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.
