CBS Presses for Employers of Illegals to Be Separated from Families Too

Since the Immigration and Customs Enforcement workplace raid last week, the liberal media have grown increasingly radical in how they cover immigration. In a nearly five-minute-long report on CBS Evening News on Wednesday, special contributor Maria Elena Salinas (you might remember her from her time on Univision) delivered an emotionally drive, one-sided report condemning the raids and presses a U.S. attorney on jailing those who employed illegal immigrants.

Salinas began my tugging on the emotions of viewers by first speaking with a young girl whose father was arrested in an ICE raid at one the food processing plants in Mississippi last week:

MARIA ELENA SALINAS: It seems like a normal morning routine in a household full of kids.

ANGELA SORAC: My dad not being here is, like, very difficult.

SALINAS: But it's far from normal.

SORAC: Now that his dad is gone, he's now frustrated, aggressive. He's very angry, and we don't know how to handle it.

SALINAS: She's thrust into an adult role, but Angela Sorac is just a vulnerable 13-year-old.

SORAC: I still want my dad. I really do. He-- he was... He wasn't perfect, but I really did love him. And I still do. But I miss him.

A couple of minutes later, she highlighted a combative interview she conducted with the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Mississippi, Mike Hurst. In the interview she bitterly demanded to know why employers and managers weren’t taken into custody during the raids.
