"You farmers, I'm telling you right now, arm yourselves," he said. "As they say the old story is, it's better to be tried by 12 than carried by six. Damn it, I don't want to see six people carrying you."
~Hudspeth County, Texas Sheriff Arvin West
Last month, a well-known rancher was murdered in southeastern Arizona. Authorities suspect an illegal immigrant did it.
The murder prompted governors in New Mexico and Texas to send forces to the border. This week, the Mexican government sent dozens of police and soldiers to the Juarez Valley to restore order

This past year there has been a lot of violence down there. I wouldn't feel safe. They have been warning people who travel to be extra careful because of it. This is because of the drug gangs. A very specific threat. This isn't a general warning about illegal immigration just because it's a border town.
