The two deceased shooters in the San Bernardino shooting were Muslims Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik.  It appears—"sources say" that Tashfeen Malik was an immigrant from Pakistan. Now, it's a rule of the MSM that no immigrant ever does anything bad, especially in a headline. It leads to some extremely weird euphemisms.

Below, I pointed out that that they had instantly announced that Farook  was an American citizen, but than when an immigrant is the killer, the MSM finds euphemisms for immigrant, like "native of", or "came to America". I forgot "hailed from".  That's what appears in the screenshot above, from the LAT's continuing coverage.
