Tucker Carlson: Ilhan Omar ‘A Symbol of America’s Failed Immigration System’
During a segment on immigration tonight, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson swiped at Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and called her “a symbol of America’s failed immigration system.”
Carlson mocked the media reaction to President Donald Trump talking about “merit-based immigration,” saying, “Much of the world would move here if they could. Hundreds and hundreds of millions of people. So why wouldn’t we pick the absolute best?”
He ripped Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s comments in particular, and said the liberal argument is a system where “foreign-born worker bees toil to support a smug and pampered managerial class of which they, of course, are part.”
At one point he brought up Omar:
“For the left, whether the country benefits is not the point. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar––herself a symbol of America’s failed immigration system if there ever was one, someone who hates this country coming here at public expense––spent yesterday demanding the abolition of ICE, the decriminalization of illegal immigration itself, and an end to all deportation programs. She demands open borders, the unlimited arrival of anyone who wants to come to America, whether they have anything to contribute or not, and by the way you get to pay for it. And if you don’t want to, you’re a bigot.”
