Arizona Apologizes to Norway for Confusing Alexander Dale Oen with Other Foreigners Who Died There After Long, Hard Swim
Oen's death comes at a time when the constitutionality of Arizona's contentious and nuanced anti-immigration law is being argued before the Supreme Court. State officials blame this situation for the confusion that caused delays in notifying authorities in Norway. Governor Jan Brewer admitted that she misunderstood the report by police that "another foreigner died in Arizona after a long, hard swim."
