Article Photos: Ranchers split over US border security plan 8/21

In this Friday, Aug. 10, 2012 photo, rancher Dan Bell, who owns a 35,000-acre cattle ranch along the border between the United States and Mexico, checks out part of his property where the barbed-wire fence is often damaged by illegal border crossers, in Nogales, Ariz. When Bell drives through his property, he speaks of the hurdles that the Border Patrol faces in his rolling green hills of oak and mesquite trees: The hours it takes to drive to some places, the wilderness areas that are generally off-limits to motorized vehicles, and the environmental reviews required to extend a dirt road.
