CNS Again Baselessly Asserts 'Amnesty'

A Nov. 13 article by Penny Starr carries the headline, "Napolitano Announces Obama Administration Plan to Give Amnesty to Illegal Aliens." But not only does the article fail to define "amnesty" -- as CNS frequently fails to do -- the word "amnesty" appears nowhere in the article.

Starr goes on to selectively quote Napolitano in her first paragraph, stating that the Obama administration favors a "fair pathway to earned legal status." This is immediately followed by Napolitano's full quote: "A tough and fair pathway to earned legal status will mandate that illegal immigrants meet a number of requirements—including registering, paying a fine, passing a criminal background check, fully paying all taxes and learning English." As noted above, no explanation is given as to how this could be considered "amnesty."
