The mainstream press went bonkers over the weekend after Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested an illegal immigrant while he was driving his pregnant wife to the hospital, but left out a key fact in order to make the law enforcement agency seem cruel.
Jose Arrona Lara was arrested at a gas station in San Bernardino, CA while driving his wife Maria del Carmen Venegas, to the hospital for a scheduled cesarean section.
An ICE official confirmed that Arrona Lara was wanted on homicide charges.
“Mr. Arrona-Lara was brought to ICE’s attention due to an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Mexico on homicide charges,” ICE spokeswoman Lori Haley told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Daniel Dale of CBS Los Angeles posted a viral tweet about the incident, which garnered nearly 27,000 retweets.

Only later did he clarify that Arrona Lara was wanted for murder, in a Tweet that received only about 1,000 retweets.
Important update: ICE said today that this man was arrested because of a homicide warrant for him in Mexico. ICE didn’t mention this in its comments to media yesterday. His lawyer says he denies that there are such Mexico charges; no details from ICE yet. https://t.co/AnIfv8DapM

This is how the mainstream press obfuscates the truth. They whipped up a frenzy of outrage around ICE, but failed to mention that they were taking a violent criminal off the streets.
“OMFG. ICE detained a husband as he was driving his wife for a C-section. She had to drive herself to hospital. The cruelty and inhumanity of this regime!” Tweeted writer Amy Siskind.

“ICE detained Joel while he drove his wife to the hospital to deliver their baby. How is government serving its purpose here? How does this better society? This leaves a mom without a partner, a baby without a father, and us without a soul.
#AbolishICE,” wrote failed Michigan gubernatorial candidate Adbul El-Sayed, who ran on a platform of abolishing the law enforcement entity.

Some prominent commentators reacted rationally.
“This article epitomizes
#FakeNews by leaving out the little detail that the guy is wanted for murder in Mexico,” wrote author Dinesh D’Souza on Twitter.

WATCH: Trump ROASTS Acosta: “Go Ahead Jim, Try Another One”
The President shut down Acosta’s inane question.
President Donald Trump shut down CNN showman Jim Acosta’s attempts to insinuate strange conspiracies at Friday’s Presidential press briefing on the response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic. Acosta demanded that the President reveal the exact location of Dr. Anthony Fauci, apparently believing that the federal medical advisor had been shut out of the coronavirus response.
President Trump had been discussing attempts to marshal medical facemasks from 3M, combating attempts by the nominally American company to export the needed equipment to foreign countries for profit. Acosta tried to divert from the relevant topic at hand with irrelevant questions about the participants of the press briefing.
“Where is Doctor Fauci?”
Watch the exchange here:
“Every time he’s not here… Sometimes I’ll ask him to come because that’s the first question that you and a couple of others from the fake news establishment ask… We’re doing great together.”
Of course the President isn’t required to account for the whereabouts of Dr. Fauci at all times. Key federal personnel overseeing the pandemic response have a wide range of responsibilities that prevent them from being present at every single daily press briefing.
Trump went on to line up Acosta for what likely would’ve been another political and irrelevant question, savagely telling the CNN operative to “Go ahead Jim, try another one.”
As Jim Acosta tries repeatedly to derail attempts to provide the American public with vital information about the federal coronavirus response, it’s probably worth considering temporarily (or permanently) suspending his press credentials in order to allow the near-daily briefings to focus upon policy substance.
Acosta has been suspended from the White House press pool before, following disruptive attempts to derail substantial briefings with political nonsense.
