your tax dollars at work

Driving around the other day we ran into a road side stop by the US Border Patrol.............we were going the other way so we were not involved in the inspection. This stop was about 30 miles from the Mexican border. But let me say this department of the U S Government is serious and they mean business.

I don't know what is set aside in the new budget for Homeland Security but this is the newest state of the art detention center for the US Border Patrol built here in Wilcox, AZ. I am still surprised at the size of this center and what the needs are going to be. We were not able to get close enough for really good photos but you should see the razor wire around the top of the fencing.

Mr Doodles and I have spent a lot of time in Mexico however that was a few years ago. This is as close as I am gonna get to Mexico due to there horrible drug problems. We have a border crossing story, actually we had two incidents I'll share with you's a scary story...............had nightmares over it for awhile.

But rest assured any border town on the US/Mexico border is not doing the brisk business that they have in the past. It's sad because boy shopping is great along those border towns as well as the food in the restaurants. Oh well those were the good old days.

Gee, I wonder who they are expecting? Are we going to war with Mexico? They don't have oil, oh, that was the other administration; nevermind.
