Tucker Carlson has been somewhat restrained the past few weeks, perhaps because of all the left-wingers who have been trying to get him off the air. But on Tuesday, he came out swinging, passionately taking on the illegal immigration issue that sets lefties off.
One of the clips shown as evidence was of an illegal alien man who brought his kid along to assure his entrance to stupid-generous America — he will be rewarded financially for imperiling his boy when he should be prosecuted for child endangerment.
How backwards can government get? The United States is supposed to be the nation by and for American citizens; it is not the World Welfare Office for the moochers of the planet. When foreigners carry their homeland flags as they assault the American border, it is Invasion, not “migration.”
Below, Hondurans carry their national flag as the approach the US border, invasion style.
On Wednesday, Congressman David Schweikart (R-AZ) remarked in an interview with Stuart Varney, “If you’re from Phoenix, we’ve had almost 20,000 individuals dropped off at night in the center of our city — that’s a crisis.”
This morning, I joined @FoxBusiness to discuss the crisis we are facing at our Southern Border and how communities across Arizona are being impacted by the increase of migrants being released. Watch here ⬇️ pic.twitter.com/eTrzsndeBn— Rep David Schweikert (@RepDavid) April 3, 2019
Democrats and some Republicans are willing to put the future of this nation at risk for short term political or financial gain. President Trump has gone over to the dark side of increasing legal immigration even while automation is replacing more humans in low-skilled jobs every day. Does he really think his base will turn out to vote for him in 2020?
TUCKER CARLSON: Good evening and welcome to “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” Donald Trump ran on the promise that he would secure our southern border when he ran in 2016. He ran on other things, too — trade, Obamacare and ending the Iran deal, but it was immigration that resonated. No other candidate was saying anything like it. Voters loved it — that’s why they yelled, “Build that wall” at his rallies.
More than two years later, we have less control though over immigration into this country than we did the day Trump launched his campaign. Entire populations from Latin American are moving north. In February, authorities apprehended 76,000 illegal arrivals at the Mexican border, but last month that number had ballooned to 100,000.
They are coming because they know that they can come. Our current system can’t stop them. If illegal immigrants show up here with children, they are almost certain to be released into the United States. They will never be deported.
Close to 100 percent of children and families detained at the border last year are still here. It’s a scam. Before 2013, only one percent of aliens arriving at the U.S. border sought asylum based on credible fear in their home countries. Now, more than 10 percent do. They know the script. Even CNN can’t lie about it anymore.
Yesterday, to his credit, one of their anchors went to the border and talked to people trying to cross illegally into the U.S. Watch this conversation. It is the most honest thing that has run on CNN in a long time.
CNN ANCHOR CHRIS CUOMO: Why did he take his kid with him to come here if it’s just to work.
ILLEGAL ALIEN: [Speaking SPANISH].
TRANSLATOR: As what you and I were talking about, he says that if he comes here with his son, then he is allowed to stay. He thinks he is allowed to stay.
CUOMO: He think he is allowed. . . He says it is word of mouth.
TRANSLATOR: Coyotes, smugglers, word of mouth.
CUOMO: The smugglers are telling him, you bring your kid, you can get in.
CARLSON: If he comes here with his son, then he is allowed to stay. Our current political class has spent years pretending that is not true. In villages across Central America, they know it is true. Come to America and bring your kids, free schools, free healthcare, higher wages. They can’t kick you out.
If you lived in Honduras, you would come here, too. We are begging them to come here. No wonder immigration is out of control. They know that we are happy to give our country away as we are.
Our lawmakers are allowing this to happen. They could close the loopholes that allow it in about an hour, but they haven’t done that. They likely won’t do it. They show no interest in the effects this invasion is having on normal Americans — the suppressed wages, the stolen identities, the clogged emergency rooms and failing public schools, the fentanyl crisis. They don’t care.
The Chamber of Commerce tells us that everything is fine. Just yesterday, they attacked the White House for even suggesting we might have to shut down the border to protect the country. Guacamole prices might rise. Democrats, meanwhile, rejoice in the scale of this disaster. More illegal immigration means more power for them. They are actively for it.
Everyone running for the Democratic nomination agrees on this.
MSNBC ANCHOR CHRIS HAYES: If you could, would you take the wall down now here?
BETO O’ROURKE: Yes.
HAYES: Like you have a wall.
HAYES: You’ll knock it down.
SEN. ELIZABETH WARREN: Offer a home to refugees. That is who we are. That is our values. That’s part of what we do.
JULIAN CASTRO: So, instead of building a wall or closing the border, we should choose compassion instead of cruelty.
SEN. KAMALA HARRIS: We welcome refugees and bring people out of the shadows.
SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Spending as a down payment $5.7 billion on a wall is not an effective use of tax dollars when we talk about border security. There are better ways to do it.
SEN. KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND: Immigration is not a security issue. It is an economic and a humanitarian and family issue. There is no such thing as an illegal human.
CARLSON: There is no such thing as an illegal human says the sitting United States Senator. So no, Congress is not going to fix this. Our big cities won’t help. They are all sanctuaries for illegals now. The Courts aren’t helping, it’s not their job to protect the border anyway, it’s the job of the Executive Branch, it always has been. So how are they going to fix this?
