[RETRACTED] Previously Deported Illegal Rapes Child After Sanctuary City Releases Him from Prison
RETRACTION, Mar. 2, 2019: This article was first published under the headline, "Dems Have Blood on Their Hands: Illegal Rapes Child After Sanctuary City Releases Him From Prison." The phrase "blood on their hands" indicated that city leaders were responsible for someone's death. It also implied that Juan Ramon-Vasquez, who has been convicted of both rape and illegal re-entry into the U.S., was guilty of murder. Though we have no wish to diminish the heinousness of the crimes of which Ramon-Vasquez was found guilty, neither do we wish to imply that he is guilty of anything further. In addition, the phrasing in the early part of this article implied that the repeated rapes Ramon-Vasquez committed had occurred recently. They appear to have been committed in 2014 or 2015. Finally, the administration of the current mayor of Philadelphia was tacitly blamed for the release of Ramon-Vasquez, when in fact it was the administration of the former mayor that was responsible for it. We apologize to Juan Ramon-Vasquez, the Democratic leadership of Philadelphia, Mayor Jim Kenney, and our readers for the inaccuracies in this article. Given how pervasive those inaccuracies were, The Western Journal decided to retract the article rather than correct it.

Lawmakers Scrambling After Simple Error Could Turn Millions of Gun Owners into Law Breakers
CORRECTION, Feb. 25, 2019: The Western Journal quoted an article from WHIO that stated that federal law defined a "short-barreled" shotgun as a shotgun with a barrel of under 16 inches. In fact, the definition is of a shotgun with a barrel of under 18 inches or an overall length of under 26 inches. We have added an editor's note to the article following the incorrect statement, and apologize for any confusion the misinformation may have caused.

New Section of Wall Completed Whopping 47 Days Ahead of Schedule & Trump Has the Video
CORRECTION: Feb. 25, 2019: The headline of this article, "New Section of Wall Completed Whopping 47 Days Ahead of Schedule & Trump Has the Video," seemed to imply that a wall had been built along a section of border where no barrier had existed before. That implication is incorrect, and our article did little to clarify the matter, essentially taking President Trump's tweet as our only source, in violation of The Western Journal's Editorial Standards. We have added additional clarifying information to the article, and apologize for any confusion we may have caused.

Adam Schiff Gets Vocabulary Lesson from Trey Gowdy After Bringing Up ‘Collusion’ Again
CORRECTION, Feb. 22, 2019: This article was originally published under the headline, "Gowdy Gives Schiff Grammar Lesson After Bringing Up 'Collusion' Again." The construction of the headline implied that former U.S. Rep. Gowdy brought up collusion "again," but in reality, it was Rep. Schiff who did so. Because the change, while important for accuracy, did not materially affect the sense of the headline, The Western Journal will not re-post this article on social media as we often do with headline changes. We have corrected the headline and apologize to Trey Gowdy and our readers for any confusion we may have caused.

Kamala Didn’t Get Memo, Signs On to Green New Deal as AOC’s Staff Removes FAQ Page from Official Website
CORRECTION, Feb. 9, 2019: This article was published under the headline "Kamala Didn't Get Memo, Signs Onto Green New Deal as Humiliated AOC Removes It from Website." While the article itself was accurate, the headline stated that Rep. Ocasio-Ortez's staff had removed the Green New Deal from her website, when in fact what had been removed was the FAQ document that attempted to explain the proposal. We therefore corrected the headline early Saturday morning. We apologize for our error and for any confusion we may have caused.

Melania Trump Makes Fashion Statement at SOTU, Angers Leftists
CORRECTION, Feb. 7, 2019: This article, taking its lead from the tweets embedded and from fashion writers -- including a writer for WWD who interviewed the first lady's stylist and described the dress as black -- described the dress that way. However, when compared to the clothing of others standing with Melania Trump who were wearing black, it is clear that her dress was a very dark navy blue. In addition, on Feb. 7, WWD.com published an interview with Trump's stylist, Hervé Pierre, who indicated that the first lady's dress wardrobe choice was not intended to send a political message, despite The Western Journal's implications otherwise, and had in fact been chosen "a while ago." We have added that information to the article. We have corrected the description of the dress in our article and apologize for the error and any confusion we may have caused.

SJWs Furious Adam Levine Double-Crossed Them at Halftime Show
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article referred to former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick as an "interception machine." In fact, Kaepernick has the second-lowest interception percentage in living memory, tied for second place with New England QB Tom Brady at 1.8 percent and just behind Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers at 1.5 percent. We also wrote that Kaepernick "went 3-16 as a starter during the end of his tenure with the San Francisco 49ers," and have clarified that to indicate that those statistics are for his 19 starts in the 2015 and 2016 seasons. We apologize to Colin Kaepernick and to our readers for our failure to fact check the first statement and the lack of clarity on the second.
