From the February 7 edition of Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight:

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Maybe some say they are lazy, I don’t think that’s the explanation. I think they just didn’t care, they didn’t care about law, they didn’t care about following the rules in a country that’s not theirs and so they didn’t and I think that’s worse than laziness honestly.

[…]

The point is they didn’t sign up, so what were they afraid of? The Obama people were like, we’re helping you, give you a translator and you still won’t do it, why? Because you don’t care, that’s why. You don’t care about being legal. What’s the other explanation?
