NYTimes' Julia Preston Celebrates Illegal Immigrant 'Dreamers' Emergin

December 3rd, 2012 2:09 PM
The New York Times continued to push for amnesty for illegal immigrants, this time on Saturday's front page, courtesy of its most reliable pro-amnesty reporter, Julia Preston, reporting from New Haven, "Young Immigrants Say It's Obama's Time to Act." For the umpteenth time the paper boasted of illegals emerging "from the shadows" (although for a such a frightened…

Surprise: NYT's Coverage of New Obama Immigration Policy Utterly Slant

June 18th, 2012 3:28 PM
President Obama on Friday bypassed Congress to put in place the New York Times' beloved Dream Act by executive order that halted deportation of young people who came to the United States illegally. That merited Saturday's lead story slot, occupied by immigration beat reporter Julia Preston and John Cushman, "Obama To Permit Young Migrants To Remain In U.S." Preston and…

NYT's Preston Again Points to Protests to Suggest AZ Immigration Law U

April 26th, 2012 1:32 PM
Just as she did on Wednesday, the New York Times's pro-amnesty immigration reporter Julia Preston portrayed Arizona's popular crackdown on illegal immigration (now before the Supreme Court) as controversial in "A Hearing And Rallies Over a Law In Arizona." Thursday's edition also featured an above-the-fold front-page photo of a stoic Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer passing "…

NYT's Preston Notes AZ Immigration Law 'Intensely Unpopular Among Lati

April 25th, 2012 11:49 AM
There are politically motivated hearings every day on Capitol Hill. So why did the New York Times single out one in particular for coverage? Likely because it was led by liberal Sen. Chuck Schumer and exploting the Times' favorite cause, the defense of illegal immigrants. Immigration-beat reporter Julia Preston, one of the paper's most reliably pro-amnesty reporters, authored…

Pro-Amnesty NYT Reporter Julia Preston Gushes Over 'A Die-Hard Conserv

April 3rd, 2012 2:01 PM
On Monday Julia Preston, one of the New York Times's most reliably pro-amnesty reporters, slid into Denver bureau chief Kirk Johnson's usual slot of using a news story to promote a different kind of Western Republican (i.e. not one of those harsh conservatives), in this case Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, who is "A Die-Hard Conservative, but Not on Immigrants." He is…

Inspired By Obama, NYT Churns Out Another Sympathetic Story on Illegal

August 23rd, 2011 1:09 PM
There’s a jubilant undercurrent in Julia Preston’s Tuesday report in the New York Times on Obama’s new policy limiting deportations of illegal immigrants who have not committed a crime, “U.S. Issues New Deportation Policy’s First Reprieves.” Preston has a reputation for sympathetic coverage of illegal immigration policy. In December 2010 she lamented a…

New York Times Laments 'Painful Setback' to 'Dream Act' Amnesty for Il

December 21st, 2010 8:31 AM
New York Times reporter Julia Preston’s “news analysis” on Sunday on the Senate defeat of legislation granting amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants, known as the Dream Act by supporters (“Immigration Vote Leaves Obama’s Policy in Disarray”) is a reversal of the emotion displayed in her previous celebratory coverage of even the puniest…

N.Y. Times Promotes DREAM Act Advocates, Who Tar Opponents as 'Anti-Ch

December 18th, 2010 7:44 AM
The New York Times promoted the "DREAM Act" on Saturday with a Julia Preston article that never located a single lobbyist for stricter immigration enforcement. Instead, Preston assisted in publicizing a major administration push: "Five cabinet secretaries have made calls, held news conferences or blogged on the issue." It didn't matter how ridiculous it sounded to border…

The NY Times Finally Slips in Some Unflattering Facts About 'Dream Act

December 9th, 2010 9:49 AM
New York Times reporter Julia Preston provided her predictably pro-amnesty slant in Wednesday story on the apparently deathless Dream Act, a bill up in the lame-duck session of Congress (it passed the House Wednesday night) that would provide amnesty for illegal immigrant students: “Illegal Immigrant Students Await Votes on Legal Status.” With both houses of Congress set to vote…

How Tiny a Protest Is 'News'? N.Y. Times Publicizes a Four-Person Mar

January 5th, 2010 8:02 AM
A “march” from Miami to Washington on behalf of illegal immigrants consisting of a grand total of four marchers somehow merited a 780-word New York Times article by reliably pro-amnesty reporter Julia Preston, “To Overhaul Immigration, Advocates Alter Tactics.”By contrast, a massive anti-Obama rally that attracted over 100,000 people to the Capitol on September 12 resulted in virtually the same…

NYT: U.S. Making Life Miserable for Illegals -- and Their Families in

May 1st, 2008 2:45 PM
Once again, the New York Times is expecting American taxpayers to care not only about the plight of illegal immigrants, but on the hardship imposed on their families back in Latin America because of the fitful U.S. crackdown on illegal immigration. A front-page story on Thursday by Julia Preston blared "Fewer Latino Immigrants Send Money Home." How did the paper find out? From a poll…

NYT: Mexicans 'Being Squeezed' by Decline in Money Sent Home from Ille

October 26th, 2007 2:04 PM
A story from Mexico-based reporter Elisabeth Malkin on Friday's front page trawls for sympathy for poor Mexicans who come to the United States illegally to find work. Malkin went to the town of El Rodeo to find that "Mexicans Miss Money From Workers Up North." (That would be the United States.)At first glance this would seem to be a problem for Mexico. After all, who are we to interfere…
