VIDEO: Tucker Carlson Breaks Down Why Democrats Have Flipped on Undocumented Immigration

Right on the money.

Tucker Carlson

In recent years, the Democratic Party has become more and more in favor of open borders and protecting illegal immigrants from the very laws of our immigration system designed to keep both our citizens and our resources safe and secure.

The left tends to try justifying this shift in principle with the guise of “compassion,” but is that really always the case?

Fox News host Tucker Carlson has created a new Prager University video called “Illegal Immigration: It’s About Power,” where he dives deep into the shift from being against mass immigration to the acceptance of it by the Democratic Party and why it happened.

“I recently watched a group of protestors, most of them young, denouncing President Donald Trump’s immigration policies,” Carlson says. “They were waving Mexican flags and shouting: ‘¡Si, se puede!’—’Yes, we can!’ This is now the rallying cry of the open-borders left, but it wasn’t always. In fact, I wondered if a single person at the protest knew where it came from.”

Carlson explains how the slogan was first promoted by the founder of the United Farm Workers union Cesar Chavez. The Progressive hero opposed illegal immigration so much he would send his men into the desert to assault illegals trying to get into the country because he reasoned that they would cause wages to drop for legal immigrants.

“Until recently, most Democrats agreed with Chavez,” Carlson continues. “They opposed unchecked immigration because they knew it hurt American workers. And they were right.”

He explains, “One study by a Harvard economist examined the effects of the mass migration of Cuban refugees to this country in 1980—the so-called Mariel boatlift. He found that American workers in Miami with a high school education saw their wages fall by more than thirty percent after the refugees arrived. If you believe in supply and demand, this is not surprising.”

Carlson points out that as recently as 2006, the Democrats were in favor of building a border wall and for enforcing the immigration laws.

“So, what changed?” Carlson continues, “Not the economics of it. The law of supply and demand remained in effect. It’s not a coincidence that as illegal immigration surged, wages for American workers stagnated. What changed is that Democrats stopped caring about those workers. About the middle class, really.”

It’s unfortunate, but the left doesn’t seem to really care about these individuals so much as they see them as means to an end. Immigrants provide new lifetime Democrat voters, which in turn means the left gets to retain political power.

No longer are immigrants people, but votes to be had.

Hopefully that will one day change.

Ilhan Omar Comes UNGLUED, Pushes Bold-Faced Lie That U.S. Is Behind Child Murder At the Border

WTH!?

Illinois freshman Democrat Lauren Underwood blamed America for the deaths of child migrants at the southern border. More on her below. She’s lied bigly before, too. WATCH: WATCH: After a dispute over comments by Rep. Underwood about the Trump admin. and the deaths of migrant children at the southern border, Republicans voted to have her comments removed from the record. https://twitter.com/MSNBC/status/1131330661367865346?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131330661367865346&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F05%2Filhan-omar-accuses-us-of-atrocities-on-border%2F Fellow radical freshman Ilhan Omar (MN) parroted Underwood’s words in a very ugly way. How many more children must die before we address the atrocities our country is committing at our southern border? https://twitter.com/IlhanMN/status/1131701844324102144?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131701844324102144&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F05%2Filhan-omar-accuses-us-of-atrocities-on-border%2F This is beyond the pale, even for Omar. After Ilhan said gruesome things about the United States as it relates to Venezuela, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley went after her pretty hard. WATCH: WOW: @IlhanMN says the U.S. has “helped lead the devastation in #Venezuela,” and accuses the U.S. on “bullying” the Maduro regime. Apparently Maduro’s starvation of his people and armored trucks running them over in the streets is not worthy of criticism in her eyes. https://twitter.com/thejcoop/status/1123676951573561345?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1123731527261720576&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F05%2F01%2Fbrutal-nikki-haley-lowers-the-boom-on-rep-ilhan-omar-and-her-support-of-the-maduro-regime%2F Enter Haley: [email protected] the avg Venezuelan adult has lost 24 lbs.

MUST SEE: Pro-Trump Jon Voight Stands Up For the Greatest President Since Abraham Lincoln

BOLD!

Jon Voight don’t care. He’s not intimidated by the far-left wing of Hollywood. He is accomplished. He’s proud to stand for the flag and supports President Trump. In a two-part Twitter video, the actor made it clear that he believes 45 is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. From Fox News: Actor Jon Voight expressed his support for President Trump, declaring him “the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln” in a two-part video message posted on Twitter on Friday night. Voight said, “I know that you’ll agree with me when I say that our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy for he’s battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. … Our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln.” He continued, “Don’t be fooled by the political left because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president, let us stand for this truth that President Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. God bless America.” PART I: https://twitter.com/jonvoight/status/1132093445743489024?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132093445743489024&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-jon-voight-releases-video-to-my-fellow-americans-calling-trump-the-greatest-president-since-abraham-lincoln%2F PART II: https://twitter.com/jonvoight/status/1132094914026770432?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132094914026770432&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-jon-voight-releases-video-to-my-fellow-americans-calling-trump-the-greatest-president-since-abraham-lincoln%2F Kelsey Grammer is far from the only conservative star in Hollywood, but like Voight, he’s one of the few willing to talk about his beliefs. It couldn’t have been easy working on “Cheers” with so many far-left radicals like Woody Harrelson and Ted Danson all of those years, but Grammer came out unscathed. Now, the “Frasier” star is taking a stand for President Trump by blasting the past 60 years of “clowns” running the nation. From Daily Wire: One of the few Hollywood conservatives, Kelsey Grammer of TV’s “Frasier,” is singing President Trump’s praises for doing more in 60 years than…
