Tucker Carlson battled out the issue of immigration and demographic change with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, and his recent controversial statement about whose country it is. They debated Wednesday on Fox News.
“So, at an event several weeks ago in February,” Carlson began, “you said this and I wanted to ask you about it, and I’m quoting you, ‘I’m a proud Latino immigrant here in the United States. You know what is exactly going on here in the U.S.? There are many people who do not want us to be here, and they want to create a wall in order to separate us. But you know what, this is also our country. Let me repeat this, our country, not theirs. It’s our country.”
“Who is the ‘us’ and who is the “they”?” he asked, “Who’s country is it?”
“This is our country,” Ramos responded, “it is your, it is mine, and it is ours. And the interesting thing is that with the Trump administration and many people who support Donald Trump, they think it is their country, that it is a white country, and they are absolutely wrong. This is not a white country, it is not their country, it is ours, and that’s precisely what I’m saying.”
