Jim Acosta Lectures Angel Mom: The Problem Is Trump’s ‘Demonizing’ of Illegals
In attendance at the press conference were Angel Moms who have lost loved ones to crimes by illegals. One of those moms is Agnes Gibboney. She walked up to Acosta after the press conference and the journalist attempted to show compassion for her.
Acosta condescendingly explained to Gibboney: “When we hear the President talk about immigration, he tends to talk about it in ways that demonize immigrants and that just don’t stick to the facts.”
Acosta Refers to Children of Angel Moms as ‘Allegedly Killed by Undocumented Immigrants’
CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta referred to Angel Moms as having their children “allegedly killed by undocumented immigrants” on Friday.
Acosta reported from the White House on Friday before President Donald Trump’s speech and subsequent press conference about his decision to declare a national emergency at the southern border, in order to secure funding for his long-promised wall.
Mothers of children killed by illegal immigrants brandished pictures of their children at Trump’s announcement, reportedly drawing derision from one reporter in attendance.
“We saw people leaving the White House there with photos. Do we know who they are?” anchor Jim Sciutto asked.
“Jim, we believe those are some of the Angel Moms that the president has talked so much about out on the campaign trail, at rallies and so on,” Acosta said. “These are parents of victims who were allegedly killed by undocumented immigrants. The president likes to point to these folks who have been through some terrible experiences as evidence a wall is needed down at the border.”
“I suspect, Jim, if we’re seeing some of the Angel Moms coming in, the president is going to be trying to drum up some emotional energy on this occasion here, to try to sell this wall,” he added. “We have seen him do it before.”
Later, Sciutto referred to the Angel Moms as “mothers who lost children, or alleged to have lost children to undocumented immigrants in this country.”
CNN the Fake News Network and blabbering Nit Wit Jim Acosta so who still watches CNN anymore their Liars and Propegandists for the left and that’s why Americans no longer trusts the scumballs
Unlike the last prez, who paraded sick kids and actors in scrubs to drum up support for a bogus health care plan.
Criminal or illegal er undocumented immigrants committed 25,064 murders, they are allegedly being housed in our alleged prison system.(per FBI records)
California alone, over 2,400 illegal immigrants as guests of the prison system for homicide.
I think Trump could find many more Angel moms for Jimmy to insult and insinuate they are fake.
Why do we have to negotiate with our law makers to uphold the laws?
Hey Jimmy include this in your report about manufactued emergencies …
Recent crime analysis by both the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Texas law enforcement authorities indicate that between June 2011 and March 2017, over 217,000 criminal immigrants were arrested and booked into Texas jails.
In researching the criminal careers of these defendants, it was revealed that they had jointly committed over nearly 600,000 criminal offenses. Their arrests included nearly 1,200 homicides; almost 69,000 assaults; 16,854 burglaries; 700 kidnappings; nearly 6,200 sexual assaults; 69,000 drug offenses; 8,700 weapons violations; over 3,800 robberies and over 45,000 obstructing police charges. In determining the status of these offenders in the U.S., it was confirmed by DHS that over 173,000 or 66 percent of these immigrant criminal defendants were in our country illegally at the times of their arrests.
why does this gigantic POS still have a WH Press Pass????
Acosta will never have to worry about home invaders because he can armed protection 24/7 while rejecting the idea of armed citizens
In little Jimmie’s defense, he probably never HEARD of Angel Mom’s before yesterday. I’m sure he feels they should be a bit more open minded about the minor sacrifice of a loved one compared to lowering the cost of lawn care.
The only purpose Acosta serves is to provide a concentrated example of all of liberaldom. And it is neither pretty or complementary.
Do Guatemalan mothers who have lost their children also qualify as Angel Moms?
In fact, undocumented aliens commit crimes of all types at a significantly lower rate than native born Americans.
25,064 is a made-up figure.
Two charts demolish the notion that immigrants here illegally commit more crime
@Greg: Well gee two can post stories here.
Or how about this one.. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/jan/26/illegals-commit-crimes-double-rate-native-born-stu/
One more for good measure just murder this time. https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2015/07/illegal_aliens_murder_at_a_much_higher_rate_than_us_citizens_do.html
I know you’ll want to keep up so here you go.
Why do we continue to ignore the word “illegal”?
Did US illegal immigrants kill them? Maybe they DO… in Guatemala.
No they don’t. They commit crimes at a far higher rate. I’ve provided you the information before.
I suppose if you were on a sinking ship you would deny water was gushing in and just call it high humidity. This confirms, at least that the only thing liberals have to refute the need for border security are lies and denial of facts.
