Time Magazine has an interesting story about the Arizona immigration law that challenges Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s main justification for supporting it. Crime is not out of control along the border with Mexico.

….if the main impetus behind the controversial legislation was, as Arizona Governor Jan Brewer said when she signed it in April, “border-related violence and crime due to illegal immigration.” The fact is, despite the murderous mayhem raging across the border in Mexico, the U.S. side, from San Diego to Brownsville, Texas, is one of the nation’s safest corridors.

According to the FBI, the four large U.S. cities (with populations of at least 500,000) with the lowest violent crime rates — San Diego, Phoenix and the Texas cities of El Paso and Austin — are all in border states.

 Pretty sure that hasn’t been the top story on Fox news lately.
