On Saturday, the media had a collective panic attack over Immigration and Customs Enforcement arresting a illegal alien transporting his, also illegal alien and pregnant wife, to a hospital for an expensive C-section procedure. The media forgot one thing, the man is wanted for MURDER in Mexico:
Joel Arrona Lara, 36, was detained at a gas station in San Bernardino, California, while he and his wife were on their way to the hospital for her cesarean section. He reportedly had been living in the U.S. illegally for 12 years.
Footage from the gas station shows two ICE agents approaching Lara’s vehicle. The two agents then walked him to their squad car in handcuffs.
“Mr. Arrona-Lara was brought to ICE’s attention due to an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Mexico on homicide charges,” ICE spokeswoman Lori Haley told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
A GoFundMe page was set up for the family, and it has surpassed its goal with over $6,000 raised thus far.
As news spread of Lara’s arrest, many expressed their dismay at ICE’s supposed cruelty. The attacks on ICE began before people knew why the immigration agency had taken him into custody.
The arrest also fueled the calls for ICE to be abolished — a movement that has gained significant traction over the last several of months.
ICE picked up the man because he had a warrant out for him because he MURDERED someone. They could —AND SHOULD— have also picked up his illegal alien wife and deported her too.
CBS News, in their own broadcast describing the “horrible” sob story, talks to the family’s lawyer who announces that the man’s wife is also here illegally too. How was the wife getting to use public services here as an illegal alien? Who is paying for this illegal alien’s expensive medical care?
The lawyer told CBS, after its reporters asked him if he knew of any murder warrant for his arrest, that he did not know of any warrant out for the husband and that he had not “verified it.”
CBS, in hearing this, described it as if there was in fact no warrant and that ICE’s charge that the man was wanted for murder was without merit. Of course, viewers would not have even seen their spin if they did not stay through the entire broadcast of the situation, this part aired three quarters into their story after they laid the groundwork to gain the viewer’s sympathy.
Was Trump right when he said that the fake news press were the “enemies of the people” a few weeks ago? I am firmly in the “yes” camp.
