NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Fox News host Jesse Watters gained immense attention on social media after expressing his views on migrants fleeing their homes due to adverse weather conditions and shortages of supplies.
About 20,000 migrants have arrived in Chicago since August 2022, when Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott began loading them onto buses and shipping them to sanctuary cities.

After their arrival, large numbers of immigrants were forced to spend the night on the streets, in local police stations or at O’Hare International Airport.
But today, due to Illinois’ harsh winters, lack of infrastructure for migrants, and conflicting local support, many people who have braved the dangerous border crossing from the United States to Mexico have turned around and returned home, according to the Daily Mail.
What does Jesse Watters say about migrants?
On Monday’s “The Five,” the hosts were talking about furious migrants refusing to stay in shelter tents set up for them in New York, when the baton was passed to Watters.

“Kamala Harris said these migrants are arriving because of climate change. It was too hot in Latin America,” he said before bursting out laughing.

He then described the migrants as “snowbirds,” adding: “It’s 50 degrees and it’s like we’re going home.” Maybe they’re snowbirds. Gregory. Maybe they’re just stewing in Chicago and overwintering in Venezuela. RIGHT.”
“You know that Biden paid for their flights, their buses, why not? And those from New York. I’m with the judge. You can’t stay for free for a year in a $500-a-night Midtown hotel where we do your laundry and cook your dinners. And then we get a place in Brooklyn and they don’t want to bury themselves,” he continued.
He then said: “Yeah, oh, really sorry. Brooklyn is not suitable for you because it is too far from your work. Well, really, because only two percent of you apply for work permits. What work is too far from schools? Will they? You can also learn more about CRT in Brooklyn.
The Fox News host concluded by saying that American citizens are “very generous, but we also don’t like it when people are ungrateful.” “We feel that they are a little ungrateful. Greg, and I don’t like it,” he said.
Internet reacts to Jesse Watters’ remarks
Jesse Watters’ remarks received immense attention on social media, with several users agreeing with him.
“We, the people, will volunteer to expel them all!! » said one user.
“I once sponsored a Colombian for a job in the high-tech sector. He arrived legally, had a work visa and was legally a landed immigrant. After 1 winter, he returned to Colombia. Freedom doesn’t take the cold,” the second user wrote.
“What if they want here so bad???, and you want to go home right now?” Let’s do it,” said the third user while the fourth said “Great news…don’t come back.”
“You are right. The people who came now are not workers and are not looking for a better life. They are invaders, not refugees. It is well known that men from terrorist groups use Venezuelan passports and also empty prisons. This admin brought them here,” claimed the fifth user.
“I hope they kick them out of the hotels and they didn’t come because of climate change, they came to get everything for free like they do! » said one more.
