Pay no attention to the people behind the curtain

Monday, June 05, 2006

Let the retractions roll . . .

From the fine folks who bring you the news:
The man police believe fatally shot two people and wounded three others in South Shore Park last week appears to be a legal resident of the United States, immigration officials said today.

Octaviano Juarez-Corro is a "legal permanent resident of the United States with a green card," said Gail Montenegro, spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The right Cheddarsphere was all about Juarez-Corro's illegality lasty week prompted, if memory serves, by Jeff Wagner's initial accusations. I'm sure they'll be racing to be the first to retract all the anti-immigrant bile . . .

Being legal makes what he did no less excusable. But a picture of the man with the caption "This is the face of illegal immigration" is fear-mongering dishonesty at its worst.
