Did illegals cause the disastrous wildfires in Arizona? Why is the media silent on this? Shouldn’t we know the answer? Is it racism to ask the questions?
From Thirdage.com: “Sen. John McCain has drawn criticism over recent remarks that there is “substantial evidence” that illegal immigrants are partly responsible for the wildfires currently raging in Arizona.
The statement came after McCain toured a large wildfire in the eastern part of the state, one that is believed to have been started by humans. No other details have emerged, however.
McCain said at a news conference that illegal immigrants “have set fires because they wanted to signal others…and they have set fires because they wanted to divert law enforcement agencies.”
The Arizona senator was surprised at the backlash his comments received, telling NBC’s “Today” show in an interview that he was “puzzled” by the criticism.
‘We know that people come across our border illegally…that these fires are sometimes, some of them, caused by this,’ he said. ‘I’m puzzled…that there should be any controversy.’”
