There is no credible evidence that this is the case.

With no resolution in sight in his fight for a wall on the southern U.S. border, President Donald Trump on Friday morning promoted an unfounded claim from a conservative newspaper purporting that Islamic prayer rugs have been found scattered along the border.

The claim implies that a significant number of Muslims are illegally entering the country through the southern border with Mexico and, taken together with his other comments about the border, that they are dangerous. Although some Muslims do cross the U.S.-Mexico border, numbers are relatively low and past claims about prayer rugs found there have been disproven.

Trump cited The Washington Examiner in his tweet about the supposed rugs. The site published a story on Wednesday featuring a video interview with an unnamed woman who said that although she has never seen Middle Eastern people along the border, she has seen what she described as prayer rugs.

She presented no photos or details on how she knew they were prayer rugs. HuffPost reached out to the author of the piece for clarification but did not receive an immediate response.
