Libs Freak Over Illegal Arrested Driving Prego Wife To Hospital, Didn’t Mention Sick Person He Is

Published

on

Another day, another freakout by liberals over a fake news story. This time it again has to do with an illegal alien and if you just went by the headlines in the mainstream media, you’d think that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was the evilest and most heartless outfit on the face of the earth. But once again, facts are left out and not reported accurately at all. Oh, how I long for real journalism that just reports what’s going on these days.

The illegal alien in question was in southern California (of course). He was arrested while transporting his pregnant wife to the hospital. ICE detained him when he stopped to get gas. But before you believe the left’s crocodile tears, this guy is wanted for murder in Mexico according to immigration authorities. Joel Arrona Lara, who is 36, was detained by ICE officers on Wednesday at a gas station in San Bernardino, California. His wife, Maria del Carmen Venegas, was scheduled for a cesarean section and that is why Arrona Lara was rushing her to the hospital.

I guess the media just overlooked the fact the guy was wanted for murder. Too bad for them that news of this guy’s arrest and the subsequent spin by the media spread far and wide and did so quickly. Several media outlets had the nerve to characterize it as an example of the Trump administration’s heavy-handed crackdown on illegal immigration. Venegas told CBS 2 in Spanish that Arrona Lara had never been stopped by police and didn’t have a criminal record of any kind, including traffic violations. She lied. Imagine that. “He had to wait for his son for so long, and someone just took him away,” she said.

“Mr. Arrona-Lara was brought to ICE’s attention due to an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Mexico on homicide charges,” ICE spokeswoman Lori Haley told The Daily Caller News Foundation. There’s also security footage from the gas station that shows him getting out of his car and then being arrested by ICE officers. A very upset Venegas then used her phone as her hubby was carted away.

Arrona Lara’s lawyer, Emilio Amaya Garcia, accused ICE officers of endangering Venegas and her unborn baby. “In this case, not only did they put the life of the mother in danger but also that of the child, who is a citizen of this country,” he told Univision on Thursday. Excuse me… what about the person he allegedly murdered? That is the ultimate endangerment if you ask me. And I highly doubt that the wife or the child was in danger because this was a scheduled cesarean section, not an emergency one.

Arrona Lara has allegedly been living illegally in the U.S. for 12 years. ICE released the following statement concerning his arrest:

“Mr. Arrona-Lara, a citizen of Mexico illegally residing in the United States, was taken into custody Wednesday by ICE Fugitive Operations Team officers in San Bernardino, Calif. Mr. Arrona-Lara is currently in ICE custody pending removal proceedings with the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR).”

“ICE continues to focus its enforcement resources on individuals who pose a threat to national security, public safety, and border security. ICE conducts targeted immigration enforcement in compliance with federal law and agency policy. However, ICE will no longer exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement. All of those in violation of the immigration laws may be subject to immigration arrest, detention and, if found removable by final order, removal from the United States.”

Many of these mainstream media outlets ran with misleading headlines, to say the least. They painted a picture of brutality and inhumanity as the left is currently trying to demonize and abolish ICE. Many publications didn’t even include the fact Arrona-Lara was a homicide suspect in their reports. How do you leave out that fact and even call yourself a media outlet?

The Daily Wire has a nice roundup of misleading media headlines:

The Washington Post: “ICE arrested a man driving his pregnant wife to give birth. She drove herself to the hospital.”

The Sacramento Bee: “They were on their way to the hospital to have a baby when ICE took him away”

CBS News: “ICE detains man driving pregnant wife to hospital to deliver baby”

TIME: “ICE Agents Detained a Man Driving His Pregnant Wife to the Hospital”

Slate: “ICE Officers Arrest Man Who Was Driving Pregnant Wife to Hospital for C-Section”

NY Mag: “ICE Arrests Husband Who Was Taking Wife to Give Birth at Hospital”

Newsweek: “Ice Agents, Part Of Trump Crackdown, Detain Husband Driving Pregnant Wife To Deliver Baby'”

Fair and balanced they are not. NBC News was one of the few to get the reporting right on this, if you can believe it. They reported that ICE specifically noted that Arrona Lara was arrested because of an “outstanding warrant issued for his arrest in Mexico on homicide charges.”

The irony of all this is not lost on me. The timing of the media’s latest deception to demonize the Trump administration for political gain comes just two days after more than 400 newspapers wrote op-eds decrying President Trump’s attacks on the media for inaccurately covering news stories and for sometimes reporting blatantly false information. Yeah… about that… see above.

