On Wednesday morning, US Representative Scott Perry (R-PA) echoed Fox News Host Tucker Carlson’s concerns that immigrants are coming here to replace native born Americans for the benefit of the Democrat Party.
In a subcommittee meeting this morning, dedicated to trying to understand the root cause of Central American migration, especially in recent months, Perry took the floor and explained “For many Americans, what seems to be happening or what they believe right now is happening is, what appears to them is we’re replacing national-born American — native-born Americans to permanently transform the landscape of this very nation.”
Perry went on to bring up the lack of action to stop the ongoing Biden border crisis, citing the record number of migrant children apprehended at the border in March 2021 as evidence of said replacement.
He also criticized President Joe Biden’s plan to give more money to the “Northern Triangle” countries of Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras in order to stem the flow of immigrants, rather than continue construction of former President Donald Trump’s border wall as a more effective method of deterrence.
Concerns with regards to replacement of native born American by immigrants have taken center stage in the past week after Tucker Carlson made similar statements on his prime time show on both Thursday and Monday night.
“…if you suggest that the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate, the voters now casting ballots, with new people, more obedient voters from the third world. But they become hysterical because that’s what’s happening, actually.” Carlson noted on his show last week.
After he made these statements, he has been subject to a barrage of attacks from the political establishment and far left, coupled with calls for his resignation from leftist advocacy groups like the ADL. Carlson, for his part, has not backed down, defending his statements in subsequent episodes.
And Rep. Scott Perry, already a proven Conservative and strong ally of President Trump, just proved that Tucker Carlson’s message has salience with the American electorate- certainly enough to make it’s way to the highest office in the land. Like it or not, this rhetoric will not be going away any time soon.
