Arizona's Immigrant Death Spiral (Mega Barf with Tears)
Yahoo News ^ | 7/29/2010 | Yahoo News

Posted on 07/29/2010 6:56:07 AM PDT by Dallas59

Diego Gutierrez, a 25-year-old man Mexican man, illegally crossed the border into Arizona sometime around last Friday. Gutierrez was handsome and well built, with big eyes and a head of thick, black hair. In a photo taken by a Pima County medical examiner, he appeared to have a Roman nose. After trudging through the desert on days when temperatures at a nearby airfield reached 106 degrees, Gutierrez began to complain of stomach cramps. He vomited. Gutierrez’s father, who had crossed the border with him, left his son and flagged down a Border Patrol officer. The officer later reported that he and the father found Gutierrez’s body in the wee hours of Monday morning, July 26. Gutierrez was lying on his back under a tree; his head, fittingly enough, was pointed north.

Until a federal judge intervened Wednesday, Arizona's Senate Bill 1070 was set to go into effect with much talk of death. Explaining why the state’s police officers should ask anyone they deem suspicious to produce proof of citizenship, Gov. Jan Brewer spoke vividly of immigrant crime, drug cartels, “bodies in the desert.” In fact, authorities are finding many dead bodies in the Arizona desert these days, but they are not the victims of immigrant murderers. They are the immigrants themselves. What 1070 misses is that it’s far more dangerous to sneak into Arizona than it is to live here.

and he was carrying a Mexican voter registration card.

It's evidently okay if the coroner checks his papers...

Good grief. What a childish ‘story’, childishly written.

now those poor mexicans - who brave a frickin' desert - die in pursuit of a better life

Other people brave the horror of our immigration service in pursuit of a better life. But that is much less likely to result in death, and makes you a LEGAL immigrant.

If the law had gone into effect, people like that wouldn’t be attempting to cross the border because it would be futile. Instead, Bolton made these folks think the land of free food and stuff was theirs for the asking if they could just get there. These deaths in the desert are on the heads of the judges and politicians who have made our country the lawless bad lands.

I am reminded of when AIDS was the hot topic for the Left. They wanted to blame everybody but the perp/victim. They also wanted a lot of free stuff for the victims.

The ignored solution - don’t engage in unprotected homosexual sex.

Teen age pregnancies - don’t engage in unprotected sex.

Drug abuse - don’t take drugs.

Alcohol abuse. - don’t drink.

Dying of heat exhaustion in the desert in the summer time. - don’t try it.

The Left has a many pronged approach to destroying this country. Many encourage immoral activity but refuse to hold the perp or themselves responsible for the results.

The solutions are usually simple and straightforward but are ignored.

Rest in peace, Diego my brother. May we meet in heaven. Your government abandoned you, mine invited you. Both are complicit in your death.

I think we’re supposed to feel sorry for their obscene lack of planning demonstrated by NOT BRINGING WATER INTO THE DESERT.

No argument here. He took a risk, it didn’t pay off; happens all the time. Too bad his country blows so bad that he didn’t want to stay there, but that’s hardly the USA’s fault.
