TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): A number of Republican senators are prepared to cave completely to Democrats on this question agreeing to amnesty with no serious concessions in return.
One proposal would simply delay chain migration rather than ending it while expanding the scope of the amnesty for DACA recipients and reallocating diversity lottery visas to a different class of unskilled immigrants. Not only would a deal like that hurt the country, voters have said very clearly, again and again, they don't want it. And this is a democracy after all or at least it was. You have to listen to what voters want if you are a lawmaker.
If you see that kind of deal come out of Congress, and you may, the Republican Party is done, it's over, it's toast. it will be a short epitaph too, suicide.
