President Joe Biden has faced frequent criticism from the right over his lax immigration policy and the ongoing crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border.
In his commentary this week, however, Fox News Channel personality Tucker Carlson added a new dimension by explaining what he said is a plan by the president to use illegal immigration to boost his own political power.
“The Democratic Party’s future electoral majority”
Thousands of undocumented immigrants could become a new Democratic-leaning voting bloc in the near future, Carlson asserted, noting that this was the likely motivating factor for the Biden administration’s open-borders policies.
His remarks came on the heels of disturbing images from Del Rio, Texas, that reveal thousands of Haitian migrants camped out underneath a bridge.
Carlson said that those individuals represent “the Democratic Party’s future electoral majority” if they are given the opportunity to live and vote in the United States.
“That’s what it really is, and that’s why they’re being protected,” he argued. “So they can do whatever they want.”
“You remember a free and egalitarian America”
Of course, Biden has the power to work with a Democratic majority on Capitol Hill to stop the influx of undocumented immigrants if he desired such an outcome.
In fact, he made it a cornerstone of his early days in office to roll back as many tough Trump-era border policies as possible.
“But what about you?” Carlson continued. “You’re an American. You were born here, you remember a free and egalitarian America, where the same laws applied to everyone no matter what color they were. What about you? Are you allowed this latitude? No. You’re merely in the way.”
To many Americans who desire consistent enforcement of immigration laws, it appears that Biden could not care less about citizens who are not going to vote for him or a fellow Democrat in future elections.
Given the steady decline of the president’s approval rating in recent months, Democrats are likely going to need every vote they can get in order to win races in many swing districts.
