WND Puts Words In Holder's Mouth
Topic: WorldNetDaily

The headline on John Bennett's April 25 WorldNetDaily article reads, "Holder: Amnesty is a 'civil right.'"

But that's not what Holder said -- at no point does Bennett quote Holder using the word "amnesty." Bennett does accurately quote Holder discussing "a mechanism for [illegal immigrants] to earn citizenship."

Nevertheless, Bennett repeatedly describes proposal for immigration reform as "amnesty." But that's inaccurate as well. As Sen. Marco Rubio has pointed out, his "Gang of 8" reform plan is not amnesty because "Amnesty is the forgiveness of something" and his plan would require illegal immigrants to pay back taxes, a fine and an application fee as well as having a job and waiting for at least 10 years.
