CBS's 'FBI' Portrays an Illegal Alien Dad Desperate to Save His Daughter

March 20th, 2024 1:15 AM

Network television regularly portrays illegal aliens as sympathetic characters. Last night's episode of CBS' FBI did exactly that.

In the episode, "Sacrifice," the FBI is called in on a kidnapping case. The victim is Matthew Sawyer (Christian Conn), director of a New York City shelter housing "migrants."  "Migrants" is deceptive left-wing code for illegal aliens.

The mayor's office called the FBI because the "migrant thing's a hot button issue for them." Footage of the overcrowded shelter had been leaked to the press, embarrassing the mayor, so cameras outside the shelter were disabled. Virtue-signaling as a sanctuary city has its costs. 

The FBI's first suspect in the case is a white veteran named James Dunn (Quinn M. Johnson). Dunn stalked Sawyer. FBI analyst Kelly Moran (Taylor Anthony Miller) gives lead agent Jubal Valentine (Jeremy Sisto) a summary of Dunn's profile. The dialogue is a left-wing fanfiction caricature of open border opponents.

Valentine: Kelly, what are you reading? You think this guy is a viable threat?

Moran: Based on his hate-filled social media posts, I'd say yes. Over 100 in the past two weeks. Most about immigration being the left's way of destroying white America. 

Agents Stuart Scola (John Boyd) and Tiffany Wallace (Katherine Renee Kane) bring Dunn in for interrogation and discover that his girlfriend was robbed and killed by illegals two months earlier.

Wallace: We've seen your social media posts.

Scola: You specifically said he must pay for what he's done.

Dunn: He should. Everyone associated with the problem should. They're the reason my girlfriend's dead.

Scola: How's that?

Dunn: She was robbed and shot by illegals a couple months ago. They were staying at the migrant center.

Wallace: So, you abducted Sawyer as revenge?

Dunn: No. No, I wouldn't waste my time on that clueless bastard.

Scola: You just stalk him for months.

Dunn: He doesn't deserve to live in peace. He--I want him looking over his shoulder at all times. But I'm not a killer. And I'm done talking. I want a lawyer. 

The episode at least gets a point for acknowledging violent illegal alien crime, if only for a few seconds of dialogue. 

Dunn has an alibi and is soon crossed off the list of suspects. The kidnapper is instead one of the shelter's "migrants," a man named Hector Ramirez (Nick Gomez).

Ramirez is holding the shelter director and his wife hostage in their suburban home. Despite being a hostage-taker, his character is ultimately shown in a heart-wrenching, pitying light.

It turns out Ramirez is desperate to save his beloved 13-year-old daughter. She was kidnapped from the shelter by a man who looks similar to Sawyer. Ramirez filed a missing person's report, but nobody cared. He wants law enforcement to find his girl.

The FBI investigates and quickly learns that a white American linen worker with a long rap sheet of child predation took Ramirez' daughter from the shelter.

We also learn that Ramirez was a police officer in Mexico, and his wife was beheaded because he fought the cartels. The writers created an illegal alien character who fought the very cartels that illegally smuggle people over the U.S. border. Illegal alien children are also regularly sex trafficked by said cartels and their enablers, but this episode ignores the larger forces involved in trafficking. 

When Ramirez learns that Sawyer is not involved, he releases the director and his wife in exchange for an agent, Maggie Bell (Missy Peregrym), and holds her until the Bureau finds his daughter.

While waiting for his daughter's rescue, Ramirez tells Bell that he came to America to protect his child.

Ramirez: That's why we come here to America. It's for her. It's for her future. I can't lose her. [Crying] I can't.

Bell: Okay, we're so close to finding her.

Ramirez: Yeah, that's what I would say. I've worked sex trafficking cases. You either find the girl right away or-- [sobbing] 

Criminals sex offenders crossing over our wide open border is one of the most disturbing consequences of unvetted illegals. This episode turns that problem on its head -- the illegal immigrant is instead a former cop who fought sex offenders. 

Television procedurals almost never use true stories of sex criminals illegally entering the U.S as a plot device. Such horrors go against the open borders narrative and must be suppressed.

The show ends with agents shooting the pedophile and safely rescuing Ramirez' daughter. The audience naturally feels pity for Ramirez and hopes he and his daughter will be reunited.

The episode dutifully follows Hollywood television rules on illegal immigration: an illegal must be a sympathetic character whose situation tugs at your heart strings and the villains must be American white guys. In trying to manipulate an audience, FBI checked all the left-wing boxes this week.
