In case you missed this little gem over the long weekend, let’s catch up.
Our esteemed president decided to speak about comprehensive immigration reform, which is Spanish for “amnesty.”
Unbeknownst to Dear Leader, a massive shootout was going on near the Arizona border at the same time he was telling the American people that “The southern border is more secure today than at any time in the past 20 years.”
FOX News has the ironic info:
A massive gun battle between rival drug and migrant trafficking gangs near the U.S. border Thursday left 21 people dead and at least six others wounded, prosecutors said.
The fire fight occurred in a sparsely populated area about 12 miles (20 kilometers) from the Arizona border, near the city of Nogales, that is considered a prime corridor for immigrant and drug smuggling.
The Sonora state Attorney General’s Office said in a statement that nine people were captured by police at the scene of the shootings, six of whom had been wounded in the confrontation. Eight vehicles and seven weapons were also seized.
All of the victims were believed to be members of the gangs.
The shootings occurred near a dirt road between the hamlets of Tubutama and Saric, in an area often used by traffickers.
Fact is, we don’t know if the story is referring to drug traffickers or human traffickers. But does it really matter?
