MARK STEYN: He said -- Chris Cuomo went on to say that the real problem is white supremacists in America, they are the real monsters, not these nice, hard-working illegal immigrants. And that may be well and true.
I mean, for the purposes of argument, let's just say he's right. It's irrelevant. The white supremacists are American citizens. The illegal immigrants are people who shouldn't be here. And every -- the organizing principle of nation states is that they organize on behalf of their citizens, whether their citizens are cheerleaders, or white supremacists, or whatever. You're stuck with them.
And this preference that Nancy Pelosi and Chris Cuomo and increasing people have for actually importing a class of citizen that they prefer to the ones they are stuck with is actually very revealing.
STEYN: The Democrats are getting very close to saying that foreigners are God's apology for Americans.
TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): That's exactly right.
STEYN: And Nancy Pelosi has explicitly said that we should thank the parents of these so-called "Dreamers," these DACA people for, bringing them here illegally.
And in fact, to go back to what your Swedish guest was saying, you know, whatever the economic benefits, which are minimal and are not evenly distributed, the cultural transformation, which is what is happening in Sweden, other parts of Europe, and it's what's happening in Arizona too -- that's forever.
In Arizona, a majority of the grade school children now are Hispanic. That means Arizona's future is as an Hispanic society. That means, in effect, the border has moved north, and the cultural transformation outweighs any economic benefits that that lady was talking about.
CARLSON: It's at the very least bewildering for people who grew up here, and that's real.
