CNSNews.com has frequently labeled supporters of comprehensive immigration reform as supporting "amnesty" without bothering to explain what that means. CNS has now taken that a step farther by tossing around the amnesty label without even bothering to link it to immigration reform.
An Oct. 21 CNS article by Penny Starr asserted that "Liberal, pro-amnesty advocates" oppose a Republican proposal to "ask all individuals whether they are citizens or lawful residents of the United States" and exclude illegal immigrants from being counted for purposes of congressional reapportionment.
While Starr lists several groups as being opposed to the amendment, at no point does she establish that the groups are "pro-amnesty" -- let alone liberal. Indeed, there's no mention of immigration reform, the usual conservative euphemism for "amnesty," anywhere in Starr's article.
