LAT Tries to Create Sympathy for Illegals Fleeing Fires
I don't want to sound heartless towards the many victims of the California wildfires, but this L.A. Times piece is just a sob story shilling for illegal alien sympathy!
Flames were only one worry for some illegal immigrants in the fire zone. Equally scary were the crowded roads and evacuation centers, heavy with law enforcement officers, including U.S. Border Patrol agents.
Some wondered if they would be deported if they went to shelters.
It gets even better. The ACLU is really trying to pull at the liberal heart-strings with ridiculous statements like this one:
Immigrant rights groups and the American Civil Liberties Union, however, claim that authorities have created a climate of intimidation through neglect and such policies as asking for identification at some shelters.
You have got to be kidding me! They might as well have said that authorities are creating a “climate of fear” by upholding the law! Oh wait! Practically, that is what they said.
The article goes on to describe how other "immigrants" were petrified after hearing rumors of some thieves being arrested and deported after being caught stealing! Of course the ACLU claim that this was racial profiling.
The article is one of the most transparent sympathy pieces I've seen in quite a while.
