I don't usually hit MSNBC's website anymore but on occasion I do and today they have had this story as their lead story for about 5 hours now. It was posted msnbc.com / The Elkhart Truth updated 11:35 a.m. ET, Mon., June. 29, 2009 titled Immigrants fighting hard to stay in U.S. So I read this story and I am just dumb founded. They picture this guy with his baby and center the story around him and indentify him by name. He is quoted in the story "Us illegals, we don’t have unemployment," said Rodriguez, an undocumented immigrant from Mexico City. "If I had unemployment, I wouldn’t have had to give up the trailer."
So we call this guy who has broken the law, admits he is illegal, an undocumented immigrant and we are supposed to have some kind of compassion for him and his family because he lost his job and doesn't have unemployment? And they have this as their lead story on a day that is far from a "slow news day"! How about doing a story on this The Geography of Jobs!
Anyone want to guess how long it will be before he is visited by ICE? Yeah right.
