Trump: “Bad Hombres” Coming to U.S. from Mexico

Trump lit up social media by asserting, on immigration, that “bad hombres” are coming in to the country from Mexico.

Referring to the crimes committed by undocumented immigrants, Donald Trump said in the third presidential debate that “we have some bad hombres here.”

Bloomberg went up with a quick fact-check, saying that “[n]oncitizens comprise 4.6% of the total incarcerated population in the U.S. and about 7% of the total U.S. population, according to the Congressional Research Service.”

#badhombres started trending on Twitter immediately after.
