Spanish news agency apologizes to Goldwater

`The Spanish news agency EFE apologized to Republican gubernatorial candidate Don Goldwater, saying a story distributed by the agency on June 21 mischaracterized Goldwater as wanting to use “concentration camps” as part of efforts to combat illegal immigration. [..]

EFE Executive Vice President Emillio Sanchez said in a June 25 letter released Tuesday by Goldwater’s campaign that the EFE stringer who wrote the June 21 article should not have reported that Goldwater supports using “concentration camps.”

“We understand the very serious connotations those words have for the people of the Arizona. Upon further reflection, our investigation has determined that your plan to house illegal prisoners in a tent city is consistent with accepted practices for nonviolent American prisoners in your area,” Sanchez said in the letter.’
