Snopes was forced to correct itself Thursday after bungling its original fact check on Tucker Carlson’s op-ed about the New Way Forward Act.

Carlson’s op-ed, along with a segment on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” slammed the immigration reform bill. Carlson noted the bill, if passed, would “protect criminals from deportation.” Snopes originally gave the comments a “mixture” rating before being forced to correct itself and change the fact check to “mostly true.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“This article originally stated that certain provisions in the New Way Forward Act would remove a requirement for some offenses to carry a one-year sentence in order to form the basis of a deportation order, thereby making deportation easier in some cases,” Snopes wrote in its correction. “In fact, the bill would replace the one-year minimum sentence requirement with a five-year minimum sentence requirement, thereby making deportation more difficult in those cases. As a result of this correction, the rating has been changed from ‘Mixture’ to ‘Mostly True.’”

The Daily Caller noted that Snope’s added their correction in small print at the very end of the article.

Daily Caller reporter Shelby Talcott then pointed out that Snopes had made an error of their own, originally writing that Carlson’s op-ed was published on Feb. 17 – a date that hasn’t even arrived yet.

On February 7, Carlson exposed the “New Way Forward Act,” an open-borders bill (HR5383) supported by 44 Democrat congress members, which would eliminate the requirement that an illegal alien be automatically deported if they commit a crime – including the crime of falsifying a passport.

Not only would illegal alien criminals not be deported, but the bill includes a “right to come home” provision, which uses taxpayer money to bring deported criminals back into America. All 480,000 people previously deported, at a cost of about $1 billion, Carlson estimated.

In a Facebook Live video last week, Dennis Michael Lynch, founder of DMLNewsApp and TeamDML.com, weighed in on the pending open-borders bill which Tucker Carlson exposed. WATCH BELOW:
