Border Invasion Slowed, But Not Stopped
Rancher says Border Patrol "not doing very well chasing 'em"

CBS News -- January 13 
Over The Line: Fighting Corruption on the Border
    John Ladd owns 14,000 wild acres in southern Arizona squared up against the Mexican border. It's land that's become extremely valuable for something besides ranching: For Mexico's illegal immigrants and drug cartels, it's a golden pathway into the U.S.
    "The easy part of getting across here is you got three miles to walk, and that's it," said Ladd. "You get picked up at the highway and you're gone."
    Five generations of Ladds have lived here. The family journeyed west over gritty trails in covered wagons in 1894.
    More than a century later, Ladd watches from his kitchen window as new immigrants -- the illegal kind -- regularly march across his land, oddly undeterred by the border fence, government surveillance cameras, and Border Agents patrolling the property.
    When asked how many illegal immigrants he estimates have crossed his property, Ladd replied, "I say about a half a million people have been caught on the ranch. And that's what's been caught - that's not what's got through." [...]
    "The south side is all controlled by the cartel now," said Ladd. "And the cartel has evolved to where they know what they're doing, and there's a lot of money at stake. And Border Patrol is still doing the same thing, deterring and chasing and, you know, we're not deterring anything and we're not doing very well chasing 'em."
Red DotNote: The Ladd Ranch is three miles east of American Border Patrol's ranch operations.
