During an appearance on” The View” in early May, U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw sparred with host Sunny Hostin as they discussed border security and immigration issues.
“Aren’t you bunching everyone together when you’re talking about undocumented immigrants?” Hostin said to Crenshaw, a Republican from Houston, who was discussing new reports about the number of people apprehended in recent months after crossing the border illegally.
“Many of these people are seeking asylum,” she said. “What happened to our country’s promise of give me your tired, your weak and your poor; people who are truly coming here to seek a better life?”
“As it turns out, about 80 to 90 percent of those don’t have a valid asylum claim, once we actually get their documentation,” Crenshaw said in reply.
