This would be pretty unnerving as you say and something for deep concern. I had heard that some amateurs have given up on observing at some sites a lot closer to the border because of the stream of illegal alien traffic coming through. Your story gives credibility to this. In all my 45 years in Arizona I have never felt in danger being alone in the middle of the night, but it appears things really have changed in very recent times.
