In the wake of the tragic death of Kate Steinle, 62 percent of the public oppose sanctuary cities.
Newsbusters exposed the bias reporting by Telemundo on the sanctuary city issue.
Reporting on a recently released survey by Rasmussen Reports that indicates that 62% of Americans oppose sanctuary city policies, Telemundo, the nation’s second largest Spanish-language network, slanted its coverage in favor of maintaining the controversial policy. Reporting from the sanctuary city of Chicago, Telemundo correspondent Janet Rodríguez cited an unauthorized immigrant in favor of the policy, along with two quotes from Congressman Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL), who had the gall to minimize Kate Steinle’s murder, at the hands of a hardened criminal and five-time deportee, in the sanctuary city of San Francisco.
During the Telemundo interview Representative Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) described Steinle’s death as “a little thing.”
REP. LUIS GUTIERREZ: Every time a little thing like this happens, they use the most extreme example to say it must be eliminated.
Sure looks like Newbusters caught Gutiérrez minimizing Steinle’s tragic death to a Spanish speaking audience.
