NYTs Reporter Said Trump’s Immigration Stories are ‘Bogus’ Immediately Disproven by Facts

A New York Times reporter tried to claim that Trump’s immigration crime stories were “bogus” until the Department of Homeland Security provided him with information that backed up Trump’s claims.

According to The Daily Caller:

After a New York Times op-ed writer said President Donald Trump’s stories about immigrant crime were “bogus,” a spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security provided him with examples.

David Brooks, an opinion writer for The New York Times, appeared on PBS NewsHour on Feb. 7 to discuss a slate of political topics, such as the president’s recent acquittal, the Democratic presidential election and Trump’s latest State of the Union address. While speaking about the address, Brooks referred to the president’s mention of immigrant-related crime as “bogus stories.”

“Yes, I actually thought it was his most effective speech as president,” Brooks said of the address. “He had some of the stuff he has always had, which is these bogus stories of crimes that immigrants have committed.”

“But if you go back to his campaign in 2016, it was an American carnage campaign. It was all crime,” he continued. “It was all fear. It was all division.”

DHS Spokesperson Heather Swift responded:

Trump focused on the dangers of sanctuary cities and his attorney general has announced a new and stronger approach to sanctuary cities.
