MICHELLE MALKIN (CRTV HOST): In terms of refugee reforms, basically I think we should have a moratorium. There are so many communities across this country that have become dumping grounds for refugees who are not properly vetted and who have shown none of the qualities that we want in the people who come here: a sense of assimilation, attachment to western and American principles -- and it's that kind of vetting that the Trump administration has called for ever since President Trump came into office, and what did they get from it? They get ostracism, they get attacks by the media, by the open borders left and right for being, quote unquote, "racist" and "xenophobic" and "nativist," when all we're doing is trying to make sure that our immigration policies -- whether we're talking about the border and making sure that illegal aliens are not allowed into the country in droves without the proper vetting, or whether we're talking about the refugee program, legal immigration programs, and temporary visas -- every step of the way we have to make sure that we have control over the process. And clearly, when you look at what's happening across the country, particularly with the targeting of ICE agents, we are in a state of anarchy and the White House is trying to reign that in against all of these forces that are against securing our borders.
