Why Isn't Juan Worried About Revealing Himself on CNN?
At 6:43 am EDT this morning, CNN ran a segment sympathetic to illegal aliens, suggesting that the proposed immigration law created too many hurdles for them. "American Morning" host Alina Cho narrated the piece, which focused on an illegal Mexican immigrant in New York City. Among the details about him that were, with his obvious cooperation, revealed:
- His name, apparently not an alias, is Juan. He is from Mexico. We saw and heard him in a completely open and undisguised manner throughout the segment.
- He is a cashier in a wine store in New York City, where he earns $400/week. Considerable footage of the interior of the store and the street on which it is located were aired.
- Juan has a "long-time partner," Reina, and two children. Footage of Reina and the interior of his apartment were shown.
- Reina is apparently also an illegal, since we were told she would have to pay the same $5,000 fine as Juan
- We were shown footage of what was apparently the outside of Juan's home, and of his neighborhood, with Juan, Reina and the children walking down the street.
- We were told that Juan's goal is to open a tae-kwan-do studio, and we saw Juan working out inside such a studio.
Given all the information about Juan, his family, job and home that the segment revealed, you would think an investigator could determine his identity with ease. Yet Juan was obviously unconcerned about that possibility. If illegals can so brazenly identify themselves under current law, why should Americans have any confidence that the government will strictly apply future regulations that would call for massive administration and enforcement for millions of people?
