ANDREW ARTHUR: Their ultimate goal is to come to the United States and live and work here permanently, and this is something that I saw when I was an immigration judge, with Somalis. It's just simply becoming a new group of nationals from Central Africa now, who have heard about how open the American borders are and who want to come and exploit them.
TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): The population growth in that part of the world; particularly on the continent of Africa, suggests that -- I mean, this -- this flood could become a torrent, no?
ARTHUR: Absolutely, and there's -- you know, without the support of our southern neighbors, in the absence of support from the United States Congress, we truly would just be overwhelmed with individuals, you know, from poor countries who have literally sold everything that they had to make the journey to the United States.
In fact, I think The New York Times reported one woman said she didn't have one dollar to her name by the time that she arrived in the United States -- but they do it because they know that they're going to come here and, you know, when looking at a U.S. wage every day, it's a smart economic decision to make. Until Congress acts, it's just going to continue.
CARLSON: Right, I would do the same. I don't judge them, I judge our leaders. This is -- it's going to overwhelm our country, and change it completely and forever -- and our viewers should know that.
