MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle blamed US immigration policies Friday on the possibility of creating “Terminator-like characters that will seek vengeance.”


Guest Dana Sinpoli discussed the possible effects of abandoned children.

Ruhle then interjected, “Help us understand what this kind of damage does to these young people, because they are going to be a member of society.”

“It makes me think, where do you think MS-13 was born in Los Angeles,” Ruhle said, “where you often see these angry gangs sprout up, and I worry that you’re creating terminator-like characters that will seek vengeance. We must care.”

Sinpoli added, “We can even say the same thing about ISIS as well.”

Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Neilsen said earlier this week that 10,000 of the 12,000 children who are currently detained at the border were sent by their parents to travel without them. (RELATED: DHS Sec Explains Reality Behind Children In Detention Centers)

A photograph of a young girl crying at the border has spun an out of control narrative, facing the cover of TIME magazine placed next to the president. It turns out she was never separated from her mother, as her father explained.
