June 19, 2018 – No stranger to controversy, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham is facing backlash after comparing immigration detention centers for children to “essentially summer camps.” From her show The Ingraham Angle:
“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…The president is doing what we should have been doing all along, prosecuting all border crashers.”
Twitter was quick to respond including the trending “#boycottlaura.”
Laura Ingraham just said the detention internment centers are “basically summer camps.”
