NBC and CNN omitted the fact that the suspected serial killer of at least a dozen elderly women in Texas is an illegal alien, with the former skipping coverage of the mass murderer altogether.
“Billy Chemirmir – a 46-year-old former healthcare worker – had already been charged with capital murder in March 2018 in the death of Lu Thi Harris, 81, but was indicted on Tuesday for 11 additional deaths: five in Collin County and six more in Dallas County,” the Daily Caller reported. “Court records show that Chemirmir – a citizen of Kenya living illegally in the United States – allegedly smothered his victims with a pillow and then robbed them …”
NBC, CNN staying true to their pro-immigration narrative
Both CNN and NBC have not indicated the illegal alien status of the killer, with the former passing up to story altogether.
“CNN so far has chosen not to cover the case, as was first noted on Twitter by The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra,” The Daily Caller’s Scott Morefield stressed, noting that Fox and ABC included Chemirmir’s illegal immigration status in their reports.
NBC, on the other hand, covered the story, but omitted key facts to remain consistent with its pro-immigration coverage.
“NBC has reported it but has made no mention of Chemirmir’s immigration status,” WND pointed out. “NBC identified him as ‘a Texas man.”
Of course, there was no mention by the leftist media hub that Chemirmir is also being charged for livng in the United States illegally.
Illegal status not important?
Democrats’ argument that asking a person’s immigration status is racist – going against their pro-immigration, open borders agenda – apparently did matter in Chemirmir’s instance, as the nursing home he worked for hired him as an employee … despite the fact he was an illegal alien.
“Chemirmir – a former health care worker – was indicted Tuesday on six additional counts of capital murder in Dallas County and five counts in Collin County,” the Dallas Morning News reported. “In each of the cases, he smothered his victim with a pillow and robbed her, according to court records.”
At least half of the illegal’s known victims were more than 90 years of age, including three from Dallas County, as listed by the Dallas daily:
- Phyllis Payne, 91, who died May 14, 2016, according to the indictment and her obituary
- Phoebe Perry, 94, who died June 5, 2016, according to a family obituary
- Norma French, 85, who died Oct. 8, 2016, according to the indictment and her obituary
- Doris Gleason, 92, who died Oct. 29, 2016, according to her family and the indictment
- Rosemary Curtis, 76, who died Jan. 19, 2018, according to her obituary
- Mary Brooks, 87, who died Jan. 31, 2018, according to the indictment and her obituary
The illegal from Kenya used his status as a health care provider to break down elderly women’s defenses, as described by Plano Police Chief Gregory W. Rushin.
“[The man uses his] health care experience to his advantage, targeting and exploiting seniors,” Rushin said at a press conference shortly after Chemirmir’s arrest, according to the Dallas Morning News. "This is terribly disturbing."
His brutal attacks did not just take place on health care facilities.
“According to an arrest affidavit, Chemirmir forced his way into the apartment of a 91-year-old Plano, Texas, woman, telling her to ‘go to bed. Don’t fight me,’” the paper revealed. “The attacker smothered the woman with a pillow into unconsciousness and robbed her. But paramedics revived her, and she reported a box of jewelry had been stolen. Police, identifying Chemirmir from a license plate number, tailed him and caught him throwing a jewelry box into a trash bin.”
And there could be many more victims, as officials continue to investigate the deaths of hundreds of more elderly women in the area.
“Authorities said at the time that they planned to review hundreds of unattended deaths of elderly women – including deaths that were previously ruled as resulting from natural causes – to determine whether they could be linked to Chemirmir,” the Dallas Morning News’ Dana Branham and Jennifer Emily recounted. “In 2016, Chemirmir pretended to be an employee at the Edgemere Retirement Community in Dallas, according to court records. He used the alias Benjamin Koitaba.”
When and if the suspected illegal alien is deported after the sentencing remains to be seen, but if he is incarcerated in Texas, it would cost taxpayers $17,340 a year, coming to $693,500 over 40 years, according to Death Penalty Information Center, which also noted taxpayers could shell out nearly a million to move forward with the death penalty in the state’s court system.
However, right now, it appears that Chemirmir will not murder any more elderly women while he remains in the U.S.
“Chemirmir's bail is now set at more than $9 million,” Branham and Emily informed.
