In an interview with Fox News, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer said, “We cannot afford all this illegal immigration and everything that comes with it, everything from the crime and to the drugs and the kidnappings and the extortion and the beheadings.”
“Our law enforcement agencies have found bodies in the desert, either buried or just lying out there, that have been beheaded,” she added.
The Arizona Guardian followed up on Brewer’s remarks, finding them completely false.
A spokesman for Gov. Brewer told the paper in response, “I’m not aware of any statements where the governor specifies where any crimes were committed,” saying he thinks that Brewer was speaking about beheadings that have occurred in Mexico which could spread to Arizona.
