The federal government has posted signs along a major interstate highway in Arizona, more than 100 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, warning travelers the area is unsafe because of drug and alien smugglers, and a local sheriff says Mexican drug cartels now control some parts of the state.

They warn travelers that 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."

According to Libs and their rationale of late (Iraq War Defense), these signs mean nothing... there is no evidence of illegals, or illegals being dangerous. They're only signs. No need for action

Couple it with this story and you see this Administration's Grand Strategy to protect our borders.

Arizona Now Has ‘Whopping 30’ National Guard Troops and 15 Billboard Signs Warning Citizens About Drug Cartels Operating on Public Lands

Bureau of Land Management sign in Arizona, "DANGER - PUBLIC WARNING, TRAVEL NOT RECOMMENDED, Visitors May Encounter Armed Criminals and Smuggling Vehicles Traveling at High Rates of Speed."

(CNSNews.com) – Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said requests by Arizona law enforcement personnel and Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) for 3,000 National Guard troops along the state’s border with Mexico have been answered so far with 1 percent of that number deployed there this week.

Does anyone else find this frightening? That we have signs acknowledging that an area of the United States is unsafe because of foreign invasion? What on earth is going on????

Nothing to worry about MaggieD, Obi has it all under his control.

He & Holder are preparing to zap AZ's law protecting the border, they're investigating Arpaio, the Hollyweirdites, and Left wing elitists are boycotting AZ... these folks know better. Much better.

Before long we'll have given large tracts to Mexico and have apologized for being awful neighbors. (That's what these signs indicate).
Perhaps Obi will bow to top off the show.

And now... for your viewing pleasure... Obama's capitulation to the Mehikana's... sponsored by... Taco Bell, Pepsi, Cheetos, aaaaaand the Mehikana Drug Cartels.

This is what happens when you have an Anti-American, inept, amateur, in the White House who cares more about his ideology than the rule of law. He has ignored the Constitution repeatedly, and violated his oath in the process.

Everything Obama has done and is doing is not in our best interest.

It is evidence that prohibition is an abject failure and the problems will continue so long as we maintain the same failed policy, but if you want to claim it was the evil liberals go ahead.. it was the evil conservatives too, I didn't see that border getting sealed prior to Obama getting into office.

It gets old watching one side blame the other and do nothing but continue to divide everyone into us versus them when both sides are equally screwed up and equally at fault.

Gov. candidates in 20 states endorse anti-immigration laws - Carrie Budoff Brown - POLITICO.com

of the 9 republicans named by ms brown, 6 are well ahead, barnes in georgia, bentley in alabama, walker in wisconsin, heineman in nebraska, susana martinez in new mexico (where bill richardson's scandals have really hurt ms denish) and terry branstad, happy lipton sipper and palin pal, in iowa where presidencies begin

and the seventh, dan maes in the rockies, would also be well ahead if immigration-extremist tom tancredo weren't sucking off his support

tancredo's under great pressure to OUST, of course---we'll see

colorado, you recall, saw bill ritter elected as gub by a wide margin in 06

he was a superstar as any dem must naturally be who can win a bellwether western

but he QUIT in january (i wonder why)

the 8th, rick scott, is tied in florida

the 9th is in MASSACHUSETTS, and charles baker has pulled within SIX of incompetent deval patrick in the latest rasmussen

what will ensue with this ugly issue when most of these candidates claim victory?

do you recall the close of the cinema classic, spartacus?

SUE ME!

no, SUE ME!

Show me where the bill protects the border. The bill deals with those that are already here. The border is unprotected, has been since before Obama was in office. Were you jumping up and down when the Bush's were presidents, and the border was unprotected? Hey I hope the new prez or congress does something about the border. I don't think any party will do anything about this problem.

Poor Sheriff Joe, he is a stellar example of law enforcement and protector of our rights. Hey, he has done one thing that he needs to be proud of, which is he has caused illegal aliens to be better drivers because the only illegal aliens he arrests are small time traffic offenders. Don't be mislead by the stats given by Joe. He uses jail bookings, for illegals arrested for major felonies by city police agencies to say he makes zillions of arrests. Funny how many in the GOP are going after Joe, last time I looked, they were far from being liberal. Cannot wait to see him in court for the civil rights law suit. I hope he is indicted for abuse of power.

I disagree, she is not killing her career. My prediction, Obama loses the prez. Palin wins. Palin does nothing. Congress goes GOP, and nothing gets done. Dems come back, do nothing. Hillary will be in there again. The way I see it, the USA is getting porked by both the Dem's and GOP. We need a party that will get rid of the this sull bhit

Actually, the border wall is being built, but not even this little bit would have been built if not for Pat Buchanan, who campaigned for it in 2000, and made it a plank in his platform. Buchanan also called for companies to be fined or shut down and their owners imprisoned if they hired illegal aliens. He was called a crazy and hateful man for advocating these ideas, by both Republicans and Democrats, but guess what? I voted for him. He was right.

The problem with the GOP is that they talk a good talk about illegals, but they just don't walk the walk.

I want to explain how the fact that these signs have been there for years before Obama came into office, completly invalidates this whole arguement Zimmer is making. But its so obvious I don't know how to explain it.
