There was a serious claim that Immigration and Customs Enforcement threw a pregnant woman over a border wall so that she wouldn’t give birth to her baby on U.S. soil.
In late June 2018, as heated debate over immigration policies resulting in family separation remained a hot topic on social media platforms which saw the increased circulation of an alleged photograph of U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials hurling a pregnant woman over the border wall separating Mexico and the United States as you can see in the picture below.
ICE Agents threw Pregnant Immigrant Over Mexican Border in a bid to prevent Birth on U.S. Soil. The purported photograph and headline originated from a 22 January 2018 item published by ‘The Onion’ which had nothing other than these 2 parts (Picture and Headline).
The Onion is, obviously, a satirical website that was stemmed in newspaper form in 1988. However, the readers, on social media, should not trust The Onion‘s humorous topic as real news as the latter media didn’t vouch for its authenticity.
Likewise, the materials from The Onion, the photograph and claim about ICE agents and a pregnant woman were purely satirical and it is not real news.
