Fox News host Tucker Carlson did not mince any words on his show recently when addressing the current amnesty legislation in Congress. The deal was put together by Sens. Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), and it plans to put some 2 million of Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival recipients on the pathway to citizenship. Once their process is completed, these 2 million can sponsor extended family members, so we’re talking about millions of people.
Carlson spent about one-third of his show in a lengthy commentary explaining why Congress, specifically Republicans, are trying to ram this deal through.
Carlson gets to the meat of the issue: “We’re disenfranchising American voters with this amnesty move. We’re actively supplanting the current electorate with a new one that favors Democrats. And no, Congress won’t stop granting some of Obama’s DACA people citizenship because it will only incentivize more people to come, restarting this heinous process again in another generation or two.”
Carlson went further describing why Democrats want an even greater influx of illegal immigrants in the country and as citizens.
“Because the Democratic Party wants new voters, period. That’s not a racist conspiracy. No, it’s not. It’s true. And we know that it’s true not because we heard on Alex Jones, but because leading Democrats have said so repeatedly in public for years,” Carlson declared.
According to Axios, between 10 and 12 Republican senators could join this plan, and that would include names you’re probably familiar with: Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Mitt Romney of Utah. And as we said, Thom Tillis of North Carolina. Then several retiring senators — Rob Portman, Roy Blunt, Richard Burr — are also being courted to support the bill.
Who in the world thought it would be good for the GOP to do this now? The conservative base is demoralized after the midterm fizzle, and we are just a month away from at least having a majority in the House.
