Default Migrant trash piles up at remote U.S.-Mexico border areas

Here is yet another example of the destruction left in the wake of illegal immigration.

Migrants used to follow the washes or follow the roads or utility poles," said Robin Hoover, founder of the Tucson-based non-profit Humane Borders.

"Now they're having to move farther and farther from the middle of the valleys," he added. "They end making more camp sites and cutting more trails when they do that, and, unfortunately ... leave more trash."

Those making the punishing march carry food, water and often a change of clothes on the trek through remote desert areas that can take several days.
Of course it is necessary to ignore this problem, funding for the clean up shows another benefit of the wall.

With limited funding for clean up, Arizona environmental authorities draw on volunteers to help in drives like the one near Rio Rico, where an estimated 140 volunteers including residents, community and youth groups took part on Saturday.

Clean up efforts since 2008 by the department of environmental quality have included pulling 42 tons of trash from 160 acres of Cocopah tribal lands in far western Arizona, and clean ups at least seven sites on ranches and public land in areas south of Tucson.
A wall would force immigration paths into legal ports of entry instead of allowing smugglers to choose where they want to trash the US.

What is a 30 something year old single man with a rock in one hand and a Honduran flag in the other?

An asylum seeker.
