Anchor Jake Tapper said: ‘I want to give you the opportunity to respond to one of the criticisms we see on the right in the conservative media and Republican politicians focusing on border images that show he there is a formula available for processing centers for undocumented migrants. immigrants. This is Fox this morning.

FNC host Ainsley Earhardt said: “She says they give the formula, all these palettes of formula, to the illegal babies at the border. Meanwhile, so many American families can’t find this formula on their store shelves.

Jayapal said, “I found it disgusting. I would never say a baby is illegal, and that apparently comes from the party that says it’s pro-life, pro-family. I did not want to fund the child tax credit so that millions of children could be lifted out of poverty. I don’t want to provide child care, I don’t want to provide paid time off, family leave.

She added, “I don’t need to be lectured by people who won’t even stand up for the kids here and then use a crisis like this to do what they’ve always done, demonize immigrants. . It’s just ridiculous.”
