Re: “Trashing Arizona

Wow. Do you know how proud Lou Dobbs would be of this article? Giving us an argument that a.) tugs at our heart strings with valid issues (insert pollution/littering here), but b.) targets those who can't really fight back (insert any Mexican group here).
...because you know Americans have nothing to do with trashing the environment.
Come on, Tucson. I thought we were better informed than this. This whole article blames our neighbors for our own ridiculous consumption and consumerism. Yeah, migrants might have to shed some of their clothing, food and water containers as they're running around perilous cliffs, avoiding the spotlight of choppers overhead, focusing on the hope of a better life for their families. But I guarantee that if that hope is fulfilled, they'll be picking up more of our trash than they could have ever left on their own. Will they have time to complain as they work with no rights?
I've made a few trips to help clean up some regular migrant trails. Maybe if everyone just attempted one trip out to our border, with this in mind, we could have a better understanding of WHY so much is left behind. These are our brothers and sisters that we are so easily blaming.
