The Washington Post published a story about how the federal government has opted out of renewing passports of those living near the border — while conveniently leaving out until the ninth paragraph of the piece that this very same policy had taken place under both the Bush and Obama administrations.
Truly, the media does target this president and this White House.
President Donald Trump has no friend in the press.
From the Daily Caller:
The Washington Post published an article about the U.S. government choosing not to renew the passports of people born near the border, as they are skeptical that those people were actually born in the country. It’s not until the ninth paragraph that the article begins to address that the policy began under the Bush administration and continued under Obama.
The article was titled, “U.S. is denying passports to Americans along the border, throwing their citizenship into question” and was written by Kevin Sieff.
The article addressed the problems faced by “a growing number of people whose official birth records show they were born in the United States but who are now being denied passports.”
The fourth paragraph referenced President Trump, saying, “The Trump administration is accusing hundreds, and possibly thousands, of Hispanics along the border of using fraudulent birth certificates since they were babies, and it is undertaking a widespread crackdown.”
But five paragraphs later, the article clarifies, “The State Department during the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations denied passports to people who were delivered by midwives in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley.”
So in spite of the fact that this informal policy began under previous administrations, the article first connects it to President Donald Trump.
