President Trump on Friday blasted what he described as a media double standard on immigration, as he honored families whose loved ones were killed by illegal immigrants and accused the press of ignoring them to focus on the plight of migrants caught crossing the border.
After a week of saturation coverage on illegal immigrant parents separated from their children -- a policy Trump reversed under public and political pressure -- the president stressed that so-called Angel Families have been “permanently separated.”
The families, whose children and other relatives were killed by illegal immigrants, echoed that message during the White House event.
“You don’t hear these stories,” said Steve Ronnebeck, whose 21-year-old son Grant was killed by an illegal immigrant over a pack of cigarettes. “But this is permanent separation.”
President Trump signed an executive order keeping children with their families, as well as directing authorities to no longer prosecute families who are trying to cross with children. That hasn't stopped the anti-Trump crowd from criticizing Trump.
Do you think the media has double standards when it comes to immigration? Are they only showing one side, whichever side makes Trump look bad?
