Southern Arizona

I’m just back from travelling round Southern Arizona: from Tucson to Willcox, Tombstone to Bisbee, then west to Patagonia and Nogales. It’s difficult to form any conclusions regarding what the locals think about the migrant problem. Down in Bisbee there are plenty of posters supporting the Nomoredeaths campaign but elsewhere no obvious signs. Something may be changing though. Surveillance of the desert is currently carried out by a mixture of  Border Patrol checkpoints, helicopters and drones. However the latest idea is cameras mounted on towers. The cost benefits are obvious but of course these camera will be spying on everyone despite  Border patrol denials. The signs are that the locals don’t fancy the government monitoring their every move.
