(National Sentinel)Â Legal Immigration: On Tucker Carlson’sÂ Fox News program Friday night, he and conservative author, pundit and lawyer Ann Coulter discussed and debunked statistics widely cited by the ‘mainstream’ media that most Americans support so-called “Dreamers” — illegal immigrants brought into the country by their parents.
Slamming “phony polls” that purport to show that most Americans back liberal immigration policies, Carlson noted that many lawmakers, including a sizable percentage of Republicans, seemingly ignore Americans’ concerns on the issue.
â€œThereâ€™s a deeper question about democracy here,â€ Tucker said.
â€œSo, ifÂ the public has been clear inÂ poll after poll about what it wants and what it doesnâ€™t want on the question of immigration, and it wentÂ to the trouble of electing Donald Trump against all oddsÂ and all predictions, just toÂ express that view, and it stillÂ canâ€™t get what itÂ demonstrably wants in immigration, is it possible forÂ the public to have a say inÂ this?â€
â€œNo, itâ€™s amazing. I mean, it isÂ beyond what you justÂ described,â€ Coulter noted, as reported byÂ The Daily Caller.Â
â€œIÂ was looking through NexisÂ transcripts today. The fact that Donald Trump isÂ presidentâ€“it was utterlyÂ implausible. Itâ€™sÂ like a Hollywood movie. And this isnâ€™t the first time,” she continued.
“You keep hearing these phony polls being beingÂ cited by the media, showing that American love Dreamers! They love them! Just like that one you interviewed, who couldnâ€™t love her? They love them!â€
She went onto note that recent polling indicates that a majority of Americans want less immigration — legalÂ and illegal. Recently, the Trump administration “distributed a Harvard-Harris poll that showed Americans generally approve of the presidentâ€™s immigration plan, believe people should enter legally, and that those who are allowed in should contribute to American life in a positive way,” theÂ Washington Examiner reported.
“…[E]very time they have an actual ballot, every time, for 20 years now, [Americans] will vote against bail for illegals, against government services for illegals, theyâ€™ll vote for Donald Trump, theyâ€™ll vote for English as the national language,” said Coulter, author of several top-selling books including one on immigration called, “Adios, America.”
“This Harvard poll that just came out that shows more Americans would like zero immigration than our current immigration policy. But the way they pull off these phony polls, is by, I mean, I didnâ€™t need to read Saul Alinsky to know this is not a good way to take a pollâ€“they personalize it,” Coulter continued.
“They say do you want to support Juanita the maid? They make it about a specific person. No, I want questions like â€˜Do you want more or less immigration?â€™ â€˜Do you think people who break the law should be able to become citizens and start collecting welfare right away?â€™ â€˜Do you think we should we be dumping millions of low-wage workers on the country?’â€
Coulter then noted recent reports indicating that President Donald J. Trump may be supportive of a plan that gives many so-called DACA recipients -a slow but sure path to citizenship.
â€œWhich is going to come backâ€“I mean, Trump thinks heâ€™s a genius andÂ in some ways he is,â€ Coulter said. â€œHe has an uncanny sense for what are popular issues, thatâ€™s why he won. He may be able to roll over the never-Trumpers, but if he continues down this line, former-Trumpers may be a much more difficult category for him.â€
“We need an immigration time-out so we can assimilate those who are here, like we did throughout much of the 20th century,” editor-in-chief J. D. Heyes said.
