The media was raring to go when they learned that a young Muslim girl, Nabra Hassanen, was bludgeoned to death with a baseball bat last week in Sterling, Virginia. The major newspapers and telecasts could barely hold back their glee as they reported on the murder. They were so sure they could pin this one on Islamophobia.
There it was, a gruesome story: The very thing they had been warning us about. The “alt-right” in America – inspired and impassioned by the election of Donald Trump – had finally claimed a Muslim victim. All of a sudden, no one wanted to talk about poor Nabra anymore.
It wasn’t that the Washington Post, NPR. MSNBC, and the liberal media decided to stop exploiting the girl’s death. They would gladly have continued to exploit her murder if it meant attacking President Trump and his supporters. What happened was they discovered the murder was not a “hate crime,” she was actually killed by an illegal immigrant from El Salvador.
The fact was, it was an illegal immigrant by the name of Darwin Martinez Torres. A 22-year-old with a detainer request against him, the media instantly discovered the narrative wasn’t the one they wanted to further. So they stopped talking about it.
Crimes committed by illegal immigrants have been pretty much ignored in recent years as the Democrats hope the future of the democratic party is putting their faith in illegals, as the future of liberal America. Anything that contradicts the narrative that illegal immigrants enrich this country is not welcome on the air or in news print.
All arguments to the contrary no matter how true are deemed racist. Even the term illegal as a descriptor is deemed white supremacist.
We cannot be silenced by the media. The Trump administration has made it a priority to give a voice to those victims who have been ignored. It’s time for the average American to wake up to the reality that is illegal immigration and all of the harms it brings upon the country.
The mainstream media and the Democrats have worked hard to hide the truth. But facts and statistics are on our side. We need to secure our borders and we need to send people like Martinez Torres back where they came. Innocent people are at risk. Does this mean there are only evil criminals who mean us harm coming across the border? No. There are good people, who want to make a new life for their families coming across the border, but since I don’t know how to judge the good from evil the wise thing to do is follow the law. That is precisely why we have laws in place.
It is also a fact, the mere crossing of the border illegally makes everyone crossing the border a criminal.
