REP. PRAMILA JAYAPAL (D-WA): If you listen to your show, to people on Fox News, to Donald Trump –

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Oh, so you’re not saying that –

JAYAPAL: Hold on, Tucker, let me just finish my point. If you listen to just what's going on, you would think this family immigration system is somehow out of control. It’s not. It took me 17 years to become a U.S. citizen. By the time I could become a U.S. citizen, my parents were already very elderly and it would have taken another several years for them to come to this country.
