Tomi Lahren Dragged for Immigration Comments: ‘Xenophobic Rage Barbie’

“You don’t just come into this country with low skills, low education, not understanding the language,” Lahren said on Fox News this weekend

Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren was slammed over the weekend for remarks she made about immigrants.

“You don’t just come into this country with low skills, low education, not understanding the language and come into our country because someone says it makes them feel nice,” she said during a segment on “Watters’ World” Saturday. “That’s not what this country is based on.”

Lahren’s observation is at odds with the country’s history of immigration and the words of the poem engraved on the Statue of Liberty, which literally reads: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”

A Fox News tweet lauding Lahren’s position on the issue was quickly seized upon by critics who raked the contributor over the coals.

“I’d trade Xenophobic Rage Barbie for a hard working immigrant any day of the week and twice on Sundays,” said former Office of Government Ethics director Walter Shaub. “Contributing less than nothing to this country, she exists only to make lazy white supremacists ‘with low skills, low education, [barely] understanding the language’ feel nice.”
