Mainstream Media Shows Support/Compassion for Illegal Aliens
Judicial Watch ^ | July 16, 2014

Posted on 07/16/2014 11:33:29 AM PDT by jazusamo

Predictably, the nation’s mainstream media has launched a sob campaign publishing stories and airing broadcasts illustrating the industry’s support and compassion for the barrage of illegal immigrant minors that have entered the U.S. recently.

Of particular note is a lengthy piece published this week in the capital-area’s mainstream newspaper, the Washington Post. It sympathetically tells the story of an illegal immigrant from Honduras who grew up dirt-poor (a child servant who sold tortillas on the streets) and has lived for a decade in the Washington D.C. area. The woman, Allis Godoy, abandoned her children in Honduras when she came to the U.S. and later paid human traffickers to smuggle them in—separately—through the Mexican border. The reporter concludes that Godoy was “desperate” because she spent thousands of dollars and risked her children’s lives so they could join her in Northwest Washington.

The article goes on to describe the “hazardous trip” that the teenage son made and the 10-year-old daughter’s two “failed smuggling attempts.” A few months ago, during the latest influx of illegal alien minors, the girl, described in the story as “pixie-like,” finally reunited with her mother. The girl was released after getting processed by U.S. immigration agents in Texas on April 14. American taxpayers flew her to Washington, where she was released to her undocumented mother who had not seen her since she was six months old.

The reporter writes that “it was the crowning achievement in Godoy’s life.” Then the 39-year-old illegal immigrant who abandoned her kids says this: “If people call this a crime, why is it a crime to want to give your children a better future? I have only one goal in life. To make sure my children never have to endure what I did as a child.” The article reveals that Godoy makes salads in a restaurant kitchen and lives in a tiny apartment in Columbia Heights. No fear in being identified in one of the nation’s largest newspapers—colorful pictures and all—since the Obama administration isn’t enforcing immigration laws or securing the border for that matter.

Though President Obama has promised that most of the tens of thousands of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) that have entered the U.S. recently will be deported, this illegal immigrant mother isn’t worried because she has firsthand knowledge that it’s not true. Her son, who has been in the U.S. since 2010, is in the final stages of obtaining a special humanitarian visa for undocumented youths, the story says, and Godoy seems confident her daughter will benefit from the same program. Additionally, several children of her relatives and friends are still in the U.S. years after arriving. To add a little color the reporter describes an encounter between Godoy and a friend returning from the grocery store. Godoy is driving her kids and honks and waves at the friend walking home. “Her two kids just arrived from Honduras,” Godoy says.

In the same week south Florida’s largest newspaper posted a touching video, titled“Children of the Americas,” to go with a brief story on the illegal immigrant crisis. The segment lasts around eight minutes and opens with gripping footage of young children covered by American Red Cross blankets sleeping side by side at a makeshift shelter. The writer/narrator, a Miami Herald reporter, says criminal enterprises are profiting from the desperation of those seeking a better life. Children are fleeing their homeland for many reasons, the narrator says, but an overwhelming number blame gangs that have spread over Central America, wreaking havoc and spreading blood across the region.

The journey is dangerous and a big percentage of the kids encounter violence along the way, the narrator says to footage of a young girl in a field, presumably making her way north. Girls get raped and a lot of children are held in captivity by drug cartels, the video reveals. Kids witness murders and other violent crimes on their journey to the U.S., walking, hoping and praying that this doesn’t happen to them. The dramatic broadcast clearly strives to stir sympathy and shows supporters holding signs that read: “No human is illegal.” A UAC who recently arrived in the U.S. says “we deserve to be here. Help us.” She says she came in search of a light and she has found it. The video ends with more footage of innocent-looking young children sleeping side by side under Red Cross blankets.

Across the nation, California’s largest newspaper published an editorial actually blaming the United States for the crime that’s driving illegal immigrants from Central America to come here. Drug traffickers have made the area among the world’s most violent, the editorial says, pointing out that the drugs are heading to the U.S. where marijuana and cocaine are most in demand. “Those who have spent time interviewing the unaccompanied minors showing up at the U.S. border report that the vast majority say they are fleeing violence and instability in their home countries.” It gets better. The piece actually blames U.S. deportations of foreign-born criminals for feeding the gangs that are prompting the flow of minors north.

