The camp set up for the Central American caravan in Tijuana was on “lockdown” on Sunday as Mexican residents of the city attempted to storm the area in protest. The unwelcome arrival of the caravan had put tremendous pressure on Tijuana’s resources resulting in many locals taking to the streets in opposition. It was a serious and dangerous development that went completely unreported during ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News Monday evening.
On Monday evening and Tuesday morning, the same CNN that largely ignored actual links earlier this year between Democratic members of Congress and Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan did find time to highlight examples of white supremacists who cheered for Republicans to retain the U.S. Senate in the midterm elections.
On Tuesday's New Day show, as CNN's Alisyn Camerota debated the ACU's Matt Schlapp on border security, the liberal host made her latest claim that immigrants who cross the border without permission are not really breaking they law as long as they seek asylum afterwards. Schlapp tried to school the liberal host on the importance of putting immigrants through a background check system rather than let them sneak into the country unchecked.
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."
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.
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.”
FX’s Mayans M.C. has been a wild card of issues as far as TV goes. We’ve jumped from wall jabs to racist border enforcers to abortion all within seven episodes. This latest week, however, gets us back to what’s really important: taking down Trump.
Between Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning, as a number of MSNBC shows pounced on an internal report by the Department of Homeland Security finding that the agency was not prepared for the extra load when it began implementing the "zero tolerance" policy toward illegal border crossings, there were several MSNBC personalities who declared that the Trump administration "forced" some immigrants to cross into the U.S. illegally by making asylum seekers wait in line outside legal ports of entry.
A few weeks after giving White House advisor Stephen Miller's uncle whom he hardly knows a forum -- not once but twice -- to attack him on immigration, the liberal news network did the same with a rabbi who has not been his spiritual leader since he was a child.
As the dominant liberal media are notorious for conflating legal and illegal immigrants in their coverage of illegals trying to cheat the system, on Friday's Morning Joe, liberal MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff made a rare admission that many Hispanics and legal immigrants do not side with illegal immigrants who sneak across the border with their children as he recalled a recent trip to Florida and discussions with local immigrants in Congressman Carlos Curbelo's district.
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.
