Politicians are not being honest about the Arizona Border and immigration. A recent report by U.S. Customs and Border Protection shows the border to be one of the least violent areas of the nation.
This report found that, of the largest American cities, the four with the lowest violent crime rates are San Diego, Phoenix, Austin and El Paso, Tex. which is within walking distance of violence-plagued Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.
Politicians like Russell Pearce, Jan Brewer and Sheriff Arpaio are using immigration to create fear, control voters and increase their own popularity the same way George Bush did over WMD's. Additionally it is encouraging violence and hatred toward minorities.