Take the least risky and most cowardly position on any topic and you will find the media pushing it.

Interesting, huh?

The media seems to be referring to most illegals as “minors, babies, children, etc.,” for their spin. That is certainly the images they’re showing.

Yes, and not a word about gangbangers being among those “children.”

Why even post this? If Obama is for it, then we know the MSM is for it. They just can’t crawl far enough up his butt.

Members of the press can’t do math... almost to a reporter.

Here’s a video - BEST I’ve seen that explains the numbers being ‘immigration’...

How many of these networks own hispanic language broadcast channels as well?

Doesn’t NBC own Univision or Telemundo?

Why, yes, yes they do.

Idiot Compassion

"Idiot compassion" thinks it is being kind, but it's really being cruel. If you have an alcoholic friend and you know that one more drink might kill him, and yet he begs you for a drink, does real compassion say that you should give it to him? After all, to be kind you should give him what he wants, right? Giving him the drink would therefore show compassion, yes? No. Absolutely not.

"Real compassion includes wisdom and so it makes judgments of care and concern; it says some things are good, and some things are bad, and I will choose to act only on those things that are informed by wisdom and care."

But sorry, no sympathy for American taxpaying citizens who fund the mainstream media's "compassion", while they try to provide a better life for their own kids.

Why would anyone pay for the agenda-driven prattle they call news.

I ran out of compassion for illegal aliens 10 million illegal aliens ago.

Yes, they might understand it. Then they would summarily reject it because it doesn't fit their agenda. The Progressive Movement demands lockstep fealty to the cause.

Just goes to show the progressive media is just as power hungry as the progressive democrats and repubs running this country.

They are willing to sacrifice their fellow Americans liberties and freedoms, by allowing an illegal invading force, for the security of a powerful progressive government, run by them, while trampling on our Constitution. All in the name of power, that is the ends that justify the means for these sick, corrupt people.

The progressive media and their cohorts have no clue how they are the enemy within these days, with this and among other corruptions that go against our Constitution. I pray they eventually get the justice they deserve for such ignorance, much like the Nazi’s did at the end of the war.

Not trying to be a wet blanket. It really is a great demonstration of the reality immigration as a solution to poverty.

That pansy-ass treatment of criminals ain't working. A modest proposal.

For every child we take in we drop one bomb on criminal and corrupt ruling class targets in the child's home country. Yes alert LEO here in the States to prepare to meet and defeat the Hispanic gangs by any means necessary.

Special consideration for Mexicorruption. Arturo Sarukhan, a top official in Mexico[rruption]'s foreign ministry [among other Mexicorruption ruling class], said [vis-a-vis their anti-US tactics]:"How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time."

We squash the corrupt ruling class.

I’m sure they will carry the story of one of the thousands of children who came into the country in this latest invasion last month through Mcallen Texas who murdered a woman! Check it out on Drudge

According to a lot of Dead Greeks, in any argument there are only three avenues to go down: logos, ethos and pathos.
The only one available to the Demoblicans and their MSM allies is the pathetic route, because they aren’t making any sense, as usual, and we have good cause to distrust them.
All they want is amnesty and a New World Order. And FTS.

The compassionate thing to do for most of these illegal aliens will be to return them to their homes in Central America.

The progressive media have no clue that they will be exposed to TB and the crime the illegals are bringing with them. All in the name of power. Wonder how much they will howl when one of them is murdered by their favorite people?
Wonder how much they will howl when one of them turns up with a viral disease that cannot be treated?

Stupid is as stupid does.

Exactly!

We need to bring back the committees on unAmerican and/or unConstitutional activities and start trying many of these traitors in the media and government.

The exact same number that are bunking in at Michael Moore's mansion. AND Bill and Hillary's mansion... That number would be ZERO. ZIP. NADA.