They had a choice. The children killed by illegals had no choice.
@Greg: #8 A made up number? Those are in prison you think they dont know who is locked up? We re housing feeding and caging them, you know behind walls. Those are FBI numbers lord knows we cant trust them right? Why accuse me of making up numbers just use your search engine and correct me.
Look up prison populations search. Before they are arrested they cant ask citizenship but I think they might know afterwards, knucklehead.
The study in Texas was done under the Obama administration between June 2011 and March 2017 only concluding 2 months into the Trump administration did the DHS fudge the numbers under Barry? The charts per WaPo ya suuuure a trusted source. Fudging or ignoring the percentage of population. With that type of math I could make pitbulls look as dangerous as toy poodles.
Yeah, they are probably LOW.
The number apparently refers to undocumented aliens arrested on suspicion of homicide over a period of 55 years. It isn’t the number of actual convictions, and the period in question covers over half-a-century.
This is the kind of misleading b.s. Trump routinely throws out like red meat to work up his rally crowds. Once it’s out there, it bounces around the echo chamber forever.
The White House’s Misleading & Error Ridden Narrative on Immigrants and Crime
@Greg: The other links aren’t “misleading”. What IS misleading is the left making the argument that there is no threat to safety from an open and inviting border and that deaths directly related to the Democrats’ position on illegal immigration are imaginary. It’s why Pelosi refuses to meet with Angel Moms or actually visit the border and hear FACTS about illegal immigration. Oh, you can exploit a photo of a girl being taken from her mother, even though you have to lie about the facts of the encounter but you can’t face those who have been tragically affected by illegal immigrant crime.
@Greg: Whats the number you were requested to correct me, I did not get the number from any Trump speech I pulled it off gateway.
This is off a government site
GAO estimates that costs to incarcerate criminal aliens in federal prisons and SCAAP reimbursements to states and localities ranged from about $1.5 billion to $1.6 billion annually from fiscal years 2005 through 2009;
I bet its loads cheaper now huh.
The number of murdering illegals in California prisons is accurate.
Overall percentage of the criminal alien population carcerated in federal prisons remained consistently around 27 percent of the total inmate population from 2001 though 2004.12 In fiscal year 2005, if they as a population commit less crime are they way over 27% of our population?
The made up number is on page 21 of the GAO report its older data but a true statement. It isnt 50 years of totals someone lied to you.
Even deportation did not decrease the numbers over 5 years, like they sent replacements.
@Deplorable Me, #15:
Of course they’re misleading. Let’s take it from the top, and see how far we get before we run into an example of seemingly reasonable nonsense.
They’re counting conviction of illegal immigration itself in the statistics, which nearly doubles the count. This instantly renders the entire statistical comparison between citizens and non-citizens ridiculous, since it’s a legal violation a U.S. citizen can’t even be charged with. Then there’s the fact that they’re looking only at conviction for federal crimes. Federal convictions represent only a small fraction of all criminal convictions in the United States; most convictions are at the state level. This renders any conclusion about who is more likely to commit a crime based utterly meaningless.
From the Washington Times:
Uh huh. Which 4,000 first- and second-degree murder convictions? There were over 17,000 homicides in the United States in 2017 alone. The Washington Times article states Mr. Lott’s data covered the period from 1985 through 2017. Obviously 4,000 can’t represent a remotely comprehensive sample. There’s no reason to think it’s a random sample, either.
I’m not going to waste time on each you’ve linked. The first two are enough to make my point. Lies take various forms. B.S. conclusions drawn from bogus statistical studies is a popular sort, because it can be presented in a way that seems credible.
You don’t read good. 21.4% EXCLUDING immigration crime. Duh.
And 21.4% of them are illegal immigrants, so a vastly larger number than the illegal immigrant representation in the population.
And what are “immigration crimes”? Simply being an illegal immigrant is a misdemeanor, unless they have been previously deported. Even THOSE must be more serious.
So, you lose again, scooter. There is no WIN for illegal immigration but for the votes Democrats can get out of them and the cheap yard work lazy-ass liberals can get from them.
@Greg: Trump was using GOA numbers your knee jerk reaction is to call him a liar, take it up with the Government accountability office.
The liars you listen to, where are they getting their core math skills? Its strange you know what number Trump had quoted, from government accounting, I found it on a news site, who may have verified it with the GAO reports. you didnt bother to verify anything, not a thing just led down the merry path by your nose with fake news.
