Border Deaths Drop

The Washington Times reports that the illegal alien assistance group Human Rights Coalition (CDH by its Spanish acronym) reported that the rate of deaths of illegal aliens crossing into Arizona had increased since 2004. The number of deaths stated by the group was 234 in 2004 and 183 in 2011 – a drop of more than 50 deaths. The CDH spin on the issue results from the fact that they compare the death total to the illegal alien apprehension total, and the latter has dropped more steeply than the deaths.

Would it be asking too much to expect the CDH to celebrate that improved border security has resulted in a reduction in loss of life by aliens illegally entering the country while still lamenting the deaths?

    So – did they get their information from DHS?? Are they trying to sell that cr*p as well?? I don’t believe anything illegal alien groups, DHS, ICE (even though some of them really want to do their job – are restricted from doing so) or even the federal government that they have to say. When they get their story straight – AND it’s consistant – MAYBE I’ll believe them or give them the benefit of the doubt. Until then – they have no credibilty – not with me.

    I wouldn’t believe anything any illegal alien group, or this administration said about anything they speak with forked tongues, and they are aiding, and abetting crime.

    I think the economy here have a lot to do with that drop, not the effort of this administration to secure our borders, because the borders continue to be like a revolving door, gone today and back tomorrow, it they already have a job illegally here, or anchor babies and an illegal family getting government assistant. I don’t believe any of the data given by this government, we all know that one thing they do very well, is lying.
