“In a tweet issued Friday, President Donald Trump ramped up his scare-mongering over immigration by suggesting Muslims are crossing the border between Mexico and the U.S. and leaving behind their prayer rugs.
The president cited an eyebrow-raising Washington Examiner report, which interviewed a rancher on the border who requested anonymity to claim that people have found Islamic prayer rugs on their property.
The anonymous rancher doesn’t provide any evidence, but claims that in the last 6 months, the nationalities of detained border crossers included ‘Chinese, Germans, Russians, a lot of Middle Easterners, [and] those Czechoslovakians,’ not just people from Mexico and Central America. Czechoslovakia, it should be noted, is a country that has not existed since 1992.”
