Tucker slams GOP for colluding with Dems on immigration as ‘effort to disenfranchise’ voters

Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday slammed Sens. Thom Tillis and Kyrsten Sinema’s “bipartisan” immigration deal as an “effort to disenfranchise American voters.”

Announced earlier this week, the deal would grant citizenship to an estimated two million “Dreamers,” i.e., illegal aliens who arrived in the United States when they were under 18.

Speaking on Fox News’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the eponymous host warned that passage of the bill would only incentivize more illegal migration like the introduction of the Dreamers originally did back in 2012.

Listen to part one below:

“[O]n June 15, 2012 … Barack Obama walked into the Rose Garden and announced, full of self-confidence and coolness, that his administration decided actually not to deport millions of illegal immigrants. Henceforth, Barack Obama explained, these millions of people would no longer be identified, in fact, as ‘illegal aliens’ or even breakers of federal law, which everyone had assumed they were. No. Going forward, they would be called ‘Dreamers,'” Carlson explained.

“Over the decade before Obama’s Dreamer Rose Garden announcement, about 8,000 unaccompanied minors showed up at the U.S. border every year. After Obama redefined lawbreakers as Dreamers, more than 24,000 showed up. And that’s accelerated. Under Joe Biden, the number has grown to 130,000 per year,” he added.

Dovetailing back to the present, he said, “So by offering amnesty to Dreamers, what will happen next? Well, what happened last time? The U.S. Congress will incentivize more foreign nationals to flood into the country. And that’s the whole point of it. It’s why Obama did it a decade ago.”

Which raises the question of why in the world so many Republicans are reportedly going along with it.

“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, 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,” Carlson noted.

Continuing his remarks, the Fox News host warned Republican voters to be wary of the banana in the tailpipe.

In this case, the banana is the promise that, in addition to making Dreamers citizens, the “bipartisan” bill will also fund border security to the tune of $25 to $40 billion.

Carlson noted that this is far more than former President Donald Trump had sought for building the border wall, only to be rejected over and over again.

So why the change in heart? Because, he argued, all this money will be for naught if the Biden administration maintains its current lax illegal migration policies.

“You can build any structure you want. But if the officials manning the gates, like on January 6, just open the doors, it’s meaningless,” he explained.

Carlson then turned to remarks Tillis recently made in support of the deal.

“I’ve tried to tell anyone who thinks that we just need to find more computer scientists, more data analysts, more people with advanced degrees from the US population, that they need to wake up and recognize that if we want our economy to continue to grow, if we want to continue to build on this great economy, that we’ve got to look to legal immigration as a critical part of fulfilling our workforce needs and really growing our innovation economy,” he’d said.

Carlson was deeply unimpressed by this “word salad of phrases.”

“In the last two years, thanks to COVID and the manufactured response to it in this country, our public education system has completely collapsed. Kids are not being educated. We’re not producing programmers, partly because of policies that Thom Tillis stood by and allowed to be enacted under COVID. But rather than fix that, we need to legalize millions of Dreamers and give them citizenship,” he said.

“So if you really want a lot of computer programs — there are a lot of them around the world — you would make an active attempt to identify them and import them, and then you could tell us why. But to let in people without high school educations, by the millions, because we need more computer programmers. now you’re just lying to us, Thom Tillis. How stupid do you think we are? Pretty stupid, apparently,” he added.

Concluding the segment, Carlson then reminded viewers of just how many illegal aliens are sidling across the border into the U.S. on any given day:

“So most Americans, because this is a pretty big country, have no idea the scale of this. It has been going on for two years and it will completely change this country forever. And it’s continuing and nobody is doing anything about it and no one seems upset about it,” Carlson said.

Including Republicans like Thom Tillis, among others …
