Univision Co-Opts National Adoption Month for Trans Push

Listen to the Article!

It is known that immigration advocacy is the cornerstone of Univision’s “Agenda Latina,” the first issue among many others for which the network advocates. Transgenderism is also one such issue, and the network is not above inserting its agenda into its coverage by any means necessary.

Watch below as Univision’s English-language broadcast, UNews, used National Adoption Month as a means with which to highlight a transgender teen:

 

 

LORRAINE CACERES, ANCHOR, UNEWS: Welcome back. November is National Adoption Month and thousands of children, many victims of sexual abuse, are hoping to be welcomed into a new forever home and taken out of the foster care system. Xiomara Gonzalez Govea takes a look at what it's like for some of these children to be caught in the system. 

XIOMARA GONZALEZ GOVEA, CORRESPONDENT, UNEWS: (SPANISH) How do you remember your past in Puerto Rico? 

“ARIELLA” TRANS HISPANIC: (SPANISH) My mother was a prostitute.

GONZALEZ GOVEA: “Human trafficking. Prostitutes. My mother was a prostitute.”  This is difficult for her to say, admitting to her mother's illegal trafficking of children, as well as her mother's history of prostitution is perhaps not the most honorable testimony in the life of “Ariella”, a young transgendered girl who’s been part of the crowded foster care system, where she has spent more than 6 long years.

The rest of the report is mostly statistical filler and it is clear that “Ariella” is the centerpiece of the story. 

As the report mentions, “Ariella” is still in foster care. Present tense, which means that “Ariella” is still a CHILD. How does this particular showcasing help “Ariella” overcome what appears to be a long, painful history of trauma?

Given the network’s extensive history with Planned Parenthood, both in partnerships and favorable coverage, it reasonable to infer that Univision doesn’t actually care about adoption. The very odd mention of National Adoption Month here is merely a fig leaf with which to justify its shameful exploitation of a vulnerable teen. 

None of that matters, and nothing else matters to Univision, a liberal PAC with a broadcast license, except its agenda- even if it means aiding and abetting the exploitation of an abused and vulnerable child. Indeed, a new cynical low.

LORRAINE CACERES, ANCHOR, UNEWS: Welcome back. November is National Adoption Month and thousands of children, many victims of sexual abuse, are hoping to be welcomed into a new forever home and taken out of the foster care system. Xiomara Gonzalez Govea takes a look at what it's like for some of these children to be caught in the system. 

XIOMARA GONZALEZ GOVEA, CORRESPONDENT, UNEWS: (SPANISH) How do you remember your past in Puerto Rico? 

“ARIELLA”: (SPANISH) My mother was a prostitute.

GONZALEZ GOVEA: “Human trafficking. Prostitutes. My mother was a prostitute.” This is difficult for her to say, admitting to her mother's illegal trafficking of children, as well as her mother's history of prostitution is perhaps not the most honorable testimony in the life of “Ariella”, a young transgendered girl who’s been part of the crowded foster care system, where she has spent more than 6 long years. She says she's been in foster care for six years, probably like 10 houses. “Ariella” is Puerto Rican, and was taken from her home due to sexual abuse and negligence. She now lives in Florida. Stayed with the third highest number of trafficking incidents and consequently, a large population of young adults who are left having to navigate life after being abused.  Just in 2018, a total of 767 cases of human trafficking were reported in Florida- 149 involving minors. Underage individuals like ”Ariella”, subjected to abuse and aggression from others.  In the U.S., according to the Department of Education, more than two and a half million cases of human trafficking were reported in 2018.  According to Nelson Hincapie, president of the Miami nonprofit organization Voices for Children, vulnerability and instability are what people with malicious intentions prey on to trap and abuse underage children. He says, “it starts with what they call the grooming process...trying to buy the loyalty of one vulnerable person to then exploit him or her.” And that's why it's vital to understand the stats, the number of under aged children exposed to these actions, annually, reported to the authorities. Right now, 125,000 children are hoping to be adopted and be part of a forever home where they can heal or at least be safe from those benefiting from the illegal human trafficking schemes and physical or mental abuse like what “Ariella” endured just a few years ago.
