Border Patrol asked agents for evidence to back up Trump’s “taped-up women” claims

But two weeks after Trump had started talking about tape-gagged women — when a January 17 Washington Post article had questioned the claim — a top Border Patrol official had to email agents to ask if they had “any information” that the claim was actually true.

…It’s not clear where Trump is getting his information — but it doesn’t appear to be through official intelligence.

…Requests for information to the field usually aren’t made to get information backing up particular claims — much less claims being made by the president, and much less claims the president had been making for, at that point, two weeks. The implication of the email is that — after CBP had already been asked for evidence by the Post and declined comment— high-level border officials didn’t have any evidence they could point to to prove that Trump was telling the truth.

…Border experts have told the Post and other reporters that they’ve never heard of anything like what Trump is talking about.
