Sure seemed real to me. But then that’s the whole idea of fake news, isn’t it?
Here’s just how far the USA Today version veered off from reality.
USA Today: Apprehended while he was waiting for a car ride to pick him up.
Reality: Apprehended by Calexico Station Border Patrol minutes after illegally entering the U.S. by climbing over the border fence.
USA Today: Left his wallet in car so didn’t have proof of his DACA status on him.
Reality: DACA status expired in Aug. 2015 and he was notified at that time. (See Update Below)
USA Today: Said, “I thought that if I kept my nose clean nothing would happen.”
Reality: Has a conviction for theft for which he received probation.
USA Today: Montes was confused when he was approached by the federal officer in February.
Reality: “Admitted under oath during the arrest interview that he had entered illegally.”
As of mid-morning when I last checked, the USA Today story still didn’t have any edits or corrections included.