HOLY HELL! Hundreds of Thousands Of Florida Voters May Not Even Be Citizens

Published

* By

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida officials are now saying that nearly 200,000 voters may not be U.S. citizens.

Earlier in the week, state election officials announced they had identified more than 2,600 people who are in Florida legally but ineligible to vote.

The Department of State is asking county election officials to verify the information. Election supervisors are contacting voters and if someone is not a citizen, their name will be dropped from the voter rolls.

But an initial list drawn up by the state — and not widely released — shows that a comparison of voter lists and driver’s license information turned up a list of nearly 182,000 people who may not be U.S. citizens.

State officials, however, note that some of those on list may now be citizens.

Women Busted For Election Fraud In Miami-Dade

Published

* By

We’re supposed to be the model for the world to follow and yet these liberals are doing everything in their power to corrupt the system. This happened in 2016, but is very much relevant right now. The Miami Herald reported on it further: 

A 74-year-old woman tasked with opening envelopes sent by Miami-Dade County voters with their completed mail ballots was arrested Friday after co-workers caught her illegally marking ballots, resulting in an unknown — but small — number of fraudulent votes being cast for mayoral candidate Raquel Regalado.

Investigators linked Gladys Coego, a temporary worker for the county elections department, to two fraudulent votes, but they suspect from witness testimony that she submitted several more.

Coego, of Westchester, turned herself in to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on Friday morning. She was charged with two felony counts of marking another person’s ballot. Coego was released after posting a $10,000 bond.

In a separate election-fraud case, authorities also arrested a second woman Friday on charges of unlawfully filling out voter-registration forms on behalf of United for Care, the campaign to legalize medical marijuana in Florida.

The Miami-Dade state attorney’s office accused Tomika Curgil, 33, of filling out forms for five people without their consent. She also submitted at least 15 forms for people who apparently don’t exist — and several forms for people who are dead.

Police officers arrested Curgil at her Liberty City home Friday morning and charged her with five felony counts of submitting false voter-registration information. Her bond was set at $125,000.

“Our law enforcement effort against these election law violators was swift and resulted in an immediate arrest of the wrongdoers,” Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernández Rundle, a Democrat, said in a statement. “The elections department was quick to detect and report these violations to our task force.

“Anyone who attempts to undermine the democratic process should recognize that there is an enforcement partnership between the elections department and our prosecution task force in place to thwart such efforts and arrest those involved. Now we need to move forward with the election.”

Gladys Coego, left, and Tomika Curgil, were arrested Friday.

The cases were investigated by her office’s public corruption task force, which comprises police officers from several jurisdictions, including Miami-Dade, Miami, Miami Beach, Doral and the Miami-Dade school district. The task force is headed by prosecutor Tim VanderGiesen.

The arrests come as Republican Donald Trump has claimed the presidential election is “rigged” to favor Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. There is no evidence of the widespread, systematic election fraud that would be required to swing a national election, though the Miami-Dade arrests show small, isolated cases of perpetrated or attempted fraud exist.

Coego’s job was to remove mail ballots from envelopes, count the number of pages and check for any tears or stains before someone else introduced them into an optical scanner to tabulate the votes. Miami-Dade started tallying mail ballots Monday, as allowed by Florida law.

According to Coego’s arrest affidavit, she sat by herself behind a back table in a room with about 80 other workers. Another temp worker, identified as “S. Tremmel,” saw her illicitly mark three ballots Tuesday, pulling a black pen out of her purse each time. She “would hide the pen in her purse whenever a supervisor or other employee came near,” Tremmel told investigators.

At first, Tremmel said he was unsure of what he had seen, but after the third time, he reported Coego to Javier Vazquez, an elections computer technician, who in turn contacted a supervisor, Tabulation Manager LaRhonda Wimberly. She covertly watched Coego and “after only a short time, she observed Coego take a black pen from her purse and begin to mark a ballot.” Wimberly confronted Coego, confiscated the ballot and escorted Coego out of the room.

The confiscated ballot had been filled with blue ink — except for a single mark in black for Regalado for mayor. Deputy Elections Director Rosy Pastrana examined all the ballots that had been in Coego’s possession since Monday and found an unspecified number “that appeared to have been altered” because only the Regalado bubble had been filled out in black.

Coego admitted what she had done, but what she actually said has been redacted from the affidavit. She denied any connection to Regalado, and Regalado denied any connection to her.

