White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempted on Sunday morning to further the lie that thousands of terrorists have been stopped trying to cross the the southern border of the United States. Fox News’ Chris Wallace was ready.

The Fox News Sunday host played a clip of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen claiming that her agency has stopped over 3,000 “special interest aliens”—anyone who comes from a country that has ever produced a terrorist—”trying to come into the country on the southern border,” and informed that press secretary that President Trump’s own State Department has found “no credible evidence” of any terrorists coming across the border from Mexico.

All living former presidents refute Trump's claim they privately voiced support for border wall All four living ex-presidents have publicly rebuffed President Trump’s claim that they privately gushed about the need for a massive wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump made the questionable remark during a raucous press conference in the White House Rose Garden on Friday while defending his refusing to reopen the government without Congress first earmarking at least $5 billion for a behemoth barrier on the border. “This should have been done by all of the presidents that preceded me and they all know it," Trump said of his wall obsession. "Some of them have told me that we should have done it.

Fox News host Chris Wallace challenged White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on some of President Trump’s claims about border The exchange comes as the partial government shutdown , which began over Trump’s demand for billion in funding for a wall, enters its third week.

But Sanders doubled down, saying, “We know that roughly, nearly 4,000 known or suspected terrorists come into our country illegally and we know that our most vulnerable point of entry is at our southern border.”

“Wait, wait, wait,” Wallace said, stopping her there. “Because, I know the statistic. I didn’t know if you were going to use it, but I studied up on this. Do you know where those 4,000 people come—where they are captured? Airports.”

As Sanders replied, “Not always,” Wallace interjected and repeated, “Airports,” adding,“The state department says there hasn’t been any terrorists that they’ve found coming across the southern border with Mexico,” Wallace said.

“It’s by air, it’s by land, it’s by sea, it’s all of the above,” Sanders added, “but one thing that you’re forgetting is at the most vulnerable point of entry that we have into this country is our southern border. And we have to protect it.”

But Fox News ’ Chris Wallace wasn’t having it. Sanders had a heated exchange with the host of “ Fox News Sunday” as she discussed President Donald Trump’s threat to continue the partial government shutdown if his demand for billion to fund a U.S.-Mexico border wall isn’t met by Democrats.

Fox News host Chris Wallace challenged White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on some of President Trump’s claims about Sanders then suggested that an “influx” of “ terrorists ” would flow through the border without increased security, such as Trump’s proposed border wall.

“But they’re not coming across the southern border, Sarah, they’re coming and they’re being stopped at airports,” Wallace said once again.

Ultimately, Sanders told him, “I’m not disagreeing with you that they’re coming through airports,” before pivoting to say, “the more and more that our border becomes vulnerable and the less and less that we spend time and money protecting it, the more that we’re going to have an influx, not just of terrorists, but of human traffickers, drug inflow and people who are coming here to do American citizens harm.”

A few of hours later, Brian Stelter showed the clip of the exchange on his CNN show Reliable Sources, and declared, “All I want to say is thank you, Chris Wallace.”
