Another misleading Public Religion Research Institute immigration poll (Saperstein, Preston, CNN) - 11/25/13

... the deceptive PRRI poll include Julia Preston of the New York Times ("In Report, 63% Back Way to Get Citizenship", peekURL.com/zs7n8Rn ) and Ashley Killough of CNN ("Polls: Majority still support pathway to citizenship", peekURL.com/zXL5qBM ).

Julia Preston promotes Dayton looking the other way on illegal immigration (Ohio, headscarves) - 10/07/13

... York Times, immigration reporter Julia Preston offers a cookie-cutter article that follows the Crooked Town Story model. In those types of stories, a town that's supposedly in bad shape decides to look the other way on our immigration laws and - presto chango! - the town becomes a bustling hub of commerce.

Among other...

Obama voting push: relaxes Green Card wait time for illegal alien family members (Luis Gutierrez) - 01/06/12

... without saying that the article by Julia Preston of the New York Times reads more like an advocacy piece than a news report. She refers to rules enacted by Congress as a "notorious snag" and a "Catch-22", and everything in her report presents the new rule in the best light possible and from the perspective of those who would break our immigration laws. 4. For some counterweight, Lamar Smith (R-...
