Illegal Aliens Set Arizona on Fire

Arizona is suffering the worst fire season in history. Already 784,318 acres have gone up in smoke. Of the several fires still burning merrily away, the worst in terms of property damage has been the Monument Fire:

Arizona's most recent blaze has also been its most destructive toward residences with about 60 homes, a church and several restaurants having burned to the ground.
The fire began June 12 in the Coronado National Memorial south of Sierra Vista near the Mexican border. While containment was listed at 40 percent Tuesday morning, the fire quickly grew to about 27,000 acres. The windswept flames forced the evacuation of more than 10,000 residents in the area.
More than 1,000 people are fighting the fire and 27 aircraft have been committed to the suppression efforts. Firefighting planes and crews from nearby Fort Huachuca have joined as well. Other soldiers are also being trained to assist firefighters if the blaze reaches the base.
The fire is the number one priority fire in the nation, according to Bureau of Land Management/Forest Service spokesperson Diane Drobka.
"The Wallow Fire is bigger, but this has Sierra Vista right in its path," Drobka said.
Power outages have been a repercussion of the fire as smoke and ash have created arcs between electrical lines and cause them to short out.

There aren't many problems in Arizona that aren't caused by illegal aliens. This horrific conflagration is no exception.

Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever explains that there is a 90% to 100% chance that the Mexican colonists Barack Hussein Obama has been bending over backward to help swamp the Southwest set the Monument fire:

Obviously our invasion by Mexico is a national security issue of the highest magnitude. If there is any justification at all for the existence of the tapeworm eating us alive from the District of Columbia, the federal government would do something about it — other than deliberately make it worse.