“I don’t know this person. It has nothing to do with me,” Regalado told the Miami Herald shortly after news of the arrests broke. Regalado said she had learned of the busts Friday morning. “We’ve looked into it. The police have looked into it. There are no ties.”

A man who answered Coego’s door Friday morning and identified himself as her son-in-law would not give his name. He described Coego as a grandmother. “I don’t have anything else to say,” he said, asking for privacy.

Coego does not appear to have contributed to or been paid by any Miami-Dade or Florida candidate, according to county and state campaign-finance records. She is registered without party affiliation.

Regalado, a Republican, is running for the nonpartisan mayor’s post against incumbent Carlos Gimenez, who is also a Republican. As strong mayor, Gimenez appointed Elections Supervisor Christina White and is ultimately in charge of her department.

Since Tuesday, White said she has added more supervisors and more security guards to monitor the ballot-opening. Workers who had previously been banned from putting personal items on the table with the ballots will no longer be able to keep any personal items within reach.

“I want our voters to remain confident because our procedures clearly work,” White said. “The safeguards that we have in place to patch these things have proven successful. They should remain confident that their vote is going to count as they intended.”

On Thursday, Regalado sued to boot Gimenez off the ballot, contending he should be disqualified because he initially wrote the wrong date on his candidate-qualifying check. She said Friday that the arrests were further evidence that Gimenez has done a poor job overseeing the elections department, which she contends is plagued by irregularities.

Gimenez scoffed at the suggestion, saying the elections department and public corruption unit made “a great catch.”

“I’m happy that they did catch it, and that these two individuals will be brought to justice,” he said. Because he is a candidate, Gimenez said he is leaving any additional controls to White and Deputy Mayor Alina Hudak.

He added that he is not worried about the election result.

“We think that she confessed to bubbling in Raquel Regalado on five ballots that were under-voted,” Gimenez said. “I don’t believe that’s going to have much of an effect on the race.”

A recent poll showed Gimenez beating Regalado, a sitting Miami-Dade school board member and the daughter of Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado, by 22 percentage points.

In the second fraud case, Curgil ostensibly registered voters for People United for Medical Marijuana, the political committee financing the “Yes” campaign for Amendment 2. On Oct. 12, according to Curgil’s arrest affidavit, the elections department flagged one of Curgil’s batches of forms as suspicious because all the registrations appeared to have been filled out and signed by the same person.

“In some cases we were seeing that these people were already in the system but had a status of ‘deceased,’” White said.

The fraudulent forms had been initialed “TC.”

Investigators placed Curgil, a Democrat, under surveillance on Oct. 18, the last day to register. After dropping off her kids at school, Curgil stayed home all day. Investigators didn’t see her sign anyone up, though they did see her twice turn over forms to two other women working for the campaign. One of them, Jennifer Jean, the campaign’s deputy regional manager, dropped off the forms at the elections department.

Curgil had initialed 22 of the forms. Seven contained the names of real people. The names on the remaining 15 appeared to have been invented.

Investigators reached five of the seven real people listed. None had any idea the forms had been submitted on their behalf. Four of them were already registered. One was a felon barred from voting.

On Wednesday, investigators confronted Curgil. She confirmed the applications had come from her, but said she didn’t remember working Oct. 18. The affidavit shows she “admitted” to something, but those details have been redacted.

“Curgil denied signing the voter registration applications in question in the signature box designated to be signed by the applicant,” the affidavit says.

A man who answered the door at Curgil’s maroon-and-beige stucco home in Liberty City said her family wouldn’t discuss her arrest.

Like Coego, Curgil’s name does not appear as a contributor or payee on county or state campaign-finance databases.

The medical-marijuana campaign paid canvassers by the hour, not by the form, campaign manager Ben Pollara said, but workers were expected to meet certain targets to be hired week after week.

“We’ve submitted a little more than 15,000 forms that we believe to be good voter registrations” across the state, Pollara said. “Then we submitted another few thousand voided that we believed not to be good but that we were legally obligated to submit.”

Florida law requires forms to be turned in once they’ve been filled out, even if campaigns suspect the information to be wrong. Some marijuana campaign canvassers were fired for submitting bad forms, according to Pollara, who added the campaign reached out to prosecutors Friday to offer any needed cooperation.

Every time people return VRs to their managers, there’s a process in place where the managers would check them for having similar handwriting or signatures, would check them against the existing voter file,” he said. “But some bad ones slip through the cracks.”
