Linda Sarsour to Chuck Schumer: 'I'm Tired of White Men Negotiating on the Backs of People of Color'
Controversial activist Linda Sarsour issued a warning to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) as Congress debates immigration reform.
“I’m talking to Chuck Schumer,” Sarsour, a co-founder of the Women’s March, said during a rally in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday. “I’m tired of white men negotiating on the backs of people of color and communities like ours. We are not bargaining chips. This is not a poker game.”
During the rally branded “A Day of Action Against Trump’s White Supremacy,” Sarsour called President Trump a "fascist" and compared Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to the Gestapo.
She also expressed support for amnesty -- not only for DREAMers but for all of the millions of people in the U.S. illegally.
Tucker Carlson reacted to Sarsour's comments on his program Thursday night, pointing out that there are now more immigrants in the U.S. than at any point in our country's history.
"Is America more united than ever before? Is it stronger? Please, it's just the opposite. And everyone knows it," Carlson said.
He argued that's because our "elites" welcome immigrants to America by telling them how horrible the country is and how bigoted its native population is.
"We're creating a lot of Linda Sarsours. This is a recipe for civil war," Carlson warned, explaining that large, diverse countries need a reason to stick together.
"Our elites ought to be staying up late night after night every night trying to figure out what that reason is. Why should we hang together? A shared language, a shared culture, a shared set of core beliefs? Pick one. Our ruling class rejects all of those," Carlson said. "It won't end well."
