‘I Live Inside Your Brain’: CNN Debate on Immigration Goes Off the Rails

A CNN debate on immigration got a little personal tonight and consequently went off the rails.

California State Senate Leader Kevin de León and former Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo were debating the plight of illegal immigrants in the United States. De León denounced the actions of the Trump administration, while Tancredo said that the bottom line is that people pay a price for breaking the law.

De León criticized Tancredo’s record in particular and said his personal legacy on immigration was to undermine not just Democrats, but Republicans and George W. Bush on immigration reform.

Tancredo shot back that he just wants amnesty and would settle for nothing less. As they continued arguing, de León repeatedly asked him to “calm down.”

Tancredo said he’s perfectly calm, and told de León––in response to the shots he took at his congressional record––”I live inside your brain, you know that?”
