The above misleading headline by the hyper-politicized mainstream media has been thoroughly exposed: Yes, an illegal immigrant was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers while stopped for gas en route to the hospital with his pregnant wife.
What was missing from the reporting was CONTEXT: This particular illegal immigrant was wanted for murder and his wife wasn’t in active labor or any stage of labor at all. Rather the couple was on their way to the hospital for a scheduled c-section.

Early reports, predictably, failed to include pivotal details.
The man ICE detained, Joel Arrona-Lara, is wanted for homicide in Mexico.
“Mr. Arrona-Lara was brought to ICE’s attention due to an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Mexico on homicide charges,” said ICE spokesperson Lori Haley, as reported in The Daily Caller and other outlets.
