Ouch! DHS Obliterates #FakeNews CNN on Their Bizarre Segment Downplaying Terrorists at the US-Mexico Border
On Tuesday, during their contentious “discussion” inside the White House, President Trump told open-border Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer that DHS recently arrested “10 terrorists” at the US border.
Democrats do not want to protect the US with a border wall. Pelosi says it’s immoral and she will keep government closed forever rather than fund a border wall barrier with Mexico.
Following the White House blowout — CNN jumped in to attack President Trump.
CNN reporter Jim Sciutto claimed President Trump has twice used the threat of terrorism to justify the wall. Sciutto then added, “Facts supplied by DHS don’t back that up.”
CNN is REALLY pushing for an open border!
The president has now twice used the threat of terrorism to justify the wall. Facts supplied by DHS don’t back that up. https://t.co/N3XDabBPRO

Pres. Trump said yesterday "10 terrorists" have been caught at the border. @jimsciutto's fact check: “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” https://t.co/a1nCtEFR3s pic.twitter.com/O0Jh9JVDld

That’s when DHS jumped in to drop a truth-bomb on CNN and Jim Sciutto. DHS prevented “3,755 known or suspected terrorists” from entering the US in 2017.
This had to hurt!
We are happy to provide the facts — but you never reached out. In fact, DHS prevented 3,755 known or suspected terrorists from traveling to or entering the U.S. in FY 17. That's in addition to 17,526 criminals, 1,019 gang members, and 3,028 special interest aliens. #FactsFirst https://t.co/4naI8XOg9x
