The National Narrative on Illegal Immigration

Poll after poll shows that the majority of Americans demand border control and are against amnesty. Yet, the national media and our elected leaders continue to tell a different story.

These videos ( and surfaced of an NBC cameraman filming during the May 1st pro-amnesty protests. They clearly show the media is not the objective observers they claim to be.

After these latest rounds of pro-amnesty protests the national story was about the Los Angeles police cracking the heads of “peaceful” protestors. Ignoring the fact those protesting were by and large criminal illegal aliens and should have been arrested on site, it was those very protestors that turned violent after not understanding when they were repeatedly asked in English by police to disperse. This of course caused the necessary response from the LA police to control the situation.

Last year, the media and other pro-amnesty advocates attempted to change the language of illegal immigration. Illegal aliens became undocumented workers. Immigrants became migrants, as if the illegal aliens plan to return to Mexico at the end of the season. Amnesty became “a path to citizenship”.

For well over a year pro-amnesty supporters have been creating a narrative to support their agenda while ignoring the simple facts of illegal immigration. Whether it’s corporate slavery or white guilt driving these agendas is tough to say. When both extremes come together like they have on this issue, it’s the American poor and middleclass that suffer.
