Illegal alien traffic has diminished to nothing along this established “wetback” thoroughfare, or they’re getting caught less. “Coyotes” (drivers) transport the illegals across the Mexican border (an hour to the south) with the illusion of a big city (like Los Angeles) but abandon them in Sand Valley. Last summer I came home to a dozen sprawled in the shade chewing barrel cactus for moisture and fainting. I did what was necessary; be aware that abetting border hoppers – even giving water now – is illegal.
