President Trump recently held a roundtable discussion with Hispanic pastors from all over the US. One of them, Pastor Ramiro Peña, presented Trump with a letter of support from 150 Hispanic Evangelical leaders and said this:
“One thing you have not done, Mr. President, is manufacture a humanitarian crisis. It's real and although many people began to declare repeatedly that this is a 'manufactured' crisis, being a pastor from Texas, I can tell you the human suffering that's been going on for many decades has hit a fever pitch, and I'm grateful that you have shown leadership to recognize it, to call it out and to actually do something about it.”
Miami Pastor Guillermo Maldonado said, “We’re here to support you, Mr. President. You know, there’s misconception in the public, thinking that our community is for illegal immigration. There’s a misconception also that we want open borders. And dealing with people every single day, I see that our community supports what you’re doing…That misconception that Spanish people want open borders, they want no laws, that’s not true. We’re here to support you, and what you’re doing is great. The lowest unemployment for Spanish people — 4 percent — that’s incredible. We pray for you.”
The Media Research Center notes that the Washington Times was one of the few media outlets that covered this event. Not a single national Spanish-language newscast covered it. Gee, I wonder why?
It appears that the Democrats still refuse to learn the lesson of Hillary Clinton’s loss in 2016: Just because your friends in the media refuse to cover your problems (Trump’s popularity, Hillary’s unlikability, her weakness in the Rust Belt, her ethical and security violations with her email server, etc.), that doesn’t mean they disappear. In fact, liberal media bias actually does a disservice to Democrats by leaving them misinformed, unprepared, overconfident and shocked when their chickens come home to roost.
