What was buried in the Trump/DREAMer deportation story?

The intended to be sympathetic protagonist of the story falls far short

The USA Today report was intended to be a heartstrings tugger. Titled “DREAMer is first to be deported under Trump,” it also provides another means of hammering President Donald Trump. As exotic dancer Gypsy Rose Lee quickly learned, ‘Ya gotta have a gimmick.”

Described as “shy,” Juan Manuel Montes, 23, rates kid glove treatment from reporters Alan Gomez and David Agren, whose mission is not only making victims of illegals, but getting their licks in on the Republican president.

The two-page article with an oversize full color photo of Montes, begins above-the-fold on Page One. The headline referred to in the opening paragraph here sweeps across the Gannett flagship’s front page. Gannett is the parent company of the Arizona Republic, which continues to shrink in size and content, often repeating identical articles in the same exact issue, earning it’s nom de plume, the Daily Regurgitation

The thrust is this hapless character, Juan Manuel Montes, mysteriously finds himself in a series of events that lead him to being repatriated to his native Mexico.

He is quoted as saying, “I thought that if I kept my nose clean, nothing would happen.” In his world theft and disobeying the law obviously qualify.

Buried at the end of the bobbing and weaving account of “undocumented” Montes we read that Court records show he has four convictions: one for shoplifting in January 2016, and three for driving without a license, most recently three months ago. There is a glib “the dog ate my homework” type of explanation offered for the lack of a license, having to do with leaving his wallet in a friend’s auto.

According to the newspaper’s report, Montes’ convictions are not serious enough to disqualify him from Barack Obama’s imposed DACA protections. Repeatedly entering the USA by stealth, in violation of the law and committing further crimes once here, isn’t murder, after all.

 For a memory refresher, read D.R.E.A.M. Act morphs into dreamy amnesty. It fills in the blanks in the USA Today fairy tale.

    The USA Today article is simply more of the pro-illegal agenda being promoted by the left leaning media that never saw an illegal unworthy of sympathy and accolades.

    My grandparents legally immigrated from Italy in the early 1900’s. They were hardworking and patriotic. All of their kids were instilled with a love of the USA and my dad and uncles all enlisted in the military and served in combat for this country. They asked for nothing and received nothing EXCEPT the fabulous opportunity to come here, acclimate to being Americans and were proud citizens. All of their grandchildren and great grandchildren are college grads.
    Quite a difference from much of what we’re seeing with today’s illegals and their demands, while accessing taxpayer funded benefits and often thumbing their noses at the law, such as Juan Montes.

    Shoplifting and repeating flouting the law while putting other people at risk as an unlicensed driver, don’t register as criminal acts with Juan Manuel Montes. He’s too busy “dreaming,” to care about anything other than himself. Mexico is is homeland and his father is there, so they can keep one another company.

    I lifted this from the “D.R.E.A.M. Act morphs into dreamy amnesty” linked in today’s post. It clarifies what this scheme is all about and how any claims can be made regarding illegal entry into the United States. There is no process for authentication or any legitimate means of verification. Good luck at taking lawbreakers at their word:

    Those applying for the gift of U.S. citizenship need only affirm they were 16 years of age or younger when they initially entered the United States and are currently 35 years of age or younger. They have to declare that they have been persons of good moral character since initially being brought to the U.S. as children by their parents — illegally. Verifying how many came as babes in arms or ably propelled themselves over the border last year at age 34 is impossible to substantiate.

    Lookey here:
    “A federal lawsuit brought by a so-called “Dreamer” deported to Mexico has been assigned to District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel — the jurist famously attacked by then-candidate Donald Trump over his “Mexican heritage” in a separate case involving Trump University.”

    “Juan Manuel Montes, 23, filed a complaint Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, alleging that the government did not provide any documentation explaining the legality of sending him back to Mexico. The suit seeks documents related to his case.”

    The case was assigned at random to Curiel, the Indiana-born judge whose impartiality was called into question by Trump last year due to what the then-candidate called Curiel’s “Mexican heritage. . . .”

    Assigned at random—yeah, right.

    Judge Curiel is an Obama appointee who oversaw the Trump University lawsuit which settled last November for $25 million.

    small world

    • Kimball says:

      Small world my ass! I smell a rat. Several, actually. Thanks for this item, as disgusting as it is. As SRAZ often reminds us, “knowledge is power.”

      • Saguaro Sam says:

        my remark about it being a small world was meant to indicate the odiferous nature of this.
        Judge Curiel was said to have been selected at random.
        If there’s only one name in the hat, how random can it be?

        Meanwhile, in AZ:
        State Rep. Debbie Lesko has obviously been noticed as being too conservative:

        “Peoria Unified School District Governing Board member Kathy Knecht announced that she will run against Sen. Debbie Lesko (R-Peoria) for Legislative District 21 in the 2018 General Election.”

        “Ms. Knecht is running as an independent.”

        “The district includes parts of Peoria, Glendale and Sun City.”

        “A longtime community servant and public education advocate, Ms. Knecht said in an email that she is aiming for Ms. Lesko’s seat because her policies move the state in the wrong direction, particularly in terms of public education. She cited Ms. Lesko’s recently passed law that expands private school vouchers as destructive and siphoning money away from public education. . . .”

        So that’s what they’re calling themselves now—independents.
