The liberal mainstream media is having a field day reporting about the few illegal aliens being arrested for deportation. They talk about how terrible Trump is by breaking up families and threatening businesses. Every day, the news is filled with images and interviews with protesters and illegals. The reports are given in such a way as to vilify President Donald Trump and make him to be some unfeeling, cold-hearted bigoted hater.
Last week, the same liberal mainstream media made a spectacle of a nationwide liberal protest called ‘Day Without Immigrants.’ It’s a clear example of how biased the liberal news is because nothing Trump has done even suggests that he’s against legal immigrants.
Thousands of American citizens, legal and illegal immigrants walked off their jobs and out of classrooms all across the nation in protest against Trump and his executive order. The mainstream media reported on the thousands of protesters and they reported on how some restaurants and other businesses closed for the day in solidarity with the Day Without Immigrants protest. Ironically, one restaurant fired 12 Hispanic workers for not showing up to work in order to take part in the protest. They now say it’s unfair that they were terminated, but no one looks at it from the perspective of the employer who has a restaurant to open and run. If workers are excused for just not showing up to work for what they believe to be a worthwhile cause, then how can any employer rely on his staff to show up any day? Liberals can find an excuse to protest every day, so how many days should employees be allowed to just not show up for work and leave the employer stranded?
Trump fully supports legal immigration and legal immigrants already here. His executive order to stop immigration and acceptance of refugees was only TEMPORARY in order to improve and tighten the vetting system used to screen legal immigrants and refugees. There are several examples of how the vetting system used by the Obama administration failed to keep out some individuals who should never have been allowed to enter the United States. I speak specifically of Tashfeen Malik and several others like her.
Even though liberals are celebrating the rulings of liberal judges who blocked Trump’s order, they fail to realize that most of the terrorist attacks taking place in European countries have been carried out by refugees that were not properly screened. Even Syria’s President Assad said that when the judges blocked Trump’s order that many terrorists flocked to the US disguised as refugees, and that’s exactly what President Trump wanted to prevent.
However, no one seemed to be reporting about the same thing happening during Obama’s presidency when his immigration officers made raids, arrested illegals and forced the closure of restaurants.
On October 18, 2016, less than a month before the November election, Immigration and Customs agents raided a number of restaurants where they arrested and detained a number of illegal aliens.
In Buffalo, New York, ICE agents entered the Agave Restaurant and arrested a 19-year-old cook named Sergio Roblero. He came to the US from Chiapas, Mexico on a work visa and then overstayed his work visa and never bothered to try to renew it. Consequently, he was arrested. Three of the ‘sister restaurants’ of Agave were also raided by OBAMA’s ICE agents leading to the arrests of 25 illegal aliens. Of the four restaurants raided by Obama’s ICE agents, only one has yet to reopen its doors for business. The other three remain closed.
But where is the mainstream media coverage of how the arrest of illegal aliens have resulted in the closing of businesses and loss of jobs and income for Americans, under the regime of Barack Obama? Why is the mainstream media feasting on similar things under Trump, but totally ignored the very same thing happening under Obama? When is the last time you heard the liberal mainstream media report that during Obama’s tenure in the White House, around 3 million illegals were arrested and deported?
Yet, the media is focusing on a few dozen arrests of illegals here and there under Trump, but ignored the 3 million arrests made under Obama. This is a clear example of the worst kind of journalism there is – biased, twisted and agenda driven instead of an unbiased reporting of the truth.
