The predominantly liberal mainstream media has a narrative to run: the border is fine, there is no crisis, any inkling of a crisis is fabricated by the right, and there are no real victims of border violence.
That’s what people will hear when they turn on networks like CNN or MSNBC (or follow CNN host Jim Acosta).
That message could not be further from the truth as there is an immigration crisis and real Americans are dying as a result of illegal immigration.
Those relatives who lost loved ones from border violence or because of illegal immigration were dubbed “Angel” family members by President Trump.
And, as Breitbart News reports, the mainstream media networks of CNN and MSNBC have kept these “Angel” parents off of their programs.
From the report:
Since January 1, neither CNN nor MSNBC has booked a single “Angel Mom” — mothers of children brutally murdered by illegal aliens — as guests on their networks, per an analysis conducted by the Republican National Committee (RNC).
The RNC told Breitbart News it has tracked both networks since the beginning of the year as they intensely bash President Donald Trump over the government shutdown that is now the longest ever in the history of the United States. Since the turn of the year to 2019 from 2018, neither network has conducted a single interview with any family members of victims of illegal alien crimes.
The Angel Moms, or Angel Families, are the surviving family members of those Americans who were tragically killed by illegal aliens. Their plight is a particularly vivid illustration of the effects of unfettered illegal immigration. Had the federal government enforced immigration law and removed the illegal aliens who committed these heinous crimes before they committed them, the crimes never would have happened and their loved ones would presumably still be alive today.
As Breitbart reports, President Trump regularly mentions that real Americans are being affected by border violence and illegal immigration.
In his presidential address to the nation last week, Trump mentioned that “thousands of Americans have been brutally killed” by illegal immigrants.
“In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records, including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent killings,” Trump said in his televised speech from the Oval Office. “Over the years, thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country, and thousands of more lives will be lost if we don’t act right now.”
Democratic congressional leaders, however, failed to mention these deaths in their rebuttal.
“In their responses, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer did not mention the American citizens who are victims of illegal alien crimes,” Breitbart reports. “And Democrats generally have avoided the issue entirely, and the media help them by not covering it or interviewing the parents of loved ones killed by illegal aliens.”
