    Immigrant deaths in Arizona desert soaring in July

    PHOENIX (AP) - The number of deaths among illegal immigrants crossing the Arizona desert from Mexico is soaring so high this month that the medical examiner's office that handles the bodies is using a refrigerated truck to store some of them, the chief examiner said Friday.

    The bodies of 40 illegal immigrants have been brought to the office of Pima County Medical Examiner Dr. Bruce Parks since July 1. At that rate, Parks said the deaths could top the single-month record of 68 in July 2005 since his office began tracking them in 2000.

    "Right now, at the halfway point of the month, to have so many is just a very bad sign," he said. "It's definitely on course to perhaps be the deadliest month of all time."

    From Jan. 1 to July 15, the office has handled the bodies of 134 illegal immigrants, up from 93 at the same time last year and 102 in 2008. In 2007, when the office recorded the highest annual deaths of illegal immigrants, 140 bodies had been taken there through July 15.

    Parks said his office, which handles immigrant bodies from three counties, is currently storing roughly 250 bodies and had to start using a refrigerated truck because of the increase in immigrant deaths this month.

    More reason to make immigration reform happen. More reason to make it harder to be here illegally, to work here... to save their lives.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    All the more reason to support new immigration audits now being put in place by Obama

    WASHINGTON — Texas businesses that hired illegal workers or failed to follow immigration regulations have been fined more than $600,000 since October, though few resulted in criminal prosecutions, federal records show.

    Please don't pretend that somebody who supports the torture - err excuse me - 'interrogation techniques' in Guantanamo gives too ****s about illegal immigrants dying. You only making yourself look even more dishonest than you already are.

    He wouldn't sue them unless he and his legal council saw rightful violations of the consitution concerning this law. He's a constiutional professor and lawyer, he's probably right and the courts will decide. You snicker now but trust me he's right on this issue and will win in court.

    No. You believe in using people's deaths for political expedience. You don't give a **** about illegal immigrants anymore than I honestly care about some missing kid in nowhere'sville USA. Your 24 style scenarios don't exist in real life. Get over it. The best part about it is you make a thread on these people under such false pretenses. Do you make a thread on all the fishermen who die every year? What about the dozens of people who die in California from street violence? No, this is just a thread you made to push an agenda. You don't really care about 'saving lives'. Don't insult your own intelligence.

    So now he is a constitutional lawyer and not a politician. Wish he would go into practice.

    On the lawsuit, I hope it goes straight to the Supreme Court as it will get there anyway. Might as well save the time and money. But maybe wants to keep this afloat for the 2010 elections. What do you think the professor wants.
