Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Wednesday regretted the demographic change in America due to immigration – including the arrival of legal immigrants.
“In some parts of the country, it seems like America we know and love no longer,” she complained to “The Ingraham Angle”.
She also condemned “massive demographic changes” that have been “foisted” on Americans.
Ingraham had previously discussed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and mentioned the recent comments of the Democratic Congressional candidate on the United States change. But while Ocasio-Cortez talked about changing economic realities for workers and middle class Americans, Ingraham used these remarks as a springboard for her immigrant rival:
Yet [Ocasio-Cortez] is kind of right in general. Because in some parts of the country, America seems to exist and does not exist anymore. Massive demographic changes have occurred in the American people. And they are changes that neither of us ever voted for, and most of us do not like. From Virginia to California, we see strong examples of how radically somehow the country has changed. Now much of this is related to both illegal and sometimes declining legal immigration that of course continues love.
The President can be so convincing, so give us the whole truth, Mr President, the good, the bad, and yes, the uncomfortable. This is a national emergency and he has to demand that Congress now act. There is something going away in this country and it’s not about race or ethnicity. It was once a common understanding of both parties that American citizenship is a privilege, and that at least requires respect for the rule of law and loyalty to our constitution.
Her full comments are available here.
Ingraham’s complaint against single legal immigrants did not go well on Twitter:
I’m a broken record about this but demographic anxiety and the nation’s changing face are much more motivating for republican voters behavior than esoteric principles of taxation and state size. August 9, 2018
The British descendants said that when the Irish came, the Irish said that when the Italians arrived, etc.

I beat what the first people (Indians) have and have thought about the same in the past three hundred years. They never asked for genocide of their own people by white settlers.

Massive demographic changes that the locals did not like? Tell the Indians ….

People like Laura Ingraham said the same when my Greek ancestors came to America in the early 20th century. We were for “ethnic” (read: dirty) for people like Laura, who never understood that America is an idea; and not a race, religion or political party. https://t.co/X2VCyrqp5F

Most of us? Speak for yourself. I like to live in a country celebrating DIVERSITY & I hope most Americans agree. My family (both sides) has been here since the mid-17th century, in addition to some Irish stragglers in the 19th century. Please leave. * Russia * waits so far away! BYE
