I had walked into Mexico to check out this Coke Bottle.. it was cold! This was in the summer.. My truck is in the USA. Secure border? NOT! I walked back into the USA quickly.

I am standing on one of the border monuments.. I am on the Mexican side.. No security here at all.. just a monument telling you the border is here.. this is just a few miles west of Nogales.

This is about 4 miles north of the border in some mountains.. This young man, and numerous with him, were "hiding" from me.. they had walked across the unsecured border east of Nogales.. All I could do was call Border Patrol.

This Mexican on horseback was probably a Cartel Scout.. he and his dogs came marching up from the Mexico side obviously curious about us.. His dogs, and maybe the front half of the horse are in the USA.. there is a barb wire fence nearby. That is the border monument you see in the distance.
This is not far west of Nogales, AZ

This is about 10 miles east of Nogales on the Arizona/Mexico border.. you can see well-worn trails leading into the USA.. a so-called "Auto barrier" on the far side.. a barb wire fence on this side of the ditch.. really zero security.

This is a gate on the border barb wire fence.... and a well-worn trail leading out of Mexico. We asked the border patrol if they were aware of this gate... they were not.

This is looking north along the east side of New Mexico's boot heel.. you can see the border corner monument (#40) in the distance, and on the GPS.. nothing but broken down barb wire on this border... at least 100 miles of no border fence other than barb wire.

Our ridiculously wide open New Mexico border with Mexico.
That is Mexico to the right (south) of the barb wire fence.

This is a "new secure fence" not far west of Columbus, NM.
I have walked onto the Mexican side.. ridiculous! Our tax money at work!

Illegal aliens running back to Mexico.. they have no idea who I am in my truck.. but of course they returned as soon as we were gone. This is on the Indian Reservation in Arizona.
They are holding their "black" water bottles prepared for a lengthy trek!

I am standing in Arizona taking this photo with a telephoto lens.. a cartel group.. some sitting on bales of pot. We could see some have guns.. They must be waiting for something on the USA side.. amazing they have no fear at all of being seen.. they are aware there is no real security.. it is instead, a game.

My Indian Guide who I hired to escort me along about 60 miles of border.. that is the border fence he is standing at.. we never saw border patrol on the entire 5 or 6-hour drive.. My driving the border should have inspired curiosity from border agents, but it did not here and rarely ever does.

I have hiked past the end of one of the tall border fences.. you can see the tall fence in the distance.. I have walked a short ways into Mexico.. beyond the end of the tall fences is virtually nothing.. the tall fences appear to be just for "show" to suggest to Americans the border is fenced... to suggest the border is secure. We asked a border patrol agent about going past the fence end but staying in the USA.. he said yes we could, but said if we do we should be armed as we may run into armed Mexicans.
