New York Times immigration correspondent Vivian Yee responded defensively to Trump tweeting about the death of NFL player Edwin Jackson by an alleged drunk-driving illegal immigrant, in “Politics At Play In a Death On I-70.” The online headline to the Wednesday story: “How an N.F.L. Player’s Death Turned Into a Political Exhibit.” Of course, the Times regularly uses tragedy to push dubiously connected political issues, like “climate change” in the aftermath of a deadly hurricane.
Reacting late Tuesday to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s comments about illegal immigrants and the DACA program, MSNBC’s The Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell lashed out at Kelly as “the worst White House chief of staff in history” and someone who’s undoubtedly “full of hatred” like President Trump.
After Chief of Staff General John Kelly told reporters Tuesday that the discrepancy between the number of registered DACA recipients and those eligible for the program was probably due to people being too lazy or too fearful to apply for the program, the media went into a tailspin of fury over the adviser’s blunt comments.
Soopermexican at The Right Scoop arrived first at the latest example of Jim Acosta banging a can against Team Trump on Tuesday night for describing some "Dreamers" as too lazy to apply for DACA status to prevent them from deportation. Chief of staff John Kelly told The Washington Post some were "too lazy to get off their asses." This sounds designed to get Acosta's goat.
It's no secret that over the last several weeks liberal outlets like CNN have been aggressively trying to undermine President Donald Trump's push for more border security and aggressive deportation of illegal immigrants -- even wrongly claiming that the illegal immigrant crime rate is lower than that of the general population when research has found that the crime rate is actually much higher.
The February 6 episode of Freeform’s The Fosters titled “Scars” depicts an ICE agent tipping off a teenager about a planned raid at a high school for DACA students who have reached the age of 18 years old. Presumably, the agent has grown a conscience after seeing the horrors of the Trump administration's immigration policy firsthand.
CNN political analyst, Playboy correspondent, and Sentinel Newspapers editor Brian Karem experienced another delusional meltdown on CNN Tuesday afternoon, falsely claiming that President Trump has used MS-13 to label “every immigrant in this country” as “killer and thug and a thief.”
CBS on Tuesday finally covered the tragic story of the Indianapolis Colts player who was killed in a car crash over the weekend after a drunk, illegal alien crashed into him. Yet, This Morning reporter David Begnaud cautioned against “politicizing” the death. NBC is still ignoring the death.
With the liberal media joining Democrats in the ongoing battle to save DACA and for no border wall, CBS and NBC ignored the killing of Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson at the hands of a drunk-driving illegal immigrant during their popular morning and evening shows Monday. Instead, CBS Evening News hyped Space X launching a Tesla Roadster into space and NBC Nightly News whined about how cold the WINTER Olympics were going to be.
On Friday's MSNBC Live, an all-liberal panel consisting of host Stephanie Ruhle, CNBC contributor Ron Insana and MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson fretted over the likely deportation of a U.S. Army veteran, Miguel Perez, who was convicted in 2008 of trying to sell cocaine to an undercover agent. Because he is not a citizen, after he finished his prison sentence in 2016, he was targeted for deportation because of the drug conviction, and, just this week seems to have exhausted all his options in trying to avoid being sent back to Mexico.
On Friday morning, on two different shows, CNN hosts inserted David Duke into the illegal immigration discussion by reading a tweet in which the former KKK leader praised President Donald Trump for dismissing the term "Dreamers" being used by liberals to bolster the image of illegal immigrants who were brought into the country as children.
On Wednesday's Cuomo Prime Time on CNN, host Chris Cuomo ended the show with a commentary in which he complained that "there's a lot of bad info about immigration out there," but then he injected his own misinformation by wrongly claiming that "undocumented folks commit less crime than the rest of us." And the the next morning on New Day, he finally acknowledged the child abuse accusations against a Polish-born doctor that CNN has been preoccupied with who is in danger of deportation.
