Jan Brewer has her white rage on, again. She has unleashed a dope in diapers diatribe upon the folks who “trespass” on our borders. Most of the people she refers to are, of course, a slightly darker shade of brown than the
feeble fine minded, accidental governor. Brewer alleges that the “majority” of people who enter the US illegally are “drug mules”. We are still waiting for this certified Radiological technologist to cite her sources. Sean Alfano, NY Daily News staff writer, reports on Brewers vacuous comments. Citing the ubiquitous nature of her knowledge, she offers US this: (emphasis mine)
“We all know that the majority of the people that are coming to Arizona and trespassing are now become drug mules,” Gov. Jan Brewer told the Arizona Republic Friday.
“They’re coming across our borders in huge numbers. The drug cartels have taken control of the immigration.”
Brewer evidently has sources and insights unavailable to US Border Patrol officials:
A spokesman for the U.S. Border Patrol also downplayed the comments.
“I wouldn’t say that every person that is apprehended is being used as a mule,” Mario Escalante said.
Crime rates in Arizona’s border towns have been flat for the past 10 years, the Arizona Republic reports, even as drug violence in Mexico intensifies.
Border Patrol and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency were unable to provide data to support or dispute Brewer.
No data? That only leaves divine insight or associated empirical data:
Brewer might have The Sight, or maybe she is under the influence of drugs. Dumb, white doper gets my vote.
…the president of the Border Patrol union said that since drug charges carry stiffer penalties, few illegal immigrants trying to find work were willing to take the risk of prison time.
“The majority of people continue to come across in search of work, not to smuggle drugs,” T.J. Bonner said.
