Re: “Job applicant facing deportation — Family says hospital, police collaborated in ruse to arrest woman,” Friday news story.
Please tell me Gabriela Martinez was joking when she accused Trinity Medical Center of not having morals because they helped apprehend an illegal alien.
Ms. Martinez’s mother used a fake Social Security card to apply for a job at a restaurant within the hospital and is, apparently, an illegal alien. Yet Ms. Martinez blames the hospital for helping deport her mother.
Worse yet, the headline writer seems to promote a similar opinion with his obvious bias. A far better headline would have been: “Hospital aids fight against illegal immigration by doing exactly what it should.”
