(National Sentinel)Â Immigration Reformed:Â On his Tuesday evening program,Â Fox News host Tucker Carlson took President Donald Trump to task for appearing to agree to an immigration bill that would allow DACA recipients a clear path to citizenship, in exchange for nothing from Democrats who are pushing for that very thing.
“Congress is full of peopleÂ from both parties whoÂ believe that the point ofÂ our immigration policy is toÂ provide cheap labor to theirÂ donors and to atone for Americaâ€™s imaginary sinsÂ against the world,” Carlson said.
“They couldnâ€™t care lessÂ about immigrationâ€™s effectÂ on you or your familyâ€“these are the same peopleÂ the president now says heÂ trusts to write theÂ immigration bill, the oneÂ he will sign no matter whatÂ it says. So what was the point ofÂ running for president?â€
Continuing, theÂ FoxÂ NewsÂ host noted, “You will remember theÂ president also ran on hisÂ skills as a negotiator, andÂ he clearly has skills as aÂ negotiator. But where were they today?
“The president signaled heâ€™dÂ be happy to legalizeÂ hundreds of thousands ofÂ illegal immigrants now andÂ that at some point in theÂ future tackle all that otherÂ stuff like making sure theyÂ canâ€™t bring millions ofÂ their relatives from theÂ third world along with them. Thatâ€™s not much of aÂ negotiation,” he said.
“Amnesty for DACA recipientsÂ is the only leverage the White House has. Once the president agrees toÂ let them jump to the head ofÂ the line, ahead of millionsÂ of other people hoping toÂ come here legally, theÂ negotiation is over,” Carlson added. “At that point, why would Democrats agree to anything? Ending chain migration, theÂ diversity lottery,Â supporting a merit basedÂ system that might actuallyÂ help America? No chance.â€
The hosted noted further, “The Democratsâ€™ goal is toÂ import more DemocraticÂ voters, and by any meansÂ necessary. Once they retake the Congress and the presidency,Â and if Trump betrays his base onÂ immigrationâ€“thatâ€™llÂ definitely happenâ€“it isÂ over.
“Say goodbye to borders, they are done. Keep in mind that the top Democrat in the houseÂ recently thanked illegalÂ aliens for sneaking intoÂ this country. Thatâ€™s how Democrats feelÂ and theyâ€™re not pretendingÂ anymore,” he said.
Carlson then used a baseball analogy to describe what it means to be a supporter of the president.
“Being a Trump voter isnâ€™tÂ always easy, itâ€™s likeÂ rooting for the underdog inÂ baseball, the old Chicago Cubs. OnÂ one level there is pride,Â the pride that comes fromÂ doing something that fashionable people consider insane, andÂ thatâ€™s a good feeling.
“But thereâ€™s also someÂ disappointment along the wayÂ and honestly, there is someÂ embarrassment,” he continued. “But you silently bear itÂ because you know that when theyÂ finally win the World SeriesÂ it will be worth everythingÂ you went through. Every sarcastic dig fromÂ your brother-in-law at Thanksgiving will seem smallÂ by comparison. In the Trump presidency, the World Series is thisÂ immigration bill.
“Itâ€™s the big payoff, the whole point of theÂ exercise, and theyâ€™re not allowed toÂ blow it,” he concluded.
