Carlson: “You hear about those poor DACA kids a lot more, and that tells you everything”

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): We'll bet if we asked him, or any other pro-amnesty Republican on the hill, “What is wrong with enforcing immigration laws on the books?,” They'd tell you it's cruel to deport people who have lived here for a while.

Okay, that's a fair point. But it would be easier to take if our elite showed a similar concern for hurting American citizens, and there are many of those, like the one-in-four of working age who don't have jobs right now, or the 14 million on disability, the one in six on antidepressants, the more than 50,000 who died of drug OD's -- that's just in the last year.

That's almost as many as were killed during the entire decade of the Vietnam War. You hear about those people occasionally here in Washington. You hear about those poor DACA kids a lot more, and that tells you everything.
