UPDATE (10/22/019): Has Tucker Gone Soft On Immigration, Which Is A True Existential Issue?

Has Tucker Carlson gotten The Talk from the bosses at Fox News? By The Talk I mean the injunction against discussing the national question: mass immigration and the survival of the majority that dare not speak its name.

The show today, 6/11/019, was vanilla—Tucker’s correspondent decamped to the the Dominican Republic, to check out the safety of the minibars, instead of to the southwest to check out America’s wide-open border.

Tucker then interviewed a legal immigrant with permissible views on immigration—legal good; illegal bad.

Tucker oozed praise for said legal immigrant with permissible views. (Which were not exhaustive, because Harvard’s George Borjas showed that immigration in its totality has become an economic drain, not only illegal immigration.)

And, a short time back, on the day President Trump declared we hunger for many more “geniuses” in this country (ask the IEEE how many American engineers are unemployed)—the 2nd item on the Tucker Carlson Show was the latest SAT swindle, as if the affirmative-action swindle that is college admission is anything new.

Immigration experts in-the-know, like the Federation for American Immigration Reform, understand that unfettered legal immigration, even more so than the illegal torrents—is what has transformed the country beyond the tipping point. (Read “Understanding Chain Migration.”)

By the way, Tucker and Dana Perino smirked about the overuse of the existential adjective. (The word “narrative” is way worse.) Existential is a nice adjective when used sparingly and judicially.

If anything is an is an existential issue it’s immigration, both kinds, but especially the legal kind. It’s the defining issue of our time.  That’s why, once-upon-a-time, a president even ran on the immigration platform.
