PHOENIX — A federal judge ruled Friday that the office of America's self-proclaimed toughest sheriff systematically singled out Latinos in its trademark immigration patrols, marking the first finding by a court that the agency racially profiles people.

Well now. Give that judge a cigar. He has - in only 142-pages - managed to discover the obvious: That it's mostly Mexicans sneaking into the country and that the Sheriff has already figured that out.
Myself, I would have never figured that out. All this time I thought it was Martian aliens swarming across our southern border and would never have thought to single out Mexicans hiding in the bushes along the Rio Grande that couldn't speak a word of English.
Both Mexican and Martian starts with "M". Maybe that's where all the confusion comes from.
