(Nogales, AZ-USA) A Mexican news team in Nogales Arizona was filming a segment on cross border shootings when two men were seen climbing over the railings of the US – Mexico border wall.
Footage shows the alleged cartel members, who were wearing giant backpacks, shimmying down the fence.
Once on U.S. soil, they made their way along the fence as one made a call on his cellphone, according to a report from Brietbart News.
After hunting for cover, the pair made their way to some shrubs to hide behind. It was then they noticed the film crew, Azteca Noticias, filming them.
They shouted at reporter Carolina Rocha and her crew to stop filming.
The smugglers then made a call and ran back to the fence when the news team refused.
The men scale the metal wall railings within seconds and run back into Mexico as the reporter tells them; ‘I am only doing my job, son.’
With many Americans (some with political aspirations) calling for “tighter” border security, being labeled as bigots and racists, a second thought must be given by all when we know (and see) the facts. Not all Mexicans are drug dealers. But we still need to address the illegal activity on the border. If anyone is offended, so be it.
A final thought. What happens in the dead of night along the Southern Border when there is no News Crew with cameras rolling? (RE)

The ‘watchmen’ of The Arizona Border Recon – led by the group’s chief ‘Nailer’ – protect the border near the Mexican town of Nogales, with three goals; stop illegal immigration, stop drug smuggling, and stop human trafficking.
The striking photographs were taken by Johnny Milano for his project The Hills of Pima, capturing the men’s 24-hour operation which sees them monitor the border, watch carefully for immigrants and stop cross-country criminals in their tracks.
They look like soldiers – and some of them are veterans – but many are or were private security experts, Mr Milano told Feature Shoot.
This means that they do not necessarily have the power to stop people attempting to make into the U.S., but this does not stop them from taking action.
