North Carolina congressional candidate Pete D’Abrosca appeared on Friday evening’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to argue that the US should have a ten-year moratorium on all immigration.
D’Abrosca, who’s running in the GOP primary against North Carolina Representative David Rouzer, outlined his vision for zero net immigration during the segment.
“So, about 200,000 people leave the United States every year,” D’Abrosca told Tucker Carlson. “Bringing in 200,000 legal aliens would be fine, but bottom line, we would like to have no population increase from legal immigration.”
“Oh, you’re not allowed to say that,” Carlson replied, before adding “because the left controls the terms that the right uses, as you know, and you’re allowed to say under duress that you’re against illegal immigration, but you’re never allowed to say that there should be some absolute cap.”
“Well, those are the old party rules, Tucker,” D’Abrosca continued. “There’s a new Republican party in town and it’s people like myself who are younger, and less controlled by the Conservative Inc. crowd and the political elites.”
“We understand the game, and we understand that the Chamber of Commerce has bought and paid for our Congresspeople,” D’Abrosca went on, “and we understand that it has bought and paid for organizations like Turning Point USA and media outlets like the Daily Wire, for example, who are not meaningfully conservative in any way and can never be trusted to conserve anything.”
“I mean, tell me what your rationale is, though,” Carlson said. “I mean, they are going to attack you, probably, on a bunch of different levels for saying this. Why should people agree with your idea?”
The North Carolina congressional candidate went on to explain the detrimental effects that importing close to one million legal immigrants each year has had one the working and middle classes of this country via wage suppression.
“Even Republicans, supposed conservatives, are lobbying right now to increase high skilled tech visas,” D’Abrosca noted.
“Now, imagine being an ordinary American and going to college with the idea that there’s upward mobility in society, that you’re going to improve your life by going to college and taking on $100,000+ in student debt, and you get out of college and you’re competing with a foreigner for a computer engineering job.”
“But that’s the free market, we’re told [by the GOP establishment],” Carlson retorted sarcastically.
D’Abrosca then aptly replied, “the free market capitalism of Wall Street is much different than the free market capitalism of Main Street.”
