WND's Hohmann Finally Finds Middle Eastern Immigrants He Doesn't Want To Deport
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Leo Hohmann's main day job as a reporter for WorldNetDaily consists of demonizing Muslim refugees who want to come to the U.S., basically arguing that all Muslim refugees should be presumed to be terrorists. But Hohmann has finally found some Middle Eastern natives he doesn't want kicked out of the country. Hint: they're not Muslim.

Hohmann laments in a June 15 article:

More than 100 Iraqi Christians were rounded up Sunday evening in federal raids in Michigan and will soon be deported back to their native land, where they face an uncertain fate in a country where Christians are marked for death in a genocide carried out by ISIS and other Islamic groups.

The raids were conducted by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE. The ICE agents showed up without warning at the homes of Chaldean Christians and at a popular restaurant called Ishtar’s in Sterling Heights, Michigan.

Those detained were mostly legal residents of the U.S., some having spent the majority of their lives here, but have had felonies on their records.

Of course, many of the Muslim refugees Hohmann loves to demonize would also face the risk of death if they were sent back to their native countries, but he doesn't mention that -- he's too busy serving up sob stories about the Chaldean Christians aboiut to be deported.

Of particular ironic hilarity is Hohmann lamenting that President Trump won't deport the DREAMers -- people brought illegally as children into the U.S. who were subsequently raised here and have had little contact with their native country or language -- then quoting an activist effectively complaining  that the Chaldean Christians marked for deportation are being treated the way he wishes the DREAMers were:

Kalasho said dropping an Americanized Chaldean Christian into Baghdad is like putting a house-trained cat that has lived its entire life indoors out into the middle of the woods.

“What makes this so puzzling and frustrating is both the last administration and the current one have said these are people who are victims of genocide, but then they turn around and say that, although they are victims of genocide, they are perfectly able to survive if they get dropped off at an airport in Baghdad,” Kalisho said. “I don’t want to speculate on anything, but there are not many Christians currently in Baghdad. And many of these individuals being deported don’t know a lick of Arabic. Many proudly expose the cross. Many have tattoos of the cross or other Christian symbols, which will make them a clear target for someone who is a radicalized Muslim.”


“None of them had ever committed murder. None of them had ever raped anyone. But when ICE showed up, they had a crime on their record. They didn’t give them any information. They were picked up from their homes or from a restaurant and told they just wanted to ‘ask you a few questions.'”

If this treatment is bad and unfair to the Chaldeans, why isn't similarly unfair and bad for the DREAMers? Hohmann never brings that up.
