Rick Perry pointed to a statistic frequently used by Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw. It said "criminal aliens" have been charged with 642,000 crimes in TexasAn examination of the statistic used by Perry shows that it doesn't make the claim expressed in Toth's tweet — although state Sen. José Rodríguez, D-El Paso, said it's designed to leave that impression."This is a deliberate misrepresentation," Rodríguez said. "It's about promoting the Big Lie."Asked to document Perry's claim, the Department of Public Safety provided a document that unpacked the statistic — and showed that it has little relevance to the current situation on the South Texas border, Rodríguez said.El Paso Times
