Lou Dobbs: Immigration Could Deliver ‘Millions of Americans to Their Deaths’

Lou Dobbs urged President Donald Trump to close the U.S. southern border on Thursday night, and by the next morning, the president was threatening to do so in a tweet. Friday night, Dobbs stepped up the rhetoric, warning that immigration from Mexico into the U.S. could consign “millions of Americans to their deaths.”

The insane and morbid prognostication came on the same night the Fox Business host called on Trump to fire Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

“If this is what we have come to, if the quality of people in leadership in DHS from the secretary of the department on down I mean — let’s you know, just literally put out welcome wagons,” Dobbs said. “Pile ’em high because we’re just going to consign tens of thousands, perhaps millions of Americans to their deaths.”

Dobbs also called border patrol leadership “absolute morons.”

While Trump has always watched Lou Dobbs Tonight — and the two are in regular phone contact, as Mediaite has reported — he has recently taken up the hobby of tweeting out segments from the Fox Business show.
