Fox's Tomi Lahren, ignoring independent watchdog reports, says Democratic lawmakers are lying about dangerous conditions in border detention facilities

From the July 17 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Meanwhile, did you see these images that we showed at the beginning of our program today? There was some activists who blocked the doors to the ICE headquarters in Washington, D.C. They were trying to make a statement about the conditions at our southern border. They kept a lot of people from going to work yesterday, Tomi.

TOMI LAHREN (FOX NATION HOST): Well, the left has really demonized not only law enforcement but those immigration officers that are out there doing their jobs day in and day out. And I do believe it's a direct response to people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who go down to the border and they spread lies about not only our border agents but our immigration agents. And they've really normalized this whole thought of abolishing ICE and it's very problematic. And we're starting to see it more and more because of that. 


Brian Kilmeade defends Trump's migrant child detention, falsely claiming “we're not throwing them in cages”

Fox News has repeatedly blamed dangerous conditions at the border and in detention facilities on Democrats instead of on Trump’s policies

The DHS watchdog reported disturbing conditions at its detention centers. Fox News spent months describing them as humane.