@Deplorable Me, #18:
My reading is fine. The comparison is faulty. That’s why I included the quote. The sentence is an example clever misdirection:
The word IF is telling an attentive reader that they have not been excluded. If they are excluded, suddenly the figure drops to 22.8 percent. As pointed out, this makes the resulting comparison with citizens meaningless, because the writer is including in the count a category of crimes that citizens can not have committed, by definition.
The writer also fails to mention that federal convictions include a high percentage of drug smuggling and money laundering crimes, which are often committed by foreigners who have not illegally entered the United States. Not all convicted non-citizen criminals are undocumented alien residents.
@Greg: You lost the argument and tried to deflect. Guatemalan mothers and children, their fates, and any and all statistics are moot because they are not US citizens, and we are talking about the protection of US citizens within the US border.
Every country on the planet has the right and duty to secure it’s borders and provide safety for it’s citizens, the US included.
While I believe it is good and right for the US to help the world, other countries, by sharing our incredible prosperity, it is NOT compulsory. That would make it communism and communism fails. Period.
@Greg: You still do not have the number of illegal aliens currently in prison for murder, so we must go with the older data of the GAO. Unless you can come up with better data 25,064 is what we have to go on. It isnt made up it isnt a fantasy it is just a portion of illegals the tax payer is spending 1.5 to 1.6 billion dollars every year to keep behind walls.
Accosta is still a EEEEEEEEEEEE diot
And where does THAT information come from? The same place Trump’s collusion comes from, your furtive imagination? The stats provide OVERWHELMING proof that, quite the opposite of the liberal propaganda, illegal immigrants commit crimes FAR in excess of their representation in the population… in which there should be NO representation whatsoever.
Illegal immigrants should not be here, so every crime they commit has been committed by those who let them in, keep them in and subsidize their being here. That, too, is an irrefutable fact.
Which is EXACTLY what him and his comrades want. Just like their predecessors, they’ll tell you that communism will work and the reason why it has failed is because, “It hasn’t been tried by the right people and this time it will be different”.
@Nathan Blue, #21:
Nobody denies it. The issue is whether border security requires 1,954 miles of impenetrable physical barrier. Trump has apparently backpedaled his unicycle on The Great Southern Wall—as well as on the promise that Mexico will pay for it, or anything—turning the proposition into an $8.7 billion blank check for who-knows-what. Congress has been reluctant to hand one over. For some reason they’re under the impression that they’re supposed to be in control of the purse strings.
@Greg: Yes, DEMOCRATS deny it. They want open borders, no immigration law enforcement, illegal immigrants caught for crimes released and the overburdened taxpayers to pay for their quest for illegal immigrants to vote for them.
You can keep on lowering your bucket into Trump’s bottomless well of stupid for however long you wish; I will continue to decline the offer of a drink. It’s all yours.
what kind of eeediot talks that way? Who even thinks that?
The physical barrier wont be impenetrable it will cut down the 1,574(this figure is an average not up for moronic debate) per day that are apprehended. There is much that also needs to be done to decrease the candyland prize they try to migrate to.
They fight tooth and nail on every deterrent so they dont have to legislate a better cure. Its both sides this is not a democrat exclusive resistance.
Its a tourniquet requested by border patrol. Just a part of whats needed, sensors, lighting some drones equipment at ports of entry to better catch elicit cargo. Just part of a system of border security.
Overcrowded facilities, Feb 13, 2019 · About 43 percent of those detained say they’ll try to cross again.
@Greg: Hell, you’re still bloated from gorging yourself on Obama’s lies.
And Democrats wanted to reduce the number of beds so illegal immigrant will have to be released and no wall to prevent those who simply return until they finally get through. And Greg wants us to believe they believe in border security.
What? No beautiful, 20-foot-tall wall that Mexico will pay for? This isn’t what the salesman showed us in the showroom!
It’s your classic bait and switch. There has never been a clear and consistent description of what Trump intends—which goes a long way toward explaining why the House of Representatives hasn’t been willing to hand over $8.7 billion dollars. I distinctly recall people asserting that spending on physical barriers where needed, electronic surveillance, increase border patrol personnel, and more vehicles allowing for rapid response wouldn’t get it.
Hard to get it done when Democrats want the open border and unrestricted illegal immigration. But, that’s what one faces when part of the government HATES the United States.
Fear not, there WILL be a wall. Hate lost.
@Greg: I remember hearing that a physical wall would solve the problems. The president has not been talking about a wall and anything else—just a wall.
The display model topped with steel sections used in oil pipelines are interesting. No doubt some industry lobbyist is behind that idea. We’ve got what look like welded-together steel drums on another.
@Greg: You’ve never built a mock-up, have you?
