This tweet by a Sacramento Bee reporter about the killing of two young people in California got Michelle Malkin’s attention, particularly how the perpetrators of the murders are referenced.
The parents of two young people killed by immigrants are leading an effort to repeal California’s “sanctuary state” policy and criminalize officials who obstruct federal law, @TarynLuna reports. https://t.co/P962oH73vk

Not only is referring to them as “immigrants” faulty reporting, it is an affront to all of the legal immigrants who come to the United States and don’t commit violent crimes such as these.
If the sugarcoating of lawlessness continues, there will likely only be more horrific events that end up costing the lives of innocent young people.
