    Here's how this works....CNN reports Trump made up a statistic they don't like. Instead of checking up on the stat...they just say Trump made it up...i.e.....lied. When the guy who heads up Homeland Security tweets out not only was Trump right, he tells CNN all you had to do was ask, CNN ignores him. There is nowhere, citizens of this country can turn to get an honest report...on anything.


    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) responded Wednesday after CNN accused President Donald Trump of making up statistics about illegal immigration.

    Trump claimed during a meeting with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer this week that terrorists are illegally immigrating to the United States.

    “People are pouring into our country, including terrorists. We caught 10 terrorists over a short period of time,” Trump said.

    CNN anchor Jim Sciutto asserted multiple times that Trump was incorrect, writing, “DHS did not provide evidence of a single terrorist caught at the southern border over the very last short period of time as the president claimed.”

    You know they are making things up when they use a phrase such as this-

    “over the very last short period of time as the president claimed.”



    You just have to laugh. You just have to! Lol

    I heard BEFORE the Caravan arrived that border patrol had captured some terrorists, that had nothing to do with the Caravan people on the news... it might have been on FOX, but there was no details so I just thought it was President Trump just making up stuff like he usually does.... you know, lie, lie, lie..... or conflate one issue with another issue... no press conference from Homeland security about it with any kind of details....

    but I have also read that our Border Patrol has captured people that they believed were terrorists over the years, trying to cross the border.

    A very short period of time to the Washington Post is 10 seconds.

    Odd that they didn't note that virtually all of those potential terrorists were caught at normal points of entry. Airports, etc. Why no indication of how many, if any were stopped from walking across the desert?

    Nice tweet, but zero attempt to support Trump's claim that 10 terrorists were recently "caught" at the border.

    No of course not. The caravan folks are not terrorists. They are the communist political opposition of narco Prez Hernandez. He was more than glad to see them leave Honduras. Caravans organized by the Libre party with funding from Venezuela. Thus the demonstrations in Mexico City. The display of the Honduran flag.

    Thousands of radical communists relocating outside of a corrupt, narco state. Welcome to America comrades.

    Like ALL numbers from the Fed Govt -- they are all highly cooked and prepared and worthless to argue about. When most people think of terrorist, they hear Allahu Ahkbar. But to the border patrol, 80% of those "terrorists" are cartel employees and narco-terrorists.

    They be bad for sure. But it's hardly worth fighting about. IN FACT, the terrorist numbers apprehended are actually classified due to national security. So only "general accounting" for them at the border is EVER available.

    Got it. You are temporarily. abandoning an outrageous disproved claim for another outrageous disproved claim. How long before you go back to insisting terrorists are crossing our southern border? Tomorrow? Later this evening?
