Hannity cited Examiner.com report that falsely attributed quote to CRS. As Media Matters Deputy Research Director Simon Maloy noted, the Examiner.com article Hannity cited misattributed quotes from Rep. Lamar Smith's (R-TX) August 25 press release to CRS. In one instance, Examiner.com reporter Kimberly Dvorak altered a quote from President Obama to change its meaning, wrongly sourced it to the CRS, and falsely claimed it refuted Obama's August 22 radio address.
Hannity previously advanced myth that health care bills will cover undocumented immigrants

These thugs obviously have no problem with virtually giving the U.S. the bird.

And believe me when I say that the type of money that they're making indicates that they have help in high places on the "inside."
Now that the kingpins of the Cali cartel in Colombia have been arrested, Mexico’s drug traffickers have emerged as the most powerful in the Western Hemisphere—and they operate right along the U.S. border. What the Medellín and Cali cartels once were for U.S. drug warriors, the Tijuana, Chihuahua and Gulf cartels will now become: high-profile targets.
But Americans are about to learn that cracking down on the Mexican drug traffickers will be far more difficult than shutting down their Colombian counterparts. Not only are illicit drugs already among the most dynamic sectors of the ailing Mexican economy, beating even oil as a source of hard currency, but traffickers from the three major cartels have formed strategic alliances with power brokers in the country’s Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI.
Hundreds Arrested in Cross-Country Campaign Against Drug Cartel ...DEA Acting Administrator Michele M. Leonhart concluded that "we have disrupted this cartel's domestic operations." Federal and state narcotics-related charges have been unsealed against associates of the Sinaloa Cartel in California, Minnesota and Maryland. But the cartel's influence stretches even farther. Other organizations with ties to those cases have been busted by authorities in parts of Minnesota, New York, Arizona, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Texas...

Why would they even want to add a more powerful enemy with everything they are facing in Mexico?
