On May 27 in the Monitor, a commentary by Jeffry Gardner referred to President Obama as traitorous due to rhetorical remarks the President made in a welcoming statement to Mexican President Calderón at the White House. The president said in remarks, “In the 21st century, we are not defined by our borders, but by our bonds.” The president was talking about the increasing interdependence of nations, not inviting Mexican nationals across the U.S. border. Mr. Gardner proceeds to unleash some unsubstantiated statistics to prove his point about the president and the Mexican border. He claims that “nearly half of the people locked up for violent crimes in New Mexico are illegal aliens” and that “90 percent of the murder warrants issued in Albuquerque alone are for illegal aliens.” These statistics according to Mr. Gardner are from FBI and Homeland Security reports.
