The FB Post

Start with an image that invokes the hot issue of the day, the Southwest Border Immigration Issue.  It doesn’t matter that the photo is from a PolitiFact story Fact-checking claims on immigration and has nothing to do with your fake post.


Add an attention grabbing banner, tying it to the Immigration Issue using ‘detention officer’.

Texas detention officer charged with ‘super aggravated sexual assault’ of a 4-year-old girl after authorities say her mother, …

Link it to you site ( where you are running a story by Clark Mindock of the Independent ( where you continue:

an undocumented immigrant, was being blackmailed to stay silent about the abuse — or face deportation

The only problem is the story has nothing to do with the DHS Detention Facilities invoked by the photo.

It is a story about a Texas sheriff’s deputy, a detention officer at the jail,  who is believed to be related (father?) to the 4-year old.
