I think the core of the headline here is that the whole sordid situation was not handled as well as some might hope for, a woman was in distress, about to give birth, arrest the fugitive by all means, but at least spare some thought to ensure that the woman and her unborn child is safely arrived at the destination/s, she should not have been left is such a lurch. Thankfully she arrived safely and her child safely delivered too. They were not criminals. its just common sense.

Come to think of it, if this had ended any other way near tragically, it would have been more than a black eye for ICE

She had a cesarean appointment.  A doctor's appointment to have a baby not in labor.  The husband is wanted for murder.  Trying to verify news can be fun and enlightening.  Try it.

Or you could google it to view many different reports, from the various news sources, to form your own opinion.

Someone would have to be living in a cave not to have heard about this.

Read about it as the feed hit. I'm a news junkie and don't have cable but do have several right-left-middle and foreign news sites with notifications turned on. Saw the headline and instantly thought "Whoa, that's cold". I read a few articles off google and yahoo while seeing all their GD targeted ads and finally getting to the part at the end where they said "Oh yeah" he was a scumbag wanted for murder" But not all said that at first. It's a game but not one in which we get to play. We just get played. Oh and F google. DDG it.

Regardless, the woman was treated without consideration due to the circumstance that is disparaging to herself and her unborn child, try understanding what you verified, it can distance yourself from the hypocrisy that is practically dripping from your idea of fun

I think it was handled well. The Illegal immigrant murder suspect was arrested caught off guard at a gas station. You know rather than say having an armed standoff at their home where he might have held his pregnant GF as a hostage and before they arrived at the Hospital where there would have been hundreds of potential hostages if the guy wanted to go down fighting. As for the pregnant woman it was an appointment for a C-section. At worst she could have simply rescheduled the C-Section for the next day. She obviously was not in any distress or a freakin ambulance could have been called if that were the case, but she was fine and simply drove on to the appointment.

Matey, we’re talking about American Police here. She’s lucky they didn’t shoot her because she scared them.

So all murderers who happen to get someone pregnant should be able to roam free? Should she have given birth while her husband is in handcuffs and armed guards are watching? I think that would be even more stressful.

You are operating on a biased premise bent of a set of predetermined outcome, it could have been handled better doesn't hurt anybody, presenting flimsy excuses is worse for PR especially ICE

Umm... I fail to see how what I said was a case of “post hoc, ergo propter hoc”. It was more a case of a fortiori.

In other words, no answer...that's fine, you are backed into a corner. I notice you didn't answer anyone else either. Again, no good situation here and not all actions and facts are known.

I'm curious as to what you think they should have done....follow them to the hospital and arrest him a ) in the parking lot, b ) in the delivery room, c ) right after the baby is born d ) arrest him at home in front of his other 4 children.

This guy is a known murderer...it's conceivable he carried a weapon on him. At home he could use his children as hostages. In the hospital he could use staff or even his newborn baby. 

Should they just let him go?

Third Eye doesn't have an answer.   All he thinks he knows is that ICE is evil and they tried to put a pregnant woman in jeopardy. 

He's trolling.   Very poorly, but trolling.

Well, ICE do have a reputation for pursuing illegal aliens vigorously. I mean... they're even on the moon, according to this article ?

No, you should read without your heavily biased shades on the little details ...

Post hoc ergo propter hoc (Latin: "after this, therefore because of this") is a logical fallacythat states "Since event Y followed event X, event Y must have been caused by event X.

there were no consequential thinking involved in my comment “she was lucky, she could have been shot!” Therefore it wasn’t a logical fallacy. More a rhetorical gambit akin to “reducto ad absurdium” wherein I adopt an absurd extreme in order to end a debate.

I don't know Third_eye. you posted that ICE's actions "disparaged the woman and her child". When I asked you to explain this, you went off accusing me of posting a non-sequitur ?

We are at the stage where people fall for inflammatory headlines. I am one now to be more suspicious than believing of the image presented in the headlines. A headline like that immediately produces a suspicion of left-wing bias in me given my overall impression of the place of today's media on the immigration issue.

An evil Trump-led ICE is the image that sells best right now.

Hmm very interesting

If you were intending to 'debate' as you so intrinsically claim as such, you would have known that the hardliners vehement demands that was to be no debating allowed, which in effect establishes the fact that debating anything here was the last thing that is accommodating to your nefarious intentions.

Those who support border restrictions/enforcement won't be bothered by this non-story.  We're used to being called all sorts of vile names because of our stance.  That's the problem that those on the hard Left have... after a while, the hype becomes hysteria, then just boring repetition.  Neither the woman nor her 5th child was harmed.  My guess is that its murderer-father might have a problem if he's extradited back to Mehico...

Its as if someone is begging, loudly and persuasively, to be put on your ignore list. 

Trust me, its best if you do. It helps filter out the white noise.

That is the bottom line.   In fact, they were removed from the presence of an illegal and a murderer.
