    Tapper: Trump is lying to you to get border wall (video)

    Tapper: Trump is lying to you to get border wall - CNN Video

    CNN's Jake Tapper debunks President Trump's claim that violent crime decreased in El Paso, Texas, because of barriers built at the US-Mexico border.



    Trump spouted a false claim during the SOTU. El Paso has never had a high level of violent crime. The barrier caused violent crime to increase.

    Trump is lying so that he can mislead enough people so that he can fulfill his campaign pledge that he will build a southern border wall. He is lying to you.

    USA Today on Sunday was quoting locals and the mayor - they DO NOT WANT a wall. The article goes on to say El Paso is thriving BECAUSE of free passage across the border. He said this is happening IN SPITE of the wall that exists, which many locals want torn down.

    The same source quotes hundreds of Guatemalans who worked illegally for Trump's golf courses...whose management were facilitating transportation to the US.

    Heavy equipment operators were paid $8.00 per hour where the union rate was nearly $40.

    Now he vilifies the same type of people to drive anger in his "base."

    Seems important.

    But the Trumpanzees don’t care.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    The next time he shuts down the government people in key areas should call out sick in sympathy. Really get the country messed up. Magnify his lack of concern for the people he is supposed to be governing & throw it right back in his orange-colored face.

    it's probably enough to sick out LaGuardia. rich people hate that, and then they start leaning on McConnell.

    El Paso had buildings, homes and CITIZENS being struck by stray bullets from Juarez, before the wall.


    NOT ANYMORE, and despite the INGOING LIES of the FAKE NEWS/LIESPEAK "FACT CHECKERS", FEDERAL CRIME STATS SHOW CRIME HAS DROPPED 20% PLUS since the wall was built.


    Looks like it's YOU and the rest of the LYING LEFT doing the LYING.



    This town is proof that Trump’s wall can work



    Before 2010, federal data show the border city was mired in violent crime and drug smuggling, thanks in large part to illicit activities spilling over from the Mexican side. Once the fence went up, however, things changed almost overnight. El Paso since then has consistently topped rankings for cities of 500,000 residents or more with low crime rates, based on FBI-collected statistics. The turnaround even caught the attention of former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and other Obama administration officials, who touted it as one of the nation’s safest cities while citing the beefed-up border security there.

    Federal data illustrates just how remarkable the turnaround in crime has been since the fence was built. According to FBI tables, property crimes in El Paso have plunged more than 37 percent to 12,357 from their pre-fence peak of 19,702 a year, while violent crimes have dropped more than 6 percent to 2,682 from a peak of 2,861 a year.The overall crime rate in El Paso continued to fall last year, prompting city leaders to trumpet the good news in a press release that noted, “Because El Paso is a border town, its low crime rate may surprise you.”
