AP: Obama to deport fewer illegal aliens this fiscal year than since 2007 - 09/12/14

Alicia Caldwell of the Associated Press writes "US sharply cutting deportations" [1]: President Barack Obama is on pace this year to deport the fewest number of immigrants since at least 2007, even as he has postponed until after Election Day his promised unilateral action that could shield millions more from deportation. According to an analysis of Homeland Security Department figures by The...

... create. From Alicia Caldwell of the Associated Press ( peekURL.com/zyRMYS8 , bolding added): Border Patrol agents could arrest as many as 90,000 children trying to illegally cross the Mexican border alone this year, more than three times the number of children apprehended in 2013, according to a draft internal Homeland Security memorandum reviewed by The Associated Press. In the May 30 memo from...

Amnesty fans cheer GOP, Teaparty mostly ignoring immigration to oppose Obamacare (NumbersUSA, Tea Party "Patriots") - 08/20/13

... bit late, Erica Werner of the Associated Press offers the "Big Story" entitled "Voices opposing immigration law muted this August" ( peekURL.com/zc6sAy6 ): It was the kickoff of a "Stop Amnesty Tour" organized by the Tea Party Patriots and other groups. But the crowd was so sparse that immigrant advocates were soon gleefully circulating photos of the featured speaker, Republican Rep. Steve King...

John Flesher of AP rehashes decades-old article to help growers get cheap labor (Michigan, Pat McGuire, rotting crops) - 07/08/13

John Flesher of the Associated Press offers "Farmers worry about fate of immigration bills" [1], a rehash of the same, decades-old article that dozens of news sources have used to get growers cheap, exploitable farm labor. Only the names, locations, and crops have changed this time around: For northern Michigan fruit grower Pat McGuire, the most potent symbol of the immigration debate isn't...

Jay Reeves of AP helps chicken processors with their illegal labor needs (Alabama, twister, immigration) - 05/28/13

If Jay Reeves of the Associated Press isn't getting paid off by chicken processors like Tyson Foods and Pilgrims Pride, he should be. Reeves offers "Twister Heals Ala. Town Fractured Over Immigration" [1]. The article seems to have two purposes: 1. Help crooked businesses in Alabama maintain a cheap (to them) workforce that includes large numbers of illegal aliens. 2. Attempt to downplay the many...

Tom Beaumont and Josh Lederman of AP mislead about immigration, avoid real reporting - 12/26/12

... Beaumont and Josh Lederman of the Associated Press offer "GOP shows signs of bending after election defeat" ([1]). I'll discuss why it's wrong after the excerpt: For years, Republicans have adhered fiercely to their bedrock conservative principles, resisting Democratic calls for tax hikes, comprehensive immigration reform and gun control. Now, seven weeks after an electoral drubbing, some party...

After Sandy, Mexican government helps illegal aliens get U.S. benefits (food stamps, FEMA) - 11/26/12

Claudia Torrens of the Associated Press offers "Immigrants struggle to cope in Sandy's aftermath" ( peekURL.com/zENYejG ). It starts with an acknowledgment that the "immigrants" in the title are in fact actually illegal aliens [1], then - merely as an aside - mentions this: Officials from the Mexican government have visited shelters in New York and New Jersey looking for immigrants to help,...

Horrors: Arizona immigration law costs $640,000 (but saves many millions) (Jacques Billeaud, AP, Paul Davenport) - 10/28/12

... more ludicrous attempts by the Associated Press to enable illegal immigration is the article "Ariz. spends $640,000 on immigration training" by Jacques Billeaud ([1]). Even Homer Simpson wouldn't fall for it: Police agencies in Arizona have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars training officers to enforce the state's 2010 immigration law, despite claims from supporters that it wasn't going to...

The corporate profiteering Laura Wides-Munoz and Garance Burke won't tell you about (AP, immigration, private prisons) - 08/02/12

... Munoz and Garance Burke of the Associated Press offer "Immigrants prove big business for prison companies" (link). It's similar to several other stories printed by both the establishment media and by those on the left, and like those it's very ironic and it also might be very misleading for many people. Here are the first two paragraphs: The U.S. is locking up more illegal immigrants than ever,...

AP admits: Hispanic vote isn't monolithic, isn't really a voting bloc - 07/02/12

... support them, en masse. Now, the Associated Press is admitting something others have known for a long time: the concerns of Hispanics in general are not fully in sync with the concerns of Hispanic leaders. From "No one-size-fits-all approach to wooing Hispanics" [1]: The reasons that Hispanics give for choosing between Obama and Romney are just as diverse as the countries that they or their...

Presente's racial campaign against Marco Rubio (No Somos Rubios) - 01/27/12

... here's a real story from the Associated Press that we don't have to imagine (link). As you can see, the AP isn't treating this the same way they would the thought experiments above, and don't expect the rest of the political and media class to bat an eye either: The nonprofit group Presente is leading the "No Somos Rubios" (We are not Rubios) campaign. It plans to protest and fly an airplane...

