"The latest battle in the war on illegal immigration isn't over the smuggling of undocumented workers, it's over the trash they leave behind."

"Government officials and border activists say the garbage dumped in the desert by illegal immigrants and their smugglers is staggering."

"And the cleanup is costing taxpayers millions."

"In 2006 alone, more than 1.18 million pounds of trash was collected along southern Arizona border, many in the meeting spots where immigrants rest, change clothes and wait to hitch a ride further north with a smuggler."

"Arizonia officials have spent approximately $4.4 million over five years to clean up the mess, that continues to build with each crossing. Nearly $1 million was spent for 2007 from a base BLM appropriation."

"Border Patrol's Tucson sector, which covers most of the Arizona border, doesn't have statistics about how many people cross through each year, but on average, agents apprehend 1,500 people a day, with 378,000 undocumented immigrants caught in 2007 alone."
