After a New York Times op-ed writer said President Donald Trump’s stories about immigrant crime were “bogus,” a spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security provided him with examples.

David Brooks, an opinion writer for The New York Times, appeared on PBS NewsHour on Feb. 7 to discuss a slate of political topics, such as the president’s recent acquittal, the Democratic presidential election and Trump’s latest State of the Union address. While speaking about the address, Brooks referred to the president’s mention of immigrant-related crime as “bogus stories.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“Yes, I actually thought it was his most effective speech as president,” Brooks said of the address. “He had some of the stuff he has always had, which is these bogus stories of crimes that immigrants have committed.”

Homeland Security spokesperson Heather Swift fired back with a list of crimes committed by illegal aliens, and informed him they were definitely not bogus.

She tweeted, “Hi, @nytdavidbrooks. Saw your interview, where you said POTUS had “bogus stories of crimes that immigrants have committed.” Not true. Let me introduce you to a few. I’m sad to say there are many, many tragic stories of lives destroyed and lost due to crimes by illegal aliens.”

Then came the actual stories…

From your own paper, the story @POTUS shared in the SOTU. A 92 year old woman was savagely raped and murdered by an illegal alien NYC refused to turn him over to @ICEgov after he was arrested for assault.

Another horrible example in NY/NJ where two child rapists were released in New York and New Jersey after they refused to hold the suspects in jail for ICE.

Here’s a video of a mother whose teenage son was murdered by an illegal alien, begging for stronger enforcement of immigration laws nationwide.

An illegal immigrant targeted a woman he previously raped once he was released from custody in Oklahoma after authorities failed to honor an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer.

Angel mom Sabine Durden weighed in, tweeting, “All of these victims’ families will disagree with @nytdavidbrooks. And sadly this is just a small portion of those killed by illegals.”

Another angel mom, Laura Wilkerson, whose son was killed by an illegal alien, also responded, tweeting, “Thanks Heather. @nytdavidbrooks has no idea what pain our families continue to go through. My Josh was so disfigured from being beaten and set on fire, that I didn’t get to see him in his casket. My josh had more dignity than this man will ever have.”

Navy veteran Christopher Fagan also provided more examples of Americans killed by illegal aliens:
