Geraldo Rivera may have sunk to a new low on his Sunday evening show “Geraldo at Large” on the Fox News Channel. The illegal immigration activist had a family on whose Haitian-born father, a man who once served 11 years in jail for a drug bust, is facing deportation.
Though he probably hasn’t known this family for more than several days, Geraldo questioned why this “hard-working daddy, who has done nothing but good in this country” may be deported. Since when did “nothing but good” include breaking the law to stay here and then getting busted for drugs? Geraldo then played the “what about the children, oh won’t someone think about the children” card.
About the children: No one ever bothers to point out that according to the law, parents who are being deported get to choose whether their children accompany them or not.
Rivera also attacked Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, and the most “hysterical voice in the bunch” Lou Dobbs for, uh, supporting the law.
Thanks to Randy for the tip.
