Feds Admit Parts of Arizona in Mexican Drug Cartel Control

The Washington Times reports that the Bureau of Land Management has posted signs along a 60-mile stretch of Interstate 8 between Casa Grande and Gila Bend, a major east-west corridor linking Tucson and Phoenix with San Diego. The signs warn travelers hat they are entering an "active drug and human smuggling area" and they may encounter "armed criminals and smuggling vehicles traveling at high rates of speed." Beginning less than 50 miles south of Phoenix, the signs encourage travelers to "use public lands north of Interstate 8" and to call 911 if they "see suspicious activity.".

This is more than 100 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border and a local sheriff says Mexican drug cartels now control some parts of the state.

Meanwhile our commander in chief sends thirty three troops to put a stop to the invasion of our nation. What a sad state of affairs.
