The "public charge" doctrine has been a foundation of American immigration policy going back hundreds of years to colonial times. The notion is that immigrants who are unable to support themselves, thus becoming public charges, should not be admitted or permitted to remain. In 1996, Congress enacted a federal immigration law codifying the public charge principle, and it has remained on the books in the same form ever since. So what do you call the Trump administration's plan to enforce that law? If you're a Trump-hating leftist like MSNBC contributor Fernand Amandi, it is nothing less than: "a white-supremacist, domestic-terror campaign targeting people of color."
CW is the latest network to jump on the horror anthology train with its new series Two Sentence Horror Stories. Unlike Hulu’s Into the Dark or the new Twilight Zone reboot, the first few episodes of this series have been clear and concise, surprisingly focusing mostly on the scares in its twenty-minute runtime. Unfortunately, that changed with the arrival of its latest episode and some illegal immigrant fear mongering.
On Wednesday, CBS Evening News and special contributor Maria Elena Salinas were up in arms because, so far, the Mississippi food processing plants raided by Immigration and Customs Enforcement last week were not being prosecuted. The report was largely designed to make it seem as though the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Mississippi, Mike Hurst was not serious about prosecuting them. But on Thursday, CBS shared more from Salinas’s interview with Hurst. And it turns out, she deceptively omitted a clip of Hurst pledging to prosecute when they had enough evidence.
During Wednesday’s edition of Anderson Cooper 360, the eponymous host aired an excerpt of his lengthy interview with Stephen Colbert, host of The Late Show. Not surprisingly, the interview involved plenty of Trump-bashing on the part of both Cooper and Colbert.
Since the Immigration and Customs Enforcement workplace raid last week, the liberal media have grown increasingly radical in how they cover immigration. In a nearly five-minute-long report on CBS Evening News on Wednesday, special contributor Maria Elena Salinas (you might remember her from her time on Univision) delivered an emotionally drive, one-sided report condemning the raids and presses a U.S. attorney on jailing those who employed illegal immigrants.
On her MSNBC show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell adopted the unhinged talking points of 2020 Democratic candidates as she claimed that comments from Citizenship and Immigration Services Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli proved that Trump administration policies were “anti-Hispanic.”
All the gun control zealots out in full force last week have apparently gone to the beach. An alarming shooting took place at a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices in San Antonio on Tuesday. Local media reported that “multiple shots were fired on two floors targeting ICE officials.” But the Second Amendment saboteurs were AWOL. Hello? Hello? Anybody home? Federal government workers are under literal fire for enforcing our immigration laws and protecting America.
At 3:00 a.m. CT on Tuesday, someone opened fire at a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in San Antonio Texas. Despite both FBI and ICE officials describing the attack as “targeted” and fueled by “political rhetoric,” on Wednesday, over 24 hours after the shooting, NBC and ABC have yet to report the story while CBS This Morning only provided seconds of air time.
Not surprisingly, the panel on Monday’s edition of Deadline: White House did not react favorably to “a new rule announced by the Trump administration” that “makes it harder for low-income legal immigrants who receive food stamps or other government assistance to stay in this country.” According to one member of the panel, this new policy constitutes “white nationalism.”
AMC’s second season of The Terror, titled The Terror: Infamy, follows a supernatural entity stalking a community within Japanese internment camps during World War II. The “terror” therefore refers to both the evil spirit wreaking havoc on people as well as the evils of war, prejudice, and government imprisonment that actually existed during the time. Rest assured that even if the show doesn’t use that history to make “timely” comparisons to today’s border crisis, the liberal critics will.
Continuing the liberal media’s narrative that those working for Immigration and Customs Enforcement were monsters, Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News featured correspondent Gabe Gutierrez trying to shame acting ICE director Matthew Albence with the video of a little girl crying because agents arrested her father.
On Tuesday, both ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning decried the Trump administration enforcing legislation passed over two decades ago that allows the government to take into account how much legal immigrants to the United States rely on public welfare programs when considering granting them citizenship. The network broadcasts immediately channeled liberal “outrage” over the supposedly “hardline” policy.
