The law breakers are being rounded up and sent home… and MSM coverage reads like a sob story.
The 21 Smithfield Packing Co. employees arrested by immigration officials while they worked Wednesday are in the process of being deported.
The 20 men and one woman arrested were moved Thursday from the Mecklenburg County Jail to Stewart Detention Center in Lumpkin, Ga., nearly 700 miles from Tar Heel.
Meanwhile, church officials within the region’s Hispanic community and spokespeople with the United Food & Commercial Workers union said the workers’ families didn’t know where they were and other immigrant workers were terrified of more arrests.
…and the headline for this ridiculous article?
The ironic thing about it is that if they’d really stayed home… I mean their real home, they wouldn’t have to fear arrest for breaking the law now. This would be like a story sympathetically covering a group of bank robbers who are afraid to rob more banks after one of their own had been caught in the act. Forgive me for failing to care.
Of course, it’s not enough to just have one ridiculous article circulating in the liberal land of MSM, they’re popping up all over the country. Another headline reads:
Federal agents from seven teams also fanned out in local communities, where they nabbed 338 undocumented immigrants, more than 150 of whom were classed as “immigration fugitives” — foreign nationals who ignored final deportation orders.
“We hadn’t seen anything like this here before, and it came as a shock,” said Antonio Bernabe, a community worker who runs a day labor program at the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles.
First, we can dispense with the political correctness and call the criminals what they are: illegal aliens
Second, “this came as a shock”? Are you retarded? That’s like being surprised the sun rose this morning. I think the real surprise is that it’s taken so long for law enforcement officials to crack down on these law breakers.
At least someone’s gettin’ it:
“We used to feel secure here,” Nicaraguan electrician Manuel Salomon told Reuters as he sipped coffee in a Mexican bakery in the city. “But it looks like that honeymoon is over.”
Let’s hope so.
