Media Hides Influence of Donors, Business Lobbyists in Immigration Debate


The GOP establishment has used progressives’ obsession over child detentions to divert media attention from the economic details of the unpopular amnesty bill which will transfer wealth from ordinary Americans to investors, critics say.

Journalists “are just completely blinded,” said Rosemary Jenks, policy director at NumbersUSA. “You could show them a [money] trail and they would not follow it because they are so intent on their own narratives.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan and other GOP leaders are “offering a [child-separation] fix and saying take the amnesty with it,” said Jessica Vaughan, a director at the Center for Immigration Studies. 
“The reporters’ own zeal for amnesty fulfills their social-justice fantasies ….  [and they are] completely overlooking the impact of the Ryan bill on the college-educated,” she said, adding that “it could be their kids that will be impacted.”
GOP legislators recognize the child-distraction strategy, reported
Rep. Thomas Massie said GOP leaders were using the political pressure on the family separation issue to induce members to vote for the bill.
“It’s not the reason to vote for this, but they definitely put it forward as a reason to vote for this,” the Kentucky Republican said, describing leadership’s message as, “Hey, this solves your political problem as well.”
“Can’t you just solve that problem with a very limited, focused stand-alone bill?” Massie asked. “Probably so, and one that would pass the Senate.”
Ryan was able to deploy the strategy partly because reporters showed no interest during his weekly press conferences about the economic impacts of his legislation. The reported Ryan’s June 20 argument:
“The administration says it wants Congress to act, and we are. Tomorrow, the House will vote on legislation to keep families together,” [House Speaker Paul Ryan] said during a press conference.
“Under this bill, when people are being prosecuted for illegally crossing the border families will remain together under [Department of Homeland Security] custody throughout the length of their legal proceedings,” referring to a compromise GOP bill.
Many reporters have Tweeted about the child-detention dispute while also ignoring the scale and impact of GOP donors’ push for cheap imported labor and amnesty, or the bill’s potential for transferring more wages from young workers to wealthy older investors. In contrast, reporters were eager to cover the economic impact of the GOP’s tax bill. 

US Chamber and Business Roundtable come out against family separation. "There is no other way to say it, this is not who we are and it must end now,” writes Chamber’s Donohue.

Like many other media outlets, the Washington Post has barely mentioned the economic details of the two immigration bills, instead focusing on the child-separation issue and the legislative process.
In one of many articles about the family issue in the Washingon Post, the reporters admitted that  “the immigration debate has now become consumed by the consequences of the Trump administration’s border policy.” 
The same article spent 17 paragraphs before it described the two competing amnesty bills very briefly — even though the article was about the President’s support for the bills:
In the House, there are two rival bills. One is a compromise measure that would provide $25 billion for Trump’s long-sought border wall, offer a pathway to citizenship to young undocumented immigrants and keep migrant families together.
A competing, hard-line bill by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) would not guarantee “dreamers” a path to permanent legal residency and includes controversial enforcement measures such as the mandatory use of a worker verification program.
Reporters are focussing on the children, not the money, because that is what Democrats and donors want them to focus on, said Jenks. She added:
The Democratic political estalishment is intent on open-borders to grow their majority and essentially replace Americans. My guess, more than anything, is that reporters are following blindly that narrative. If the Democrats say jump, they say ‘How high?’ Here the Democrats have said ‘Amnesty good, open-borders good, separating families – Oh horrors!’ and reporters are following that because they are beyond the point where they can look at what the [draft] law says and look at what the choices are.
Worse, the media has internalized those attitudes, Jenks said. Immigration politics have:
become a kind of ‘Social Justice Warrior’ thing for the media. It is virtue signaling. They’re elites so they don’t have the same experience with immigration as Americans do, they don’t have to compete with them for jobs and I think they see this as a way they can stand up for the [foreign] poor and downtrodden against those deplorable Americans.
This skewed perspective ensures the media has failed to notice how Ryan’s bill shifts the target of immigration from blue-collar paychecks up to white-collar salaries, to track the impact of donors on the discharge-petition push, to recognize Ryan’s support for cheap labor, to recognize why Democrats oppose it and failed to understand why big business has rejected the amnesty bill as insufficient.
Establishment journalists cannot freely pick and choose their topics and angles without the risk of losing their jobs, income, and status, Jenks said:
The establishment media has become a cult where you are not allowed to go outside a narrative, which means you are not allowed to follow the money, to get to the truth of the facts. They would face becoming outcasts if they did that … they would be ostracized.
It is really amazing because a lot of the money [redirected by immigration policy] goes to the cheap=labor lobby which the Democrats purport to hate, and the media also pretends to hate. But they are really all part of the Democrats’ globalized establishment.
Establishment journalists cannot imagine life outside the establishment, said Vaughan. The nation’s immigration policy is backed by “big business, big tech, big ag[riculture], big religion, big labor … [and] big media is a willing partner,” she said. 
Migration Economics
Currently, four million Americans turn 18 each year and begin looking for good jobs in the free market — but the government provides green cards to roughly 1 million legal immigrants and temporary work-permits to roughly 3 million foreign workers.
The Washington-imposed economic policy of economic growth via mass-immigration shifts wealth from young people towards older people by flooding the market with foreign labor. That process spikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. The policy also drives up real estate priceswidens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.

