In 2010, Jan Brewer asserted that "our law enforcement agencies" had found decapitated bodies in the desert along the Arizona-Mexican border. Although undocumented immigration from Mexico does lead to deaths in that region, it turned out that the stories about mutilated bodies were unsubstantiated, another one of Brewer and company's fabrications about the immigration issue used to create paranoia rather than a level-headed discussion. Immigration is a complicated socio-economic issue. It can't be reduced to "they want to chop our heads off."

Los Angeles-based "Mextremist" death metal band Brujeria's music focuses on this issue, however they seem perfectly okay with decapitations.
