The Daily Wire’s Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro slammed Democrat Sen. Kamala Harris of California for a tweet about illegal immigration and then apologized for California being “so stupid.”
“My state is so stupid. I’m sorry, I’ve lived my entire life in California, it’s so dumb,” Shapiro said Tuesday on “Fox & Friends.” “Kamala Harris’ statement here is what California really needs is to shell out more dollars for financial aid for illegal immigrants.”
Harris’ tweet said illegal immigrants weren’t asking for state assistance due to President Donald Trump’s “anti-immigrant agenda.”
For the second year in a row, fewer undocumented youth applied for financial aid in California because they are distrustful of our government. This is a direct product of Trump's anti-immigrant agenda. No one in America should ever have to live in fear of our government. https://t.co/SBHqXfBcmR

“According to FAIR which is an anti-illegal immigration group, their estimate is that California spends $23 billion a year on illegal immigration,” Shapiro added. “That’s twice as much than any other state in the union. Yet Governor Jerry Brown has said that all illegal immigrants are not only welcome in the state of California, but we are going to subsidize them to be in the state of California.”
Shapiro said U.S. citizens should be offended by the idea of paying for illegal immigrants to live in America and believes Harris’ rhetoric only serves to weaken the country’s sovereignty.
“If you are a legal resident of the United States, if you’re here legally, then you should be upset with the idea of subsidizing people to come here illegally, if you are interested at all in having a sovereign country that controls its borders,” he said. “It’s pure insanity, but it shows once again that for Democrats there is an actual look to make illegal immigration more prominent. They want more illegal immigrants, not fewer illegal immigrants. Which explains a lot of their behavior on immigration bills that have come up for consideration.”
Shapiro also said California would be better served spending money to help the homeless in their state, as opposed to subsidizing those who have broken federal law.
“Obviously most of homeless people in California are not illegal immigrants, but those people obviously could use resources that the state is not providing. And the state is not providing those because the state of California is bankrupt,” Shapiro concluded. “According to estimates we have over one trillion dollars in outstanding debt. So the idea we’re going to be spending $23 billion a year on people who should not be in the country legally and then we should be mourning the fact that we are not spending more. Again we have citizens in this country where, I’m not in favor of a lot of this government spending, but if you’re going to have it at least spend it on the people who are here legally.”
