Arizona Governor: Majority of Illegal Immigrants Are Drug Mules

 

According to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, the majority of people crossing the border into Arizona are becoming drug mules. Brewer went as far as to say that the drug cartels are accosting illegal immigrants, effectively "taking control" of immigration.

Brewer´s comments have been scrutinized as being "exaggerated and racist." Professor Oscar Martinez of the University of Arizona believes that Brewer has no data backing up her claims, saying that she is "mouthing off for political reasons."

Despite increased drug violence in Mexico, crime rates of Arizona border towns have not increased for the past decade. Border Patrol and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency were unable to provide data to bolster or dismiss Brewer´s claims.

  And I guess the problem with that is ..

  OK  
 
Let´s break this down, shall we? Logic is a beautiful thing.

FAIR (the anti-illegal immigration group which does business with known white supremacists) estimates that Arizona has nearly 500,000 illegal immigrants.

A majority of those could thus be as small a number as 250,001.

Are we really to believe that Arizona has over a quarter million illegal immigrant drug mules within its borders?

"Are we really to believe that Arizona has over a quarter million illegal immigrant drug mules within its borders?"

If you are xenophobic and borderline retarded, then yes, we are to believe that.

Key2000, would be interesting to see what effect that bust has, if any, on how people vote this fall in that state for legalizing marijuana.

Fernando Luevano isn´t an illegal alien.

  BS  
 
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is as full of poop as a Christmas turkey - and she´s a racist. Most Mexicans in this country come here for the jobs that companies refuse to pay Americans a decent wage for. A few may be drug runners, but she is a typical lying conservative politician who makes broad unsubstantiated statements. Conservatives are the champions of partial truth.

illegal or not. It´s obvious that these big drug bust involve Mexican internationals. Here´s another recent (2weeks ago) and this guy is illegal http://www.cbsnews.com/... ..
back to yesterdays bust, I highly doubt it would be just him selling it. I highly doubt it that will be just him unpacking it. I highly doubt it you´ll see a Bob Smith in this one. For the pass 2 weeks many death threats from Mexico Cartels to our police officers, and nothing about the people of Mexico opposing it (search for yourself) And knowing the way the Gov sometimes covers things up, for all we know that guy could be illegal, for all we know. Maybe the Gov don´t want people getting all more pissed off.

Bust involving our people usually involve the medical marijuana people, personal growers and users, and small addicts. Do your search.

show where it says this guy is legal :-D

unless you are assuming.

Dude, dude, dude... Slow down. I´m not arguing with you.

Fernando happens to be an acquaintance of a friend of mine who used to work with him.

Key, nobody is saying that there aren´t *some* illegal immigrants who run drugs. Posting stories about people with Spanish names getting busted for drugs is missing the point.

sorry, wasn´t trying dive bomb ya there :-D
I grew up in a community that seen some harsh stuff from the south in cali in the 70s but anyway, your friend that is friends with that dude, that´s some serious sh*t, that guy is connected to people who chop off heads, kill children and all that, anyone driving that much stuff, I would distant myself fast like, because when sh*t hits the fan, well, we all see what happens in Mexico when the cartels decide to perhaps take out all who they suspect might bring them harm (plus more) :-D

  @key  
 
Literally speaking the guy used to work with the brother of my best friend from middle school but it´s "six degrees of separation". Everybody knows somebody who knows somebody who knows somebody who recently found a way to make a quick buck. I just happen to know somebody who knows somebody who knows somebody who got caught.

Sure, He´s involved with some heavy dudes but in the grand scheme of things we all are. It´s wise not to judge "too" much.

  @Verm  
 
hehehe, I hear ya :-D

I wasn´t really judging, but maybe judging things not to do or people to chill with .. note to self, sorta like :-D

Your wrong.

Most illegals come here to live off of U.S. entitlements, without paying taxes, or are fleeing prosecution in their home country.

Getting a Job is just something someone has to do once they get here to live off of.

  America Needs Illegal Immigration . . .  
 
or there will be many Border Patrol officers without a job. And if that happens, guess who will Mrs. Governor will blame . . . illegal immigrants.
 
  by: jimmieballer26   06/28/2010 09:01 PM     
  What´s the difference between . . .  
 
people fleeing their country to get a job here, and American companies out-sourcing cheap labor to China, etc.? . . . aside from the effort on the part of the immigrant. . .?

Election.

This bottom feeder is using the vulnerable people in her state like Hitler used the Jews. She is using them for her political gain by scapegoating them. This is about as low as anyone can get. I truly hope that Arizona tosses this bottom feeder out.

  @ichi  
 
Traditionally, most liberals state "any politician or talking head that likens a modern politician to Hitler should be ignored."

