[Ed. – Emphasis in original.]
For a story about a poll that shows only 13% of Americanswant the children in this recent flood of illegals to be allowed to stay in America, The Huffington Post wrote this headline: “Most Americans Believe Migrant Children Should Be Allowed To Remain In U.S., Poll Shows.”
Obviously, HuffPo didn’t like the results of the poll, but rather than simply ignore it, the left-wing outlet chose instead to lie about it: [emphasis added]
The poll, conducted on July 31-Aug. 5, found that 51 percent of Americans believe the unaccompanied children being detained at the U.S.-Mexico border should be allowed to remain in the country for some length of time.
That included 38 percent who thought the unaccompanied youngsters should be sheltered and cared for until it was deemed safe for them to return home.Thirteen percent said the children should be allowed to stay in the United States, while 32 percent said the children should be immediately deported.
The headline is not spin or left-wing opinion or partisanship on the part of the Huffington Post, it is a bald-faced, straight out, indefensible lie. …
Only 13% of those polled believe these illegal children should be allowed to remain in the US.
