FAKE NEWS MEDIA

The Hill Slimes Trump, Misleads With ‘Former Japanese Internment Camp’ Headline

The epitome of a fake news headline.


The Hill posted an intentionally misleading headline Wednesday, meant to stir division and garner clicks, which suggested that President Donald J. Trump was going to intern migrant children like president Franklin Delano Roosevelt did to the Japanese during World War II.

“JUST IN: Trump administration to send migrant children to former Japanese internment camp,” The Hill said on its Twitter account, linking to its story.



But when one clicks the link (which is surely the goal of the scare-mongering Tweet) there is much more to the story.

“The Health and Human Services Department, which operates the Office of Refugee Resettlement, said it was activating facilities at Fort Sill Army Base near Lawton, Okla., as a temporary emergency shelter for children detained at the border,” the report said.

So the Trump administration is using an operational Army base to shelter migrants, given that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facilities are full, and the other option – which also has been used – is to simply dump the migrantsin random southwestern towns.

The piece continues to explain that in 2014, president Barack H. Obama used the Army base for the same purpose.

“The site also was used as a shelter in 2014 under the Obama administration,” the piece said.

Trump is absolutely right. Fake news is the enemy of the people.

If we're going to warehouse detained border jumpers at a military base, then why the hell would they use a base inside the US ? We have bases all over the world... why not use Guantanimo, and then release them into Cuba pending their hearing ? Then I bet more than 10% would actually show up for the hearing.
