THE BORDER REPORT
While I recognize that elected officials aren’t always the sharpest knife in the drawer, I take absolute exception to this elected idiot up in Wisconsin who supports a boycott against Arizona on the grounds that Arizona does not border Mexico and therefore faces no illegal immigration issues.
Years ago, I used to cover the board of supervisors meetings up in Flagstaff, Ariz., the representative for the Navajo reservation slice of the county used to fall asleep before the meetings even began. A colleague and I begged the editors to let us write a story about the snoozing supervisor but he felt that was too mean-spirited and told us to let it go.
I had thought I’d seen the worst of ineptitude with that woman. And then someone sent me this.
“If this was Texas, which is a state that is directly on the border with Mexico, and they were calling for a measure like this saying that they had a major issue with undocumented people flooding their borders, I would have to look twice at this. But this is a state that is a ways removed from the border,” she says.
