Last week (Feb. 5-11, 2017), 680 illegal immigrant were arrested country-wide, from 11 states. And it has been substantiated that 75% of those arrested have been convicted of violent crimes. As far as the other 25%, it is my understanding that these were living with the criminals and were also arrested because they were harboring them. Harboring a criminal is a crime!
According to a Fox News source, here is a list of…
The Crimes of the Illegals Who were Arrested
- AGGRAVATED SEXUAL ABUSE
- SEXUAL ASSAULT OF A MINOR
- LEWD AND LASCIVIOUS ACTS WITH A CHILD
- DRUG TRAFFICKING
- ASSAULT AND BATTERY
- DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE
- WEAPONS CHARGES
And, by the way, unlike some false news reports, these arrests were made very professionally without incident.
But the media has a different spin on it. Here are some of the…
Quotes and Headlines the Media is Putting Out
- What Took Place in Raids in Personal Homes Is Part of the Trump Machine
- Immigrants Wait in Fear after Raids; Trump Takes Credit (A headline of the St. Paul Pioneer Press)
- How Inhuman Is This!

- Immigration Community on High Alert
- News of Immigration Deportation Intensifies Fear
Oh, one more important fact is that, in all the news media’s reporting, there has been no news that the raids were targeted toward those that have committed serious crimes. This is very disturbing and very dishonest reporting.
In fact, it seems to me that what the news media is doing is stirring up fear among all immigrants—and all of us. And they are pointing all the blame for that fear on Donald Trump. I think the media and the radical left are the worse criminals. They are pathetic and very dishonest.
They are also quite hypocritical. In 2013 the Obama administration deported 434, 015 aliens, but there was no upheaval over that—and hardly any media coverage. At least no negative coverage. In fact, Obama was praised for it. But Trump is doing exactly what Obama has done, yet he is being demonized as a racist and a brutalizer of the poor.
Bottom line, all of us Americans are not getting accurate information from the press. And according to Bill O’Reilly, “There is a radical element in this country that wants to destroy our country.”
