Citation Information

The original Breitbart post about DACA used a photo of a group of people, somewhat implying that they were DACA people. When it was pointed out that this was actually a photo from 2013 taken in El Salvador of the MS-13 gang involved in a truce to reduce crime, Breitbart replaced that photo with a stock image of someone being handcuffed. In order to demonstrate the original Breitbart post, it was necessary to recreate it by combining the Breitbart title and lead paragraph (which was not changed), with the original Breitbart photo that was preserved in a ThinkProgress story about the post.
