If crossings are up, why aren't apprehensions up? Why isn't the known population up?

    Also, no one has a solid number on how many illegal aliens are in the country today.

    Besides, I never once said Illegal entires are up. That is something you just made up to move the goalposts. I say whatever the number is, it’s too high. When you say I’m claiming illegal crossing are up, that is a lie. A bald faced lie. I never said that. You are lying.

    If you you want to talk about misrepresenting facts, you did that. I originally said that 400K enter illegally each year. You said that “300k of them are apprehended”. That means you are claiming only 100K people enter illegally each year. You are claiming 300k out of 400k are apprehended. That is a claim which can not be supported factually.

    It does not contradict current information. What I said is current information. Trump himself has bragged about his policies lowering the number of crossings.

    The facts are CBP has caught fewer and fewer crossers over the last 18 years. Trump himself has seen 20% decrease in apprehensions.

    You did lie. You claimed that I said illegal entries are on the rise. I never said any such thing and you know it. Knowingly making a false claim is a

    I destroyed your argument. I destroyed it so effectively that you had to lie about my comments.

    In your opinion. However, to support that opinion what data have you reviewed? What inspections of the various points on the border have you inspected? What border patrol and local residents have you interviewed?

    Again to support your opinion. Or is it based on the "reporting" from reliable sources such as Mr. Acosta?
