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.

National Border Patrol Council Local 2554 is proud to represent 630 border patrol agents in Calexico, El Centro, and Indio, California. Thrasher Coffee has now become the official coffee of Local 2554. Thrasher is behind hot blends such as “MAGA” and “Border Blend.” A pro-Trump agency working with a pro-Trump coffee company? WIN, WIN, WIN! Check out some of the AMAZING pictures posted by Local 2554… While Local 2554 can’t speak on behalf of the entire National Border Patrol Council, they are proud to be drinking Thrasher Coffee. Now, we need to spread the word to make Thrasher Coffee the official coffee of every local border patrol outlet. Could you imagine how crazy this would make the left if they ever found out? They’d absolutely lose their minds. Mike Matzke, president of NBPC Local 2554, stated the following: Dear Members of Thrasher Coffee: National Border Patrol Council Local 2554 represents the 630 Border Patrol Agents that work in Calexico, El Centro, and Indio California. These agents work on the border every night and it is imperative that they be alert to stay alive and protect our country. Our union office is a 24/7 that is on call when our agents get into use of force incidents. I have recently tried your MAGA and Border Blend coffees and I believe TThrasher Coffee and NBPC Local 2554 would work well together. Our union office is stocked with many coffees but I believe your border blend represents a topic that is near and dear to El Centro Sector Border Patrol Agents (I have included some pictures). I would like to make Thrasher Coffee the official coffee of NBPC Local 2554. […] We would like to thank Thrasher Coffee for the important work you do and your obvious support for the President of the…

REPORT: Last ISIS Stronghold In Syria Liberated, Caliphate Destroyed [Developing]

All Trump, all day!

The day Donald Trump was elected president, bad guys the world over shook in their boots. They knew from that day forward, America would no longer take a reactionary stance, rather, she would be pro-active when it came to defeating evil. The bottom line is that the Trump administration is getting things done. It’s that simple. Here’s yet another example… From Daily Wire: The ISIS caliphate in Syria has reportedly been destroyed as the Islamic terrorist organization’s last stronghold in Baghouz, Syria has reportedly been liberated as an official announcement is pending. Fox News notes that the severe devasation in the area lasts for miles and that local fighters “are all so grateful to the U.S., not just for their help in the battle, but now for its decision to leave troops here when it’s done.” Trump tweeted the following: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108479818000224256?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1108479818000224256&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F44949%2Fbreaking-last-isis-stronghold-liberated-caliphate-ryan-saavedra Check this out from National Security Adviser John Bolton: https://twitter.com/ABCPolitics/status/1104737401165897733?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1104737401165897733&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F44949%2Fbreaking-last-isis-stronghold-liberated-caliphate-ryan-saavedra In 2016, Ilhan Omar was elected to Congress. That year, nine Minnesota men were charged with plotting to join ISIS. Omar, who has blasted Israel for a good long while and has been photographed with some questionable personalities (as you’ll see below), asked the judge to show “compassion.” Compassion for men who want to join ISIS, huh? Wild. From Fox 9: The 9 Minnesota men charged with planning to join ISIS are scheduled to be sentenced next week. Ahead of those court dates, 13 letters were sent to Judge Michael Davis in the case of defendant Abdirahman Yasin Daud, including a letter from state Rep. Ilhan Omar, who on Election Night became with first elected Somali-American lawmaker in the nation. Rep. Omar asked Judge Davis for “compassion” and a “restorative approach to justice,” concluding that “this ruling can set a precedent and has the potential to be a landmark…
