Tucker Carlson: Mexico is trying to “change the demographics” of America in order to sway elections
Carlson: "That's what it looks like when a hostile foreign power interferes in your democracy. They don't buy Facebook ads that nobody sees. Why would they? They try to change the demographics of your country. That works."

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): If you're looking for countries that really do influence American politics, there are quite a few. Anyone who lives in D.C. can tell you that. Russia does not make the list. Mexico definitely does. At the beginning of the past presidential election cycle, for example, Mexico began what Bloomberg News described as an unprecedented effort to get American citizenship for its permanent residents living here in the U.S. The point was obvious, of course, to make them voters so they could vote to defeat Donald Trump.
Russia never even considered election hacking that bold. Mexico did, and there's more.
Mexico has helped its citizens to break our federal laws. It's done that for years. The Mexican government published a pamphlet advising migrants on how to sneak into our country. The Mexican consulate in San Francisco distributed its 10 golden rules for the immigrants in the U.S. That paper instructed illegal aliens on how to avoid arrest and deportation. The Mexican government has paid lawyers to clog our courts in deportation cases. We could go on and on and on.
The point is, that's what it looks like when a hostile foreign power interferes in your democracy. They don't buy Facebook ads that nobody sees. Why would they? They try to change the demographics of your country. That works.
