In that portion of the interviews in the video, Hasan backs Crenshaw into a corner with the CBP statistic that 72% of migrants trying to cross the border without papers are deported. Crenshaw finally accepts that, but says it means the border is still “open.” Ignore the absurdity of that argument, because Crenshaw supplants it with this one.

And of course there's the part of the interview where he tells FoxNews Biden has suspended deportations, and then tells Hasan he (Crenshaw) never said deportations had been suspended. So he stil insists deporatations have been suspended, while agreeing that 72% of immigrants are deported, but that makes the border "open."
If you read the article or the DHS memo, it explains that the policy doesn’t apply to those who arrived in the US after November. https://t.co/aEmSHR3U7G— Ben Zell (@MrBenZell) March 22, 2021
Hasan has statistics. Crenshaw has phone calls from a former CBP officer. Purely anecdotal evidence for the win?
Me: "Since the pandemic... border apprehensions have gone up month after month. Joe Biden did not inherit falling numbers."— Mehdi Hasan (@mehdirhasan) March 22, 2021
GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw: "I don't know where you're getting figures from."
Me: "Those are CBP numbers."
