Difficulty: 0

>> Tucker: THE PRESIDENT

THREATEN TO CLOSE THE

U.S.-MEXICO BORDER AND CUT AID

TO VARIOUS CENTRAL AMERICAN

COUNTRIES IN RESPONSE TO THE

MASSIVE CARAVAN OF MIGRANTS MAKE

ITS WAY SLOWLY UP TO MEXICO.

SECRETARY GENERAL JIM MATTIS

ALSO ORDERED 800 TROOPS IN

ANTICIPATION OF THEIR ARRIVAL

BUT ROBERTO HERNANDEZ IS AN

IMMIGRATION ADVOCATE IN

SAN FRANCISCO SAID THAT HE'S

HAPPY THE MIGRANTS ARE COMING.

THANKS VERY MUCH FOR COMING ON.

I DON'T EXPECT TO CONVINCE YOU

TO CHANGE YOUR VIEWS ON

IMMIGRATION.

WE'VE TALKED MANY TIMES.

I KNOW WHAT THEY ARE PAIRED BUT

I APPLAUD YOU BEING MORE HONEST

THAN MOST PEOPLE ARE SAYING

SAYING OUT LOUD WHAT YOU REALLY

WANT.

TELL ME THE JUSTIFICATION FOR

THIS GROUP COMING HERE IS THAT

IF THEY WANTED A PILE

ASYLUM, THEY

COULD APPLY.

ARE THEY CLAIMING THEY ARE

REFUGEES FLEEING A WAR?

IF SORE, WHAT WAR?

WHAT IS THE JUSTIFICATION OF

THIS?

>> GOOD EVENING.

FIRST OF ALL, LET'S GO TO OUR

HISTORY.

>> NO, LET'S NOT.

LET'S GO TO THE QUESTION.

>> LOOK AT ALL THE EUROPEANS

THAT CAME HERE -- THIS WAS A

NATIVE AMERICAN AND EUROPEANS

CAME HERE.

>> YOU'VE DEMONSTRATED A -- I

JUST WANT YOU TO ASK MY HISTORY

RIGHT NOW.

CAN WE JUST STICK TO THE

QUESTION?

WHAT IS THE JUSTIFICATION, WHAT

IS THE LEGAL JUSTIFICATION OF

THESE PEOPLE COMING TO THE

BORDER AND THAT THE

U.S. EMBASSY?

>> IF YOU LOOK AT THE ROLE OF

THE UNITED STATES IN

CENTRAL AMERICA, IN NICARAGUA,

HONDURAS, GUATEMALA, IN OTHER

COUNTRIES IN LATIN AMERICA, THE

UNITED STATES HAS PROMOTED WARS

TO PROTECT CORPORATE INTERESTS

AND

IN A LOT OF THESE COUNTRIES.

YOU HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO

HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY THESE WARS

AND IT'S CAUSE POVERTY AND A LOT

OF THESE COUNTRIES.

CURRENTLY, THERE IS A POLITICAL

CLIMATE IN A LOT OF THESE

COUNTRIES AND PEOPLE ARE COMING

HERE LOOKING FOR REFUGEE --

BE ONE I'M GOING TO TRY TO TAKE

YOU SERIOUSLY --

>> THE UNITED NATIONS --

>> NOTHING THE NEW

UNITED NATIONS TO ME.

I'M TRYING TO TAKE YOU -- THE

FIRST CARAVAN IS COMING FROM

HONDURAS.

WHAT WARS ARE YOU SPECIFICALLY

TALKING ABOUT THE UNITED STATES

PROMOTED AND WHEN DID THAT WAR

AND MY?

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT

SPECIFICALLY?

SPECIFICALLY

LOOK >> SPECIFICALLY LOOK AT THE

LOOK >> SPECIFICALLY LOOK AT THR

LOOK >> SPECIFICALLY LOOK AT THL

LOOK >> SPECIFICALLY LOOK AT THE

OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT IN

HONDURAS.

>> Tucker: WHAT WAR ARE YOU

TALKING ABOUT?

>> LET ME ASK YOU THIS.

DO YOU KNOW OF ANY INVOLVEMENT

IN THE U.S. IN HONDURAS?

