The Hill reports:
Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Monday described the child detention facilities housing immigrant youth as “essentially summer camps.”
Ingraham’s comments come amid growing outcry over the Trump administration’s policy to prosecute migrants crossing the border illegally, leading to thousands of children being separated from their parents and housed in what the government is calling “tent cities.”
“As more illegal immigrants are rushing the border, more kids are being separated from their parents,” Ingraham said. “And temporarily housed at what are, essentially, summer camps.”

You pulled your advertising after Ingraham made fun of a teenage school shooting survivor, then you went back. Now she’s calling children kept in cages after being separated from their parents “summer camp”.
