Go watch the video.Trump has been using the claim that MS-13 is invading America as a pretext for his bigoted immigration policy. The fact is that MS-13 is not invading America, and that gang members and criminals make up a tiny number of immigrants apprehended on the border. Trump is using this lie to scare the Republican base into getting out to vote in the midterms. It is not Barack Obama who is coming to get scared white Republicans anymore. It’s MS-13. The playbook is the same, only the boogeyman has changed.
The White House is also falsely claiming that anyone who doesn’t want babies ripped away from their parents and locked in cages is pro-MS-13. The official White House Twitter account used this line of attack on potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidates Sens. Elizabeth Warren (MA) and Kamala Harris (CA). MS-13 is a very violent gang, but they are falsely used as political cover for a racist immigration policy.
So tired of Trump's lies.
