Bullshit reloaded

28 March 2013

The national media has perpetually portrayed an extremely inaccurate image of life on the border, all based on sensational lies created by politicians like McCain. I felt as if the visit of these four senators to my hometown was going to turn into a circus and we were the stage being used for their “war zone” propaganda.

My biggest fear soon became a reality…

(Nogales radio reporter, Mucho Martinez, on the “Too Convenient” border jumper incident, writing for Latino Rebels).

You need more than a willing suspension of disbelief to imagine a woman would do a flying jump over the border fence in the middle of the afternoon, while the Border Patrol is standing by (and a couple of U.S. Senators just happen to be there “researching” border security). Who you going to believe… people who live (or have lived) along the border or a couple of politicians with an agenda?

    Thank you so much for linking to Mucho’s piece and amplifying it. We were proud to publish it, since he pulls no punches, and rightly so.
