State lawmaker, Adam Kwasman, told a reporter of seeing a yellow bus full of kids. Their faces full fear. A reporter then pointed out Kwasman had not spied migrant children full of fear. It was a yellow school bus of YMCA campers. The lawmaker apologized, but added the kids quote, "were sad, too." It's MORNING EDITION.
