Photos of Trash in the Arizona Desert Left Behind by Illegal Immigrants-Truth!

Summary of the eRumor:  
This is an email that says it is an "Eye Opener" from the Sonoran Desert in Arizona with photos of trash covered landscape.   The email says 3000 backpacks, clothes, food wrappers, water bottles and soiled baby diapers were discarded by illegal aliens along a trail leading North to Tucson from the Mexican border.

The Truth:  
The photos were taken in 2007 by members of the Minute Man Civil Defense Corps, a border watchdog group, who discovered the litter while they were in the Sonoran Desert just South of Tucson, Arizona.  The scene is what the Minute Man group called a "layup," an area where illegal immigrants gather when they have reached the U.S. and where they will meet with those who have arranged for transportation for them. They typically have backpacks full of clothing, food, and other supplies for their long trek to or across the U.S. border but when they arrive, they change into a clean set of clothes and leave everything else behind because there is not enough room in the packed vehicles used to transport them.   

This eRumor began circulating in 2007 and went viral again in the Spring of 2010, after organized protests and boycotts to an Arizona Immigration Bill.  The photos are being passed on by supporters as one of the many reasons why they justify the Grand Canyon State's tough new law.

The photos and commentary are posted on the Minute Man Civil Defense web site.

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:

 

Version 1:

Sent to me by a friend who lives in Arizona.

We, in Arizona, know you're boycotting us -- but you really should come out here and see our beautiful Sonoran Desert. It's just gorgeous right now!  We know you'd love it and maybe you can share what you saw with the rest of the country so they can love it too!

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 and then onto the sea!

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 Yosemite, 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 New York Times newspaper. Nor will they mention the disease that comes from the uncovered human waste left in our desert. However, with respect to national media, they do offer us "Special Reports" on cheating celebrity spouses....
This information needs to be seen by the rest of the country.

 

Version2:

HERE IS A REAL EYE OPENER FOR YOU.
Another Monster Layup/Rest Area Discovered by CDC ARIZONA SEARCH & RESCUE

We breathed a sigh of relief the day the Senate defeated the Amnesty Bill, but the USA is still being invaded! We discovered one of the biggest layups we have ever found.

This layup is on an 'illegal super - highway' from Mexico to the USA (Tucson) used by human smugglers.

This layup area is located in a wash area approximately .5 of a mile long just south of Tucson.

We estimate there are over 3000 discarded back packs in this layup area. Countless water containers, food wrappers, clothing, and soiled baby diapers. And as you can see in this picture, fresh footprints leading right into it. We weren't too far behind them.

As I kept walking down the wash, I was sure it was going to end just ahead, but I kept walking and walking, and around every corner was more and more trash!

And of course the trail leading out of the layup area heading NORTH to Tucson, then on to your town tomorrow.

They've already come through here. Is this America the Beautiful ?

Or another landfill?

The trash left behind by the illegals is another of the Environmental Disasters to hit the USA. Had this been done in one of our great Northwest Forests or Seashore National Parks areas there would be an uprising of the American people........but this is remote Arizona-Mexican border. You won't see these pictures on CNN, ABC, NBC or the Arizona Repugnant. Nor will they mention the disease that comes from the human waste left in the desert. They do talk about light bulbs a lot though...
