Something Political: Trump's Lies

Trump Claim:

Trump Claim: Hillary Clinton Pledged To “Create Totally Open Borders For The United States.” According to NPR, “She’s pledged to grant mass amnesty and in her first 100 days, end virtually all immigration enforcement and [Depends on your definition of amnesty. From the Clinton website: ‘she will focus enforcement resources on detaining and deporting those individuals who pose a violent threat to public safety, and work to ensure refugees who seek asylum in the U.S. have a fair chance to tell their stories.’ —Tamara Keith] thus create totally open borders for the United States.” [NPR, 6/22/16]

Reality:

Associated Press Fact Check: “It’s Not True That Clinton’s Plan Would Create Open Borders.” According to the Associated Press, “THE FACTS: It’s not true that Clinton’s plan would create open borders. Her plan does call for a pathway to citizenship that would allow people currently in the country illegally to stay, but only after going through a series of steps to become a citizen. On enforcement, Clinton has called for focusing on ‘detaining and deporting those individuals who pose a violent threat to public safety,’ but not ending enforcement outright.” [Associated Press, 6/22/16]
