LA Weekly: Pandering to Illegal Aliens, Ignoring Citizens

The press is all up in arms about illegals and their plight under the Trump Administration.

Why is there any surprise? Trump ran on a platform of enforcing our immigration laws? And yet everyone is upset about this? What is the Los Angeles, liberal basin mindset that makes them so obsessed with the plight of lawless criminals?

No wonder the press is facing steep declines.

They continue pushing a crappy, useless liberal narrative about the poor illegals, all while no one cares about the American citizens who are struggling to get by in this country.

Why does the liberal media and their elite peers in Hollywood and uber-wealthy sections of Los Angeles and New York City care so much about illegal aliens?

What about our homeless, veterans, foster children, too?

Instead, we are hearing about the illegal alien children ...

Since President Trump's Jan. 20 inauguration, previously unseen numbers of undocumented immigrant parents in Los Angeles, fearing the splintering of their families, have taken steps to ensure they have someone to care for their children in the event they are deported ...

Oh, poor babies! Look, parents, if you had not broke this nation's immigration laws, you would have never been in this mess in the first place. There is no one to blame besides yourselves.

The traditional route for appointing a legal guardian is through a court appearance, but that option has proved tricky now that agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement appear to be stalking undocumented immigrants in courthouses to make arrests. 

It's called enforcing our laws. What's the problem, LA Weekly? If you do not like the laws of this nation, then you change them through your elected representatives. The DACA and other executive orders are not the way to deal with these immigration issues.

How big is this illegal alien problem, anyway?

A 2014 report by the Migration Policy Institute estimates that 489,000 children in L.A. County have at least one parent who is undocumented — the highest number of any county in the United States. The same study found that 410,000 of those children are U.S. citizens.

Wow. This is a sticky situation, but this fault does not lie with the law-abiding citizens of this country, and specifically with the state of California. We the People did not create this problem, so do not feel guilt-tripped into doing something about it -- as if it's your fault.

"It used to be that as long as you lived right and went to work you could live without fear. But with the new rules one has to look at things differently." —Areli, an undocumented mother who's filing a caregiver affidavit for her two young daughters

Where do these arrogant people get the idea that they had any right to live and work in the United States in the first place? What part of "illegal" do they not understand?

Most undocumented parents, if detained by ICE and thrust into removal proceedings, would choose to take their children with them, even if the children are U.S. citizens, advocates say.

So who says anything about enforcement breaking up families?! It's simply untrue.

"It's heartbreaking seeing so many parents' concerns about the plight of [their] children if they're arrested or deported while going to work or taking their children to school," Bastida says. "I haven't seen that fear in the community before."

And what about Jamiel Shaw? What about Kate Steinle's parents?

What about them?

The rest of the article focuses on the specific plight of illegal alien parents organizing care for their children when they get deported. Please, liberal, marginalized media, do not bore me the sob stories of illegal aliens who undermined our country's federal immigration laws.

The compassion must return to American citizens of all backgrounds and views. It's time to put Americans First.

So, in the above article, we are subjected to hearing all the sad accounts of illegal aliens ensuring that their children will be safe when they get deported.

Of course, LA Weekly also had to share with us what happens to illegal aliens Mexicans when they are returned to their home country:


Now we have to look at border security as a matter of heaven or hell. Does that make the United States hell? Or Mexico?

José Mares had arrived to work five minutes early one morning in February when four men in street clothes grabbed him in the parking lot. He was mere feet from the shop entrance, a hot coffee and Egg McMuffin in hand. One of the men was wearing a bulletproof vest underneath his shirt. Mares sensed he was being arrested. He didn't know the reason for it, but he didn't resist.

Of course he did not resist. He was in the country illegally. For that reason he should have been deported long ago!

The agents took him 90 miles away to Camarillo, driving in convoy with two other vehicles to a holding center for migrants with outstanding removal orders. Mares noticed large binoculars on the front seat. The agents had had eyes on him for days, they told him. One of them asked why he took an unusual route to work that morning, seeming to insinuate Mares had discovered the agents and was preparing to flee. Mares told them he had run out of coffee that morning and had to stop at McDonald's.

Anyone reading the account will find that the word "illegal" is not mentioned, to give off the impression of unjust police action.

But ICE has every right and necessity to enforce our nation's immigration laws. Mexico, Argentina, China all have immigration laws, too, and they work hard to ensure that they are enforce, do they not?

The agents knew where he lived, they knew where he worked, they knew his daily routine and what route he took to work. "They were watching me," he says, "like I threatened to kill the president or something."

This guy just does not get it. He was in the country illegally, and he took no steps to become legal. There are scores of accounts of men and women who may have illegal status but they get it right! What is the matter with these people? He had a job, he was raising his daughter, and yet he refused to take the necessary steps to become a law-abiding citizen of this country.

That's on him at this point.

"To me, this is a nightmare," he says. "You get taken away from everything you care about, your loved ones, everything. That's the only way I can describe it — it's a nightmare."

Yes, but you were in the country illegally. That's not our fault. Being separated from your family for a time is not as bad as losing your son or daughter forever. Such is the fate for many

The feeling of desperation is what drove him to try to sneak back in.

OH! He breaks the law again!

A week after he was deported, Mares climbed over the border fence and ran. He chose a place where the fence crosses through a busy part of the city. A stranger he met on the street recommended the spot, and some passers-by gave him a boost over the top.

Now we have to read about how this illegal hurt himself while breaking into the United States--again.

This is so shameful. For these stories alone, readers should just throw the LA Weekly rag in the truth and not think twice.

THEN we find out how this person is -- an illegal alien:

José Mares was one of 161 undocumented immigrants netted in the L.A. sweeps that ICE conducted in early February, the first significant enforcement surge of the Trump presidency. The sweeps were part of a nationally coordinated surge of 680 arrests in 11 states. Yet it was not the size of the raid that's notable but, rather, how abruptly ICE had jettisoned the "felons not families" guidelines for removal established under President Obama.

GOOD. Obama's guidelines were unconstitutional in the first place. They should have never been enacted or enforced -- at all!

Trump appeared to endorse the sweeps a few days after Mares was deported, tweeting: "The crackdown on illegal criminals is merely the keeping of my campaign promise. Gang members, drug dealers & others are being removed!" It is the "others" he mentions that most concern advocates for immigrant rights.

ICE under Trump is going after low-hanging fruit, migrants with final orders of removal for a petty misdemeanor offense, according to lawyers who work with the recently deported in Tijuana. 

So, that's more information that the article holds back. Mares is a criminal, or at least he has a further record in addition to being illegal.

Final Reflection

The remainder of the second article follows the "tragic" account of other illegals swept up in the ICE raids.


It's time for the media to write and represent the accounts of American citizens who lost their loved ones to illegal aliens. Where was the story about Sandra Duran, killed by an illegal alien in a hit-and-run in North Hills?

What about the Steinles, whose daughter was murdered, shot by a five-time deportee who had stolen the firearm from a federal agent? After nearly two years, no one is asking about this family and what they have been through. This is beyond incredible--it's a shameful stain on the media industry for ignoring the truth about the devastating consequences of illegal immigration on American citizens.

Perhaps it's time for hard-core patriots to boycott these publications and then signal to the advertisers their non-interest in their goods, too.
