Blatant Bias Exposed: How Liberals Lie About This Immigration Debate

On Thursday another story about detained immigrant minors broke, this time about a group alleging that they were abused while being held. But the way the story was reported was a perfect example of how the media lies about this immigration debate because while the leftist media has blamed Trump for it, they neglected to mention the incident happened during the Obama years.

The liberal media has continued its hourly assault on President Donald Trump with its constant stream of lies about America’s immigration policy. But Thursday also saw this new wrinkle in the news of the day. It appears that a few illegal aliens filed a lawsuit alleging that they were abused when they were in detention as minors.

The story came from the Associated Press and some of the allegations are shocking:

Multiple detainees say the guards stripped them of their clothes and strapped them to chairs with bags placed over their heads.

“Whenever they used to restrain me and put me in the chair, they would handcuff me,” said a Honduran immigrant who was sent to the facility when he was 15 years old. “Strapped me down all the way, from your feet all the way to your chest, you couldn’t really move. … They have total control over you. They also put a bag over your head. It has little holes; you can see through it. But you feel suffocated with the bag on.”

In addition to the children’s first-hand, translated accounts in court filings, a former child-development specialist who worked inside the facility independently told The Associated Press this week that she saw kids there with bruises and broken bones they blamed on guards. She spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to publicly discuss the children’s cases.

According to the AP, these illegal alien kids had been sent to the facilities in question because authorities suspected them of being members of the criminal gang MS-13.

But, in fact, this report has nothing to do with “Trump’s” so-called “child separation” policy that the liberal media is all worried about. The AP specifically notes, “They were not the children who have been separated from their families under the Trump administration’s recent policy and are now in the government’s care.”

Yep, nothing to do with the left’s current, lie-filled obsession.

But, wait, this may still fit the left’s obsessive story, right? I mean isn’t this proof that Trump’s administration is abusing poor widdle immigrant kids? Well, yes, that is what a host of left-wingers said on social media as soon as this story went live.

But, they only began saying this because they didn’t read the whole AP story. Tucked away in the story was this tidbit (my bold):

The complaint filed by the nonprofit Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs recounts the story of an unnamed 17-year-old Mexican citizen apprehended at the southern border. The teen fled an abusive father and violence fueled by drug cartels to seek asylum in the United States in 2015.

After stops at facilities in Texas and New York, he was transferred to Shenandoah in April 2016 and diagnosed during an initial screening by a psychologist with three mental disorders, including depression. Besides weekly sessions speaking with a counselor, the lawsuit alleges the teen has received no further mental health treatment, such as medications that might help regulate his moods and behavior.

Wait, this stuff happened during the Obama era? Apparently so!

So, the AP did it’s job and liberals are just knee-jerk-reacting morons, right? Well, not really.

You see, the AP’s story mentions Trump all over the place. It is Trump this and Trump that. But, remember, this story started during the Obama era. So, how many times did the AP mention the name “Obama”?

The story mentions Obama twice, but only tangentially and in the first case only to say “but, but, Trump, too.”

Since liberals generally have little to no reading comprehension, you almost understand how so many of them jumped to the conclusion that this story was only about Trump, Trump, Trump. After all, the AP did its level best to obscure Obama’s connection to this case.

This is rightly seen as an Obama era mess…. and how did the liberals react. Well, let us look at a few.

Take the extremist, left-wing, global warming lie pushing Tom Steyer:

Notice how he never mentioned this happened under Obama? Yeah, I’m sure that was juuust a accident.

Indeed, the global-warming liar got just the sort of reaction he wanted from the mind-numbed half-wits who replied to Steyer’s misleading post:

Anyway, it goes on and no like this with every one of these un-informed, low-information liberals thinking this is all Trump’s fault.

But the self-promoting Steyer wasn’t alone. Other left-wingers also lied about this story and claimed that it was all about Trump:

This story is a perfect example of how liberals continue to lie every single day about this story. And use it as a warning that you should never trust anything the left says.
