It didn’t take long for the facts to expose the underlying misinformation and distortions in reporter Daniel Gonzales’ front page attempt to configure a decline Arizona’s illegal population.
KSAZ FOX 10 News filed this report within hours of the Arizona Republic’s attempt to convince us that illegals are leaving in record numbers. We just covered it in our previous post.
A traffic stop for faulty equipment has led to the discovery of nearly 100 undocumented immigrants stuffed inside a refrigerated commercial trailer. A search of the fruit transport trailer revealed 97 illegals from Mexico and Guatemala including adults and children in near freezing conditions of 34 degrees.
The driver was taken into custody for a misdemeanor warrant.
“This is yet another frightening example of the callous disregard human smugglers have for those who entrust their lives to them,” said the special agent in charge of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).”These people were treated like cargo.”
He neglected to mention that the adults were all co-conspirators with their transporting “coyotes,” who are paid handsomely for bringing them into the United States in violation of the law. Sending them home is not punishment.
And why is the driver only charged with a single misdemeanor?
