Arizona rancher on Sinaloa cartel: ‘They control the whole area'

Wave after wave – night after night and day after day.

It’s a familiar sight for some ranchers along the Mexico-Arizona border: heavily armed drug and human smugglers.

They cross into the state, traveling on foot for miles and carrying their load on their backs – the drugs inside could be worth millions.

The smugglers will do whatever it takes to get it to its destination.

That’s why rancher Jim Chilton wants a border wall completed along the country’s southern boundary with Mexico.

“The Sinaloa cartel has cartel scouts on our mountains and they essentially control the area,” he said.
