Critics immediately panned President Donald Trump’s prime-time speech pushing for a U.S.-Mexico border wall for its numerous lies and misrepresentations, even on the president’s favorite network.

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith challenged many of Trump’s claims by using the government’s own numbers.

After Trump said that “innocent people” are being “horribly victimized” by immigrants who commit crimes, Smith quickly added perspective.

“The government’s statistics show that there is less violent crime by the undocumented immigrant population than by the general population,” he said.

Trump also argued for his wall by saying that immigrants carry illegal drugs across the border, but Smith pointed out that a wall wouldn’t make much difference there.

“Government statistics show much of the heroin actually comes not over the unguarded border but through ports of call,” he said.

Smith continued:

“He talks about undocumented crossings over the past months. In fact, the number of undocumented crossings over the southern border has been steadily down over the last 10 years and the government reports that there is more outward traffic than inward traffic.”

Smith also pushed back on Trump’s claims that Mexico will pay for the wall via a revised trade deal.

Having failed to force Mexico to pay for a border wall as he promised he would, President Donald Trump on Friday repeated his false claim that a tweaked North American Free Trade Agreement is effectively making that country pay.

“We will be making billions and billions of dollars a year more money. And that is paying for the wall. Many, many times over,” Trump said in another rambling, hourlong news conference filled with such falsehoods.

“What we save on that just with Mexico will pay for the wall many times over just in a period of a year, two years, or three years. So I view that as, absolutely, Mexico is paying for the wall,” he claimed.

Outside economists and trade experts, however, said the revised NAFTA ― which Trump has rebranded as the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement ― will not bring into the U.S. Treasury anywhere near what is necessary to pay for a wall. Even more important: What extra money does come in will be from tariffs, which are paid by Americans, not Mexico.

“It’s not true,” said Monica de Bolle, a trade expert at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, of Trump’s claim. “What it really is is American consumers paying higher prices for stuff. So it’s the American consumer who’s paying for the wall, if you want to look at it that way. It’s just total crazyland, and it’s only going to get worse.”

do you really think no matter what kind of wall we put up along every square inch of our border it would stop everyone from being able to come into our country when more than half do not cross any unmarked port of entry or through the existing fencing we have in place?  why are you so stupid? here is the fencing, barriers already in place and in place for about a decade-

According to Democrats, thousands of undocumented foreigners storming the border throwing rocks at Border Patrol, millions of aliens living in the United States illegally; criminal aliens violently attacking, raping and murdering Americans is a manufactured crisis.
