Sky News host Kay Burley was forced to intervene after Republican Lauren Southern, from The Rebel, a conservative Canadian media organisation, questioned why legal immigration “even exists anymore”.
In a discussion about Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and his promise to deport millions of illegal immigrants from America, she said: “Everyone seems to feel so bad for all these illegal immigrants and all these refugees coming in on boats.
“What about the people waiting five years to come in legally?
“I don’t know why legal immigration even exists anymore when I can just put on some bronzer, get on a dingy boat and just show up at the beaches of Sicily with the Koran in my hand.”
At this point, Burley was forced to interrupt, telling Southern: “No no, we are not saying things like that on my programme.”
