John McCain (R-AZ) says undocumented immigrants are to blame for the massive wildfires that have ravaged Arizona.Reality:
"There is substantial evidence that some of these fires are caused by people who have crossed our border illegally," McCain, said at a press conference Saturday after touring the Wallow fire, which began on May 29 and has burned over 500,000 acres to date.
“They have set fires because they signal others, they have set fires to keep warm, and they have set fires in order to divert law enforcement agents and agencies from them,” McCain said. “The answer to that part of the problem is to get a secure border."
Two cousins charged with accidentally causing the largest wildfire in Arizona history have pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges after reaching an agreement with prosecutors.There clearly is a difference between McCain's "substantial evidence" and, you know, real evidence.
Caleb Malboeuf and David Malboeuf each face up to a year in jail and a $10,000 fine after entering pleas Tuesday in federal magistrate court.
The Malboeufs were camping in eastern Arizona last May when their campfire spread outside its ring.
