Fox News host Tucker Carlson obliterated Univision anchor Jorge Ramos in a fiery debate over sanctuary city laws in America.
During a segment Monday, Carlson debated Ramos over the case involving of Ivan Zamarripa-Castaneda.
As noted by the Daily Caller, Zamarripa-Castaneda is a 26-year-old illegal immigrant who killed a truck driver in a hit-and-run situation in Colorado.
The Denver Police Department refused to hand him over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents when they wanted to detain him.
Carlson asked Ramos about the case, and why he believed the U.S. should have sanctuary laws that protect illegal criminals like Zamarripa-Castaneda.
“I don’t know why you want to become state media,” Ramos said. “Because you are criminalizing majority of immigrants.”
“State media?” Carlson fired back. “I’m asking about this specific case.”
Ramos tried to pivot and critcize President Donald Trump, but Carlson refused to let him dodge the question.
“Spare me your Univision talking points. I’m asking you a question,” Carlson said.
“Okay, this is the argument,” Ramos conceded after trying to dodge the question again. “The argument is that the vast majority of immigrants, you have heard this argument, the vast majority are not criminals and are less likely to be criminals or behind bars.”
“But just to criminalize the entire immigrant population because of one person would be like if I were to criminalize the entire population because of Stephen Paddock.”
Carlson agreed that one individual doesn’t criminalize an entire race, but said Ramos failed to argue why the U.S. should have arbitrary sanctuary laws that shield illegal immigrants — particularly those with criminal records.
The Fox host said the U.S. should not be providing safe havens for illegal criminals and that “Mr. Neck tattoo” — referring to Ivan Zamarripa-Castaneda — should have been deported back to his country.
Many Americans believe the U.S. government shouldn’t allow far-left states to shield illegals from federal immigration authorities, especially those with criminal records.
Do you agree with Carlson that America shouldn’t have sanctuary laws?
