US / Mexico Border Near Campo, California
My wife and I toured the US / Mexico border around 2006 while we lived in California. Given our current illegal immigration crisis, I thought I’d share these photos with you. What you see here is our actual border. Forget about the TSA and their little blue gloves and politely queued checkpoint lines you’ve experienced while travelling. That’s just the fake security our government puts on for show.
Browse the photos below, you’ll get a taste of the real deal.

Campo, California. 55 miles east of San Diego, and where the border fence ends.
The steel border fence is typically repaired by American volunteers, since the Border Patrol has no funds for upkeep. Still, numerous entry points are visible even in this small section.
A solitary American flag affixed by the Minutemen to the fence, with Mexico stretching to the horizon beyond.
Illegal border crossers tie cloth to their feet to obfuscate their tracks as they make entry into our country.
In some places, the border fence is only waist high.
In some places, the border fence is not even a fence, just a horizontally mounted pole.
Here is one section where the border fence ends.
The fence abruptly ends, marking the spot where money and political will could no longer justify construction.
A solitary border patrol vehicle, with an overwhelmingly large area to monitor.
Here the border fence is split where a large boulder interfered with sound construction.
Another gap in the fence.
Mexico stretches to the horizon beyond the fence gap. The whole area on the Mexico side is completely controlled by drug lords, who have total control over all drug and human smuggling.
Needles are scattered all over. Smugglers inject speed or meth so they can run for miles and quickly get beyond the immediate border area.
Yet another place where the border fence just ends…
And then picks up again….
Driving along the dirt road along the border, countless gaps exist in the fence and have been exploited countless times.
Yet another location where the fence just ends.
Here’s a location where Mexican nationals were actually just driving their cars right through, so Minutemen and local ranchers erected some steel poles as makeshift barriers.
Patriot Point, in Campo, California. Our flag flies proudly on this high ground where Minutemen assist our border patrol in spotting illegal border crossers.
While these photos represent only a tiny fraction of our border, I hope it helps you to understand the scope of the issue we face.
