On Thursday, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson weighed in on “Outnumbered” on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., demanding reparations for migrants due to the handling of the border by the Trump administration. Also this week, Ocasio-Cortez objected to calling the influx of migrants a “surge,” saying it sounded “militaristic” and promoted a “White supremacist idea-philosophy.”
A ‘concentration camps’ is how she called described the border facilities under Trump, but hasn’t said anything like that since Biden took over and the problem got worse.
Carlson advised and described the New York congresswoman as “totally reckless” and an open “racist,” and the key to thinking clearly about the worsening immigration crisis is to discern “what’s best for the United States.”
“Obviously the border policy now is a disaster,” he said. “To be fair, it’s been a disaster for a long time. It doesn’t serve the interest of most Americans. And it won’t because people like that use the magic word, which is ‘racism,’ to cow the rest of the country into submission. She wants to change the population, she wants her party to be more powerful, I get it. But we’re allowing her and people like her to do that because we’re afraid of being called names.”
“Until decent people shed their fear of being smeared by someone whose opinion you really shouldn’t care about, we’re never going to have a rational immigration policy that helps everybody,” said Carlson.
Carlson also noted that the migrant crisis doesn’t help the countries from which they are fleeing, either. “How does it help Ecuador or El Salvador or Guatemala, or any of the countries from which these people are coming, to have your most ambitious people leave? It’s a disaster for them, too, and for us. It doesn’t help any good person to have this kind of uncontrolled migration into our country.”
“I don’t care what whatever that woman’s name is thinks,” Carlson concluded in reference to Ocasio-Cortez. “And no one should care what she thinks.”
Ocasio-Cortez recently opined on the border crisis, claiming it is racist to use the word “surge” to describe the surge of illegal immigrants flooding the border since President Joe Biden’s inauguration. As The Daily Wire reported.
