Fox News’ Chris Wallace Just Obliterated Trump’s Claim Of a ‘Border Crisis’

Fox News Anchor Chris Wallace on Friday morning debunked President Donald Trump’s claim of a “border crisis” by citing immigration statistics that show illegal immigration is actually in decline.

Wallace comments came ahead of Trump’s speech, in which he was expected to declare a national emergency to deal with the so-called crisis at the southern border.

Wallace said during a Friday morning appearance on Fox News that the move could quickly result in a resolution of disapproval in Congress.

“Under the National Emergencies act of 1976, Congress has 15 days to pass a resolution of disapproval. That will almost certainly happen,” he said.

Wallace later added that migration across the southern border was down from previous levels.

“If you look at the statistics, four times as many people were coming over the border in the year 2000,” he explained. “1.6 million people were apprehended coming across the border in 2000. Last year it was less than 400,000. So the argument could be yes, there certainly is a problem and yes people are coming over the border but it is only a fraction, about 25% of how many people were coming over in the year 2000. So what national emergency?”

“Of course, the president will say it’s a different group. A lot more families, they are coming from Central America. And under the rules, a law passed in 2007 or 2008 I believe they aren’t allowed if they’re from Central America as opposed to Mexico to return them right away. The president will make the case it’s a national emergency but you can be sure there will be plenty of people on the other side who will say it isn’t.”
