'We Should Let Them In': College Students Support Migrant Caravan Heading Toward US Border
Campus Reform asked college students what they think of the migrant caravan making its way from Central America to the U.S. border.
Most students at Pennsylvania's Lock Haven University were supportive of letting the migrants into the country in interviews with Cabot Phillips.
"Diversity creates strength," one male student said, while another student said "we stole this land anyway," suggesting the migrants have just as much right to be in the United States.
"We should let them in, give them a fair chance at a better life," another student argued.
Phillips pressed a female student on whether U.S. authorities will be able to identify the people coming in.
"I don't know, I guess we take that chance," she responded.
Reacting on "Fox & Friends," Campus Reform editor-in-chief Lawrence Jones noted that the prevailing sentiment among college students nowadays is that border enforcement is "racist" or anti-immigrant.
President Trump promised the caravan members would not be allowed into the U.S. in an interview with Laura Ingraham Monday night.
Despite Trump's deployment of 5,200 troops to the border to assist Homeland Security and the Border Patrol, the caravan is still advancing.
"People that are in gangs, we don’t want them in this country," Trump said. "If they want to come into the country, you have to apply like other people."
