Tucker takes on a founder of Border Angels over the caravan of migrants heading to the U.S. via the U.S.-Mexican border, Mexico’s culpability in aiding and abetting illegal immigrants and why the United States is apparently to blame for illegals crossing the border.
Female shooters at workplace shootings are rare. An update on the woman believed to be the shooter who injured four before apparently killing herself at YouTube headquarters in Calif.
Tucker: Rather than fix its own serious problems, Mexico exports them to the United States. America is Mexico’s welfare state. Mexico a corrupt kleptocracy whose economy is based on oil, drugs, and remittances sent from its more functional northern neighbor. We should treat it like the hostile foreign power it is.
Tucker wonders why the U.S. should welcome the caravan of migrants who will cross the Mexican border when we don’t know who they are. Ramos says the members of the caravan are the poorest and most desperate – and helping them is what America is about.

‘Mexico Wouldn’t Exist’: Tucker Battles Jorge Ramos Over Impact of Illegal Immigrants
Tucker Carlson said in his monologue that Mexico effectively uses the United States as its “welfare system.”
Carlson said that cash sent by immigrants to family back home makes up part of the Mexican economy.
He called Mexico a “hostile foreign power whose interests are very different than ours.”
Univision anchor and dual citizen Jorge Ramos took issue with the sentiment, but said he has criticized the corruption in the Mexican government in the past.
Ramos said Mexico is fed up with what he called President Donald Trump’s “racist statements” and claims that some Mexicans were “criminals [and] rapists.”
Carlson said Mexico should be doing more to break up the “caravan” of Honduran nationals using it as a pass-through to get to the U.S. border to claim asylum.
Ramos said the “caravan” incident is proof that Trump “needs Mexico” to help fix its immigration problem.
“Without illegal aliens, Mexico would collapse,” Carlson said, pointing again to the wealth generated by remittances. “Mexico wouldn’t exist.”