So Arizona is murdering millions of Mexicans? They are burning their own state building and blaming it on Mexican nationals?

  I was losing hope  
 
but the clear minds in this blog are impressive... the problem still lies in this:
people are only choosing two options:
1. militarize and give up rights
2. allow illegal immigration

those are ignorant, politically useful choices...

there are many more:

1. don´t militarize
2. don´t give up constitutional rights
3. close border using ins
4. stop funding corrupt mexican government
5. stop u.s. companies from benefiting from illegal mexican workers
6. stop u.s. companies from doing business with mexican companies that don´t pay a living wage
7. for u.s. companies to pay a fair price and fair tariffs on mexican products
8. make drugs legal in the u.s. (man up to the fact that american drug consumption is the problem with drug trafficking)
9. stop paying welfare in large cities, forcing people without jobs to look for work in farms
10. stop exporting u.s. jobs to foreign countries - thereby protecting u.s. workers and paying them more!!!

i think these are reasonable actions that can be easily taken... uh um.. unless of course, what is going on is profiting the u.s. politicians and big businessmen? Nah, that couldn´t be true, don´t they all tell the truth when they chop down cherry trees?

can beer be shipped? I wonder if a keg fits in my mailbox?

:P

I live in Tucson, Arizona and I can tell you that not one person I know with a brain, likes or agrees with Brewer.

  oh bennie....  
 
any one carring drugs across the border is a mule. since those caught with drugs claim they were forced to do so does not make a difference any more then smoking mary jane and saying it doesn´t could if you don´t inhale! the biggest thing by those being border jumper lovers is they are unable to except those assholes have broken the law entering here illegally. only idiots do not understand what illegal means! now one more time, enter here with our entering through the proper entry points and with the proper paper work are doing so illegally, a crime! shoot them and they will not do it again unless it was a bad shot!

I don´t disagree with you on any particular point but you need to work on the fundamentals. Spelling and grammar are your friends.
 
  by: VermiciousG     06/29/2010 04:49 AM     
  @shannon...  
 
i think the statement that illegals should not be here is valid. the statement that illegals have personally offended you because they´re taking bread out of your mouth, is also valid.

shooting them seems like something that only sick person would enjoy.

so i imagine you chewing the cud with some near relative that is also your partner. reveling about how you´re gonna get your cotton picking (literally) job back, while you clean your gun and your kids which also happen to be your uncles run around with no shoes...

i mean really, that´s the picture i get.

But i´m only saying...

you might be a rocket scientist with a patent on a cure for cancer for all i know. it´s just the tone of the text that draws the picture.

  Sorry to Break it to You  
 
But the majority of illegals are looking for a job, a better life.

Until we address that, the problem will continue.
 
  by: Jim8   06/29/2010 05:15 AM     
  And, bonus  
 
The illegals that used to report on crime are going silent. Great job!

"What most in law enforcement here do agree on is that the victims of crime by illegal immigrants tend to be other immigrants. Community activists argue that the new law will make it worse for law-abiding immigrants because few immigrants, whether documented or not, will want to deal with police.

´No one´s going to call the cops,´ said Alfredo Gutierrez, a former state Senate majority leader who opposed the bill. He said law-abiding immigrants of all types were fleeing the state out of fear of being subjected to racial profiling.

´They´re getting rid of the folks who would report the crooks,´ Gutierrez said. ´The crooks are staying. This is like heaven for them.´"

Illegal Criminal Immigrants are fleeing, to say that a law abiding citizen with legal status would flee is ridiculous. If anything they will report more crime by illegals hoping the authorities will finally deport them.

Read what it says. Community Activists. They are just that Activists, which mean they support a certain agenda, and probably will say anything they can to try and support that agenda. Truth probably isn´t even taken into account.

When I first read "community activists" it came out "communists" in my head. haha.

Probably not far off. Communism is all about the dismantlement of boarders.

  @Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer,  
 
Lets keep it simple. I don´t care if they a drug mules or Lilly of the valley illegal.. They they broke the law they are a criminal. Send them back where they came from.

Quote:Mexicans in this country come here for the jobs that companies refuse to pay Americans a decent wage for.

Really, Just to name a few, they are in construction. Carpet installation, Drywall, and you name it. They are hired by American companies because they will work for less and in return the American worker gets shit canned because he NEEDS more to live here legally. I don´t know what rock you live under but you should come out every once in a while and get a grip on reality.

  A tough one for me  
 
I don´t consider myself a democrat or a liberal but I definitely have those leanings. I welcome immigrants, emigrants and seasonal workers with open arms. Hell, I´ll give them a lift from the border to the town of their choice for gas money. BUT, I absolutely insist that they be here legally.

I hate to be a hard ass about that but that´s the cut of my jib.
