White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was grilled by Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday over the accuracy of the administration’s talking points about President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall.
During an interview on Fox News Sunday, Sanders asserted that “roughly 4,000 known or suspected terrorist come into our country illegally and we know that our most vulnerable point of entry is at our southern border.”
“Wait, wait, wait,” Wallace interrupted. “I know this statistic. I didn’t know you were going to use it, but I studied up on this. Do you know where those 4,000 people — where they are captured? Airports!”
“Not always!” Sanders insisted.
“The State Department says there hasn’t been any terrorists that they’ve found coming across the southern border,” Wallace pointed out.
“But the one thing that you’re forgetting is the most vulnerable point of entry that we have is the southern border,” Sanders repeated.
“But they’re not coming across the southern border, Sarah!” Wallace scolded.
The Fox News host also pressed Sanders about a claim that the president can build a wall on the southern border without authorization from Congress.
“How serious is he about that?” Wallace asked. “Has the White House drafted an emergency border — a resolution that he could announce tomorrow we are declaring a national emergency, we are going to build a wall? Has he set a deadline for when his going to end talks and simply say I’m going to go off on my own and do it?”
“That’s a lot of questions,” Sanders complained.
“Three,” Wallace said, adding, “It’s all the same question. How serious is he? Is he really prepared go off on his own and use money that was authorized for military construction and building wall instead?”
“The president is prepared to do what it takes to protect our borders, protect the people of this country,” Sanders remarked.

Why was Jeffrey Epstein buying size 5 women’s panties — while in jail?
The Miami Herald has another bombshell report on Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail while waiting to stand trial on federal sex crimes charges.
"A decade ago, during a brief stint in Palm Beach County Jail, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein made an odd purchase at the facility’s store: two pairs of small women’s panties, size 5," the Herald reported Saturday night.
The newspaper noted, "the panties raise questions about why a childless male inmate, accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14, would be allowed to buy female undergarments so small that they wouldn’t fit an average-sized adult woman."

Democrats could flip the Texas state house in 2020 — and reshape the national map
Blue Texas? Democrats have long dreamt of winning Texas’s 38 electoral votes in the presidential election. That may still be a long shot, but a recent “Texodus” from Congress has given new talk to a political transformation across the Lone Star State that could have massive ramifications down the ballot and for decades to come.
Four of the state’s GOP members of Congress have announced their retirements in recent weeks, an unusual torrent of departures signaling that a storm is coming. And evidence shows that it’s not just hitting Texas’s federal delegation. It’s coming to Austin, too.
