On Tuesday’s edition of “The Ingraham Angle,” host Laura Ingraham debated Fusion news anchor Jorge Ramos on the merits of two recent court rulings surrounding President Donald Trump’s immigration policy.
U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel – a frequent subject of Trump critiques for past rulings from the bench – decided that the White House can proceed with its planned border wall without regard to environmentalists’ concerns.
Ramos said Trump should think differently now about Curiel, who was born in Indiana but is of Mexican ancestry.
He called Trump’s previous comments about Curiel, suggesting possible bias on the judge’s part, as “precisely the definition of racism.”
Ingraham and Ramos also debated whether “illegal immigrant” should be a permissible phrase, as Ramos said no human is “illegal.”
“Let’s cut through all this,” Ingraham responded. “Do you believe in nationhood?”
Ramos said he did, but added that America is “partly responsible” for its illegal immigration problem because it relies on illegal immigrants to work in the agriculture and construction fields.
