At approximately 10pm, ABP staff was demonstrating the "Gully Watcher" mobile camera vehicle for CNN reporters when we discovered something, The border fence works! We noticed that the traffic on the north side of the fence between Naco and the San Pedro River seemed to be virtually non-existant, but at least 14 people were spotted by our thermal camera walking east toward Naco on the South Side of the border.
We spoke briefly with one of the groups who told us they dislike the fence because it makes them have to work very hard to come across the border.
The video link below actually shows two people walking up to the fence from the Mexican side and then walking away after inspecting the new barrier.
