It wasn’t long ago that the Democrats and their lapdog media tried to blame Clinton’s stunning defeat in the election on what was termed as “Fake News”. This finger pointing quickly began to haunt them, as a majority of the news media slant left and are politically Liberal in nature, with the MSM dominated by the Liberal Left. Since the election, the media has been the subject of discussion often here, as this article is the fifth on the subject. The Liberal media, along with their current war with President Trump, continue to put out reports that misrepresent the facts and cause lot’s of undue fear and anger.
In this case, an AP article on a leaked paper floating around the DHS was put out, with this message:
The Trump administration is considering a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants, including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border, according to a draft memo obtained by The Associated Press.
This was later revealed to be “Fake News” as the document in question never said any such thing. The number 100,000 was never used. What it did say was far less nefarious and more inline with what would be acceptable actions by the government:
To maximize participation by state and local jurisdictions in the enforcement of
federal immigration law, I am directing the Director of ICE to engage with all willing and qualified law enforcement jurisdictions for the purpose of entering into agreements under section 287 g) of the INA.
Quite the difference between what the document says and what the AP wrote. Shameful!
