Kelly Macias, staff writer at the Daily Kos, talks President Trump's Easter Sunday tweets claiming the Mexican border is overrun with illegal immigrants trying to take advantage of DACA. We dig into the erroneous nature of these comments since the only immigrants who can take advantage of DACA are those who have been in the states since 2007. President Trump made comments a year ago that illegal immigration had been reduced at the Mexico border by 60%. Macias notes that part of the president's contradictory statements could be to gain favor with his base. We also dig into President Trump's threats to end NAFTA if Mexico does not step in to assist with illegal immigration and what that means for the relations with our allies.
