Laura Ingraham, the Fox News commentator and provocateur, says the “America we know and love” is disappearing because of demographic changes — due to both legal and illegal immigration.
Ingraham started out her show on Wednesday with a jab at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Ingraham played a clip of Ocasio Cortez talking about the changes to the Democratic party — Ocasio Cortez says that Democrats are now poorer and more radical than they were in the past, because the America of the 1990s doesn’t exist any more.
Ingraham pokes fun at some of what Ocasio Cortez says. You can watch the full video here.
Then, Ingraham says, she does agree with Ocasio Cortez on one point: America is changing. Ingraham says,
“In some parts of the country it does seem like the America we know and love doesn’t exist anymore. Massive demographic changes have been foisted on the American people. They’re changes that none of us ever voted for and that most of us don’t like.
From Virginia to California we see start examples of how radically in some ways the country has changed. Much of this is related to illegal – and in some cases legal – immigration that of course progressives love.”
Ingraham continued, “The president can be so persuasive, so give us the whole truth, Mr. President, the good, the bad, and yes, the uncomfortable. This is a national emergency and he must demand that Congress act now. There is something slipping away in this country and it’s not about race or ethnicity. It’s what was once a common understanding by both parties that American citizenship is a privilege, and one that at a minimum requires respect for the rule of law and loyalty to our constitution.”
