Media Jumps All Over CBP And Chicago O’Hare Migrant Children Story

The media really can’t help themselves. Once again the CBP (Customs and Border Protection) is in the news. This time it involves three minor children who arrived at Chicago O’Hare yesterday. The media pounced on rumors and ended up with egg on their faces.

First, the story.

“Three children, all American citizens, were detained for several hours at Chicago O’Hare International Airport on Thursday after their adult companion was deemed “inadmissible” by U.S. authorities and their undocumented parents declined to pick them up out of fear of deportation.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection confirmed that the three children arrived at the airport with a female Mexican citizen that officers determined did not have a valid visa.”

Once the media got wind of the situation, they went into overdrive.

“U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials at O’Hare Airport released three American citizen children to their undocumented mother late Thursday afternoon. The children, all girls, ages 9, 10 and 13, had been held at the airport for more than 12 hours.

Immigration lawyers, a representative from the Mexican Consulate and a congresswoman from Illinois met with federal officials at different points throughout the afternoon arguing for the release of the children. In addition, several advocates gathered at the international terminal at O’Hare for hours rallying in support of the family.

After reuniting with her daughters, the girls’ mother told reporters that she was afraid that she would be deported if she came to airport. The girls had been held there since 3 a.m. when they arrived from Mexico with a cousin. The cousin was also detained and, ultimately, ordered to return to Mexico.”

Here’s the deal. Children arrive at our borders and airports every day who are either illegal or are children of illegals. These were MINOR children. If I were a parent, I’d want them to be in safe hands, wouldn’t you?

Unfortunately, by all reports, there was something wrong with the cousin’s VISA. Therefore what was CBP to do? Break the law and let the cousin just waltz out of the airport with the children and magically all will be well?

Evidently that’s what a bunch of folks wanted to happen. CBP couldn’t afford to and therefore didn’t take the chance that by doing so those childrens lives would be endangered. Given that the parents are here illegally, I can understand their fears. Yet the CPB let them come in to gather up their children and leave.  An excellent move on their parts.

But that didn’t matter to the media.

Once again for the media hovering in the cheap seats, the minor children were held until a GENUINE legal guardian AKA one of their PARENTS was able to get to the airport to pick them up. This was done for the children’s safety and not because of some heinous plot by Customs and Border Protection.

Did Joyce own up to her mistake? Nope.

Notice how Joyce keeps her original tweet and leaves a great deal of information out of her follow up. It’s all about the narrative and a radical agenda that doesn’t give a damn about those children or any other children who arrive at the border with or without their parents.

Speaking of narratives, Congresswoman Schakowsky jumped into the middle of the issue.

““I feel that it’s a kind of kidnapping of children by our government, and I’m really fed up with what we are doing,” Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) said. Schakowsky had been at O’Hare on Thursday afternoon and attempted to resolve the situation with CBP, according to the Tribune.”

Jan, you do know that people are going to run with your rhetoric and use it to paint the CBP as kidnappers right? Oh wait, of course you do. Again with the narrative!

The Democrats continue to make this a political issue to gain points. The Border Patrol is well aware of that.

They are trying their level best to help those who arrive at the border. Our border patrol agents are working 24/7 under incredibly trying circumstances to help those who arrive at our borders. They are doing so even as all the Democrats along with the media are painting all of them as evil incarnate.

Three minor children were watched over and taken care of by members of the Customs and Border Protection in order to ensure their safety. The media would rather engage in Fake News using those children to push their chosen narrative instead of applauding CPB for looking out for their best interests.

    And this is why we should immediately make clear the “birthright citizenship” issue, as requiring LEGAL and long-term presence on US soil at the moment of birth. Then they could have cleared this issue up by simply sending the kids back, too.

    And the mother absolutely should fear deportation. She’s a fugitive from the law.

    I hate what the left has done to our country and its laws.

      Agree SO MUCH!

    • Scott says:

      You nailed it exactly GWB. Birthright citizenship was never intended to be a suicide pact! This needs to be fixed, and now, and without anchor babies, there’s no question that illegal immigration would slow..
      And all these idiots stirring the pot need to be charged with inciting a riot, or something similar, they know they’re lying and don’t care, as long as it advanced their agenda. Until there’s a cost for doing that, they will continue.

    This was a very well planned incident and action to evade the immigration laws. This is how it works.
