Trump and Biden delivered speeches near the US-Mexico border addressing immigration issues. Biden’s speech focused on accurately describing provisions of a bipartisan border bill, while Trump’s contained numerous unfounded, misleading, and false claims.

Trump asserted migrants look like “warriors” and are being sent by foreign leaders to undermine elections, without evidence.

He claimed the US faces a “new form” of “Biden migrant crime,” despite data showing violent crime is at a 50-year low.

Trump also repeated his unfounded claim that other countries are emptying prisons and mental health facilities to send people to the US as migrants.

“They’re coming from jails and they’re coming from prisons and they’re coming from mental institutions and they’re coming from insane asylums,” Trump said, adding, “You know, I know many of the leaders of these other countries that are doing it.”

“You look at the jails now – you look at the jails throughout the region but more importantly throughout the world, they’re emptying out, because they’re dumping them into the United States,” he later added.

Trump then inflated the amount of border wall constructed under his administration.

In contrast, Biden’s speech focused on factual descriptions of policy proposals.
