“Fox and Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade on Friday compared the current situation at the border to the 9/11 terror attacks.
“There are times when Democrats and Republicans come together. When the market fell apart in 2008 and after 9/11, this is almost like that at the border,” Kilmeade said.
This came a day after President Donald Trump introduced a new immigration proposal calling for the implementation of a merit-based system that would prioritize granting entry to young, “highly skilled” people.

“Fox and Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade on Friday morning said the current situation at the US-Mexico border is “almost like” the terror attacks on September 11, 2001, and the market crash of 2008 that fostered the Great Recession.

“There are times when Democrats and Republicans come together. When the market fell apart in 2008 and after 9/11, this is almost like that at the border,” Kilmeade said in reference to surging numbers of migrants at the southern border.

“We have never seen these numbers before,” Kilmeade went on to say. “And the men and women who have to round up these illegals who want to become part of our country are saying please help us. They could actually get something done now, please go behind closed doors and do it.”

Kilmeade’s comparison of the border situation to 9/11 came a day after President Donald Trump introduced a new immigration proposal calling for the implementation of a merit-based system that would prioritize granting entry to young, “highly skilled” people as opposed to those with family ties in the US.

“Our plan achieves two critical goals,” Trump said on Thursday. “First, it stops illegal immigration and fully secures the border. And, second, it establishes a new legal immigration system that protects American wages, promotes American values, and attracts the best and brightest from all around the world.”
