After concerned Americans donated $500,000 to Arizona’s defense fund, the Associated Press finally realizes that they truly want their borders secured:

Retirees and other residents from all over the country were among those who donated nearly $500,000 to help Arizona defend its immigration enforcement law, with most chipping in $100 or less, according to an analysis of documents obtained Thursday by The Associated Press.

That logically impresses the leftists at the Associated Press, who always pretend that the only ones supporting conservative policies are the rich and powerful:

Website contributions came from all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, including nearly 2,000 from Arizona. Donations ranged from $5 to $2,000, with the vast majority between $10 and $100.

The AP examined about a quarter of the fund’s total contributions, and found only two that came from businesses.

In other words, they tried to discredit the defense fund, but failed. The AP’s conclusion:

The willingness of thousands of individual Americans to contribute to the Arizona fund illustrates broad concern and frustration over border security and illegal immigration. The state’s legislation has since renewed calls for broader immigration changes.

The more the White House goes after Arizona for passing a (rather strict) anti-illegal immigration law, the more out of touch they prove themselves to be with the average American. Even the Obama administration‘s best friend in the mainstream media, the AP, seems to understand this.
