‘We Seem To Have Foiled This Attempt’: Fox News Reporter Confronts Migrants At Border

October 23, 2018 11:43 a.m.

Fox News’ Griff Jenkins intercepted a group of migrants attempting to cross illegally into the United States, according to a segment showing Jenkins’ work that aired on “Fox and Friends” Tuesday morning.

Introducing the segment, Jenkins said “yesterday, we laid in the bushes in wait, and we busted one of those smuggling operations.”

“We seem to have foiled this attempt,” Jenkins said in the report, after a raft full of people crossing the Rio Grande spotted him and turned around.

Jenkins also talked to another group of migrants accompanied by what seemed to be a Border Patrol agent. One woman identified herself as Honduran and said: “You cannot have work there because the criminals always will get your money.”

A Fox News spokesperson did not respond to TPM’s request for comment.
