Fox’s Campos-Duffy: ‘African Americans’ Told Me Child Migrant Centers Are Better Than ‘the Projects’

Fox News contributor Rachel Campos-Duffy defended President Donald Trump‘s child separation policy by saying migrants kids got to enjoy better living conditions than African Americans get to have in urban housing projects.

The former Real World contestant was on with Laura Ingraham last night to talk about Melania Trump‘s visit to the border and the media criticism she got over her fashion misstep. During the discussion, Campos-Duffy dismissed the outrage over Trump’s rescinded policy while recalling a conversation she had with “some African Americans.”

“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,’” said Campos-Duffy. “The detention centers are far safer than the journey that these children just came on. People aren’t stupid.”

Campos-Duffy’s remark comes just days after Ingraham, her host, earned a mountain of condemnation by referring to the detention centers as “essentially summer camp.”

The rest of the conversation moved ahead to address the criticism Melania Trump caused by wearing an “I Really Don’t Care” jacket en route to visit a detention center for migrant children — and both Ingraham and Campos-Duffy chided the first lady for the move.
