Arizona Residents WRONG to Protest Border Checkpoints Agents Stop Drugs and Illegals From Entering USA

Arizona residents protest Border Patrol checkpoints Arivaca Border Patrol Checkpoint
AMADO — Normally four or five Border Patrol agents staff the interior checkpoint on Arivaca Road, about 35 miles south of Tucson.
But as many as 20 agents flanked the highway Wednesday morning, awaiting the arrival of a group of demonstrators determined to close the interior checkpoint — one of several such protests that took place in southern Arizona on Wednesday.
Opponents want the checkpoints removed. Some say they are a nuisance and threaten privacy; others say they lead to racial profiling.
The protesters arrived at 10 a.m., about 75 strong, and successfully blocked the road for a while, pushing against the Border Patrol agents
