Flags and tags on the border fence cause a flap | | Tucson, Arizona

COCHISE COUNTY - There is a section of the border fence where thousands of American flags flap in the wind outside of Sierra Vista.
But there's also a small hand written note attached to each of the flags and that causing quite a flap with a long time Southern Arizona activist and the U.S Border Patrol.
The U.S. Border Patrol says the messages need to be removed.
"We have over 10,000 petitions signed by American citizens saying enforce the law," says Glenn Spencer of the American Border Patrol, a border watch group.
"They were sent in individually, mailed to us, by our supporters," he said.
He says his supporters are petitioning the government because they don't like what's happening on the border. They want to see more fence along the border and a double fence.
