This Latina Schooled Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Live On TV

Tucker Carlson is a conservative political commentator on Fox News who is known to be confrontational when discussing topics such as immigration.

Carlson has been known to be dismissive to anyone who opposes his views. So why would anyone with a difference of opinion go on his nightly show?

Immigrant advocate and author Julissa Arce recently appeared on Carlson’s show and ended up getting into a heated debate. Arce, a former Goldman Sachs executive who used to live in the U.S. without documentation, was invited to the show to discuss a cap on admissions to the University of California schools. We asked Arce why she’d even consider dealing with Carlson’s infamous hostility. Arce told mitú she wanted to “set the record straight with facts that Fox News viewers may never get otherwise.”

During the discussion, Tucker said California’s state school system allowed “illegal aliens” to attend but not American citizens:

“It does seem to me that no matter how conflicted you feel about immigration, you would never be in favor of a state school capping admittance of American citizens, but in effect giving preference to illegal aliens. Why would any sane person be in favor of that?”

What Tucker was actually referencing to is a new rule for the California University System which institutes an 18% cap on out-of-state residents.

Many state universities already implement this sort of law. All it really means is that students that are residents of the state get a preference to attend the school over out-of-state students.

As you can hear, Tucker not only belittles Arce’s opinion but mocks her as well.

In an interview with mitú, Arce said that she handled herself with composure and dignity.

“I didn’t let his laughs, interruptions and calling me ‘illegal’ deter me from my goal,” said Arce.

Arce reiterated her point over-and-over again, which was that undocumented immigrants are residents of California if they have lived in that state for more than three years. It’s an actual law, not some random idea that undocumented people want to get away with. AB 540, passed in 2001, allows undocumented students and out-of-state students to pay in-state tuition at public colleges and universities in California.

Arce told mitú that if any American citizen from any other state wants to attend a California university and benefit from in-state tuition, all they have to do is “move to California for 3 years or longer, and graduate from a California high school.” This will allow them to establish residency and obtain in-state-tuition. But somewhere Carlson could not comprehend the basic facts.

So how did people react to this debate? It was a mixed bag. Arce sent us a screenshot of one of the many hateful emails she received, like the one below.

However, she did accomplish her goal of changing the minds of some conservatives.

Arce informs us that this was not her first time on his show either, so she knew exactly what to expect from him.

But will she go back? You bet. She said that if she’s invited back to his show, she will return “because we have to preach beyond the choir.”

AOC Gets Under Ted Cruz’s Skin With Crack About His Mexican Getaway After He Accuses Her Of Pushing For ‘open borders’

AOC Gets Under Ted Cruz’s Skin With Crack About His Mexican Getaway After He Accuses Her Of Pushing For ‘open borders’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ted Cruz are at it again on Twitter. This time it’s about immigration policy. After recently traveling to the US-Mexican border to underline the recent rise in immigration, Cruz accused AOC of pushing for a “full open borders” policy.

And of course, AOC got him with some solid zingers.

AOC in turn hit back at Cruz for recently fleeing his home state of Texas during its power grid collapse to vacation in Cancún.

In response to Cruz’s attack, AOC suggested Mexico avoid allowing Cruz in the next time he attempts to vacation there. She also called on him to resign from office for his attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“Ted, this is pretty rich coming from someone who fled their own home (and responsibilities) during an environmental crisis to cross the border and seek refuge in Mexico,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Also you funded cages, expanded cages, and yet you’re complaining about cages. You have no policy, just puff.”

Ocasio-Cortez accused Republicans of hypocritically attacking the current administration’s detention of migrant children at the border after they supported President Donald Trump’s policy of separating migrant parents from their children.

Currently, Democrats like AOC are calling on Biden to impliment more liberal immigration policies.

Republicans have strongly expressed their dislike for the recent rise in migrants which has come as a result of Biden’s reversal of Trump’s most rigid border policies.

AOC is currently a co-sponsor of the Roadmap to Freedom resolution. The resolution calls on the Federal Government to develop and implement a Roadmap to Freedom “in order to overhaul the outdated immigration system in the United States that has gone without significant reform for decades, and to relieve the great human impact an unjust system bears on communities around the country.”

Vanessa Bryant Celebrates Like A Proud Mom As Daughter Natalia Announces She’s Going To USC

The Bryant Family has been through a lot since losing the Black Mamba along with 13-year-old Gianna. But despite the trauma, they’ve been working hard to maintain a sense of normalcy for themselves and a huge part of that, for 18-year-old Natalia, has been getting into college.

Well, now Natalia along with her very proud mother and fans around the world are celebrating her accomplishments as she’s announced that she’s been accepted into the University of Southern California (USC.)

Kobe Bryant’s daughter Natalia is going to USC and her family couldn’t be more proud!

It looks like Kobe Bryant’s daughter is going to become a Trojan. Natalia Bryant was accepted into the University of Southern California on Tuesday to the excitement and delight of her closest family and friends. Vanessa Bryant shared emotional footage of the moment Natalia found out she got into the LA-based university and expressed her pride and joy in her oldest daughter.

“Tears of joy. I’m SO happy for you Nani! I know daddy is so PROUD OF YOU. I am so PROUD OF YOU!! Your hard work and dedication was so worth it,” Vanessa captioned the video.

“You pushed through the most excruciating pain imaginable and you succeeded. I wish Daddy and Gigi were physically here to celebrate but I know they’re here in spirit. We love you so much! #USC #Trojan #FightOn

Proud mamacita even had custom USC Black Mamba Nikes made for the celebration.

In the other Vanessa video, she showed off all the gifts she gave Natalia for the accomplishment, and they included balloons, USC swag and some custom Trojan-themed Kobe kicks.

Her USC acceptance comes on the heels of another big announcement for the 18-year-old.

The past few weeks have been full of great news for Natalia. She just recently announced that she had been accepted into both Loyola Marymount and University of Oregon, but recently confirmed she would be headed to USC in the fall.

“See You Soon @uscedu !❤️💛” she captioned a photo of herself wearing a USC baseball hat and shirt. “Fight On✌🏽”

And it was just a few weeks ago that news came that she signed with IMG Models.

“I have always been interested in fashion since a very young age,” Natalia said in a statement. “I have a love for the industry and ever since I can remember I wanted to model. There is a lot to learn but I feel this is a great opportunity for me to learn and express myself creatively.”
