Fox & Friends host: Migrant caravan could bring "diseases" to the United States

Brian Kilmeade: "What about diseases? I mean, there's a reason why you can't bring a kid to school unless he's inoculated, you know?"

From the October 29 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

DAN BONGINO (NRATV): By simple numbers, if thousands of people enter unvetted at any time, you're going to have people enter the country that shouldn't be here. That's not a fear tactic, that's just the truth, and I'm glad you brought that up.

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): What about diseases? I mean, there's a reason why you can't bring a kid to school unless he's inoculated. There's things that happen in this country. We already give 40 to 50 percent of our taxable income to the government for social programs. Is it too much to say that we just can't have countries, entire populations come in here without being looked at as hard-hearted? To me, it's a practical way of having a nation that everyone looks up to and wants to be a part of. That's part of the reason why America's America. There's a process.
