Castro and Patrick to debate immigration

Filed under: Media — Mike Kueber @ 4:26 am

According to the Huffington Post headline, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro has agreed to have an “immigration debate” with Republican Lt. Governor candidate Dan Patrick.  The article quotes Castro as calling Patrick the “most anti-immigrant Republican running for statewide office.”

Only those who read deep into the article will learn that Castro and Patrick will not be debating immigration policy, but rather will be focused on America’s problem with illegal immigration.  Because of its liberal bias, the media stubbornly insists on misrepresenting this issue.  Their characterization would be analogous to charging Republicans as being hostile to drinking just because they want better enforcement of the drunk-driving laws.

The best way to respond to this bias is to correct it.  Every time someone mentions immigration, they should be asked whether they are referring to legal immigration or illegal immigration.
