Tucker Clashes With Immigration Activist Jose Antonio Vargas [VIDEO]

Christian Datoc Audience Development Manager

Jose Antonio Vargas, founder and CEO of Define America, made several, contradictory arguments during his Tuesday interview on Fox News, for which host Tucker Carlson proceeded to take him to the cleaners.


“What is your point?” The Daily Caller founder eventually posed to Vargas. “You’re throwing around, ‘America was bad, we had slavery.’ I’m not disagreeing with that. What does that have to do with illegal immigration?”

“Tucker you’re confused because you don’t deal in context,” the immigration activist countered. “You’re confused because I don’t think you understand the true history of this country. We are here because you were there. That’s why we’re here.”

“What are you saying?” Carlson justifiably asked. “People expect a rational argument from you. What is it?… Listen to yourself.”

Vargas would go on to point out that he is an “undocumented entrepreneur who employs people. I employ 14 United States citizens.”

That statement proved to be too much for Carlson, who proclaimed he wants “to go to the Philippines and brag about being illegal and see how long I can stay out of jail.”
