Fox News host Laura Ingraham said the U.S. must start enforcing immigration laws “across the board” or risk creating a generation of entitled illegal immigrants, on “Fox and Friends” Tuesday.
“This is the problem with not enforcing the rule of law — if you don’t enforce it across the board, you’re going to create a generation of entitled people,” she said. “This is entitlement mentality for a whole new generation of people.”
Fox News ran a clip of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at a press conference in San Francisco, where illegal immigrants turned against her and began shouting their frustrations. Ingraham said they were biting the hand that’s feeding them and will probably never be satisfied.
“It’s like biting the hand that feeds you. Or you give some an inch, they take a mile. An inch across the border, then it’s a mile. Then we want rights. Then we want benefits. Then we want in-state tuition. Then we want free healthcare. Now we want grandma to come in,” she said.
Ingraham believes illegal immigrants don’t have any respect for America’s borders and display a lack of gratitude, despite being allowed to stay in the country temporarily.
“They don’t respect the borders of our country. They don’t respect borders in a public address. There’s not a great deal of gratitude for being able to stay in the country temporarily. Let alone a sense of what can we do to make it easier for you [Pelosi] to press our case,” she said.
“That image is terrible for those who seek amnesty for millions and millions of people who are living here and often times working here illegally. It’s terrible for their message. I think Nancy Pelosi realized that. She was caught there. She couldn’t get out,” Ingraham concluded.
