On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough dismisses concerns about the 14,000-person caravan headed toward the US. He claims that the last caravan, in April, "ended up 11 people and a hound dog." Meanwhile, Mika Brzezinski describes the caravan as being prompted by "a "human tragedy of biblical proportions."
The thousands of Central Americans currently making their way through Mexico on their way to the U.S. border have found a champion and cheerleader in veteran Univision news anchor Jorge Ramos. The dual Mexican and U.S. citizen is hosting Univision’s evening newscasts from Mexico this week as he accompanies the caravan, which on his network he calls a “caravan of refugees.”
Tuesday morning the three networks continued their fawning coverage of the thousands of illegal aliens heading to the U.S./Mexico border while ABC and NBC spent additional time worrying that President Trump’s “threats” about the caravan would motivate Republican voters to the polls.
Matthew 7:7 in the Bible is a well-known adage: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” Humane, right?
It’s hard to say if it came from a disdain for the U.S. military, an extension of CNN’s ‘President Trump is literally a third world dictator’ narrative, or some other sinister motive. But in the middle of a segment on the “migrant” caravan making its way to the southern border during Monday’s Prime Time, host Chris Cuomo suggested that the military would end up shooting the over 7,000 people when they got to the border in order to turn them away.
The New York Times reported from Omaha on Saturday: “Trump Seizes On Migrant Caravan to Rev Up Republican Voters.” "Barely two weeks away from an election that threatens to sweep Republicans from power in the House of Representatives and dash any lingering hope of conservative immigration reform, the party, led by President Trump, is leaning more aggressively into dark portrayals of undocumented immigrants in a bid to galvanize voters. Mr. Trump, whose political appeal among his core voters has largely been rooted in warnings about illegal immigration as a threat to American security, sovereignty and identity, has stepped up his hard-line, inflammatory attacks on Latin American migrants...."
On Monday’s The View, the show started off with the hosts ripping into President Trump and “the right” for speaking out against the caravan of illegal aliens marching towards the U.S./Mexico border. Meghan McCain was the only co-host to argue for stronger immigration laws, as the rest of the hosts complained about racism and the lack of “humanity” the President displayed.
On Monday, all three broadcast network morning shows offered a heroic portrayal of the caravan of thousands of illegal immigrants heading to the U.S. border from Central America. Anchors and correspondents were particularly thrilled by the group “defying” President Trump’s demand that they turn back, being “undeterred” from “their mission to get to America.”
After the New York Times shared a leaked White House memo that suggested the Trump administration would cut Obama era policies which gave special privileges and protections to those who identified as “transgender,” the media has reacted predictably with outrage. On CNN’s New Day Monday, political analyst John Avlon and hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota used the gender issue as well as the issue of illegal immigration to rally viewers to vote against President Trump’s “lies, bigotry and fear” in the upcoming November election.
In the run-up to the mid-term elections and in lock-step with the Democrats, Univision’s evening news is once again deliberately and dishonestly portraying opposition to illegal immigration as if it also meant opposition to legal immigration and legal immigrants in the United States.
At a recent campaign rally in Elko, Nevada, President Trump told the crowd that Democrats were “openly inviting millions of illegal aliens to break our laws, violate our borders and overwhelm our nation. The Democrats want caravans. They like the caravans.” On Sunday, the liberal journalists of ABC’s Good Morning America were irritated that Trump would call them out and claimed there was no proof of that and said the allegation was “unfounded”.
NBC’s Will and Grace took on the issue of illegal immigration and the border wall on Thursday’s episode, “Tex and the City,” as well as painted Texas as a “homophobic” state that beats up gay kids “for sport.” A jailed illegal immigrant is also advised to “do what other immigrants do to try to get in legally, like…be white, or look white, or...marry the president.”
