TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): This does seem like it's accelerating, the invasion of the United States from the south. 

STEPHEN MILLER (GUEST): Well, last year was the largest year for illegal immigration in American history and certainly in world history. And this year we're already seeing substantial, dramatic increases on top of last year's record breaking numbers.

So we're looking at many millions of unlawful foreign nationals seeking to enter this country without any legal permission whatsoever to completely change our country. And I think that if the American civilization falls because we had no border, history will record with the greatest astonishment that we barely even spoke of it. We barely even spoke of it.

Millions of workers are being displaced from their jobs, our taxpayers are being drained of their finances, our hospital and medical system is crashing, our educational system is being destroyed. It's not being destroyed for the reason that our students aren't performing. It's being destroyed because we're adding in students who do not speak their own language and do not write their own language at a proficient level and they don't speak our own language at all. And we can't keep up with that. 

And of course, the human casualties. Transnational murderous cartels are operationally controlling our border. They are murdering people on both sides of the border and their drugs are killing people in the prime of their lives and destabilizing the entire hemisphere. It is also the epicenter worldwide of child trafficking and sexual exploitation. All of this happening, barely without notice, barely without comment. A human tragedy and a historic tragedy, unrivaled in memory.
