BORDER/CONGRESS/IMMIGRATION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “President Trump came away empty-handed for now after the longest federal government shutdown in American history failed to pressure Congress into funding his long-promised border wall, purportedly to stop an inflow of drugs and crime from Mexico. But he is not done making his case on immigration. On Sunday [1-27-19] he rattled off several figures on Twitter about how many undocumented immigrants there are in the United States, how much they cost the country financially and how many had illegally voted in Texas. There were already many problems with Mr. Trump’s assertion that undocumented immigrants disproportionately bring with them more drugs and crime. And several experts said they had concerns with the figures he disseminated on Sunday. The White House did not respond to a request for comment.”
