FOX uses ‘Children of the Corn’ graphic during report on kids of illegal immigrants

Conservatives are under fire again for mishandling their approach to the immigration issues facing America.

During a segment titled “The Grapevine,” Fox News referred to the offspring of illegal immigrants (undocumented workers to some) as “children of the corn” in a graphic prominently displayed in the top right corner of the screen.

Chris Wallace guest-hosted the Fox News “Special Report”, where he summarized a recent analysis by Los Angeles County estimating that illegal immigrant parents would receive $650 million in government assistance this year.

These children are considered US citizens, which was not a fact discussed during the report.

While Wallace speaks, a graphic appears with the title “Children of the Corn” — the title of a famous horror story by Stephen King that has been adapted to film.

No word on why the producers chose that title, though corn is traditionally an important element of the Mexican diet.

Wallace opens the segment by saying the figures amount to more “proof of the economic impact of the immigration debate” which many Democrats and progressives deny is a fact.
