In case you're listening to Trump, most asylum seekers released before an asylum hearing do actually show up as required. https://t.co/aoF1V0FFDJ

It was repeated on Fox this morning. Ainsley Earhardt said she'd "heard it was only 2%." https://t.co/WzUINyUbin

So @jaketapper points out that the President, who said only 3% of asylum seekers show up court dates, was wrong.
Nope. It’s 76%, and was up to 99% under a new pilot program President Trump ended.
So just a completely entirely false misleading stat off by 10x.
