TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Our leaders demand that you shut up and accept this. We have a moral obligation to admit the world's poor, they tell us, even if it makes our own country poorer, and dirtier, and more divided. Immigration is a form of atonement.
Previous leaders of our country committed sins -- we must pay for those sins by welcoming an endless chain of migrant caravans. That's the argument they make.
What is more predictable is how leaders of the caravan are starting to talk. Suddenly, they sound like community college professors from Long Beach. Entitled, cut off from reality, and highly aggressive.
Yesterday a group of leaders of the caravan marched into the U.S. consulate in Mexico, and demanded $50,000 to return to their own countries.
Huddled masses yearning to breathe free? Nope, cynical shakedown artists who have been watching too much CNN.
No surprise there. When rich liberals tell you that America owes you a comfortable life, nobody should be shocked when you believe them.
