A Decline in Illegals??

Comment:. The headlined "decline" is based on the "fact" that there were fewer illegals apprehended crossing the border compared to AZ last year - it does go on to hint that there was an increase in the NM and Yuma sector. It also notes that there was an INCREASE in deaths of crossing illegals. How do we combat the illegal alien lobby with this type of reporting to the people who rarely read beyond the headline

This must be an important article (propaganda) - at least 57 instances of it being published across the country in the last 24 hours.

A few bold papers did modify the headline and interpretation - e.g. see AZ Republic.
