Fiery MUST-SEE: Powers, Guilfoyle Battle Over Illegal Immigrants Attending Public Schools
The border crisis is spreading from the U.S. southern border to public schools, as a massive influx of migrant children are set to begin integrating in the public education system this fall.
The Department of Education said these children have a right to attend school while they await hearings on possible deportations.
Today on Outnumbered, Kimberly Guilfoyle and Kirsten Powers got in a heated debate during a discussion of the immigration crisis and what to do about these thousands and thousands of children.
Guilfoyle said the U.S. is sending the wrong message and putting children in harm's way by encouraging illegal and dangerous entry into the country.
She added it's not fair to all the families who have gained citizenship legally, and we have a whole host of issues already facing American children.
Powers disagreed, and things got heated on the topic of asylum, as that is what most children claim upon entering the U.S., largely coming from impoverished Central American countries.
“It’s not the children’s fault that they have terrible leaders,” Powers said.
Guilfoyle said asylum is used as a catch-all phrase for every migrant child.
“Everybody gets asylum because you come from a country with a bad economy?" Guilfoyle asked. "How about those countries' responsibilities to actually provide for their people and save jobs.”
