During Friday's edition of The Lead With Jake Tapper, CNN Political Analyst Paul Begala reacted to President Trump's meeting with the "angel moms" (and dads) who lost their children at the hands of illegal immigrants.  According to Begala, "He's taking this raw, real pain that these poor families are suffering, which is authentic, and he's politicizing it.  Right? It is monstrous to take these folks' pain and then try to use it to divide America. It is true, as we saw from the guy from the Customs and Border Patrol Agents Union, that the immigrant population commits fewer crimes."
