Univision anchor Jorge Ramos said President Trump’s planned wall on the Mexican border is both racist and an affront to all Latinos.
Tucker Carlson debated Ramos on the topic, asking him why he locks his doors at night if he is against America having a proverbial door at its property line.
“That wall is not going to do anything to stop immigration,” Ramos said, adding that 45 percent of illegal immigrants come from visa overstays or on airplanes.
“Walls work in other countries like Israel,” Carlson said, asking if Ramos’ true fear is that the wall would be too successful.
Carlson asked if Ramos was consistent in his views, and left his home’s doors unlocked. Ramos said he did not.
“You just said you have locks on your doors… why do you lock your doors?” Carlson asked.
Ramos accused Carlson of using that line to imply that all illegal immigrants are criminals and that he was trying to echo President Trump.
He said Carlson and the rest of the population is “inviting” illegal immigrants by engaging in daily commerce.
Ramos said that by buying lunch, they are supporting illegal immigrants working in the kitchen, or that by purchasing lodging, they are supporting undocumented workers at hotels.
