Earlier this week, USA Today ran a story about Trump deporting the first DREAMer who was caught while sitting in the car with his girlfriend.
The media freaked out about what a cold monster Trump was and many sites ran with the story.
The problem is. USA Today was wrong. That’s not what happened.
From The Daily Caller:
USA Today reported Tuesday that an illegal immigrant protected by Barack Obama’s amnesty was deported in February after spending an evening with his girlfriend. However, a Department of Homeland Security spokesman told The Daily Caller that this story is false because Juan Manuel Montes Bojorquez did not receive amnesty and was caught climbing over a border fence when he was detained.
Wow. More fake news from the MSM.
They had a great summary of what went down over at Hot Air.
From Hot Air:
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.
Well that’s weird!
I can’t believe the mainstream media would lie about something like that!
You can’t believe everything you read.
Especially from a place like USA Today…
