Illegal Border Crossings Down After Guard Deployed
According to MSNBC, Illegal border crossing detentions are down in Arizona after the National Guard deployed there.

MSNBC commits some nasty slander against U.S. forces in the article claiming that the ilegals are "...are afraid of the U.S. troops after hearing reports of abuse in Iraq."

A"migrants rights activist" (read "possibly a coyote in his spare time") is directly quoted as saying it's because the illegals "...heard about the troops on television and, because the U.S. Army doesn’t have a very good reputation, they prefer not to cross..." of course he goes on to point the more likely reason they have stopped crossing: the smugglers prices have doubled to nearly $3000 (or about $34,000 pesos).

The article is even sub-headed with the line "Some migrants say they are afraid to cross after hearing of Iraq violence" but no where in the article do I see a direct quote from an actual illegal saying that they are afraid of U.S. forces. Just the one quote from the "migrants rights activist" who runs a "migrants shelter" in Nogales.
A Republican in San Francisco (Yes, he's under deep cover) relays his tales of interest... ...ok, "interest" is a strong and subjective word but you get the point.
