I suppose it's honest reporting using a loose definition. But what if they'd said "Illegal Immigration Raid".
How would people react to "Bank Robbery arrests leave children without parents"?
Most would be scratching their heads saying "WTF?".
An amazing display of somebody so obsessed with their hatred for Donald Trump that they go way outside the boundary of professional journalism and into the realm of extreme, editorial political activism expressed in a manner with hatred that far exceeds any hatred displayed by the actual target of his attacks.
And done by abusing his power to communicate to millions of viewers under the guise of being a professional journalist.
With regards to the child crying. Yeah, it made me feel very bad for her too.
In the field of sales or television its called an effective use of marketing your product. We all have soft spots in our hearts for children, including this one and this topic is actually about children.
However, we are only getting one side of a story...............Trump separating parents from their children.
The reality is that this was for just a brief period and they were returned to the same place that they were arrested at.
More on the next page.
Here's what almost none of the MSM is telling you(no child had both parents taken, and most were 1 day separations and efforts for arrangements for child care were made-though this clearly caused tremendous chaos and was extraordinarily upsetting to the kids):
"According to an ICE news release, "As part of HSI procedures pursuant to this operation, if HSI encountered two alien parents with minor children at home, HSI released one of the parents on humanitarian grounds and returned that individual to the place from which they were arrested. HSI similarly released any single alien parent with minor children a home on humanitarian grounds and physically returned that person to the place where he or she was originally detained. Based on these procedures, it is believed that all children were with at least one of their parents as of last night."
Also, there were approximately 30 people at the plants where the raids took place who were not transported due to humanitarian factors. This could include things like pregnancy, nursing mothers, Cox said, but added that it's case-by-case."
metmike: Bad timing for them to do these raids right after the shootings and the MSM is distorting what actually happened with the parents in these raids to maximize the damage. These raids were planned for a year, with 600 agents involved so apparently, it would have been a big problem to postpone them for X amount of time for a better timing but the timing was exactly the worst imaginable(or best possible for the other side). Still, I would have postponed them for at least a month.
These adults have been given court dates and afforded the rights of citizens or other people in the assumption of innocence, where they will be given the opportunity to show they they are not breaking the US law.
If they are breaking the law, then I imagine they will have the opportunity to go back to their country of origin or make other arrangement for legal citizenship(if possible) and they will also have the opportunity for their children to go with them.
With regards to living in the US illegally with children. What can one say? People with children are not above the law because they have children. I know that these people are good people and just want a better life but that also doesn't put them above the law either.
Good people with children are subject to the same laws of those that don't have children.
Now if these ICE officials just went in and arrested all these people and kept them incarcerated and didn't give all the parents/families special treatment that allowed for arrangements for their children to be cared for during their brief absence, that would be a different story..............but that isn't what happened.
But we didn't hear about that side.
