Fox News contributor Rachel Campos-Duffy claimed on June 21 that “some African-Americans” are envious of the detention centers where immigrant children caged (more video below).
Campos-Duffy made her racist claim on “The Ingraham Angle”:
The detention centers are far safer than the journey that these children just came on. 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.”
“The Ingraham Angle” is hosted by Laura Ingraham who described the detention centers as “essentially summer camps” on June 19:
