    That “First DREAMer Deported” story turned out to be fake news

    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.

    The media will twist and lie to gain sympathy for illegals. They would call MS 16 young men, children but they were in their 20's and 30's.

    It's real in some manner. It was brought up to Sean Spicer today and he said he didn't want to comment on it and promised all the facts were not out yet.

    There shouldn't be any protected status. If you are in this country illegally, you leave. Then you apply to come back legally and you wait.

    I don't think the MSM has figured out how much they are hurting their own cause with these stories. They want ot say that good upstanding illegal aliens are being deported and have everyone get angry over it, but the liberals are already up in arms and the rest of the country wants this to happen. The problem is that illegal aliens that were thinking maybe everything would be ok as long as they just obeyed the laws are now scared because of all the fake news about the deportations

    Everyone of these types of fake news stories just cuts democratic voting base down that much more. The ones that are still around when it comes time to vote will not risk deportation or worse to illegally vote. I bet we see a decline in voter turn out in California next election by about 3 million votes, maybe more.

    So the guy was dreaming alright............

    Dreaming he had a right to sneak back into the country!
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    Think of this from the opposite point of view - dreaming that an illegal alien is gone, but waking up to find that they are still here!
