Watch video: House District 48 candidate wants 'camps' for illegal immigrants

11

August

A candidate for House District 48 says that illegal immigrants are such a problem for Florida that "camps" should be built to house them until they can be sent back to their homeland.

"You don't need to think of them as prisons or as luxury accommodations, just regular homes like a lot of poor people live in," said Marg Baker, who's seeking the Republican nomination for the statehouse seat that covers much of northern Pinellas County.

"Collect enough illegal aliens until you have enough to ship them back. E-verify … but we have got to get the illegal immigrants off the streets."

Update: Baker's remarks earned her a spot as Keith Olberman's Wold's Worst Person on Thursday night.

Watch the video, then share your feedback. Note: Baker's remarks about camps for illegal immigrants are near the end of the video (5:37).
