to his article and you’ll also find it below. A word of warning about Chicago Ray’s article it does have some expletives or risque language.
