This question already has an answer here:

I mean it would make sense if they couldn't but, how could the barrier tell the difference between a muggle born wizard and a normal muggle because i'm guessing people would tend to lean on the big pillars, and kids would fall on them..

    There are lots of spells that can detect whether someone has magic or not, e.g., the Muggle-repelling charms on Hogwarts. – Harry Johnston May 11 '18 at 23:58
  • Telling muggle from witch/wizard is one thing, muggle repelling charms and such exist, but a more interesting question would be how to get the barrier to tell a random-passerby-muggle from a muggleborn-parent-muggle. – Megha May 12 '18 at 4:37
