Fox & Friends' Brian Kilmeade is worried about 'diseases' the migrant caravan might bring

Fox News' Brian Kilmeade has a new simile for the migrant caravan headed toward the United States: They're just like unvaccinated children.

On Monday's Fox & Friends, Kilmeade said one of his biggest concerns about the group, still hundreds of miles from the U.S.-Mexico border, is the "diseases" the migrants could bring. "I mean, there's a reason why you can't bring a kid to school unless he's inoculated," Kilmeade said. He then wondered why those who want to block the caravan from entering are seen as "hardhearted," even though "we already give 40 to 50 percent of our taxable income to the government for social programs."

But "we can't have countries' entire populations come in" to America, Kilmeade continued, because keeping some people out is "part of the reason why America's America." There are an estimated 3,000-4,000 migrants in the group of mostly Honduran migrants, of the country's population of over 9 million. Watch the whole segment below. Kathryn Krawczyk
