AP falsely fact-checks accounts of terrorists apprehended at US-Mexico border

Oct 29, 2022 | Political News

Biden's border crisis saw a record number of 2,378,944 illegal immigrant encounters in the 2022 fiscal year, including 98 individuals on the terrorist watch list, which the Associated Press falsely claims is a fact missing context.

While outlets such as Fox News have reported on the 98 arrests, AP wrote on Thursday that “While the US Border Patrol has reported 98 encounters with people on the US government’s terrorist watchlist along the southwest border, those individuals were stopped by border agents, and did not escape into the US,” which is another way of saying “arrested.”
