What Illegal Immigration And Drug Smuggling Is Doing To The Southwest's Wildlife

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Back in April I brought you a story about some of the effects the illegals from Mexico were having on wild game habitat in the southwest and what one group was doing to help in cleaning up the tons of trash being left behind by the illegals.

Today Tom Kenworthy has a story complete with photographs of what is happening in Arizona, especially in the wildlife refuges. The added manpower being used for security and the expenses of cleaning up abandoned vehicles and destruction to the property, is robbing time and money that should be spent on managing wildlife.

Kenworthy doesn’t go so far as to offer remedies, he does seem to paint a fairly accurate picture I think.
