The Sacramento Bee ran a story today about a suspected murderer (already in a California jail on another charge and with 14 to 18 aliases), referring to the criminal as “a Mexican citizen”. The Sacramento Bee-Ess had to do this because of their front-page article about the hatred coming from the “anti illegal immigration” folks.
No mention was made of her nationality in my paper. Later it was reported that she was Mexican - one report stated that she said she was illegally in this country and in another the police stated she was legally.
She was sentenced to ten years but might get out earlier. Naturally, she had to be provided with an interpreter.
