Video: Trump Talks Immigration

Donald Trump’s trip to Mexico and his speech in Arizona on immigration are the focus of this week’s fact-checking video from CNN’s Jake Tapper. JakeTapper

Tapper reviews five statements from Trump about immigration, including claims about the number of people living in the U.S. illegally and the number of criminals among them. Tapper also looks at Trump’s claims that Hillary Clinton would give unauthorized immigrants benefits and that she wants to admit 620,000 Syrian refugees into the U.S.

The video, which is part of FactCheck.org’s collaboration with CNN’S “State of the Union,” is based on our Sept. 1 article “Trump Still Off on Immigration.”
