Tucker: The Left Sees Illegal Immigrants Voting as a Way to Obtain Power
Tucker Carlson said the left's rhetoric on illegal immigration has become "increasingly brazen," and their intentions are less disguised than they've ever been.
"In the Trump presidency, the mask is off. The left tells us that no illegal immigrants should ever be deported, even ones who have committed crimes. Not only that, they should be allowed to vote," Carlson said on his program Thursday night.
He noted that immigration advocate Cesar Vargas made the argument that undocumented immigrants should vote earlier this week, and Jennifer Palmieri, communications director for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, appeared to change her position that non-citizens should never be allowed to vote in U.S. elections.
"Would any other country tolerate that? Would that idea be taken seriously any place but in the United States?" Carlson said.
He noted that the Mexican Constitution explicitly states that foreigners should not in any way involve themselves in the political matters of the country.
"Only in the United States is there a different standard, and it's because the left sees the new standard as a way to obtain power and hold it forever."
