Testimonials from Past Guests

“All I can say is top notch, incredibly well-done. These tours are can't miss.” - Jim

“Every American should come see the state of the southwest border.” - Linda

“The various people we met brought into stark relief the magnitude of the problems the nation faces arising from illegal immigration. - Allan

“You promised we would not get the usual Border Patrol spin job or fed the Janet Napolitano line about how border security has improved, and you were right. We heard and saw at many dangerous border sites from local ranchers, a veteran customs agent, border residents and brave journalists who really knew their stuff, the dismal truth about how our federal government has failed to protect American citizens.” - Don

“We thought the arrangements to meet these extraordinary people were superb, as was the guidance and logistics on the entire trip. Thanks for all you did to make our visits such memorable experiences.” - Don

“It was an outstanding trip. So much experience and information packed into just a few days. Thanks for the excellent arrangements!” - Sarah
