'You Don't Have a Right to Demand Anything': Tucker Blasts DACA Activists Shouting Down Pelosi
Tucker Carlson blasted DACA recipients and undocumented immigrants who were a part of a group of protesters that disrupted a Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) press conference.
Carlson debated DACA recipient Ivan Ceja, who said illegal immigrants who came as children are often taxpayers who "take great part in their community."
Carlson said DACA protesters showed a "lack of gratitude" for the United States taxpayer, and asked Ceja why he "has a right to demand anything."
He said that if this situation was occurring in any other country, the citizenry and government would tell the illegal immigrant to "buzz off."
Earlier Monday, DACA-supporting protesters appeared to commandeer a press conference being held by Pelosi, who tried multiple times to restore order.
Pelosi, standing alongside Reps. Barbara Lee and Jared Huffman (D-Calif.), started her press conference by saying that "DREAMers are an inspiration to all of us."
A short time into her remarks, several supporters of DACA stood up and began shouting at Pelosi.
"We undocumented youth demand a clean bill... We undocumented youth will not be a bargaining chip for Trump," the protesters shouted, according to KCBS.

"What is your answer, congresswoman?" one man yelled.
Pelosi then tried to bring the press conference back to regular order, telling the protesters that it is "beautiful to our ears" to hear their opinion.
When the protesters began shouting again, Pelosi herself raised her voice.
"Hey! If you don't-- Stop it! Stop it now! Stop it now!" she said.
The protesters began chanting "yes or no," apparently referring to whether Pelosi and Lee would support a clean DACA bill.
"This is our democracy. We did not vote for you or for any politician. We don't owe you nothing," the protesters shouted in unison.
