Nun’s death fuels immigration furor?

In Arizona, the shooting death of a rancher blew the lid off simmering anger over border security and helped solidify support for a tough new immigration law. A similar eruption threatens in Virginia following the death of a Catholic nun in a car accident involving a man in the country illegally and accused of drunken driving.

I'm tired of immigration policy being determined by anecdotes and random events.

It's as silly as determining climate policy based upon whether we had a snowy winter or a hot summer.

Why can't we determine policy based upon facts, figures and societal needs?
