RUSH TRANSCRIPT CARLSON All ░░░░░░░░ we will get back ░░░░░░░░ our interview on the ░░░░░░░░ of DACA Henry Fernandez ░░░░░░░░ a fellow at the ░░░░░░░░ for American progress At ░░░░░░░░ of the biggest Progressive ░░░░░░░░ in Washington Washington The ░░░░░░░░ from sister organization Joins ░░░░░░░░ tonight Thanks for coming ░░░░░░░░ FERNANDEZ Thank so much ░░░░░░░░ having me tucker CARLSON ░░░░░░░░ all sent out a ░░░░░░░░ raising pitch recently just ░░░░░░░░ other day trying to ░░░░░░░░ Democrats to stiffen the ░░░░░░░░ of Democrats in the ░░░░░░░░ to resist any kind ░░░░░░░░ concessions on DACA And ░░░░░░░░ was this line which ░░░░░░░░ out it s something ░░░░░░░░ ve been saying on ░░░░░░░░ show but I ve ░░░░░░░░ heard anybody admit it ░░░░░░░░ loud The fight to ░░░░░░░░ dreamers is not only ░░░░░░░░ moral imperative it is ░░░░░░░░ a critical component of ░░░░░░░░ Democratic Party s future ░░░░░░░░ success We set a ░░░░░░░░ of times that the ░░░░░░░░ Party has basically given ░░░░░░░░ on the middle class ░░░░░░░░ favor of importing new ░░░░░░░░ and we are denounced ░░░░░░░░ all right for saying ░░░░░░░░ You were honest enough ░░░░░░░░ admit it in a ░░░░░░░░ raising pitch and I ░░░░░░░░ want to thank you ░░░░░░░░ that and for clarifying ░░░░░░░░ terms of the debate ░░░░░░░░ Obviously we don t ░░░░░░░░ at it the way ░░░░░░░░ do What we are ░░░░░░░░ clear is that there ░░░░░░░░ a tremendous amount of ░░░░░░░░ for fixing the DACA ░░░░░░░░ at President Trump created ░░░░░░░░ a clean dream act ░░░░░░░░ auto support your Fox ░░░░░░░░ polling says that over ░░░░░░░░ of Americans support making ░░░░░░░░ that we fix the ░░░░░░░░ that was created by ░░░░░░░░ Trump with regards to ░░░░░░░░ and make sure that ░░░░░░░░ young people can stay ░░░░░░░░ in the U S ░░░░░░░░ 80 of Americans support ░░░░░░░░ it makes a lot ░░░░░░░░ sense for elected officials ░░░░░░░░ all parties to stand ░░░░░░░░ the American people CARLSON ░░░░░░░░ but that s actually ░░░░░░░░ what the numbers show ░░░░░░░░ you break it out ░░░░░░░░ the terms that are ░░░░░░░░ under debate chain migration ░░░░░░░░ example that has very ░░░░░░░░ support from voters Most ░░░░░░░░ don t think you ░░░░░░░░ to be able to ░░░░░░░░ here illegally get amnesty ░░░░░░░░ then bring her relatives ░░░░░░░░ voters think we let ░░░░░░░░ many immigrants of all ░░░░░░░░ under all programs They ░░░░░░░░ not the diversity lottery ░░░░░░░░ are all things the ░░░░░░░░ support So actually on ░░░░░░░░ specifics the Democrats are ░░░░░░░░ the other side of ░░░░░░░░ opinion as you know ░░░░░░░░ Actually the polls at ░░░░░░░░ the foxhole which I ░░░░░░░░ going to assume you ░░░░░░░░ is reliable says very ░░░░░░░░ that what we are ░░░░░░░░ about here what is ░░░░░░░░ for debate in the ░░░░░░░░ what was actually stopped ░░░░░░░░ President Trump was DACA ░░░░░░░░ so we need a ░░░░░░░░ dream act That s ░░░░░░░░ popular The other issues ░░░░░░░░ you are raising are ░░░░░░░░ actually up for debate ░░░░░░░░ than that President Trump ░░░░░░░░ put them on the ░░░░░░░░ CARLSON You will concede ░░░░░░░░ most