>> Tucker: WHAT YOU ARE SAYING

YOU DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT YOU

ARE TALKING ABOUT, BUT YOU ARE

THROWING OUT --

>> YOU HAVE A SHOW JUST TO TALK

ABOUT --

>> Tucker: ROBERTO, I'M

TRYING...

I'M ASKING YOU SPECIFICALLY WHAT

WAR IN HONDURAS ARE YOU TALKING

ABOUT THAT THE UNITED STATES

INSPIRED THAT JUSTIFIES THIS

MIGRANT CARAVAN?

WHEN DID THAT WAR AND MY?

WHAT YEAR?

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT OR DO

YOU NOT KNOW?

>> I DO.

LET'S LOOK AT THE ROLE OF THE

MILITARY OF THE U.S. CURRENTLY

IN HONDURAS.

>> Tucker: BUT YOU SAID THERE

IS A WAR.

SO YOU ARE TOTALLY IGNORANT OF

THE HISTORY OF HONDURAS BUT YOU

ARE LECTURING US ABOUT OUR

RESPONSIBILITY TO LET THE PEOPLE

IN BECAUSE OF A WAR THAT WE

STARTED BUT YOU CAN'T TELL US

WHAT WAR OR WHAT YEAR IT ENDED?

I THINK THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE

SAYING?

>> NOT ONLY THAT, BUT IT'S THE

INVOLVEMENT OF THE U.S. IN

HONDURAS AND CENTRAL AMERICA.

>> Tucker: OBVIOUSLY HISTORY

IS NOT YOUR SUBJECT.

I'M NOT --

>> UNITED NATIONS IS CURRENTLY

THE CARAVAN.

WHY WOULD THEY BE SUPPORTING AND

HELPING THE PEOPLE?

>> Tucker: I CAN'T IMAGINE WHY

THE U.N. DOES A LOT OF THINGS.

>> THE U.S. SHOULD STOP AND LET

THE PEOPLE COME HERE.

>> Tucker: LET'S SEE IF YOU

CAN ANSWER THIS.

SAN FRANCISCO HAS NOW ANNOUNCED

THAT ILLEGAL ALIENS, PEOPLE WHO

HAVE NO RIGHT TO BE HERE, WILL

BE ALLOWED TO VOTE IN LOCAL

SCHOOL BOARD ELECTIONS.

YOU LIVE IN THE CITY AND THINK

THIS IS A GREAT IDEA.

DO YOU THINK AMERICANS WHO SNEAK

INTO OTHER PEOPLES' COUNTRIES

SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO VOTE IN

THEIR ELECTIONS?

>> LET'S LOOK AT HOW MANY WHITE

PEOPLE LIVE IN MEXICO.

THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT DOESN'T

HARASS THEM.

>> Tucker: ARE THEY ALLOWED TO

VOTE IN ELECTIONS?

>> LOOK HOW MANY PEOPLE DID NOT

VOTE IN THIS LAST ELECTION.

LOOK.

LOOK AT THE NUMBERS.

>> Tucker: OKAY.

I WOULD SAY AS A PERFORMANCE

ARTIST YOU ARE TALENTED, BUT I

WANT ONE STRAIGHT ANSWER.

DO AMERICANS WHO SNEAK IN OTHER

PEOPLE'S COUNTRIES WITHOUT

PERMISSION ALLOWED -- DO THEY

HAVE A RIGHT TO VOTE IN THOSE

COUNTRIES' ELECTIONS?

DO I HAVE A RIGHT TO SNEAK INTO

MEXICO AND ANNOUNCED THAT I GET

TO VOTE THERE AND IF YOU DON'T

LET ME, YOU ARE A RAPIST?

IS THAT A HUMAN RIGHT THAT I

POSSESS?

>> IN SAN FRANCISCO, THESE

INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE BEING

ALLOWED TO VOTE ARE ONLY VOTING

FOR THE ELECTION, FOR THE BOARD

OF EDUCATION.

>> ANOTHER QUESTION UNANSWERED.

>> THESE PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE THE

RIGHT TO VOTE SPECIFICALLY FOR

THOSE WHO ARE GOING TO MAKE

POLICIES AND DECISIONS THAT

AFFECT THEIR CHILDREN.

>> Tucker: SO I GIVE YOU
