The Cocopah Indian Reservation is a stretch of land comprised of 6,500 separated acres bordering Arizona, California, and Mexico. Citing obstruction of easy access to the river, environmental concerns, and separation from fellow tribe members living in Mexico, leaders have quietly opposed the construction of the border wall since the Trump administration.
Recently, the Cocopah Tribal Leaders encouraged the Biden administration's efforts to interfere with the shipping container wall constructed by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey. The Cocopah Tribe told Associated Press that Gov. Ducey did not ask the tribe for permission prior to the assembling of the shipping container barrier and cited claims of blocking an evacuation route, amongst other safety concerns. According to AP, the Cocopah Tribe states they have worked with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials by allowing surveillance cameras and sensors to be placed on the reservation. However, despite the claims of cooperation, massive numbers of illegal aliens continue to utilize the Native land as an illegal entry point.
Disturbing cases of violence continue to occur within Cocopah land boundaries with little visible concern or outrage by tribal leaders or local operating NGOs. While reporting from the Yuma Sector, CBP sources stressed caution near the border wall, citing numerous witnessed rapes and robberies of the migrants. Discarded women's underwear along with used and unused condoms litter the ground where thousands travel across the tribal lands in search of CBP agents to turn themselves in for processing.
Many media sources are noticeable failing to report the connection between the current open border-type policies of the Department of Homeland Security and the Biden administration, to these horrific offenses occurring after migrants illegally enter or after inhumanely being trafficked into the United States.
In August, independent journalist and Real America's Voice News Correspondent Anthony Aguero reported live when a woman bleeding from her arm walked from around the border wall in the Yuma Sector. Consistent with detailed accounts by local law enforcement sources, the woman claimed that she and her boyfriend had been approached by a group of men while traveling through the Cocopah territory. According to the woman, the men attempted to rob the couple and began sexually assaulting her. She fought back while trying to free herself from the assailants and felt a sharp pain in her arm. While continuing to flee the stretch of land Anthony Aguero calls "No Man's Land," the woman realized that she had been stabbed in her forearm.
The recent figures released by CBP for Fiscal Year 2022 reached an unprecedented number of apprehensions of over 2.7 million. The Biden administration has admitted to losing track of up to 40% of unaccompanied minors. Additionally, several recent cases of exploitation and human/sex trafficking rings involving migrants continue to surface across the country. Many media sources are noticeably failing to report the connection between the current open border-type policies of the Department of Homeland Security and the Biden administration, to these horrific offenses occurring after migrants illegally enter or after inhumanely being trafficked into the United States.
