Christian TV host defends putting immigrant children in cages: They’re ‘engaging in sexual activity’

During the Faith & Freedom webcast this weekend, host Leigh Valentine gave her thoughts on the Trump administration’s policy of separating immigrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. According to her, they’re all “unclean” and “murderous” criminals.

During the segment flagged by Right Wing Watch, guest host Chris McDonald slammed CNN reporter Jim Acosta over his recent confrontation with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on family separations, and declared that the policy “is not America’s fault.”

“It’s [the immigrant’s] fault,” McDonald said. “If you are here illegally, guess what? Your family is at risk of being broken up because that is what happens in a law-abiding society.”

Valentine then claimed that she had a conversation with a border patrol agent who said people who cross the border illegally are the lowest of the low.

According to her, immigrants crossing the border are committing “rape after rape after rape.”

Then she made the following bizarre and reprehensible claim:

“Children below 10 years old engaging in sexual activity — all kinds of sin and disgrace and darkness; the pit of the pits.”

“So we’re not getting the top-of-the-line echelon people coming over this border,” she said. “We’re getting criminals. I mean, total criminals that are so debased and their minds are just gone. They’re unclean, they’re murderers, they’re treacherous, they’re God-haters.”
