“I was wrong when I expressly said that Pakistan had expelled Palestinians. The government there is, in fact, kicking out 1.7 million people and what they’re calling a ‘tiered repatriation.’ Pakistan says those people are there illegally — they’re illegal immigrants. Now, here’s who they are: mostly Afghans who have tried to flee the Taliban. Some Uyghurs, ethnic Muslims who are facing genocide in China. And some from Iran and other places. So, I want to set the record straight — it is a mixed group of people, mostly Afghans being expelled.” – Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner, who make the false claim twice in attacks on Rep. Rashida Tlaib during last week’s shows.
Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner asks “what in the world is [Tlaib] saying to the leaders of Pakistan” since they “have expelled 1.7 million Palestinians with nowhere to go.”
