TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): The bill contains an amnesty provision for the duration of the coronavirus crisis. That's something they'd like to see extended a very long time, all illegal immigrants employed in so-called essential services would be shielded from deportation, and their employer would be shielded, too. People who hire illegal aliens could not be prosecuted. Now, don't be fooled, this is not about protecting physicians who are critical to providing medical care to the rest of us.
Current essential workers, as they are defined in this bill, is in fact an enormous category that spans almost every part of the American economy. It includes employees in food services, laundry, waste management, child care, agriculture, transportation, restaurants, as well as any retail worker in America who works at a location that sells food or beverages. This is a blanket amnesty for virtually every illegal alien who has already taken an American job, and once this amnesty is granted, it will never be taken away. Bet on that, no matter what they tell you.
Anyone who lives in Washington can confirm that. Once passed, it's not going away, and at that point there will be no more debate about illegal immigration. The issue will be settled permanently, and Democrats will win every presidential election for the rest of your life, the rest of your children's lives, the rest of your grandchildrens' lives.
