CBS’ Gayle King Contrasts Treatment of Ukrainian Refugees to Migrants at US Border

Hanna Panreck, Fox News, March 9, 2022

CBS’ Gayle King, co-host of “CBS Mornings,” compared how countries are treating Ukrainian refugees fleeing their country and the threat of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the treatment of migrants at the U.S. border.

King asked guest Dave Miliband, president of the International Rescue Committee, why people coming from El Salvador and Honduras to the U.S. weren’t welcomed or “received very well” as the Ukrainians appear to have been. {snip}

“Its simple. There’s more fear of incorporating and integrating people from different races and different religions into national life,” Miliband said. {snip}

King said she believed “people need to be reminded of that.”

“You look at people coming from Haiti, people coming, as I said, El Salvador, Honduras. They were not treated this well. I think, we all want the Ukrainian people to be helped, everybody agrees with that, but there is enough pain to go around here,” she continued.
