Why I Won’t Be Spending My Summer Vacation In Arizona: Governor Claims Most Illegals Are ‘Drug Mules’
Arizona governor Jan Brewer doesn’t know what an illegal immigrant looks like, but she knows what “the majority” of them are up to–why, they’re all drug mules, of course! According to CNN, Governor Brewer made this claim earlier this month during a debate of Republican gubernatorial candidates, and then she reiterated it again last Friday:
“Well, we all know that the majority of the people that are coming to Arizona and trespassing are now becoming drug mules,” Brewer said. “They’re coming across our borders in huge numbers. The drug cartels have taken control of the immigration.
“So they are criminals. They’re breaking the law when they are trespassing and they’re criminals when they pack the marijuana and the drugs on their backs.”
In other words, they’re weedbacks!
But here’s the thing: what Governor Brewer’s claiming isn’t true. (Shocking, I know.) It’s just another lie coming out of what is quickly becoming the most fascist and racist place in America. A representative for the National Border Patrol Council, the labor union for almost 20,000 border patrol agents and staff, which actually supports SB 1070, disputed Brewer’s claim as soon as she made it, saying that drugs smuggled across the border by Mexican cartels are typically moved in larger quantities, and that Brewer’s statement doesn’t “comport with reality — that’s the nicest way to put it.”
Also, research has shown that illegal immigrants–these “criminals,” as Brewer calls them–are less likely to commit crimes than homegrown Americans, because most come for work and want to stay, so it’s in their best interest to be law-abiding.
But who needs reality and facts, really, when you can just blame brown people for all your problems?
