Let’s have some truth bombs before tonight’s address:

#NoWall Fact 1:
Illegal border crossings are way down

In the early 2000’s, 1.3-1.6 million people were apprehended crossing the border.

2018? <400,000…

#NoWall Fact 2:
Undocumented Immigrants are not causing a crime wave at the border, in fact the southern border counties are among the safest in the country!

#NoWall Fact 3:
The majority of undocumented immigrants DO NOT sneak across the border, they are people who came to the US legally and overstayed their visa. A wall does NOTHING to address this.

#NoWall Fact 4: No, terrorists are not crossing our southern border in droves.

The White House has claimed that 4000 terrorists have been arrested at the border, but the vast majority of them have been at airports not the southern border.

#NoWall Fact 5: Migrant Caravans aren’t armed invaders. They are people fleeing a humanitarian crisis and coming to the border to LEGALLY apply for asylum as required by US law.

Any humanitarian crisis at our border is the FAULT of Trump’s policy.…
#NoWall Fact 6: The border wall will not be effective in stopping the heroin trafficking.

Why? The shipments aren’t brought by people. The majority are brought by car or truck at monitored crossings.

We need better screening. #NoWallEver…
#NoWall Fact 7: Even the conservatives don’t like it.

2 years of a GOP controlled Congress and Trump couldn’t get it passed.…
#NoWall Fact 8: There’s already 650 miles of fencing and wall along the border in the most accessible areas to cross.

The rest of the border is covered by drones and surveillance- ways that Dems promote as EFFECTIVE border security.

#NoWall Fact 9:
The majority of American people do NOT support building the border wall.

56% are against building the wall.…
