Trump Lies Again about the Border

TRUMP: CLINTON WANTS TO ABOLISH BORDERS: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Saturday that Hillary Clinton wants to eliminate the United States' borders. While speaking to an anti-immigrant group at a luncheon, Trump described Clinton as "the first person in history to run for the presidency who is proposing to abolish the borders around the country that she is supposed to protect." Trump's accusation, of course, bears no resemblance to the truth. Clinton supports a path to citizenship for undocumented workers, and would continue the Obama administration's policy of allowing certain undocumented immigrants to stay in the country. But "she has never advocated halting deportations of undocumented immigrants convicted of crimes, or reducing or ending border enforcement," Eli Stokols reports for POLITICO. More here.
