West California, Part 4
This area is so dangerous that it is patrolled
by land, sea and air. Open land filled with American civilians
that borders the largest single mass of drug cartels and their
private armies anyplace on earth means getting serious about security.
Here we have just one squad of the very many
that constantly patrol the border between the California's huge
Interstate 5 freeway complex and the Pacfic Ocean. It may only
be an area five miles wide but what the area lacks in size it
more than makes up for in potential violence.
The business of smuggling people over the border
is almost "franchised" and every mile of border can
be claimed by a different smuggler. In the Tijuana area the smugglers
specialize in returning "1326s" to the USA. This term
is from "US code title 8 Chapter 12, subchapter II Part
VIII 1326. Reentry of removed aliens."
These usually are people who have been convicted of some felony,
have spent time in an American penetentiary and were deported.
Now they are coming back to take care of business.
What you must understand is that the penalty
for returning to the USA after having been convicted of a felony
and being deported is 20 YEARS IN PRISON. These "undocumented
migrants" are extremely dangerous.
