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.

Mainstream Media TOTALLY IGNORES Heinous Murder of 5-Year Old White North Carolina Child, Black Man Charged
Imagine if it were reversed.
Nearly 24 hours after North Carolina’s WRAL broke the news of the heinous murder of a five-year old child, mainstream media outlets such as CNN and MSNBC are yet to cover the story.
Darius N. Sessoms, a 25-year old black man, has been accused by witnesses of callously shooting white five-year old Cannon Hinnant, who was riding his bike through Wilson, North Carolina.
Sessoms was brought into custody and charged with first degree murder on Sunday night.
ABC News, Reuters, and NBC are among the other corporate news outlets that are steadfastly ignoring the story, as of Tuesday night.
The national media is a disgrace. I cannot tell you how much contempt I have for these disgusting frauds. pic.twitter.com/Wtp44oQznt

Every one of these news outlets has extensively covered incidences of crime in which the races of the perpetrator and the victim are reversed, including the Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd cases. In both cases, similarly to the Hinnant case, the alleged prepetrators were arrested and charged in the crimes. They’re remarkably silent when it comes to a case in which the alleged perpetrator is black, even though the murder of the five year old child appears to be even more heinous and senseless than the deaths of two grown men.
Sessoms’ brother appears to be a convicted pedophile.
Reports of the killing also appear to dismiss the racial dynamics of the heinous crime, declining to share pictures of the victim and the suspect.
