Tyche Hendricks' pro-illegal immigration propaganda

San Francisco Chronicle reporter Tyche Hendricks offers a pro-illegal immigration puff piece in the article "Stakes High for Families". As you can see by looking at the other articles in that category, all these propaganda pieces start the same way. In the current instance:
When Anna Salazar was first dating her husband, Roberto, it didn't occur to her to ask his immigration status.
In this particular case, the intro is followed with a series of misleading statements:
Sensenbrenner's bill [HR4437] would build 700 miles of fencing along the border and have Anna Salazar, too, charged with an aggravated felony -- "harboring" her undocumented husband. She could face more than a year in prison, loss of her children to foster care during that time and forfeiture of her assets.
It sounds so ominous, doesn't it? Almost as if that evil Sensenbrenner person would come to their home and personally arrest her.

Of course, what Hendricks doesn't reveal is that there are already laws against harboring illegal aliens, and Salazar probably stands even less of a chance from being charged with anything should HR4437 pass than she has during all the decades when the current laws have been on the books.

As with other PIIPPs, suddenly a bright light shines forth, showing the way to true redemption:
By contrast, a bill pending in the Senate would create a path to legal residency for most of the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States
And, it would also lead to many more similar cases, as millions upon millions of new illegal aliens came here to take advantage of their amnesty.

Unlike many other PIIPPs, this article does include the name of the person who might just have brought this case to the attention of the reporter:
"Roberto's case is an example of how some people luck in and some people luck out," said his pro bono attorney, Anita Sinha of the International Institute of the East Bay. "A lot of it has to do with arbitrary deadlines."
A google search of her name is like entering into a carnival maze of acronyms. She's identified here as a member of the National Immigration Law Center (NILC, site). Since that time she's joined the International Institute of the East Bay (IIEB,site). On this 2003 page she's identified as represented the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NIRP, site). And, in 2005 she was a candidate for the board of the SF chapter of the National Lawyers Guild (NLG).

In other words, she's pretty darn far-left.

And, even if this article has let slip where it came from, that still doesn't explain why all these PIIPPs look the same. Is there some kind of a Word template installed by default on reporters' computers?

Thanks for exposing another cog in the wheel of the SF Chronicle's pro-illegal alien propaganda machine!

Another name you constantly see on the by-lines of the Chronicle's frequent "only open borders will save us" pieces is some chick named Carolyn Lockhead. Lockhead works in the Washington bureau and, as far as I can tell, wrote mostly business pieces until taking up the illegal alien torch 2 years ago.

Tyche and Carolyn represent the unholy alliance between the invaders, the ethically castrated (sorry... politically correct) pseudo-leftists, and the business interests so willing to bring back slavery.

"Anita Sinha"

In your last link about her you can read how she makes a big deal about her "South Asian" heritage; presumably she's Indian, although it says there that she's "a native New Yorker". Even if she was born in the US, it's a pretty good bet that her parents came to the US as immigrants. Since there must be a reason they came here rather than going to Mexico, it might be interesting to ask her why she is working so hard to make sure the US has more Mexicans.
