Migrants are asked, ‘Biden or Trump?’

Migrants at an Arizona tent camp overwhelmingly chose President Biden over former President Trump when asked who is “best for illegal immigration.”

The migrants questioned were on an Indian reservation on the Arizona-Mexico border and spoke with “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy who gave a report on her interviews Wednesday.

The migrants were “asking for Joe Biden to help us, to help us accomplish our dreams here, so we can get ahead,” Campos-Duffy reported about those staying at the “soft shelter” before heading to processing centers.

 

“Who is best for illegal immigration? Donald Trump or Joe Biden?” she asked a group of men in the video report.

One by one, each of the five men asserted it was Biden as their choice.

As Campos-Duffy spoke with migrants inside the shelter, they gave various reasons for their arrival at the border and why they sought to stay in the U.S. She spoke with individuals in Spanish and translated responses for the “Fox & Friends” audience.

One man told her it was “urgent” for him to leave after his neighbor was killed while another told Campos-Duffy he faced threats because he used to be a policeman. He noted that the cartels are “worse than ever” due to corruption.

“You know, everyone I spoke to here is Mexican. At least they say they are from Mexico as far as we know,” Campos-Duffy reported. “They all say the exact same thing: ‘I’m escaping crime, I’m escaping threats to my life, criminal cartels.'”

Campos-Duffy noted that one man said “the cartels have never been stronger. That corruption is at a sky-high right now in Mexico. Obviously, this operation, this human trafficking operation, is fueling that.”

One of the migrants who was headed to Florida told Campos-Duffy that his wife had been traumatized after he was kidnapped in Mexico for about a week and some shared how much they had paid to get to the border.

“Many of the stories that they told me sound very much the same,” Campos-Duffy told “Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt.

“They are clearly being coached by the cartels but they are also being coached by government, U.S. government-paid NGOs, and what I gathered from this trip, what really struck me the most is that these massive waves of immigrants coming through, it is impossible to process them without the help of these NGOs,” she said.

“And these NGOs have the added benefit of being able to operate in secret without the same kind of oversight that say a government agency would have,” Campos-Duffy explained, adding that “everyone is making money.”

“The NGOs are making money. The hotels that they eventually end up in are at full capacity, charging 2 to 3 times the rate to the U.S. taxpayers. And then, of course, the Democrat Party, the U.S. government gets what they want, which is a new wave of immigrants, perhaps future voters.”

Earhardt noted the opportunity migrants see with buses and shelters at the ready to take them in.

“And then you hear them say they support Joe Biden, I mean, it’s obvious they see this as this is the time, they have, what nine more months until someone — until Donald Trump could be back in office and this is the chance,” she said as she wondered why other countries are not being held accountable for corruption that creates the atmosphere the cartels thrive in.

“There is so much corruption. It should be up to these other countries to clean up their own governments,” she said.
