White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders sat down with Fox News' Chris Wallace on Sunday to discuss the government shutdown and the status of negotiation talks. During the interview, Wallace blatantly asked Sanders how she knows terrorists are entering the United States through our southern border.
"Let's talk about the wall, because there is no question that there has been a big spike in the number of family units coming across the border. The president talks about terrorists potentially coming across the border and here is Secretary Homeland Security Nielsen. Take a look," Wallace said, going to a clip of Nielsen.
In the clip Nielsen said Customs and Border Protection has stopped around 300 Special Interest Aliens (SIAs) from coming to the United States through the southern border.
"Those are aliens who the intel community has identified as a concern," Nielsen said in the clip.
"But Special Interest Aliens are just people who come from countries that have ever produced a terrorist, not terrorists themselves and the State Department says, in their own words 'no credible evidence of any terrorist coming across the border from Mexico,'" Wallace said in reaction to Nielsen's comments.
We know that, roughly, nearly 4,000 known or suspected terrorists come into our country illegallyand we know that our most vulnerable point of entry is at our southern border, Sanders responded.
"Wait, wait, wait, " Wallace interrupted. "I know this statistic and wasn't sure if you were going to use it but I studied up on this. Do you know where those 4,000 people come, where they're captured? Airports."
"Not always, but certainly a large number," Sanders said.
"Airports. The State Department says there hasn't been any terrorists that they've found coming across the southern border," Wallace interrupted again.
"It's by air. It's by land. It's by sea," Sanders replied. "It's all of the above. But the one thing that you're forgetting is that the most vulnerable point of entry that we have into this country is our southern border and we have to protect it."
"They're not coming across the southern borders, Sarah. They're coming and being stopped at airports," Wallace refuted.
"They're coming in a number of ways. Certainly, I'm not disagreeing with you that they come through their airports," Sanders replied. "I'm saying by air, by land and by sea. And the more and more that our border becomes vulnerable and the less and less we spend time and money protecting it the more of an influx we're going to have, not just of terrorists, but of human traffickers, drug inflow and people wanting to do American citizens harm."
Chris Wallace turns on Sarah Sanders swapping #FictionForFacts
For Chris Wallace to say he's studied it and that no terrorists have come over the southern border from Mexico is ridiculous.
Wallace is a Ministry of Propaganda operative doing his best to obscure reality.
There was a guy that crossed in 2011, skipped his court date, ran away to Canada, then stabbed some people.
How does he plan to prove that something isn’t happening?
When some enterprising terrorist group smuggles a nuke in and detonates it, the libs will still deny that their border policies had anything to do with it.
They’re certainly is potential terrorists coming over the border. If criminals can come across so can terrorists.
That smnarmy little prick thought he had Trump nailed on prescription drug prices during the debate too, remember? That didn’t earn him a Pulitzer and neither will this.
And they will blame it on President Trump.
He can’t and he knows it, I’m fed up with this liberal hack.
‘There’ I mean.
“That didnt earn him a Pulitzer and neither will this.”
Well, he DID GET elected ‘PRESIDENT of ANUS’ INTL’>>>!
Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.
To say that closing down the southern border is an insignificant act neglect the fact that it only takes one.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
Wow, Chris! Good thing COP KILLERS, hardened FELONS, PEDOPHILES and other criminals are coming across the border and NOT TERRORISTS!!! /s
If Wallace does not know who is cvoming across, how can he say they are definitely not terrorists?
Liberal lack of logic strikes again!
If they kill cops or rape and murder women, is that not terror?
Notmto mention there are foreign agents coming through the southern border. chinese spies for one.
Wallace answers to Shep Smith. Stopped watching him long ago.
the ‘terrorists’ debate is important but almost besides the point. It’s like arguing abortion in light of rape. The issue is that unfettered and illegal immigration is bad for the country and brings with a large cadre of issues including terrorists, drugs, and human trafficking.
I never watch Fox News Sunday because of Wallace. He’s a phony and disgusting little worm.
