Fox News host Laura Ingraham took on Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) in a heated debate about the addition of a citizenship question in the 2020 census and she took him down for all of his misguided information, reports Fox News.
California, which has decided to be a Sanctuary state ever since President Trump came into office has also promised to sue Trump yet again over the addition of this basic and common sense question to the census claiming that it will suppress immigrants from responding.
Sherman says that the question will create “credible fear in immigrant communities,” to which Ingraham asked if he was defending immigrants who are convicted criminals.
You’re defending the rapists, the child abusers, the murderers, the Fentanyl traffickers? Really? Is that what you want to come on this show to do?” she replied.
She added, “We have a criminal alien problem in the United States, and your state is a sanctuary disaster. That’s the problem.”
State Attorney General Xavier Becerra said of the citizenship question that President Trump and his administration have “failed to learn the consequences of scaring people.”
During World War II, the federal govt. used #Census data to identify Japanese-American families for internment. But the #Trump Administration has failed to learn again from history. They’ve failed to learn the consequences of scaring people… #2020Census

Ingraham was not going to allow Sherman to keep spreading his liberal propaganda lies and instead set the record straight about the sanctuary state.
“I’m here to tell the truth,” Ingraham said to Sherman. “You’re here to tell a fantasy about how every illegal immigrant is like a valedictorian rescuing a puppy or cat from the tree.”
Sherman said the census asks whether a person is an immigrant, rather than an illegal immigrant. He accused Ingraham of trying to portray illegal immigrants as dangerous, arguing Trump did the same thing in his 2015 speech to announce his candidacy in which he referred to immigrants from Mexico as “rapists.”
“This is where Democrats just lose the American people,” Ingraham countered. “You are more worried about illegal immigrants than the legal residents of your own communities. Time and again.”
Representatives and other lawmakers like Sherman in California and any other liberal state would rather protect illegal and criminal illegal immigrants rather than protect the legal citizens they have in their districts because they know if they protect the illegal aliens it could mean more votes to their base.
