Media Fails To Mention 6 Murder Suspects Are Illegal Immigrants

The media picks and chooses what you see based on how they want society to act and behave, and the examples are all around us.

I talked about this at length in a piece about the media playing cover for Beto, but this is FAR more egregious.

Left wing talking heads are quick to point out that “immigrants commit less crime”, but that’s the most obvious statement. There’s less of them so OF COURSE THEY WILL COMMIT LESS CRIME.

You’ll notice that these people are quick to tell us that illegal immigrants AREN’T criminals, but how often do you hear them making a positive case for these people? How often do leftists say “these illegal immigrants are going to fill our medical field needs”? Never…

Perhaps that’s why the media doesn’t cover a case where a group of illegal immigrants are charged with murdering an American citizen. According to authorities, Daniel Alejandro Cuellar was found lying near an apartment building with “trauma to the body.” The police were able to arrest multiple suspects, but for reasons we all know, the media didn’t cover this in the same way they would if, say, the “gang” were made up of white people.

This from JudicialWatch.org:

This week seven suspects were arrested and charged with first degree murder for Cuellar’s death. Baltimore County authorities published the information along with the names and mug shots of each individual. It is easy to conclude from the look of the mug shots and the accompanying names that the suspects are all Hispanic, though immigration status is not mentioned in the county bulletin. The arrested are identified as 20-year-old Jonathan Escobar-Hernandez, 20-year-old Marlon Leonardo Fabian-Flores, 18-year-old Edwin Edgardo Garcia-Martir, 31-year-old Hugo Portillo-Chavez, 19-year-old Joe Fausto Rivera-Coreas, 20-year-old Odaliz Rosas-Yanez and 16-year-old Leonel Alexander Velasquez-Hernandez. All seven are being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center and face life in prison if convicted.

The recent arrests received quite a bit of news coverage, from newspaper and radio outlets to local affiliates of national television networks. They variously rehashed the crime and cited the medical examiner’s determination that Cuellar was killed with multiple sharp force objects. One national news headline reads: “Seven People, Including Juvenile, Charged With Murder After Body Found Near Towson Apartment.” Another, published by a local outlet, simply says “Seven Charged In Baltimore County Murder.” None of the coverage bothers to mention the pertinent information regarding the suspects’ immigration status and confirmed affiliation to a famously violent criminal gang that operates all over the United States. This seems to violate the tenants of journalism, which include accuracy, fairness, objectivity and impartiality.

That last part is critical. Journalists are supposed to give you the most accurate information you need. The reason? So you can use that knowledge to navigate life. Unfortunately the media is more concerned with not hurting someone’s feelings than they are at delivering the entire truth.

We only know this essential information about these Baltimore suspects because a conservative news outlet bothered to do some real reporting. In a story appropriately titled “Media blackout: At least 6 illegal aliens charged with brutal murder in Baltimore suburb,” the Conservative Review reveals that, unlike other media outlets, it actually contacted Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to find out if the agency had detainers on any of the arrestees accused of murdering Cuellar. ICE confirmed that six of the seven are illegal aliens—five from El Salvador and one from Mexico—in the agency’s system and members of the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), long designated as a transnational criminal organization by the U.S. government. Last year ICE removed nearly 6,000 gangbangers from the country, including 1,332 MS-13 members, according to agency figures. It marked a 24% increase from the previous year.

If you think this is an isolated case, realize that you probably didn’t even know THIS happened, so who knows what else goes swept under the rug?

Media outlets wonder why we call them “fake”. We aren’t stupid. We see what is going on. Now they have to decide if they are going to keep peddling lies, or give truth a chance.
