Trump Lies: Politifact Rates Claim That Dems Let a Cop Killer Immigrate to US ‘Pants on Fire’

Trump’s tweet, “Democrats let him (cop killer Luis Bracamontes) into our country,” and “Democrats let him stay,” on Oct. 31 is his latest statement to be rated a “Pants on Fire” lie by nonpartisan Politifact.

From Politifact:

Trump tweeted a campaign-style video Oct. 31 about two California sheriff officers who were shot to death by an immigrant in the country illegally.

The video opens with courtroom footage of a smiling Luis Bracamontes. Superimposed are the words, “Illegal immigrant, Luis Bracamontes, killed our people!”

As Bracamontes boasts about killing the two officers and saying he would kill more if he could, new text says, “Democrats let him into our country.”

That’s quickly followed with, “Democrats let him stay.”

The video continues with footage from the caravan of Central Americans moving north in Mexico. At the end, it returns to Bracamontes’ smirking face and asks, “Who else would Democrats let in?”

The final text says, “President Donald Trump and Republicans are making America safe again.”

Was Bracamontes in America because Democrats let him in? Not for his most recent entry. And did lax policies under Democrats let him stay? He evaded discovery, despite increasing efforts to track down criminal and immigration law offenders.
