In an astonishingly tone deaf article today, the Associated Press openly weeps for would-be ILLEGAL immigrants whose ILLEGAL efforts to ILLEGALLY enter the U.S. are being hindered by an "imposing" border fence:
NOGALES, AZ - The higher the wall, the harder they will fall. That's what border crossers trying to scale the new border fence at Nogales are painfully finding out.
The imposing new border fence running through Nogales is proving to be a treacherous obstacle for suspected illegal immigrants
A Nogales Police Department report says on Aug. 12, a woman broke her leg after climbing the border fence.
Two days later, officers found a second injured fence climber. And a third, suspected illegal immigrant from China fell and broke his leg on Aug 22.
Nogales Fire Department Chief Hector Robles tells the Nogales International that in addition to the height of the fence, adrenaline and miscalculations in determining the distance and angle of a fall are potential injury factors.
Well, I can think of at least one infallible way these poor souls could avoid such injuries. (Hint: Don't climb the fence.)
This article, titled "Border crossers finding new new fence painful," seems to suggest America should be more eager to welcome those who don't respect her laws.
I wonder how long it will be until immigration activists demand we make the border fence handicap-accessible. Or perhaps we should post a note on the fence warning illegal immigrants that "climbing this fence may be hazardous to your health."
As John Stossel would say, give me a break.
