The first reaction of most people who saw the distressing images and videos of children being kept in chain-link-fence cages and huddling under foil blankets, or heard their cries and screams, would not be that it looked like a summer camp.
But for Fox News host Laura Ingraham, that's exactly what came to mind regarding these immigration detention facilities.
On "The Ingraham Angle" TV show Monday night, the host said: “As more illegal immigrants are rushing the border, more kids are being separated from their parents and temporarily housed at what are, essentially, summer camps.”
She added: “The American people are footing a really big bill for what is tantamount to a slow-rolling invasion of the United States.”
Ingraham was speaking about the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy on immigration, which has so far seen nearly 2,000 minors separated from their parents at the United States' southern border.
“The president is doing what we should have been doing all along: prosecuting all border crashers,” Ingraham continued.