Sen. Dick Durbin tells GOP legislators to "Be Unafraid of Breitbart." Of course there's no reason to be afraid. But it is useful for legislators to recognize it is difficult to mislead the voters who track immigration politics & economics via Breitbart. 


Hispanic, black and white children torn away from American families.

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism.
In 2008, Colorado separated a Jewish boy from his parents.
Marten Kudlis was separated from his parents while waiting for his mother to bring him his ice cream. The 3-year-old boy who had just been playing in the park never got his ice cream. 
Instead Francis Hernandez, an illegal alien driving 81 miles an hour, slammed into a pickup truck, killing the two women inside, and smashing it through the glass wall of the Baskin Robbins. 
Blood and broken glass covered the floor. Little Marten, who had just learned to ride a bike, died of a slashed jugular vein and was buried with a teddy bear.
Francis Hernandez had been arrested 16 times in 5 years without ever being turned over to immigration authorities. That failure to enforce immigration law separated a little boy from his family forever. 
Advocates for illegal migration claim to be outraged by family separation. They want illegal alien invaders like Francis to go on separating American children from their families. What the fake news media falsely calls family separation is just arresting illegal aliens like Francis instead of releasing them. When previous administrations failed to enforce border security, they separated American children like Marten and many others from their parents forever. And the blood of those children is on the hands of the posturing politicians, activists and pundits who want to unite illegal aliens and separate Americans.
In February 2018, the United States government separated Grace Aguilar from her parents. 
Grace was a bright and cheerful 6-year-old girl. While she was sitting by her favorite tree in the front yard of her family home, Maximino Delgado Lagunas, a Mexican illegal alien who had already been deported twice, ran her down.
The illegal alien's blood alcohol limit was three times the legal limit. He had been arrested before for a DUI, but was put back on the street by local cops instead of being turned over to immigration authorities.
Sanctuary city policies separated Grace, whose parents had tried to have children for 8 years, from her parents. The illegal alien who killed her had been deported twice, once under Bush and once under Obama. The combination of lax border security by these two administrations and local sanctuary policies permanently separated the little girl and her parents. Unlike the illegal migrants whose plight is playing out on every cable news channel, the Aguilar family will never get their daughter back.
16-year-old Kayla Cuevas and 15-year-old Nisa Mickens were separated from their parents when they were battered with baseball bats and butchered with a machete in a suburban cul-de-sac by illegal alien MS-13 members. 
The brutal illegal alien assault left the bodies of the African-American teenage girls, who had been out celebrating Nisa's birthday, barely recognizable. 
“There are days where you feel like you want your world to end, just like your child’s,” Kayla's mother said. “Then you realize you have a new purpose: to fight, so that your child’s death is not in vain.”
10-year-old Alena Clay was separated from her family while walking down a bike lane with her 16-year-old sister and two other girls. Juan Carlos Ortega-Santos, an illegal alien, had no driver's license, no insurance and his blood alcohol level was far over the limit. 16-year-old Tyeisha Lacy, Alena's sister, pushed an 8-year-old girl out of Juan's way. But Juan slammed into the two Lacy girls killing them both.
"He will never know the extent of the damage he did," Lakeenya Lacy, Tyeisha's mother, said in court. "You did not just take their lives. You took other people's lives with them."
4-year-old Ellie Bryant and 22-month-old Grayson Hacking were separated forever from their mother when Margarito Quintero Rosales slammed head on into their car. Ellie, Grayson and Courtney Hacking's husband, Peter, were all killed.
Rosales had been previously deported and had no license. He was sentenced to two years in prison.
15-year-old Genesis Cornejo-Alvarado was separated from her parents when two illegal alien MS-13 gang members killed her in a satanic ritual after previously raping her and a 14-year-old girl. 
11-year-old Abigail Robinson and 6-year-old Anna Dieter-Eckerdt were separated from their parents while playing in a pile of leaves. Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros, who ran them over, was an illegal alien and one of Obama's DREAMERs. Despite killing the two girls, she was released from jail and allowed to apply for a Social Security number and a work permit. And that is exactly what illegal alien advocates want.
When illegal aliens separate a child from her parents, no power on earth can undo that separation. 
The sheriff's department and volunteers searched hundreds of acres for 14-month-old Owen Hidalgo-Calderon. The body of his mother, 18-year-old Selena Hidalgo-Calderon, had already been found. 
Evarardo Donoteo-Reyes, a Mexican illegal alien who had already been deported twice, and convicted once of illegal entry, was charged with moving her body.
10-year-old Kayla Gomez-Orozco went missing after church. Her body was later found in a well. The accused murderer was Gustavo Zavala-Garcia, her previously deported illegal alien uncle, who allegedly sexually assaulted her, beat her with a blunt object, choked her and then drowned her in the well.
But sometimes illegal aliens don’t even bother separating parents and children. Marco Tulio Hernandez Ramirez was driving his employer’s van when he slammed into the Cannon family's Toyota Camry.
His blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit, he didn’t have a license and was driving on the wrong side of the roadway. But the illegal alien survived to become a 40-year burden on taxpayers.  5-year-old Rose Marie Cannon didn't. Neither did Katherine Cannon and Russell Cannon.
Rose Marie had been given a dollar to spend as the family headed out to do their Christmas shopping.
“And she died with that dollar in her hand," Louise Cannon, Russell's mother, said. "That's the most heartbreaking thing."
"He gave them the death sentence," she said of Ramirez.
But it wasn’t only Ramirez who did that. Ramirez had been deported before, but there he was back again. The failure to enforce immigration laws separated Rose Marie forever from her family. 
America is full of angel dad and moms whose children were separated from them by illegal aliens.
Ray Tranchant was separated forever from his 16-year-old daughter Tessa, when Alfredo Ramos, a drunk illegal alien, slammed into the back of their car. 
"My idea of heaven", Tessa had written in her journal, "is a nonstop vacation on a tropical island … all the people I love would be there with me."
Ray Tranchant has been fighting to prevent other American families from being separated from their child. 
And he’s not alone.
The victims are all around us. These are only a handful of their stories. They are members of every race and religion. Some were born in this country and others came here as legal immigrants. 
We have a choice to make.
Either we can detain illegal migrants crossing the border or we can let them all in. We can take the Merkel way out and hope that the family that pays the price for illegal migration isn’t our own.
There are no apologies or excuses necessary for detaining illegal aliens who illegally cross the border. Even if we set aside minor matters like national sovereignty and the rule of law, the stories of these murdered children provide ample justification for arresting every single illegal migrant. 
Either we separate illegal migrants from this country. Or they will go on brutally tearing families apart. And if we allow them to use children as human shields, then American children will pay the price.
President Trump has called the media the “enemy of the American people.” It’s not just the enemy. Its manicured hands are covered in the blood of American men, women and children. The media advocates for drug dealers, for Islamic terrorists and for illegal aliens. The more Americans they kill, the more the media cheers them on. The media’s lies aren’t just tearing apart the country, they’re killing children.

GRAPHIC: 9 Women Murdered in 2 Weeks by Cartel Gunmen in Mexican Border State

Fuerza Tamaulipas
Tamaulipas Government

CIUDAD VICTORIA, Tamaulipas — The cartel violence taking place in the central part of this border state continues after the executions of nine women in a two-week time span. The victims were killed by different means and apparent motivations.

Some of the female victims were kidnapped, tortured and executed; one of them was pregnant at the time of her death. Some victims were incinerated while others have simply disappeared without a trace.
Last month, Breitbart Texas reported on a chilling execution of multiple women in Ciudad Victoria, capital of this border state. In a ravine about 80 meters deep between large rocks, authorities found the bodies of six women–one was pregnant. All of the victims were tortured before being shot in the head and dumped into the ravine.
The six women worked at a roadside restaurant where they tended to truck drivers and passing motorists. The victims were found near the kilometer 10 marker on the highway to Rumbo Nuevo. Authorities later revealed a team of gunmen pulled up to the restaurant, tortured them, and eventually shot them in the head. The case continues to be listed under investigation without a motive or suspected organization. 
The second case took place on June 8, in the municipality of Padilla. There, locals reported the execution of two women whose remains were found inside a Toyota minivan set on fire. Tamaulipas authorities were only able to recover two skulls and bone fragments. 
The two victims were identified as Marisela Perez Rodriguez and Fernanda Salinas Perez; allegedly part of a drug cartel in Tamaulipas. The women were kidnapped by a rival one week before prior.
The ninth victim was discovered last week in Ciudad Victoria when cartel gunmen left the body of a young woman inside a 2011 Chevrolet compact. The car was parked in a busy area, not far from the city’s downtown. The victim was shot at least twice with a .45 caliber handgun. Her identity remains unknown. 
Cartel executions in the central part of Tamaulipas continue to escalate as rival factions of Los Zetas fight for territorial control. 
Editor’s Note: Breitbart Texas traveled to the Mexican States of Tamaulipas, Coahuila, and Nuevo León to recruit citizen journalists willing to risk their lives and expose the cartels silencing their communities.  The writers would face certain death at the hands of the various cartels that operate in those areas including the Gulf Cartel and Los Zetas if a pseudonym were not used. Breitbart Texas’ Cartel Chronicles are published in both English and in their original Spanish. This article was written by “Francisco Morales” from Tamaulipas.
