Chris Wallace: Trump Wrong to ‘Demonize’ Mexican Immigrants

Last week on KFTK’s “Allman in the Morning,” Chris Wallace, the host of “Fox News Sunday,” said billionaire business mogul and Republican candidate for president Donald Trump, is “demonizing” Mexican immigrants.

Wallace was referring Trump’s  presidential announcement early in the month when he said, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

Wallace said, “I think it’s kind of a big deal to be President of the United States, and it’s a serious job. And I think you need someone who attacks the issues seriously, and when Donald Trump says, ‘Mexicans are sending their rapists and their whatevers, drug dealers, across the border and we’re going to build a high wall and we’re going to make the Mexicans pay for it,’ that doesn’t strike me as a very serious response.”

He added, “Most people come to the Untied States because they think they will be able to provide for their families and have better lives. To demonize a group of people, I don’t think is right.”
