Pro Illegal Alien Propaganda

Propaganda masquerading as news in the Chicago Tribune

Hugh Dellios' article Families split by U.S. law seek aid is not a news item - its propaganda on behalf of illegal alliens. Romina Perea and her family are in a situation entirely of her own making. If she'd complied with US immigration law and waited her turn, as millions of other would be immigrants have done, her family wouldn't be in this position. (Ditto for Disifredo Del Valle and his family too.) It goes without saying her husband could join her in Mexico any time he so chooses. But because she can't get exactally what she wants due to her disregard for the law, she tries to elicit public sympathy by whining about it in the media. Left unaddressed is why she feels entitled to special treatment.

I'm not unsympathetic to the plight of families like these. But Carl Rusnok, a spokesman for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, gets it right:
The government is "trying to restore integrity to the immigration system. You do that by enforcing the rules," Rusnok said. "Do people say the government is breaking up the family when someone robs a bank" and goes to prison?
Bye the way, does the Chicago Tribune take the position that the law is breaking up families when criminals are incarcerated?
