Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who attempted to spread anti-immigration fear among conservative spectatorsbefore the November election, is still at it.
On her display “The Ingraham Angle” Thursday, she tossed out a doozy on why Democrats oppose President Donald Trump’s promised multibillion-dollar margin wall between the U.S. and Mexico. Trump has refused to budge on the needs of the wall money, prolonging the government shutdownhe provoked.
Mark Morgan, chief of the U.S. Border Patrol in the Obama administration, reiterated his support for the wall to Ingraham on the indicate. He noted that many Democrats once favored a roadblock by voting for the Secure Fence Act of 2006.
However, that was far less substantial than what Trump craves. The measurement called for 700 miles of fencing along the border, more checkpoints and advanced surveillance technology such as spacecrafts and dronings, The Washington Post noted. Trump himself has called the 2006 barrier a “nothing wall.”
“Is it the size and the high levels of the barrier that now stimulates it immoral? ” Morgan asked on Ingraham’s show, in a clip provided by Media Matters.
To which Ingraham responded: “It’s political, it’s 2020. They think they can flip governments with a massive immigration upsurge, illegal, legal, into the United States. They’ve done it with California, in part, and they think they’re gonna do it with other states.”
