Left-winger Linda Ellerbee is having a field day at children’s network Nickelodeon. First, anti-war propaganda. (More here.) And now, open-borders propaganda (via Lonewacko):

I’M AMERICAN! THEY’RE NOT! Sunday at 9 p.m. Nickelodeon.

Paola is 13. Her sister, Vanessa, is 14. Their brother, Nahum, is 17. They live in a comfortable house in Roswell, N.M.

One morning, they heard a commotion downstairs and found agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) putting their father in handcuffs – the first step toward deporting both parents to their native Mexico.

This story is one of several Linda Ellerbee uses Sunday night in a “Nick News” special to illuminate a troubling consequence of our ongoing response to the complex issue of immigration.

Anyone born in the U.S. is a U.S. citizen, even if his or her parents are not. So if a family stays after a child is born, it’s possible the parents could be subject to deportation while the child is not.

An estimated 3 million children are now in that situation. Any morning, they could wake up to hear their parents being deported.

And then what do they do?

Ellerbee claims she’s not taking sides:

Ellerbee starts the show by stressing that she’s not taking sides in the larger immigration debate, just reminding us of its impact on children.

She visits three families – two where the parents were deported, one where the parents are still here and the children do their homework by flashlight to minimize any attention they might attract.

If she really weren’t taking sides, we’d see a fair and balanced look at families and children whose lives have been torn apart by the bloody consequences of lax immigration enforcement.

Maybe Ellerbee would like to illuminate Nickelodeon’s audience about the Cottonwood school bus tragedy, for example.
