I'd like them too- I'd also like to cross post them to the 'Samaritan thread', as a desperate, final plea to get some of the bleeding hearts to stuff a cork in the leaks.
Great stuff I too am sick of it.
Now as far as the pics they were sent to me from my cousin I think he should still have them as of course I was too angry to save doh!

That being said I would consider myself a humanitarian, I'm for evryones rights but breaking the law is not a "right"
Anyway--Have you guyz seen the pics of those trails they leave stuff on?
They are absolutly disgusting.
I believe that these civil rights activists who are bringing all this stuff in the desert for the illegals or just feel its the right thing to do are usually people that are libral thinking and also love mother earth. You would think if they are willing to risk jail, heatstroke yada yada yada to help these Illegals they could at least have people that will pick up the trash!!!!!
The Irony arouses my curiosity
Because illegal immigrants, unlike those who are legally admitted for permanent residence, undergo no medical screening to assure that they are not bearing contagious diseases, the rapidly swelling population of illegal aliens in our country has also set off a resurgence of contagious diseases that had been totally or nearly eradicated by our public health system.
According to Dr. Laurence Nickey, director of the El Paso heath district “Contagious diseases that are generally considered to have been controlled in the United States are readily evident along the border ... The incidence of tuberculosis in El Paso County is twice that of the U.S. rate. Dr. Nickey also states that leprosy, which is considered by most Americans to be a disease of the Third World, is readily evident along the U.S.-Mexico border and that dysentery is several times the U.S. rate ... People have come to the border for economic opportunities, but the necessary sewage treatment facilities, public water systems, environmental enforcement, and medical care have not been made available to them, causing a severe risk to health and well being of people on both sides of the border.”1
“The pork tapeworm, which thrives in Latin America and Mexico, is showing up along the U.S. border, threatening to ravage victims with symptoms ranging from seizures to death. ... The same [Mexican] underclass has migrated north to find jobs on the border, bringing the parasite and the sickness—cysticercosis—its eggs can cause[.] Cysts that form around the larvae usually lodge in the brain and destroy tissue, causing hallucinations, speech and vision problems, severe headaches, strokes, epileptic seizures, and in rare cases death.”2
The problem, however, is not confined to the border region, as illegal immigrants have rapidly spread across the country into many new economic sectors such as food processing, construction, and hospitality services.
Typhoid struck Silver Spring, Maryland, in 1992 when an immigrant from the Third World (who had been working in food service in the United States for almost two years) transmitted the bacteria through food at the McDonald’s where she worked. River blindness, malaria, and guinea worm, have all been brought to Northern Virginia by immigration.3
