Facts Matter!

With less than 100 days to go until midterm elections, President Trump is ramping up rhetoric over immigration and is now threatening a government shutdown if he doesn’t get money for his border wall. For Fact’s Sake, Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle will explain why a wall is not an effective way to crack down on undocumented immigration.
Here’s some facts direct from S Government
  • 563,000 apprehensions at border.
  • 83% stopped at border from illegally entering country.
  • That means about 95,000 got in.
But US Govt says there were 630,000 visa overstays! Holy Cow! That’s 66,000 more people in the country staying than those that were apprehended at border. And certainly more than actually got in at the border.
So should we “Build the Wall” or STOP THE VISAS?
Or does XENOPHOBIA and race blaming just go over better when TrumpBots scream “build that wall”?  Hum?
