Before FOX News anchor Tucker Carlson interviewed a Univision anchor, he asked a question that most Americans would love to know the answer to: ‘Why would the left be defending the country’s most violent street gang?'” Carlson explained, “Trump has made them irrational, that’s part of it.”

“MS-13 is a living reminder that the left’s position on immigration is fundamentally a lie. The media tell you every day that every immigrant, legal or not is a future brain surgeon or tech company founder, therefore immigration controls are unnecessary. If they admit that MS-13 is actually bad, and have to be stopped, they’d also have to admit that when some countries send their people here, they aren’t sending their best.”

Tucker Carlson debated a Univision anchor who took issue with President Trump when he called illegal immigrants who are members of the MS-13 gang “animals.”

Enrique Acevedo said he would never “defend criminals” nor the heinous actions of the violent Salvadoran gang.

But, he said that Trump was wrong to call any human an “animal.”

I don’t think any human being is an animal,” he said. “[We] expect the president to speak to our highest ideals.”

Carlson pointed out recent MS-13 murders have included a man who was stabbed 100 times, decapitated and had his heart removed from his body.

Other MS-13 members beat a young girl with a bat more than two dozen times, police said.

“When you hear those [MS-13 members] described as animals, you get offended. Why?” Carlson asked.

Acevedo said that Trump labeling any illegal immigrant an “animal” is “part of a larger trend,” nothing that Trump called some Mexican nationals “rapists” in his inaugural campaign speech in 2015.

“You’re rushing to the defense [of MS-13],” Carlson said incredulously. “You’re unable to admit there are immigrants who shouldn’t be here.”

“Please convince the Democrats [running in 2018] to defend MS-13,” Carlson remarked.

Here’s the video of President Trump where he referred to the violent MS-13 gang members as “animals”. You decide if what he said was “offensive”.
