The lawyer then went on to say that it should be about embracing the fact that everyone can be American. Tucker was not having it. Taking the opportunity to remind Vargas that he is not a citizen of the United States while demolishing his emotional argument with facts.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson dismissed on Monday an immigration attorney’s argument that all American residents should be given the right to vote, saying he was from a country “controlled by conquistadors.”
"I think it goes to the concept of citizenship. As a nation, we have matured from only free, land-owner, white people — to now women and African Americans," said Vargas, who is able to remain in the U.S. because he got a green card.
"Don’t hit me with the race crap," Carlson interjected. "As a citizen of a country controlled by conquistadors, don’t lecture me about this stuff."
"I must say, I don’t know what 'chutzpah' is in Spanish, but for you sitting here illegally and we’re not reporting you or having you, like, taken out by force...You’re telling me that the essence of our country is not the Constitution, it’s letting illegals vote?" Carlson said.
