More Fake News? Report about Border Patrol Checkpoints during Hurricane Harvey Debunked

Although the liberal media has used the phrase “fake news” to defend itself against the conservative media, it is still a relevant phrase when incorrect news is peddled as truth.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) claimed that the Border Patrol is checking documents of illegal immigrants heading out of Houston during Hurricane Harvey.

However, The Federalist [1] took a deep dive and apparently debunked most of the story behind the ACLU’s claim, that no checkpoints were in place to inhibit those heading out of Houston, nor were there any document checks.
