JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): I want to talk about the schools. This does not put America first, but what I worry about is next month when these migrant teenagers are forced into classrooms with American students. These are from countries -- these are impoverished nations, they don't have any formal education, they speak no English. They have been trafficked and have been traumatized, they have been separated from their families. And now they are going into a savvy, metropolitan high school area with no social skills to adapt to that situation. You're going to sit them next to students in an already crowded classroom. Let's say the classroom holds 30, now 35 students are going to be in the classroom. Five of those students aren't going to speak any English. They're not going to know what's going on in the classroom.

You don't think that's going to be disruptive to the class? You don't think that's going to take the teacher's attention and focus it on those students? That's not going to disrupt learning? That's not going to soak resources that should be going to American students? And have tutors and counselors focused on those students? Of course it is, and American parents were never given a choice. This was imposed on them by the cartels and by Joe Biden, who’ve lost control over our immigration policy. You ask any parent, do you want these people sitting to your students as a sophomore indebted to the cartels? Trying to work off cash somehow, wiring money back home, don't speak any English? Sexually traumatized, emotionally traumatized, physically traumatized, dragging down and slowing down the curriculum? Of course not. And I feel terrible for these migrants. Terrible. But I also feel terrible for the American students that are being subjected to this wave and wave and wave. 


JUAN WILLIAMS (CO-HOST): Some school districts have been doing this kind of thing for some time. And by the way, Jesse, English is a second language. You should get out and find out. That's in most schools. 

WATTERS: No. I understand but, Juan, they have no formal education. They don't have any English skills at all. 

WILLIAMS: You don't know that, Jesse. 


They're going to be sitting next to American students, they're very conversive, Juan, this is a very impoverished demographic, they come from an agrarian society. If you ask anybody --


WILLIAMS: You're just demonizing immigrants in this generation.
