FAKE NEWS: Salon Claims Trump Letting ICE 'Deport Whoever They Want': The leftist news organization, Salon, continued to spread fear of mass deportations in an article on Monday mocking Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agents as “having ‘fun’ again, as Trump sets them free to deport whoever they want.”
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials have been fighting back against these forms of “fake news” reports that take some elements of truth while distorting other facts to drive an anti-Trump agenda. Despite efforts by DHS officials to set the record straight, Salon chose to continue fanning the flames of fear and hate.
“ICE agents and other federal cops are having ‘fun’ again, as Trump sets them free to deport whoever they want,” Salon’s Heather Digby Parton wrote. The headline states: “Trump takes the ‘shackles’ off: Mass deportations begin as the world looks on in outrage.”
