attacked Trump’s speecheven before he delivered it (Jonathan Karl at CBS almost threw a tantrum prior). Since then, the hive-mind of MSM journalists have avoided the central issue of crime and have instead focused at length on bureaucrats’ paychecks and ignored crimes by illegal aliens.


There is a game that philosophers like to toss back and forth: if a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, has it made a sound? The mainstream media (MSM), both in the USA and abroad, has the firm belief that if an event is not reported (as news) then it didn’t happen and no one is the wiser. Dictatorships adhere to this principle.


nationwide study. So, if anyone insists that illegals don’t commit crimes, then submit the following which are only a tiny fraction of crimes committed.

The Fascist Devil
Trump Twice?

  • Gustavo Garcia, a previously deported alien murdered a 51-year-old American.
  • Franco Cambrany Francisco-Eduardo killed the son of a fire department captain.
  • Joel Valera, a deported illegal alien, committed a sex crime, carried out domestic violence and shot and killed 40-year-old Arthur Gomez Jr.
  • Jose Ramirez-Valesco an illegal alien from Mexico, raped a 16-year-old girl.
  • After local officials ignored an ICE detainer request, Miguel Luna brutally beat and raped three women.
  • New Jersey, which is a self-styled sanctuary state, refused an ICE detainer for Luis Rodrigo Perez, an illegal immigrant from Mexico. Upon release, he murdered three people.
  • Non-citizen households use welfare twice as much as citizen households.
  • Darwin Martinez Torres, an MS-13 gang member, raped and murdered a Muslim girl (which the media showcased as an instance of American Islamophobia).
  • Pablo Serrano-Vitorino, an illegal alien from Mexico, murdered five Americans.
  • Pablo Villavicencio Calderon, an illegal immigrant from Ecuador was guilty of domestic violence. Democrats fought against his extradition.
  • “Pocahontas” Warren told the family that they should focus on the poor migrant families instead of their daughter. CNN commentator Symone Sanders and Rekha Basu, independent of each other, blamed the killing on “toxic masculinity.” Well, the parents also didn’t think that illegal immigrants were the problem. In fact, the mother afterwards invited an illegal immigrant to live with her.
  • Rodriguez-Garcia was deported ten times and during that time, he committed theft, possession/sale of drugs, auto theft, and rape. Although he does not belong to MS-13, surely he qualifies for Pelosi’s “spark of divinity.”
  • Oregon, Eduardo de la Lima Vargas, drunk while driving, killed a couple, thereby orphaning their four children.
  • In San Francisco, five times deported Jose Ines Garcia Zarate shot and killed Kate Steinle. California is a “sanctuary state.” Incredibly Zarate was not convicted in San Francisco. He subsequently sued Trump for saying bad things about the murderer. And when UC-SD Republicans put fliers in campus on Steinle, UC-SD College Democrats published a statement on their Facebook page condemning what they described as “racist propaganda” while at UC Berkeley, leftists vandalized posters announcing a vigil for Steinle.
  • In Tucson, two Ethiopians were arrested for fraud when it was found that they had ties to the terrorist organization Al-Shabab.

  • In New York, Ever Martinez-Reyes from El Salvador, while “looking for a better life,” raped a woman and broke her jaw.

  • Margarito Quintero, an illegal immigrant on his way to “looking for a better life” killed a father and his two infant children.

Well, one of those priceless youths murdered Grant Ronnebeck for a pack of cigarettes. 60,000 DACAs have an arrest record and in Arizona, DACAs make up 8% of the jail population.
  • Drew Rosenberg was killed by Roberto Galo in 2010, an illegal immigrant from Honduras.

  • Galtsog Gantulga, a Mongolian DACA, had two DWIs, one of which was a hit and run.

  • Illegal alien Francisco Manzano started a fire in the hanger of a US military base in Arizona.
  • In Massachusetts, 17-year-old Herson Rivas was butchered by MS-13 members from El Salvador.

  • Wilfredo Perez-Aguilar is a Guatemalan illegal immigrant who was sentenced and deported for raping a 12-year-old and was recently caught trying to reenter the United States. If ICE had been abolished as so many liberals want it to be, he would be already inside the country.

  • Joel Arrona Lara was detained by ICE while driving his pregnant wife to the hospital, whereupon the MSM hive-mind instantly proclaimed him nationally and loudly as a victim and martyr to Trump’s cruel policy. In a turn of events, the illegal immigrant was wanted for murder in Mexico, rather than having committed a murder in the US (at least, not yet). His wife’s hospital bill was paid by taxpayers.

When the Woke Reawaken


protected and sanitized by liberals in various ways while deliberately ignoring inconvenient facts, such as that 70% “asylum seekers” don’t bother to show up to court). Amazon’s Jeff Bezos set aside $33 million for scholarships for illegals (nothing for Americans, or legal immigrants) with New York State allocating $27 million, while Los Angeles has legalized street vendors for illegal immigrants’ benefit and Denver legalized public defecating in the streets for their benefit.


Meanwhile, mass deportations  and border patrols have proven to curtail criminal gang activity. But the media doesn’t report it. They’re pushing the mantra that the issue is Trump’s “fake crisis.”


The tree has fallen in the forest and many people have heard it.