Dozens of pro-illegal immigration groups were invited to Obama's mini-amnesty rollout and you weren't - 08/25/11

... spoke with Alicia Caldwell of the Associated Press to share the news with a sympathetic ear (her writeup is here). Then, there were "staff level calls to dream letter signatories"; that refers to the April letter (link) that various Congressmen sent to Napolitano urging her to leave DREAM Act students alone. Those signatories are: Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, Pat Leahy, Carl Levin, Daniel Akaka,...

Kate Brumback doesn't reveal Georgia immigration boycott organizer is former Mexican consul general (Associated Press, HB87) - 07/01/11

... so, then Kate Brumback of the Associated Press is not on your side. Her report on the boycott [1] and an earlier report from her [2] failed to note Maus' former job. If you think Kate Brumback should have revealed that a group organizing a boycott of a U.S. state is headed by a former consul general of Mexico, then contact her via Twitter with your thoughts: @KateBrumback. If anyone has contact...

Far-left Robert Erickson dumps glitter on Newt Gingrich; teaparty, ALIPAC partly to blame (Nick Espinosa) - 05/18/11

... Gingrich as a protest. Video below; Associated Press story here; event location: Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is obviously despicable behavior that's just one small step up from what the far-left usually engages in: pie throwing, pulling fire alarms, and the like. Whether openly trying to silence those they oppose or just dumping glitter on them, the far-left is incapable of debating their...

AP/Univision Hispanic Poll shows lukewarm support for assimilation - 10/13/10

An Associated Press / Univision poll of Hispanics conducted earlier this year [1] shows lukewarm support for assimilation, that Hispanics are mostly associating with other Hispanics, that many Hispanics consider "Hispanic" to be a race, and low support for the GOP. Demographic information is at [2]. * Here's the breakdown for "How important is it for Hispanics/Latinos to change so that they blend...

Arizona helped deport 26,000 illegal aliens under 287g (Arpaio, Maricopa County) - 07/28/10

Per this biased Associated Press article, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona helped deport more than 26,000 illegal aliens under the 287g program. That's of course without that state's new immigration law, which is set to take effect tomorrow. Maricopa was responsible for about one-quarter of all those deported under 287g (115,841 total); 64 local agencies are part of the 287g program...

Juliana Barbassa of AP promotes UFW's anti-American "joke" (yes, Americans do field work) - 06/25/10

Juliana Barbassa of the Associated Press offers "Immigrant farm workers' challenge: Take our jobs" (link) about a new satirical campaign from the United Farmworkers of America. The UFW's campaign is anti-American; if you aren't familiar with this story see the last link. This post only deals with Barbassa's treatment. She says: According to the Labor Department, three out of four farm workers...

Two examples of how tea partiers aren't effective (big AP report, whoo) - 06/20/10

... abuzz about the release of a new Associated Press article that was supposed to be a fair look at their movement. And, it's here. Unlike other AP and mainstream media reports, it is generally fair to their side. But, because the tea partiers are what they are, they won't be able to see how it reveals yet again just how ineffective and generally worthless they are.

Martha Mendoza of AP misleads over crime on U.S.-Mexico border - 06/03/10

... comes from Martha Mendoza of the Associated Press. The original AP title is "AP Impact: US-Mexico border isn't so dangerous" [1] and it's based on statistics contained in a new FBI report [2] and on data they received via a FOIA request from Customs and Border Protection (CBP): It's one of the safest parts of America, and it's getting safer. It's the U.S.-Mexico border, and even as politicians...

Carla Salazar of the Associated Press offers a Topsy-Turvy World article called "Peruvian child becomes symbol of US undocumented" [1] about the seven-year-old girl who revealed to Michelle Obama that her mother was here illegally, causing Michelle Obama to advocate for comprehensive immigration reform. The article contains this:

Meg Whitman opposes Arizona immigration law (Jerry Brown too; Poizner will wait and see) - 04/27/10

Juliet Williams of the Associated Press asked the three leading California gubernatorial candidates for their positions on Arizona's new illegal immigration law (link): Meg Whitman was, of course, on the wrong side: "I think there's just better ways to solve this problem... I'm a big believer in, 'What are the two or three things that will make the biggest difference here?'" She then mentioned...

Hawaii considers blocking questions about Barack Obama birth certificate - 03/17/10

It's Sunshine Week - a celebration of access to government records (sunshineweek.org) - and some in Hawaii want to go the other way: their state House Judiciary Committee was presented with a proposed bill that would allow state officials to ignore requests about the Obama citizenship issue. Needless to say, such a move would be cheered by plenty of borderline fascists on the mainland too; they'd...

