Art Del Cueto was interrupted today by a Fox News host when he referred to large quantities of people entering our country illegally or by force as an ‘invasion’:
Here’s what happened via DC Examiner:
Fox News anchor Sandra Smith pushed back against the vice president of the National Border Patrol Council during an interview after he described a recent incident at a Colorado ICE facility as an “invasion.”
Appearing Thursday on America’s Newsroom to discuss recent attacks on ICE buildings across the country, Art Del Cueto said, “Disgusting. It’s disgusting to see something like that.”
This is what Del Cueto said that got him into ‘trouble’:
“When you have individuals in large quantities that enter another country by force or illegally, waving the flag of another country, that is an invasion. I stand by those words,” Del Cueto continued.
That’s when Sandra Smith said she had to “push back”:
“Hold on,” Smith interrupted, and then they proceeded to talk over one another.
She added, “Obviously, we have to push back on comments like that. People will take issues with you calling at that. It is obviously a sensitive issue right now.”
Smith then directed the conversation back to the specific attacks against ICE facilities.
What he said was exactly right. He didn’t refer to anyone’s ethnicity, but referred to “individuals in large quantities” who are trying to cross illegally or force their way into the country carrying another country’s flag. Who cares if it’s a sensitive issue for liberals. It’s accurate.
Man, Fox News is getting really soft if they can’t handle something like this. Ugh.
