Fox News host Tucker Carlson openly questioned the logic of low-wage immigration to the United States Wednesday.
“How can people get away with saying that low-wage immigration is an economic benefit to the united states? Are they lying or misguided?” Carlson asked Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies and Dan Stein of the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
Stein answered, “It’s about redistribution. The elites on top, the employers benefit from reducing wages and the American people, average Americans, American workers, what used to be the middle class, they get hurt, they are at the bottom. It’s a complete scam and everything about our labor force shifted to this postindustrial superpower information economy.”
Tucker added, “When you hear people defend it, what they’re really defending is their own prerogatives. When rich people defend this they’re basically defending it because they’re getting a lot out of it, but you’re not.”
