Fox News’ Tucker Carlson took on Univision host Jorge Ramos over the migrant caravan on Monday — and Tucker used Ramos’ own logic on immigration against him.
Tucker wondered why the United States is obligated to take in the migrant when they could just as well stay in Mexico.
The Daily Caller co-founder said, “You’re a Mexican citizen! You voted in the Mexican presidential election. I just find it amazing that you can demand compassion from Americans…”
“I’m also a U.S. citizen,” Ramos said.
“I guess, but you voted in the Mexican election…” Carlson said.
“I voted in the Mexican election, and I voted in the U.S. election,” Ramos responded. “I know it’s confusing for you, but that’s what happens, and there are millions of people around the world with dual citizenship. I’m just one of them.”
“Yeah, well I’m opposed to it, if I can say that, for obvious reasons,” Tucker said. “But it’s just funny how, we have a moral obligation because we’re bad people to subsidize the rest of the world.”
“We do, because we’re the richest and the most powerful country in the world and many people want to come here and we are an example of democracy and generosity. I think that’s the right idea of America,” Ramos said.
“Talk about blaming the victim. Jorge, it was great to see you,” Carlson said.
