“Donald Trump demanded on Friday that any deal to resolve the fate of young undocumented migrants [DREAMers] must be paired with funding for a wall along the southern US border,” reports The Guardian.
How rude. Doesn’t Trump know that only liberals are permitted to “demand” things? The rest of us are to either shut up or ask politely, then accept whatever Chuck Schumer decides.
This opening statement by the Guardian follows a rather sad photo of a mother and her melancholy child. Although the photo’s caption doesn’t name the two as illegal, this is the obvious inference, as both look Hispanic and are seated in front of sign that reads, “Don’t Separate Families.”
“There are about 700,000 so-called Dreamers [sic], undocumented migrants brought to the US as children. In September. Trump announced that he was rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or Daca, a policy implemented by Barack Obama in 2012 that allowed Dreamers to come out of the shadows to study and work legally in the US. Trump placed the fate of the young immigrants squarely in the hands of Congress, giving lawmakers until 5 March to find a legislative solution.”
Well – where to begin with this load of crap, written in a way to sound like factual, objective reporting. And to anyone unfamiliar, this does sound like legitimate, dispassionate reporting. Unfortunately for us – most will read this as real news.
