A college football announcer has been suspended for saying the obvious, and it’s unclear why he offended.
Gary Hahn, a sportscaster for North Carolina State, was broadcasting the Wolfpack’s game on Friday against the Maryland Terrapins. At one point, he shared an update from the Sun Bowl, which was being played in El Paso, Texas.
“And amongst all the illegal aliens down in El Paso,” Hahn shared, “it’s UCLA 14 and Pittsburgh 6.”
According to ESPN, Learfield Communications, the company that holds the rights to broadcast NC State’s sports, acknowledged in a statement that he had been suspended indefinitely “following comments made during today’s Duke’s Mayo Bowl radio broadcast.”

Hahn has broadcast NC State’s football and men’s basketball games since 1991.
Neither the national media nor the local media that reported on the suspension clarified what exactly Hahn said that earned his suspension.
As some news reports noted, the city of El Paso has declared a local state of emergency because of the tidal wave of illegal immigrants. Additionally, the Sun Bowl had to cancel the “fan fiesta” event that accompanied the game because the city is using its civic center to temporarily house illegal immigrants.
Liberals, naturally, called Hahn a racist, although they cannot explain why it is racist to point out that El Paso is swamped by illegal immigrants under President Joe Biden’s open-borders policies.
One Twitter user alluded to that fact with the obvious question:
“How did he get suspended for this? Everyone wants illegals here but when you say they’re here, you get in trouble?”
