This morning, the “real reporters” at the Associated Press ran a report quoting Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) saying that some voters want an immigration plan that would “round up people … and send them back to Mexico.”
Many MSM outlets ran with the story:

Predictably, some Twitter users went ballistic. How dare anyone suggest that some voters want our country’s immigration laws to be enforced!
Rand Paul wants to "round up"folks and send them back to Mexico. Would we have to send him back to Crankoslavia?—

Just one problem. The quote reported by AP was incorrect:
Thankfully, AP has run a retraction:
It has now been several hours since the AP retracted its story, but many MSM outlets that published the article have neither removed nor retracted nor corrected it.
By the way, Sen. Paul seems to be cut from the same pro-amnesty cloth as President Barack Obama and Sen. Marco Rubio on immigration. So all of you open borders folks who are freaking out can just relax.
