Trump Wrong About the Border?
Media ignores facts
CNN -- June 24, 2015   
Trump stands by immigration remarks, blames media 
    Manchester, NH -- Businessman Donald Trump and his daughter, Ivanka, are slamming "the media" for taking recent comments he made about Mexicans and other immigrants out of context.
    As he enters his second week as an official presidential candidate Trump has faced criticism, and protestors at campaign events, after calling for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to keep out Mexican "rapists" and criminals.
    Stumping for her dad in Manchester, New Hampshire, on Wednesday, Ivanka Trump said the media "twisted" his words.
    "He was talking about illegal immigration, and a porous border between the U.S. and Mexico; he wasn't talking about the Mexican people," she said when asked about the topic. "He was talking about people coming across the border illegally and so it was very sad for me to see that that message was totally taken out of context and the mainstream media really ran with it.”
    Trump himself said his comments were meant to criticize U.S. immigration policies and not the Mexican people or government in a statement he released on Wednesday.
    "I am personally offended by the mainstream media's attempt to distort my comments regarding Mexico and its great people," he said. "I have many successful business relationships with Mexican companies and employ, and am close friends with, many Mexican people. I also have tremendous respect for the leaders of Mexico, who, frankly, are much smarter and tougher than our politicians here in the United States."

I Too Am Offended

   Donald Trump is climbing in the polls and is number two in New Hampshire.
    
Somehow, the people know that he is telling the truth about the border.
    
Since Pres. Bush signed the Secure Fence Act of 2006, ABP has worked to tell the truth about fencing.
    
Sen. Elizabeth Dole used our data to help defeat amnesty.
    
We know more about the border and how to solve the problems than anyone; yet, we are totally ignored by the media.
    
Donald Trump says he is offended by the media.
    
So am I.
