The border is at the border. A no-man's zone a kilometer wide between parallel fences needs to be established at the border where radar, sensors, border patrol vehicles and drones can observe and control attempted entries 24/7/365. Nogales, Arizona needs to realize that it is part of the United States step up and take responsibility for that.

You said a mouthful. Nogales, Arizona is indeed in the United States, NOT the de-militarized zone in Korea. For every illegal crosser here there are hundreds that cross legally to shop, visit friends and family on the U.S. side of the twin cities (our population doubles every day from such visitors). We live peacefully here in Nogales USA with our Nogales MEXICO neighbor and have done so since the late 1800's thank you.
