Accuracy in Media

The Obama administration continues to aid illegal immigrants after they cross the border, allowing them to take up residence throughout the states under the pretense that these persons ultimately await a deportation hearing in the offing. And despite promises that the Obama administration’s immigration apparatus would focus on the criminal element, this administration is also failing to deport criminal aliens when they are released from U.S. jails.

The administration’s current refusal to enforce the law resembles amnesty for all, much like the amnesty proposed by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Yet the liberal media deliberately fail, time and again, to report the truth about how many illegal aliens are entering the U.S. Actually, they fail to report on illegal immigration at all—unless it is in the context of undermining Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump or praising Mrs. Clinton.

For example, Bloomberg’s Alan Bjerga reports that Trump is leading an “immigration backlash” that is hurting farmers and causing crops to “rot.”

Bjerga quotes a farmer, a son of Mexican immigrants, as saying, “The rhetoric that’s getting preached is pushing xenophobia…You can’t call an immigrant a murderer. You can’t paint them with that brush.”

We have long reported that mainstream media pundits prefer to describe the immigration debate in terms of illegal immigrants’ humanity, evoking sympathy for the downtrodden. However, the Obama administration continues to fail to deport dangerous criminals.

As we have reported, Government Accountability Office data shows that approximately 250,000 illegal aliens in the United States committed nearly three million crimes. “Roughly 50 percent were arrested at least once for either assault, homicide, robbery, sex crimes or kidnapping,” wrote James Simpson for AIM.

Mrs. Clinton has committed to not deport illegal immigrant children from the United States, nor would she deport any illegal immigrant without a criminal record. “That’s what, that’s what I’m telling you,” she said in March. “I do not want to see them deported. I want to see them on a path to citizenship. That is exactly what I will do.” The message she’s sending is, if you can make it across our porous Southern border, we won’t send you back.

“Clinton was one-upping the Obama administration’s policy of letting illegal immigrants who claim to be ‘children’ and their parents remain in the United States indefinitely,” writes Michael Barone for RealClearPolitics on June 7. “In effect she is calling for open borders, something that goes even beyond Barack Obama’s executive action, which has been ruled illegal by a Texas federal judge and appeals court.”

This, ultimately, is a false dilemma. Open borders are almost here. After all, the Obama administration is not deporting some of those who have committed crimes, and it is busy busing illegal aliens without paperwork. Judicial Watch reports that Border Patrol sources have told it that “The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is quietly transporting illegal immigrants from the Mexican border to Phoenix and releasing them without proper processing or issuing court appearance documents…”

“They’re telling us to put them [the illegal immigrants] on a bus and let them go,” a law enforcement official recently told Judicial Watch. The non-profit watchdog organization reports that “Outraged Border Patrol agents and supervisors on the front lines say illegal immigrants are being released in droves because there’s no room to keep them in detention.”

The administration’s failure to deal with the criminal aspect of illegal immigration also threatens the safety of average Americans throughout the country. Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX) told Adam Kredo of The Washington Free Beacon that “the administration is trying to suppress information about the release of some 86,000 criminal illegal immigrants who have committed 231,000 crimes in just the past two and a half years.” The administration is not deporting these criminals after they are released from U.S. prisons, reports Kredo.

These lax border policies come as the Obama administration has even more money to spend combatting illegal immigration than ever before. According to Kredo, Immigration and Customs Enforcement deported 410,000 aliens in 2012 on a budget of $2.8 billion. With $3.5 billion in funds, ICE deported nearly half as many illegal aliens—just over 235,000 aliens in 2015.

Breitbart’s Katie McHugh outlines some of the human cost exacted by criminal illegal aliens during the Obama administration:

  • “Two illegal aliens bound and beat an elderly Minnesota farmer to death after he hired them to paint his house last April.”
  • “Six MS-13 gang members murdered three and dismembered them in Virginia parks between 2013 and 2014.”
  • “Another, grinning illegal alien stabbed a father of two to death and ripped out his liver for police to see.”
  • “Yet another illegal alien struck a young Texas woman riding her bike in March, dragging her for nearly 2,000 feet while ignoring her screams, leaving her disfigured and permanently disabled as he fled the scene.”

This is all occurring in conjunction with two other matters that are both lawless and very disturbing. One is the effort by the administration to enable non-citizens to vote in this year’s presidential election. The other is the absolute lying to and defiance of a federal judge’s orders to stop processing DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) applications, pursuant to a lawsuit brought by 26 states against the Obama administration’s executive actions. The federal judge, Andrew S. Hanen, initially required as part of his ruling that Department of Justice lawyers receive ethical training, but now has ruled that the department has “a chance to suggest its own punishment for having repeatedly misled the federal court,” according to The Washington Times.

