Agreed this initial sentence is DISHONEST and the Fact checking is Dishonest on source.
1) President Donald Trump has long railed against immigration as a scourge on the economy and national security. HE has never accused 'immigration" as a scourge, he has accused "ILLEGAL immigration as such"
2) Trump managed to accuse immigrants in the country illegally of stealing jobs from American workers, There we go again, Correlating LEGAL H1B and visa recipients as a whole with "Illegals that enter our country without a legal VISA or travel document"
This is within the first paragraph, Im supposed to take the rest serious when the supposed "fact" check is using "lies" to validate their argument.
"The fact is that 75 percent of immigrants arrived legally" - I REALLY WANT TO SEE THIS NUMBER

2018 FY "Immigrant issued VISA's - 550,930 WESTERN HEMISPHERE GRAND TOTAL-
As just the other day there was a POST that showed - 396,579 southwest boarder apprehensions 2018FY. THATS JUST The Border Not illegals that over stay visa's or births in the country.
Just do the math, 71% of the Western Hemisphere LEGAL VISA approvals were eclipsed by ILLEGAL border crossings from just the southern border alone..
