Federal authorities say a person wearing scuba gear apparently tried to sneak two bundles of marijuana across the Mexican border through a sewer system.

Border Patrol agents operating infrared cameras noticed several individuals illegally crossing into Arizona using a sewer outlet near Douglas on Friday. The Douglas Station's bike patrol went to the sewer system and saw one person carrying two bundles that were suspected to be marijuana.

That person was wearing a wet suit and scuba gear and was wading through waist-high water with the bundles. The person saw the agents, dropped the bundles and began wading back toward Mexico and the other people spotted by the Border Patrol also fled and were not found.

Officials say the marijuana weighed 55 pounds and had an estimated street value of $44,000.

“Arizona, huh?

For a really good laugh, you should see McCain’s campaign website on this issue...You’d think he was Tom Tancredo today!!

Of course he says he’s not for ‘amnesty’.
Remember this is the guy who said, [I’ll build the g.Damned fence if that’s what you want!]

Good old John...trying to fool the public yet again.

John McCain is committed to securing our borders.

John McCain does not support amnesty

Poll: Voters Unaware of Candidates’ Immigration Positions; McCain Supporters Farthest Off the Mark

# Only 34 percent of McCain voters, 42 percent of Clinton voters, and 52 percent of Obama voters correctly identified their candidate as favoring eventual citizenship for illegal immigrants who meet certain requirements.
# Of McCain voters, 35 percent mistakenly thought he favored enforcement that would cause illegals to return home, another 10 percent thought he wanted mass deportations, and 21 percent didn’t know his position.
# Voters often held different positions from the candidate they supported. Only 31 percent of McCain voters had the same immigration position as he does

Keep lyin’ to them, John!! It’s the only way you can win.

But for some reality, here is J.D. Hayworth’s statement:

Illegal Immigration

A national leader in the fight to secure our borders, J.D. Hayworth has actually “written the book” on the subject, “Whatever It Takes”. When John McCain proposed his Amnesty Plan—the Heritage Foundation said it would cost taxpayers $2.6 Trillion—J.D. Hayworth stood up and fought against it. Taking on a U.S. Senator with nearly 30 years of seniority took courage, but J.D. understood that our economy could not survive the long-term effects of the McCain-Kennedy plan, and that encouraging millions of people to break our laws was a recipe for disaster.

J.D. has led the fight for real border security, interior enforcement, and requiring that law enforcement enforce our laws and protect our citizens. It is no surprise that he has been endorsed by great leaders like Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and State Senator Russell Pearce.

Remember the Wrigleys got rich selling gum at 5 cents a pack. $1000/lb. must be worth the risk to someone.

Yes but, it’s not even $1,000 per pound. It was 55 lbs valued at $44,000 if I recall those details correctly, so it quite a bit less.

This had to be some real mexican dirt weed.

As a connoisseur, I am deeply offended by such amateurish activity.
