Fox News host Laura Ingraham is using xenophobia to motivate Republicans to vote. On her show The Ingraham Angle Tuesday night, Ingraham stoked fears over immigration to drive conservative voters to the polls in November.
In a fiery rant, Ingraham warned her viewers that “the cause” of protecting the border would be “totally lost” if “open borders” Democrats win control of the U.S. House of Representatives, and that American citizens would be “replaced” with “chain migrants.”
“Your views on immigration will have zero impact and zero influence on a House dominated by Democrats who want to replace you, the American voters, with newly amnestied citizens and an ever-increasing number of chain migrants,” Ingraham said.
Watch the full clip below:
The shifting demographics of the American electorate clearly scares the bejesus out of Ingraham and her fans.

But the idea that citizens will be “replaced” is a new one.
Really?! I have four children, all with spouses, six grandchildren and we are a growing family. How is my family going to be replaced by immigrants? My job? They can have it! Republican power has made companies repulsive to their employees. Get a brain @IngrahamAngle. Use it?

Question for @FoxNews or should I say "Faux News"? Why do you have this sh*t on the air? @IngrahamAngle is a #hatesayer not a journalist. This is a crime against humanity and against the U.S.A. WTF is the matter with you?

Ugh. I really hate that @IngrahamAngle, who has such a toxic, fearful, world view, has a platform to influence others. When will people like her return to the darkness from whence they came?https://t.co/qxzCPRNpsX

Yup. Fear mongering against non-white immigrants.

Some joked that they’d like to replace Ingraham with an immigrant.
