Arizona governor Jan Brewer came out with the following ridiculous statement today:
“I believe today, under the circumstances that we’re facing, that the majority of the illegal trespassers that are coming into the state of Arizona are under the direction and control of organized drug cartels and they are bringing drugs in,” Brewer said.
Even Fox News would tell Jan Brewer she’s lying. Here’s an article were they reported how most immigrants actually enter this country legally and simply overstay their visas.
The Immigration Service says of the 12 million illegals in this country, at least half entered the country legally.
How could that happen?
Well, according to the Immigration Service six million illegals in this country are visa overstays. That is, they got a visa legally in their home country, they came here to visit and then they never left.
Now wait. I know people from Europe and Asian countries do this, but do you mean to tell me illegal Mexicans here are visa overstays?
Yes, I mean to tell you precisely that.
Now to Brewer’s defense, she did say “I believe…” but even so, what she believes is a lie. I hope Brewer gets her facts straight and stops using lies to increase support among the xenophobes out there.
