Fox& Friends host Ainsley Earhardt met White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Wednesday about why she had recently mischaracterized the number of known or believed terrorists apprehended by border officials in 2018.

Sanders was fact-checked by “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace on Sunday after she claimed that “nearly 4,000 known or suspected gunmen come into our home countries illegally” through the south margin- in an attempt to claim that there is a crisis at the border and justify the need for a border wall. Wallace noted that the government’s own people show that there haven’t been any gunmen find coming across the border and that most were captured at airfields in fiscal 2017.

“Why the increase anatomy? ” Ainsley Earhardt requested Sanders Wednesday morning.

“I should have said 4,000 at all points of entry , not just at the south margin ,” Sanders greeted.” The bottom line is whether it’s one, four, fourteen or four thousand, one terrorists coming into our home countries in illegal fashion to do us injure one too many, and “weve got to” take every step probable to prevent that from happening, including protecting our most vulnerable points of record, and we know that to be the south strip. We have to do what is necessary to protect our own borders, to protect the person or persons, and that’s exactly what President Trump has done, and that’s exactly what he laid out in his speech last night.”

FOX& FRIENDS: Sarah, why did you dramatically inflate the increasing numbers of parties on watchlists who were detained by Border Patrol? @PressSec:” The bottom line is whether it’s one, 4, 14 or 4,000, one terrorist coming into our home countries in illegal fashion to do us injure one too many .” x3HrdANppq
