    In a news conference Saturday, Senator John McCain blamed the fires that have devastated Arizona, burning through over 700,000 acres so far, on illegal immigrants, CNN reports. When asked how he could explain such record fires and how he would fix them, McCain said he was "concerned about the border." He said that illegal immigrants "set fires because they want to signal each other, they set fires to keep warm, and to divert law enforcement and agencies."

    The senator said that "there is substantial evidence that some of these fires have been caused by people who have crossed our border illegally." He did not, however, offer any details of this "substantial" evidence. But he did use this claim as a platform to propose this solution to the fires: "The answer to that part of the problem is to get a secure border," he said.

    John McCain Blames Arizona Fires on Illegal Immigrants

    This is the same guy who had the courage to state in a nationally televised presidential debate:

    "We cannot deport 8 million illegal mexicans because we do not have 8 million handcuffs." :eek: :eek:

    Yeah right... the country that put a man on the moon, has a defence budget larger than the next highest 17 countries combined and is currently occupying two foreign countries located half a world away suddenly don't have the material means to deport illegal immigrants to a neighboring country. This qualifies as a lame excuse even in Haiti.

    The fact that a US senator/presidential candidate wasn't even afraid to spew this kind of garbage on primetime TV is a testament to the fact that US politicians wipe their collective arses with any opposition to illegal immigration coming from their constituencies.

    And the fact that his political career survived for even 1 second after that statement is proof enough that the american people is not willing to put the necessary pressure on their political representatives to solve the issue.

    It's surprising that after many similar outrageous statements made by prominent american politicians (that weren't even highlighted in the media let alone generate a virulent national reaction as they should) so many people still find it necessary to turn Mexico into a scapegoat.

    Human ability to blame their own failures on outside agents and factors does seem to know no boundaries.

    How is it when anyone makes a statement against illegal aliens it is always "outrageous."? It has been a long standing fact that illegal aliens have been starting fires to distract from illegal crossings and drug smuggling.

    Mexico is beyond scapegoat. It is the most corrupt and violent country in the world. It is a cesspool of corruption and really need to be nuked and start all over. And the corruption is spilling over like a epidemic spreading across the border. Just look at the statistics on illegal aliens and crime.
    There is nothing good in Mexico that is way it's people are leaving. and Mexico is it's people. I see the crime, fraud, dishonesty and filth, not dirt, that illegal aliens bring with them. I know a hard working family that need to be in jail. The father works on cars and illegal pass smog. Mother is dealing drugs with daughter. Daughter married into citizenship.
    There is nothing positive about illegal immigration.
    McCain knows what he is talking about and being from Pinal County Arizona I have know for over 60 years how it affects Arizona.
    20 million illegal aliens in this country tells us that ICE is not doing it's job. adn if states don't do it, it will not get done.
    Arizona and Ga are well within their right and sooner than later there will be too many state to sue.
    Call me a racist, a bigot but protect my country from illegal invaders and occupiers. Racists, bigots, zenophia is just words. I have been called worse. And that family of hard working illegals are my family.

    Illegal aliens don't know anything other than dis-honesty and they teach it to their children and handed down from generation to generations.
