These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward liberal causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage liberal causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Left Bias sources.
- Overall, we rate America’s Voice Left Biased based on advocacy for immigration measures opposed by the right. We also rate them Mostly Factual, rather than High due to the infrequent use of poor sources.
Factual Reporting: MOSTLY FACTUAL
World Press Freedom Rank: USA 45/180
Founded in 2008 by Frank Sherry, America’s Voice is a pro-immigration reform group based in the USA. Frank Sherry has “helped win relief for Central American and Haitian refugees, protected family reunification, and promoted a comprehensive overhaul of the nation’s immigration system that would simultaneously reduce illegal immigration through smart enforcement, provide a path to legal status and citizenship to undocumented immigrants in the U.S., and reform the legal immigration system.”

Analysis / Bias
In review, America’s Voice advocates for immigrants and liberal reform to the immigration system. For example, they advocate for amnesty such as this The Memo: Trump’s immigration hawks grapple with new court blow. When reporting on the Trump Administration there is the use of loaded wording such as this: Trump’s Normalizing of Corruption and Lawlessness Continues at the Border. This story is properly sourced to both the left-leaning Washington Post and the right-leaning Wall Street Journal. A thorough overview of dozens of articles indicates that story selection almost always favors the left. In general, America’s Voice is factual and well-sourced with a left-leaning mission of easier immigration and protection for refugees.
