The cable network Freeform has announced that it is putting together a Party of Five reboot. For fans of the 90s classic, this sounds like good news, though they should know that it’s not quite the show they grew up with. Freeform’s twist on this all-American family is that it’s being replaced by a Mexican immigrant family whose parents have been deported.



On the Thursday edition of MSNBC's The Beat, host Ari Melber showed a pre-recorded interview with liberal actress Alyssa Milano in which they discussed her recent activism against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and her support for abortion rights. Melber also repeated the flawed polling which suggests most Americans support Roe v. Wade, and brought up Milano's invoking the Handmaid's Tale about a fictional American society that oppresses women.



In the aftermath of the Des Moines Register running an op ed by Rob Tibbetts calling for politicians to cease referring to his daughter, Mollie Tibbetts, in the immigration debate, two CNN personalities have repeated the questionable claims that illegal immigrants have a lower rate of committing crimes than native-born U.S. citizens. Additionally, the networks conflated opposition to illegal immigration with being "anti-immigrant" or "racist" toward Hispanics generally.



El aullido de algunas empresas estadounidenses en contra de las nuevas restricciones impuestas por el gobierno de Trump la preferencia de estas por importar a los Estados Unidos cientos de miles de empleados de tecnología que reciben menor paga, sin duda es noticia, pero cuando solo se presenta un lado de la misma, ello se convierte en periodismo deshonesto. Sin embargo, la visión unilateral de las relaciones públicas de dichos intereses corporativos fueron justo lo que presentó el noticiero vespertino Despierta América, de Univisión, en su informe sobre una carta circulada por la “Mesa Redonda Empresarial” en la que se queja sobre la implementación del gobierno de Trump de su política 'Compra americano, contrata americanos' relacionada a las visas H-1B.



On Monday, Newsweek published an article warning the general public about an ACT for America conference honoring ICE department head Thomas Homan, because the Southern Poverty Law Center has described both as promoting a hate agenda. Whether from malice or sheer laziness, outlets like Newsweek a quick to regurgitate SPLC’s specious “hate group” claims.

 


On Monday's Deadline: White House on MSNBC, fill-in host Katy Tur not only repeated the discredited myth that the Barack Obama administration deported more illegal immigrants than previous Presidents, she complained because Donald Trump supporters refused to believe her when she presented them with her flawed data during the 2016 presidential campaign. The segment she was hosting also included the latest example of MSNBC blaming Fox News and conservative talk radio for many voters not believing the liberal media, rather than the media's biased reporting.



Over the past couple of days, CNN and MSNBC have been freaking out over another Trump administration activity that was also done by the Obama administration which the liberal media only just noticed because they're so fixated on trying to find examples of President Donald Trump mistreating immigrants. Even though both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations sometimes denied passports to residents of southern Texas who were suspected of having fraudulent birth certificates that conceal they were actually born in Mexico, a number of liberal anchors have shown shock over questionable reports that such activity might have increased substantially under Trump.



Corporate America’s howling against the Trump administration’s clampdown on its penchant for importing into the U.S. hundreds of thousands of cheaper IT workers is certainly news, but to only present one side of the issue is certainly not honest journalism. And yet one-sided public relations for these corporate interests is just what Univision’s morning show, Despierta América, did when reporting on a recent letter by the Business Roundtable complaining about the Trump administration’s implementation of its ‘Buy American, Hire American’ policy as it relates to H-1B visas.



Debido a su inquietud de que los hispanos que están en el país de manera ilegal así como toda la comunidad hispana se vean mancillados por la revelación de que el presunto asesino de Mollie Tibbetts era un indocumentado de origen mexicano, la Asociación Nacional de Periodistas Hispanos (NAHJ por sus siglas en inglés) ha emitido un llamado perturbador a la autocensura, emplazando a los medios a omitir referencias alusivas a “raza y estatus de ciudadanía” cuando reporten sobre los sospechosos de la comisión de delitos.



As the mid-terms approach, New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters played the electoral race card on the front page of Thursday edition: “In Midterm Vote, Fault Line Forms Concerning Race – Cues From President – Diverse Democratic Slate at a Time of Appeals to Racial Anxiety.” Peters really scraped around to dredge up what he called “racial subtext.”



On Wednesday, CBS This Morning joined CNN in highlighting the case of an illegal immigrant who is suing the government because her one-year-old child tragically died after leaving an ICE detention center where she allegedly contracted an infection. After a complete report ran, co-host John Dickerson incorrectly hinted that the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy was to blame for the death, suggesting that the government agency was not ready for the additional number of detainees, prompting agreement from co-host Gayle King. However, not only were the pair detained and released under the old policy before zero tolerance took effect, but the total number of detainee deaths in FY2018 so far appears to be on track to be no greater than FY2016 which included most of President Barack Obama's final year in office.



The Immigration and Nationality Act mandates that all immigrants and refugees undergo a medical screening examination to determine whether they have an inadmissible health condition. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has technical instructions for medical examination of prospective immigrants in their home countries before they are permitted to enter the U.S. They are screened for communicable and infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, malaria, hepatitis, polio, measles, mumps and HIV.
