NEXT THEY'LL BE TELLING US JEWS DON'T MAKE MOTZAH OUT OF CHRISTIAN BABIES:

Arizona's leaders resort to lies - and make their state a pariah (Dana Milbank, 7/11/10, Washington Post)

The Arizona governor, seemingly determined to repel every last tourist dollar from her pariah state, has sounded a new alarm about border violence. "Our law enforcement agencies have found bodies in the desert either buried or just lying out there that have been beheaded," she announced on local television. [...]

The Arizona Guardian website checked with medical examiners in Arizona's border counties, and the coroners said they had never seen an immigration-related beheading. I called and e-mailed Brewer's press office requesting documentation of decapitation; no reply.

Brewer's mindlessness about headlessness is just one of the immigration falsehoods being spread by Arizona politicians. Border violence on the rise? Phoenix now the world's No. 2 kidnapping capital? Illegal immigrants responsible for most police killings? The majority of those crossing the border are drug mules? All wrong.

This matters, because it means the entire premise of the Arizona immigration law is a fallacy.


That would be the excuse for the law, not the premise.
