Guard Moves Into Drug Smuggling Zone
Is the deterrence big?
KOLD-TV -- Tucson -- November 15   
ABP will look for National Guard.
Border danger zone
    Sasabe, Arizona -- Bloodshed on the streets of Mexico is well-documented: at least 23 thousand deaths attributed to drug-related violence since 2006.
    In that time, we've seen traces of that violence right here in Southern Arizona. Home invasions, kidnappings, executions, etc.
    In most cases, the violence reaches a head in places like Tucson or Phoenix. But it actually starts just north of the border, far from the city lights.
    The Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge: 118 thousand acres of genuine, Sonoran bliss.
    Established in 1985 as a massive sanctuary for endangered species and native vegetation, the refuge has been under siege the last four years. So much, in fact, a 3,500 acre portion of it is closed indefinitely for public safety. [...]
    "With that comes more violence," Sally Gall says. "So I think there's a little bit of elevated fear in all of us to what might happen out here."
    One reason why the National Guard was at the refuge today, literally patrolling the Refuge itself. [...]
    "Deterrence is big," says Border Patrol Agent Mario Escalante, referring to the added federal presence along the border. "Once you see the amount of agents and once you see the amount of National Guard... and once you see the amount of technology and infrastructure -- then you can see from that standpoint, that's going to make it a lot more difficult to cross."