E-Verify fails to detect illegal aliens 54% of the time; Schumer, MPI cheer - 02/25/10

From Suzanne Gamboa of the Associated Press comes this: The online tool E-Verify, now used voluntarily by employers, wrongly clears illegal workers about 54 percent of the time, according to Westat, a research company that evaluated the system for the Homeland Security Department. E-Verify missed so many illegal workers mainly because it can't detect identity fraud, Westat said. "Clearly it means...

Another immigration legalization rally held in Atlanta - 01/06/10

Associated Press/Harry Weber/October 7, 2006/ link ...Six months after 50,000 immigrants and their supporters marched in downtown Atlanta to protest legislation that cracks down on illegal immigrants, the same organizers rallied with a much smaller but similarly vocal crowd...."We want to open the door," said one of the pro immigration rally organizers, Teodoro Maus, 'former Mexican consul in...

Laura Wides-Munoz of AP's noxious racial bean-counting (does Obama discriminate against white males in cabinet?) - 12/21/09

Laura Wides Munoz of the Associated Press offers a noxious bit of racial bean-counting in "Obama naming Hispanics to top posts at record pace" (link):

Sarah Palin now "Birther"? Certificate is "fair game"; what her supporters must do - 12/03/09

... and Justin Juozapavicius of the Associated Press offer "Sarah Palin's fans push for 2012 presidential run" (link). It shows a) how the MSM will use this issue to try to discredit Palin, and b) how her supporters who aren't trying to discredit the MSM are in effect helping the MSM with their goal. These are the 9th through 11th paragraphs: "B.O. scares me," said Miki Booth, 59, of the president,...

Huffington Post, AP mislead about Sarah Palin book; opponents not effective (pipeline deal) - 11/18/09

The Huffington Post and the Associated Press are reviving a smear both perpetrated against Sarah Palin about a year ago. At the same time, most of Palin's defenders aren't taking effective steps to counter-act what HuffPost and the AP are doing. In October of last year, AP writers Garance Burke and Justin Pritchard wrote about one of Palin's resume points, a pipeline deal. As contemporaneously...

NAS-revised Census Bureau stats: almost 1 in 6 U.S. residents in poverty (+Hope Yen lies) - 10/20/09

... in this case, Hope Yen of the Associated Press is lying too (link). What she calls "Americans" are actually U.S. residents; not all are U.S. citizens:

Boy Scouts go after Hispanic market with Spanish-language Handbook - 10/09/09

Juliana Barbassa of the Associated Press offers this (bolding added): The Boy Scouts are making their debut "en espanol," with an advertising campaign launched Thursday and a soon-to-come Spanish-language Scout Handbook intended to draw Latinos to the ranks of the nearly century-old organization. The Spanish-language campaign, called "Valores para toda la vida," translated as "Values for life,"...

But they don't know...

Chuck Todd misleads about Obamacare (illegal alien coverage, abortions, Calvin Woodward) - 08/19/09

... covered under his plan. 2. Even the Associated Press admitted on August 6 that "Health care legislation before Congress would allow a new government-sponsored insurance plan to cover abortions" (llink). 3. The other two points are basically a matter of opinion and forecasting. Since a national healthcare scheme wouldn't have unlimited resources, some form of rationing would have to come into...

Jaymes Song of AP lies about what Hawaii's DOH Director actually said - 08/05/09

Jaymes Song of the Associated Press decided to re-write history in the July 27 article "Hawaii again declares Obama birth certificate real" (link). The same title is used on a few other reports at different sites, so that's the original AP title. And, as will be shown, the title and the content contain a major lie. Song writes:

My question for the Youtube/Barack Obama July 1, 2009 healthcare townhall - 06/30/09

... Babbington and Philip Elliott of the Associated Press more or less admit this was a sham (link): [Debbie Smith from the Exhibit A quote above] is a volunteer for Organizing for America, Obama's political operation within the Democratic National Committee. She obtained her ticket through the White House... But details on exactly how to do those things were generally lacking in his hour-long town...

The unbylined Associated Press article "Group recommends immigration court improvements" (link) sounds OK at first glance: A national advocacy group recommended Wednesday improving the country's beleaguered immigration court system by reforming how judges are selected and promoting impartiality. A study by Appleseed, a non-profit that works to reform the justice system, also suggested improving...

He's giving a two minute answer that boils down to what anyone should have expected he would say: no. She also asked whether he'll be ordering quarantines and he didn't answer that. Now he's engaging in what he refers to as "trivial" advice to wash your hands and so on....

El Paso: visitors waved through border, little or no screening, just like normal day - 04/28/09

The Associated Press offers this report from El Paso, Texas: U.S. airport officials and border agents waved people through Monday with little or no additional screening for Mexico’s deadly swine flu - a far more muted reaction than the extreme caution elsewhere around the world. At the main pedestrian border crossing between El Paso and Mexico’s Ciudad Juarez, a handful of people wore protective...
