*Fox News contributor Rachel Campos-Duffy defended detention centers for undocumented migrants at the U.S. border, saying that several African-Americans told her that conditions there appeared better than the housing projects where they were raised.
“I spoke to some African-Americans who say, ‘Gosh, the conditions of the detention centers are better than some of the projects that I grew up in,’” Campos-Duffy said on the set of Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” on Thursday.
“The detention centers are far safer than the journey that these children just came on,” she added. “People aren’t stupid.”
Campos-Duffy, part of MTV’s 1994 cast of “The Real World: San Francisco,” did not elaborate on the black people she supposedly spoke with.
Earlier in the week, host Laura Ingraham caused outrage when she defended the child detention centers as resembling “summer camps.” The moment sparked renewed calls for a boycott by Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg, whose last boycott led to the departure of dozens of sponsors from the show.
If we get these advertisers pulled maybe @Ingraham will have to become a camp counselor and learn how wrong she is.
