I just read this article about all of the trash that illegal immigrants are leaving on the Arizona border.
Here are the quick facts:
- There are approximately 25,000,000 lbs of trash in the desert
- That’s about 8 lbs of trash per illegal immigrant
- The trash includes water bottles, sweaters, jeans, razors, soap, medications, food, ropes, batteries, cell phones, radios, homemade weapons and human waste
- The five-year tab is $62.9 million for all forms of environmental remediation for immigration-related damage across Southeast Arizona
Outrageous! All this is going to do is continue to lower property values and stimy tourism in those areas.