In the meantime illegal immigrants may be taking advantage of Obama’s lax, pro-family immigration policies by kidnapping children to bring along with them across the border, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Leon Fresco recently said. By appearing as families these illegal immigrants hope to receive a free pass into the continental U.S. Neither Fresco, ICE, nor Customs and Border Protection would answer The Washington Times’ questions about this matter.

As the Obama administration pursues an open borders policy the mainstream media continue to look the other way no matter how many Americans are at risk. Or, like Univision’s Jorge Ramos, pundits push for the candidates to agree to lax immigration policies that harm America’s future.

    Not only are alien invaders being encouraged to come, essentially helped across the border by the regime and then supported by the government in a way that American citizens are not, illegals are being covertly distributed to strategic centers around the country by the Homeland “Security” department. The goal is clearly to have mestizo detachments ready in every state for violence of the type we saw in San Jose, in order to intimidate supporters of Donald Trump and assist in the stealing of the election, the establishment of a one-party dictatorship and the mexicanization of the country. The choice now is no longer between Donald Trump and someone you might like better; the choice is between Donald Trump and Pancho Villa.

    Obama could not care less about American lives. He is a globalist mascot.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    Now, are any of you “Accuracy” in Media readers ready for the truth? During the W. administration, the number of illegal immigrants in the US DOUBLED. Or really close to doubled. Since Obama took office, the number is … DOWN. The immigration “issue” is just another in a long, long line of right wing “scandals” and wedge issues used to keep you misinformed, pissed off, and voting for Republicans. In short, it’s a con job. The economy and job market suck due to 40 years of supply side economics. Obama certainly isn’t blameless but putting this all on the Democrats is not only wrong, it’s laughable. Wake up, people.

  • peterpan3

    He probably received money for his campaigns from these crooked countries So now he has to pay them back with no laws enforced, border open, criminals released back onto US soil. Follow the money, or maybe Obama is just evil

    Barack Hussein Obama is a traitor. This is an established fact. He no longer cares what the America people think, and, frankly, why should he? He has been allowed to run amok for over 7 years.. issuing directives, signing executive orders, forming alliances with the United Nations, such as the Strong City Network, which allows foreign law enforcement to police the American people. He has threatened our constitutional rights, particularly the 1st and 2nd amendments.. and? Nobody is willing or able to stop him. Congress is as corrupt as he is, they will not impeach.. The military can not, or will not, arrest him. So, what is left? We The People are going to have to rise up, and proactively take steps to regain control of our country. We are going to have to choose this day, if we are going to stand up and defend our sovereignty, by whatever means, necessary, or are we gong to accept a New World Order, and become a Sharia compliant nation under Islamic rule. When you lay down on your bed tonight, patriots, make a decision, or it is going to be made for you.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    Apparently not, smart guy. Facts are facts. You are wrong. You are wrong because you get your information from people who are lying to you. It’s really that simple.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    Which part of the facts don’t you understand? I can use smaller words if it helps.

  • NoCoincidences

    The information was furnished by the American Community Survey, (subgroup of the Census), which utilizes, what they have named, “Synthetic Populations” in order to provide the false narrative numbers.. Precisely what 0bama’s methodology of numbers and fabricated statistics, like the ‘unemployment numbers’. That’s why the administration constantly has ‘revised job numbers’ every other week for each month..
    The lies some fools fall for almost amazes me, if it wasn’t for the fact that the executive hypocrite and his lackeys continually convince, persuade, and/or blind the followers of the darkness and deception… Grow up and invest in legitimate research on some of the non-issues they make into ‘pseudo-issues of importance’.. Pure idiots.
    Get Help…

    These people should sue the federal government ! What you call a lax policy Obama and George Soros calls a political agenda to destroy the Mexican border. Clinton’s chief lobby is the same person and she will continue the same political agenda until the economic war criminal has sucked every penny out of the U.S. market he can while he continues his attempt to destroy the greenback and U.S. sovereignty !

    Calling her a moron then?

    Great analysis. Thank you for contributing to the debate.

  • jenlr

    Because Crooks and Liars always tells the truth and make sure everything is not a hoax? LOL.

    Might as well call him a “moron”, since that’s all you’re capable of.

    Border security has never been tighter, or more expensive. Obama’s even put spy drones flying along the borders.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    The graph I showed you uses the same data collection techniques that have been in use for a long time. Same with the unemployment numbers. This is what right wing conspiracy nuts do. You don’t like the numbers? Call them into question even though you don’t have a leg to stand on. Pitiful. Accept reality or don’t. I really don’t care.

  • Richard Hellstrom

    I hope when you people speak of the Obama administration and the Democratic Party during the election that
    you use the term terrorist organization and criminal element for causing massive chaos , rape , murder , robbery , violence , drug sells and addiction in his acts of terrorism against the American people

  • jenlr

    “Conspiracy nuts” “loons”

    Did you know these words don’t help you get your point across? Ted Cruz would win against you in a heartbeat.

    Hell, Trump would win against you in a heartbeat
