T.J. Bonner of the National Border Patrol Council told CNN that Brewer’s claims were “clearly not the case.” Bonner said that some undocumented immigrants caught by border patrol agents have drugs on them, and that they sometimes blame pressure from the drug cartels.
But, he said, those claims have little credibility because drug smugglers are typically transporting much larger quantities of drugs. And besides, he said, if what Brewer said were true, there would be many more prosecutions for drug smuggling.
Brewer’s comments, Bonner said, don’t “comport with reality — that’s the nicest way to put it.”
I dunno. Maybe free elections aren’t the best idea, after all. Or is this just the far right’s habit of throwing bullshit, figuring some of it will stick? (AKA The Big Lie)
Besides which Jan — you numbskull — after the mules arrive and disappear into the woodwork, how do you get your drugs back? Does she think there’s a big clearinghouse for illegal immigrants someplace, where they all report in before scattering?
This woman makes John McCain look good. Actually, when you get right down to it, McCain’s an OK guy; he’s just on the wrong side. This Brewer creature is just a bigot.
