As we’ve told you, President Trump is in Texas at the southern border explaining his plan for a border wall while CNN’s Jim Acosta is on the scene to provide some rebuttal on behalf of the Democrats. Meanwhile, Rep. Ted Lieu tried to mock Trump’s call for a border wall with another story from up north:
110 pounds of the opioid fentanyl was seized in the Port of Philadelphia. This is why we need a wall on the southern border.

Because one problem exists, does that mean the other one doesn’t? Lieu might want to put up a wall to keep out reality checks:
110 lbs, still too much but —
"U.S. Border Patrol seized over 3,500 pounds of opioids—including 286 pounds of fentanyl—between 2013-2017, primarily at the Southern Border. “ https://t.co/7aCieLgfpS

1. Article is from July
2. Trump knows fentanyl comes from China
3. NYT fact check confirmed 90% heroin comes from Mexico
4. issue is that heroin comes through port of entry in trucks, etc. and wall won't stop it
But good tweet. https://t.co/uNpuCtMD0r
