Tucker Carlson traveled to El Salvador this week and interviewed Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele about what is happening at America’s southern border.
A massive amount of the immigrants showing up at the border are from El Salvadaor.
Bukele told Tucker that he disagrees with the policies that are causing this situation and that it is bad for both countries.
It’s a fascinating interview.
Here’s a partial transcript via FOX News:
Salvadoran president tells Tucker: Mass immigration ‘not profitable,’ ‘feeding on dependency’
Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that his government is as concerned about the illegal immigration crisis at the southern border as many people in America…
Bukele said that in his nearly two years in office he has worked to improve both conditions for the people of El Salvador, but that there is much more ground to make up. He told Carlson that his government’s improvements are however borne out in the observation that there are much fewer “caravans” of migrants heading through Mexico from El Salvador than from neighboring Honduras or Guatemala.
“It is obvious, our country has failed to provide two basic things which are the two main drivers of immigration which are the lack of economic opportunity and a lack of security,” he said. “[But] most people don’t want to leave their country. They like their country, their food, weather, it is their country. And they have their family members here and their friends.”
“First, it is immoral — you need to provide for your people. But, you also have an economic issue. If you send hardworking people and talented people and people who want to risk it just to go to work, you want to keep them here because those will be the drivers of your economy. You don’t want them there so that they can send a remittance, which would be a small portion of what they would earn and produce; you want them to produce here.”
