President Trump told a gathering of news media yesterday, namely the Mainstream Media that is not accustomed to having its status questioned, that they were constantly perpetrating fakes news to create an intended reaction from the American people.
ICE, the nation’s largest immigration enforcement agency, just did the very same thing, calling out the media for its fabricated/highly slanted coverage of recent immigration raids and reminding everyone that under previous administration these raids were far more numerous – and the media then said NOTHING.
These reports create mass panic and put communities and law enforcement personnel in unnecessary danger.

What the media is doing in creating a false narrative of sweeping Trump-initiated immigration raids is creating hysteria – hysteria which in turn puts law enforcement at further risk. The media doesn’t care about that, though. The safety of law enforcement has always been a low priority for them when it comes to the work of highly biased media spin as was so clearly outlined by this Washington Examiner report:
“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is pushing back hard on media reports that President Trump has unleashed a mean-spirited national raid on immigrants, noting that it rounded up over 350 percent more during one sweep under former President Obama.
In a series of tweets, ICE called the reports, in the Washington Post and elsewhere, “dangerous and irresponsible.”
The agency this week said that had made 683 arrests of mostly criminal illegal immigrants, or those with multiple cases against them beyond illegally crossing the border.
To make its point, ICE tweeted out a “Throwback Thursday” story from 2012 during which 3,168 illegals were rounded up in a sweep that drew little media complaints and coverage.”
ICE is going about its normal course of business, but the media, because it is now a Trump administration, is portraying normal as something radical and abusive. It is a portrayal that has been forwarded by all the major news networks and publications and is merely another part of the media’s intention to delegitimatize the Trump presidency. Every Trump-related story that comes from the Mainstream Media is colored by its inherent anti-Trump bias.
Every. Single. One.
