A lot of the places from this article feel lawless in person. I backpack and hike a lot of parks in the US, and only carry a firearm in the southern part of Arizona. There’s hidden camera footage on YouTube of smugglers in the mountains an hour north of the border, carrying automatic weapons. There’s sections north of the border that have been closed to the public because the government is unable to deal with the crime there. My cousin who lives there confronted a trespasser on their property who was arrested an hour later for murdering someone the night before in the national park. Every theory in this article seems plausible.

I don't think this is true. Outside of the area closed for border wall construction (eg in Coronado), can you provide a reference?
