Fox News host Tucker Carlson halted a debate with a former DNC employee for bringing race into the conversation on Tuesday in regards to Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts who was murdered by an illegal immigrant.
“So, the line that the rest of us are kind of forced to accept is that, all immigrants are great people, better than us in fact. And that if we suspect otherwise, we are bad people. If we point to evidence proving otherwise than we are flat out bigots and we should be quiet,” Carlson began.
“Just this week we found out that a white man in Denver killed his wife and two beautiful young daughters. Also tragic, just as this young woman in Iowa whose death is a huge tragedy.”Luis Miranda, former DNC Communications Director, said.
“Luis, I didn’t say anything about this man’s race, the story is not about race. Don’t make it about race, stop that. I was saying this is about nationality and citizenship, this man had no right to be here. That’s the difference,” Carlson responded. “In the first place, he didn’t have a right to be here in the first place. He should not have been here, his presence violated federal law. You and your party tell us that we are racist for wanting to enforce our own laws. It has nothing to do with race. It has everything to do with whether we think laws are real, and some of us do.”
A Mexican national illegally residing in the U.S. has been charged with first degree murder in the disappearance and death of Tibbetts, officials said at a press conference at Poweshiek County Sheriff’s Office in Iowa Tuesday afternoon.
