Laura Ingraham Just Made a Bonkers Claim About Democrats to Get Republicans to Vote, and People Are Crying Foul

Fox News

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.

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

Others noted that First Lady Melania Trump brought her Slovenian parents to the United States through so-called chain migration, which President Donald Trump also bemoans quite regularly. The hypocrisy is strong.

Ingraham also told her viewers that birthright citizenship is a "travesty" and that Americans desperately need a border wall.

"There's so much on the line for America," Ingraham griped. "Will Trump get the funding for his wall? Will the mass migration from other poor countries in Central America be stopped at all?"

She continued:

"Will travesties like birthright citizenship finally be ended?"

Birthright citizenship is enshrined in the United States Constitution's 14th Amendment, which the Supreme Court has upheld since its ratification in 1868.

Conservatives such as Ingraham believe that undocumented immigrants abuse this by coming to the United States to have kids, thus guaranteeing their children American citizenship.

But to those who support giving people the opportunity to come to the United States for a better life, the real travesty is Ingraham's brand of fear.

Ingraham's show has lost major advertisers after she teased a student survivor of the Parkland school shooting in February. This latest rant probably won't help redeem her.

Former Vice President and current 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden erupted at a man during an Iowa town hall who accused him of actively working to get his son Hunter a board position on the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings. Biden called the man a "damn liar" before challenging him to pushups.

Republicans seized on the moment as an opportunity to discredit Biden as a candidate, but Fox and Friends cohost Ainsley Earhardt's reaction may be the most deluded yet.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly made clear that, after President Donald Trump solicited Ukrainian leaders to announce investigations that personally benefitted him, the decision to launch impeachment proceedings wasn't a political maneuver, but a constitutional mandate.

The move came after years of Trump's supporters, as well as some critics, insisted that impeachment would be political suicide for the Democrats.

Since shortly after the inquiry's announcement in September, support for impeachment outweighed its oppositon as more revelations surfaced of Trump's dealings with Ukraine, but his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale attempted to show that Pelosi's move to impeach would lose Democrats their House majority.

The House Judiciary Committee, in its public impeachment hearing against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, consulted four constitutional scholars for greater insight to the legal implications of the President's Ukraine scandal—and whether they merit impeachment.

Three witnesses, called by Democrats, each made compelling arguments for the articles of impeachment with which Trump could be charged.

George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley—invited by Republicans—was the lone dissenter.
