Tucker Carlson Says Immigrants make the US "poorer, and dirtier..." We Disagree.

Companies have been pulling advertisements from Tucker Carlson's show on Fox News after Carlson's disturbing comments on immigration. The host made comments indicating that immigrants make the United States "poorer, and dirtier, and more divided."

Carlson was saying that political leaders act as if immigration is like "atonement" and refuse to look at the economic implications. Carlson argues that the United States is getting floods of people with low education and skilled workers just aren't most immigrants.

Carlson said, dripping with sarcasm, "We have a moral obligation to admit the world's poor they tell us, even if it makes our own country poorer, and dirtier, and more divided...immigration is an act of atonement...Previous leaders of our country committed sins. We must pay for those sins by welcoming an endless chain of migrant caravans."

Here at the Hacking Immigration Law, we are deeply disappointed in these comments and recognize the ignorance and vitriol in such statements.

First, we are proud supporters of immigrant workers and have many H-1B clients. The unique perspective of an immigrant brings advancement and opportunity for growth in specialty occupations and US based companies should be proud to sponsor immigrant employees' work visas.

And second, education is not the only factor, nor should it be the most important factor about who is welcomed into this country. Atonement is not the reason for granting political asylum or taking an interest in helping those in need--compassion, plain and simple, is the main and most endearing reason for immigration.

We are all citizens of the world and standing by, watching in idle, as natives of other countries are persecuted for race, religion, gender, etc. is a heinous crime against humanity.

Do we need to remind Tucker Carlson of the words on the Statue of Liberty? "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."
