Mass immigration makes American votes “diluted and increasingly worthless, like the U.S. dollar,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Monday.

“This is what it looks like when an entire native population -- black and white, but every one of them an American -- is systematically disenfranchised," Carlson said. "Middle-class Americans become less powerful every year. They have less economic power and thanks to mass immigration, they now have less political power."

The pundit honed in on both Vice President Kamala Harris' rhetoric concerning illegal immigration, as well as the Anti-Defamation League's stance against more Arabs voting in Israel during the segment.

Below is a full transcript of this portion of ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’:

Tucker Carlson: In the summer of 2019, then-President Donald Trump promised, falsely as it turned out, that he was going to deport huge numbers of foreign nationals living here illegally. Kamala Harris’ response to this was revealing. Harris could’ve argued, as Democrats often do argue, that deportation is cruel and it’s un-American, but she didn’t say that. Instead, she told the truth about it. “Let’s call this what it is,” Kamala Harris wrote on Twitter, it's “an attempt to remake the demographics of our country by cracking down on immigrants. That this threat is coming from the President of the United States is deeply reprehensible and an affront to our values. We will fight this.”

But wait a second, Donald Trump had announced he was deporting illegal aliens -- illegal aliens aren’t allowed to vote in our elections; they're not even allowed to live here. How is sending them home to their own countries, “an attempt to remake the demographics of our country?” Illegal aliens shouldn’t even count in the demographics of our country. They’re not Americans. Kamala Harris’ response only makes sense if you believe that the millions of foreigners breaking our laws to live here are future Democratic voters and that’s exactly what Kamala Harris does believe. It’s shocking if you think about it and that’s why you're not allowed to think about it. Thinking about Kamala Harris’ planning, Kamala Harris herself would like you to know, is deeply reprehensible and an affront to her values. In other words, submit to our scheme or you’re immoral.

If you heard prominent people talk like this in any other country, you’d be confused. A nation’s leadership class admitting they hope to replace their own citizens? It seems grotesque. If you believed in democracy, you would work to protect the potency of every citizen's vote, obviously. You wonder if people even debate questions like this in countries that don’t hate themselves, countries like Japan or South Korea or Israel. Go to the Anti-Defamation League's website sometime if you’d like a glimpse of what an unvarnished conversation about a country's national interest might look like. In a short essay posted to the site, the ADL explains why the state of Israel should not allow more Arabs to become citizens with voting rights. "With historically high birth rates among the Palestinians, and a possible influx of Palestinian refugees and their descendants now living around the world," the ADL explained, "Jews would quickly be a minority within a bi-national state, thus likely ending any semblance of equal representation and protections. In this situation, the Jewish population would be increasingly politically -- and potentially physically -- vulnerable. It is unrealistic and unacceptable," the ADL continues, "to expect the State of Israel to voluntarily subvert its own sovereign existence and nationalist identity and become a vulnerable minority within what was once its own territory."

Now from Israel’s perspective, this makes perfect sense. Why would any democratic nation make its own citizens less powerful? Isn’t that the deepest betrayal of all? In the words of the ADL, why would a government subvert its own sovereign existence? Good question. Maybe ADL President Jonathan Greenblatt will join us sometime to explain and tell us whether that same principle applies to the United States. Most Americans believe it does. Unfortunately, most Americans don’t have a say in the matter. Most Americans aren’t even allowed to have the conversation, so they watch from the sidelines as their democracy is murdered by people who claimed to be its defenders.

"Democracy Democracy! Democracy!" screams the Twitter mob, even as the votes of the people who were born here decline steadily in value: diluted and increasingly worthless, like the U.S. Dollar. This is what it looks like when an entire native population -- black and white, but every one of them an American -- is systematically disenfranchised. Middle-class Americans become less powerful every year. They have less economic power and thanks to mass immigration, they now have less political power. The leaders making these changes have no sympathy for their victims. They blame the country for its own suffering. You always hate the people you hurt. That’s all true. Every honest person knows that it’s true. As long as we’re here, we're going to keep saying it out loud.
