TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): This has been going on for a long time, it's always been disgusting. But now it's a threat to our country and that's not an overstatement. In a year where tens of millions of Americans could be looking for work, our government is importing more than 150,000 workers from abroad. And that's without counting thousands of H-2A agricultural workers who will be coming as well. The president needs to stop this from happening and he can. If President Obama was able to ignore existing immigration law and create DACA, and he did, then certainly the current president has the power to cut legal immigration in order to protect the nation. And, in fact, American law gives him explicitly this right. 


Now we're facing an immeasurably greater crisis than terrorism. We're facing a global calamity that could wreck our economy, fracture our society 'cause that's always a byproduct of it, erode our rights, shatter our institutions, transform this country into a poor country. A has-been ex-superpower beholden to China. That could happen. Preventing that from happening is the most important test this president or any president in our lifetime will face. The time to placate corporate interest looking for low wages at all costs has passed, we need to stop this.