Americans don t ░░░░░░░░ we ought to come ░░░░░░░░ illegally and bring her ░░░░░░░░ with you They don ░░░░░░░░ FERNANDEZ I would concede ░░░░░░░░ if you concoct a ░░░░░░░░ that uses language like ░░░░░░░░ just used you could ░░░░░░░░ get Americans to agree ░░░░░░░░ many things but if ░░░░░░░░ look at polling from ░░░░░░░░ legitimate polling organizations that ░░░░░░░░ for voters specifically in ░░░░░░░░ what we are talking ░░░░░░░░ here which is that ░░░░░░░░ members U S Citizens ░░░░░░░░ be able to petition ░░░░░░░░ their family members to ░░░░░░░░ Visas to come to ░░░░░░░░ United States That s ░░░░░░░░ darn popular CARLSON So ░░░░░░░░ think that most people ░░░░░░░░ support giving amnesty a ░░░░░░░░ to citizenship for people ░░░░░░░░ illegally including the dreamers ░░░░░░░░ then say yes it ░░░░░░░░ okay to bring her ░░░░░░░░ here I just don ░░░░░░░░ think there s any ░░░░░░░░ that that s true ░░░░░░░░ let me ask you ░░░░░░░░ economic question The dreamers ░░░░░░░░ far less educated than ░░░░░░░░ random sample of American ░░░░░░░░ It less likely to ░░░░░░░░ from high school less ░░░░░░░░ to graduate from college ░░░░░░░░ less likely to be ░░░░░░░░ to read and write ░░░░░░░░ FERNANDEZ That s not ░░░░░░░░ CARLSON Actually it is ░░░░░░░░ FERNANDEZ To be eligible ░░░░░░░░ DACA you have to ░░░░░░░░ graduated from high school ░░░░░░░░ of Americans have graduated ░░░░░░░░ high school To be ░░░░░░░░ for DACA you have ░░░░░░░░ have graduated from high ░░░░░░░░ or be in high ░░░░░░░░ so that s 100 ░░░░░░░░ Or the equivalent FERNANDEZ ░░░░░░░░ we count Americans who ░░░░░░░░ graduated from high school ░░░░░░░░ include those people who ░░░░░░░░ a ged We are ░░░░░░░░ apples to apples CARLSON ░░░░░░░░ not actually the same ░░░░░░░░ is the migration policy ░░░░░░░░ holders are somewhat less ░░░░░░░░ of the U S ░░░░░░░░ of similar ages Far ░░░░░░░░ likely to completed college ░░░░░░░░ When you completed when ░░░░░░░░ look at college graduation ░░░░░░░░ are right CARLSON I ░░░░░░░░ I m right FERNANDEZ ░░░░░░░░ s understand exactly why ░░░░░░░░ is That s because ░░░░░░░░ college students I don ░░░░░░░░ mean to interrupt it ░░░░░░░░ your show but I ░░░░░░░░ to answer your question ░░░░░░░░ And I want to ░░░░░░░░ your answer FERNANDEZ Okay ░░░░░░░░ answer is that those ░░░░░░░░ people are often not ░░░░░░░░ to get things like ░░░░░░░░ state tuition or afford ░░░░░░░░ to college If they ░░░░░░░░ able to get green ░░░░░░░░ and then process to ░░░░░░░░ like other immigrants they ░░░░░░░░ get CARLSON If they ░░░░░░░░ more benefits FERNANDEZ Not ░░░░░░░░ CARLSON Yes they are ░░░░░░░░ I m sorry these ░░░░░░░░ people who aren t ░░░░░░░░ S Citizens they are ░░░░░░░░ here illegally and you ░░░░░░░░ saying with a straight ░░░░░░░░ that we have some ░░░░░░░░ and economic obligation I ░░░░░░░░ t believe that has ░░░░░░░░ support but perhaps I ░░░░░░░░ wrong FERNANDEZ I would ░░░░░░░░ point only to the ░░░░░░░░ from your own network ░░░░░░░░ led 82 of Americans ░░░░░░░░ CARLSON Right Laughs Actual ░░░░░░░░ I hear that every ░░░░░░░░ Mr. Fernandes, thank you.
