Fact Check of Trump's speech

President Donald Trump made several false or misleading statements about illegal immigration and border security in a nationally televised speech Tuesday evening.

The speech, intended to win political support for Trump's proposed $5.7 billion wall along the southern border, came as a partial shutdown of the federal government over the matter stretched into its third week, with affected government employees expected to miss their first payday on Friday.

Here are some of the untruths and distortions in Trump's speech, most of which he's uttered before.
