Selective Reporting?

| 1 Comment
A man was arrested in Florida Wednesday for the rape and murder of a 33-year-old Chicago woman last Sunday.  The Chicago Tribune reported that the suspect, Bulmaro Mejia-Maya, is a construction worker who lived near the victim, Tiffany Thrasher.  No mention of the suspect's immigration status in the Trib.  But fortunately, in their story for Chicago's ABC7 John Garcia and Stacy Baca added that Mejia-Maya was a Mexican citizen and that ICE had issued a detainer on him, but that his immigration status was unclear.  They noted that he was wanted on drug charges in Utah and that he had pled guilty in 2013 to a battery in Florida. Probably just a pot bust in Utah and a Florida bar fight right?  You have to go to the Daily Caller to learn that the drug charge against Mejia-Maya was for cocaine and that in Florida he was initially charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon after he stabbed a man.  Instead of pleading guilty to felony charges, which would have triggered the revocation of his green card, Meija-Maya was allowed to plead guilty to misdemeanor battery and sentenced to 117 days.  Like San Francisco, Chicago is a sanctuary city.  If it  turns out that Mejia-Maya was in the U.S. illegally on a revoked green card and avoided deportation because of the Chicago's pro-illegal policy, where do you suppose it will be reported?

The murder happened in Schaumburg, not Chicago, but it is emblematic of the Democrats' utter disregard for the safety of Americans.
