This is a great example of liberal media bias. The headlines below from Time Magazine, the L.A. Times and the Washington Post are not unusual, similar headlines are throughout the mainstream media, scaring all immigrants as the Time headline, or conjuring up images of roving deportation squads in the next two:
- Donald Trump Plans to Deport Up to 3 Million Immigrants
- Trump says US will try to deport 3 million undocumented immigrants
- Donald Trump plans to immediately deport 2 million to 3 million undocumented immigrants
Talk about media bias. This is who president-elect trump plans to deport according to Time Magazine:
“What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, we have a lot of these people—probably two million, it could be even three million—we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate,” Trump said in an interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes. “But we’re getting them out of our country. They’re here illegally.”
Oh, he’s getting rid of the criminals, gang members, and drug dealers. In other words…just the law-breakers. You know, the ones Barack Obama promised us he was getting rid of but never did.
According to the Washington Post, Trump goes on to say after he gets the criminals out, he will work on securing the border, then worry about the rest of the
Illegal Aliens I mean Criminally Trespassing Aliens. He isn’t going to immediately kick out all criminally trespassing aliens…just the criminals.
Trump told her that after securing the border, his administration would make a “determination” on the remaining undocumented immigrants in the country.
“After the border is secure and after everything gets normalized, we’re going to make a determination on the people that they’re talking about — who are terrific people. They’re terrific people, but we are gonna make a determination at that,” Trump said. “But before we make that determination . . . it’s very important, we are going to secure our border.”
Most of the biased articles even buried the lede like this from NY Magazine;
President-elect Donald Trump has confirmed that his administration will work to immediately deport or incarcerate as many as two to three million undocumented immigrants once he takes office.
It would have a bit more accurate if the lede was:
President-elect Donald Trump has confirmed that his administration will work to immediately deport or incarcerate as many as two to three million criminal, gang members, and/or drug dealing criminally trespassing aliens once he takes office.
This is how the mainstream media disparaged Donald Trump throughout the campaign and how they will continue to lie about him now that he will be president.
