    Border Security raised from 3 to 4!!! VERIFIED

    As you can see I have physically VERIFIED that Border Security has been raised from a 3 strand of barbed wire to 4. Last time I was down checking on the Fence, it was only 3 strands.

    And on top of that there is now evidence that the grass IS greener on their side...... HHHmmm

    Looks like they are clearing fields of fire for the soon to arrive military. Basically you are standing in the Beaten Zone , the area between the "first catch" and the "final graze" of a bullet's trajectory on our side of the border.
    Happen to also notice any new signs? mines.jpg

    To be a legal fence in an open range state, it must be a 4 strand fence. We don't want our cows getting across the border now do we. That fence is helping to keep the BS on our side for the moement.

    What i am trying to figure is there was at one time where the US and Mexico had signed a treaty that the US would never put any of the US Armed Forces on the border there.

    What happened to it?

    As you can see on the left side of the photo, the sign that is there has been shown the same about of respect as most signs in the area.... and i did notice that the holes were being punctured from this side and exited out towards their side... Just an observation.
    But no new odd signs warning of impending doom. But I also noted that a second observation truck has been added to this area. That is new in the last year too.

    I have no comments to make about this.
    Well, i do, but will not.

    Border killing 20 years ago changed military

    Seems this was the reason military has not been back on the border since then.
