Tucker Carlson is sounding the alert about a troubling new bill now pending in Congress, a bill, he warns that will fundamentally transform the immigration system and our country.


Right now, immigrants who commit a variety of crimes can be deported.

This bill proposes to “entirely remake” that, Carlson explained, that would allow criminals to come and stay permanently. “Convictions should not lead to deportation,” the bill claims.

From Daily Caller:

“Under the New Way Forward Act, ‘crimes of moral turpitude’ are eliminated entirely as a justification for deportation,” said Carlson. “And the category of ‘aggravated felony’ gets eliminated too,” meaning “there will no longer be any crime that automatically requires deportation.”

Additionally, any crimes that do allow for deportation would require a prison sentence of at least five years.

“According to federal data, crimes like car theft, fraud, and weapons offenses all carry average prison sentences of fewer than five years,” he said. “And that’s just looking at averages. There are people who commit rape, child abuse, even manslaughter and get sentences of fewer than five years. Lots of them. If the New Way Forward Act passes, immigrants who commit those crimes, and receive those sentences, would remain in the country and, of course, they’ll be eligible for citizenship one day, too.”


It allows judges to “nullify” deportation, as they so chose. It also eliminates drug addiction as a reason for deportation and removes the prohibition against people who have been convicted in other country of drug crimes from immigrating here.

“The bill would also effectively abolish all existing enforcement against illegal immigration,” said the Fox News host. “To detain illegal immigrants, ICE would have to prove in court that they are dangerous or a flight risk. But of course, ICE wouldn’t be allowed to use a detainee’s prior criminal behavior as proof of danger. That’s banned. ICE would have to overcome even more hurdles if the detainee claims to be gay or transgendered, if they’re under 21, or if they can’t speak English and an interpreter isn’t immediately available, they get a pass. In other words, it would be much harder to arrest an illegal alien in this country than it is to arrest you. They’re the protected class here. You’re just some loser who’s paying for it all.”

But if that’s not enough, it gets worse. Much worse.

You know those people who have already been deported for crimes? This Act provides that they can apply to come back, called the “right to come home” and taxpayers would have to pay for it.


“The New Way Forward Act fundamentally inverts every assumption you have about America,” Carlson said. “Under this legislation, the criminals are the victims. Law enforcement is illegitimate. It’s racist, just like the country you live in, just like you are, and the only solution is to get rid of both. America would be better off as a borderless rest stop for the world’s worst predators and parasites. That’s the point of this.” [….]

“Whether the press cares or not, these are the stakes of the 2020 election,” he said. “A growing wing of the Democratic party views America itself as essentially illegitimate — a rogue state in which everything must be destroyed and remade: our laws, our institutions, our customs, our freedoms, our history, our values. That’s the point of all this, of course. An entirely new country, in which resistance is crushed, and they’re in charge forever.”

This is legitimately scary stuff and 44 Democrats have already signed on board with this. If you needed more reason to get out and vote in November, here’s one.
