In the San Jose Mercury News‘ relentless desire to destroy President Trump, they’ve decided to throw one immigrant family to the wolves.
Immigrants across the Bay Area and around the country, their fates lie in the hands of a contorted Congress and a mercurial president who can’t come to terms over immigration legislation.
President Trump’s latest proposal would create a path to citizenship for 1.8 million young undocumented immigrants, known as “Dreamers,” who were brought to the country illegally as children. That’s nearly double the number who were protected under the Obama administration, but Trump’s plan would strictly limit families from bringing relatives — other than spouses or children — to the U.S. and end the visa lottery system. It also would beef up immigration enforcement and set aside $25 billion for a border wall.
Trump’s proposal would protect Ernesto Perez’s two children who are “Dreamers” — Angela, a senior at Cal State Long Beach, and Max, a security guard at Walmart — and likely the youngest of the family, Cristina, a Silver Creek High School junior who has yet to apply. But it won’t help their father in San Jose or their mother, who doesn’t live with the family.
So knowing ICE was targeting California because of the state’s sanctuary laws, the Mercury News decided to put the Perez family right there in the paper….making it easy for ICE to come and get them.
What compassion. What journalism. Enjoy your Police State.
