MSNBC guest says ‘only two options’ on immigration: ‘Let people into this country’ or ‘let them die’

MSNBC guest Francesca Fiorentini suggested Sunday night that America must let illegal immigrants into the country because the only other option is “death.”

MSNBC host Ayman Mohyeldin spoke to a panel about how Republican governors have sent illegal immigrants to areas populated by wealthy liberal elites.

Fiorentini criticized Republicans but went on to suggest that both sides have been too tough on illegal immigrants in recent years.

“But the reality is that border cruelty has been a bipartisan consensus, unfortunately,” she argued. “And the Democrats have been pulled to the right by the Republicans, further militarizing the border, giving CBP [Customs and Border Patrol] even more money. This is one of the largest federal agencies that is insanely militarized, right? It has crazy jurisdiction.”

The comedian suggested that the Democratic Party needs to be more compassionate about the waves of people trying to cross America’s southern border.

“And so, I’m looking for visions from the Democrats about actually, not just humanizing migrants — which is just the bottom line right? But really, how can we be better than the drug gangs that these people are fleeing?” she said.

After suggesting that many migrants have come from Venezuela, she recalled waves of migration from other troubled nations.

“Just a few months ago, Haitian migrants were being chased on horseback. And yet Ukrainian migrants, refugees, have been welcomed into this country – as they should be,” Fiorentini argued.

She presented the complicated political problem in simplified terms.

“And the answer is this: It’s either death or accepting people into this country. There are only two options here. And I will go with letting people into this country rather than letting them die,” she said.

The host, instead of pushing back, seemed to agree.
