Storm Looms Ahead for Gas 'Amnesty' Pipeline to Mexico Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Mon, May 5, 2014, 10:21 PM

U.S. immigration foes in Arizona are calling for President Barack Obama to say, "adios" to a scheduled natural gas pipeline that would flow into Mexico.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "A proposed route for a southern Arizona pipeline to take natural gas to Mexico is being criticized as damaging to the desert environment and opening a new route for smugglers and immigrants illegally entering the country."

Immigration opponents contend that illegal immigrants can make a run for the border by following the natural gas pipeline route, and after crossing into American boundaries, they can formally request "amnesty" from Obama.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "The planned 60-mile-long pipeline through the Altar Valley would extend from an existing Kinder Morgan Inc. line near Tucson southward to the U.S.-Mexico border near the town of Sasabe."

A U.S. Border Patrol official is quoted as saying that, "the pipeline would lead to a considerable increase in alien and narcotics traficking."
