Tucker Carlson lashed out at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she claimed, on MSNBC that Fox News has been spouting “hateful rhetoric” about Afghan refugees. Carlson said Omar herself is a bad example of how poorly America takes in refugees.

“I know what some of these people are worried about,” Omar said of the GOP earlier this week. “It’s that they’re worried that refugees like myself, when they come to this country, will outshine them. But that is just their own failure and their inability to find success in the ways in which refugees have found success in this country.”

“So, the obvious response to that is to attack poor Ilhan Omar,” Carlson said after replaying Omar’s statement. “But we’re not going to do that. The truth is, this is our fault. She is our fault. Ilhan Omar is living proof that we are not very good at resettling refugees.”

According to Carlson, the Minnesota lawmaker was inundated with propaganda to hate America from Americans themselves. “She was saved from a refugee camp in Kenya as a child by the kindness and generosity of America,” Carlson said. “And yet she has grown to hate America and the people who live here. Where did she learn those attitudes? Well, of course, in college, our colleges. We taught her to hate our country. She became worse after she got here. We ought to pause before we do that again, to anyone, even if they’ve been translators.”

Currently, President Biden has reached out to neighboring countries to encourage them to accept more refugees. Plane loads are already on their way to the U.S.

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck southern Turkey and northern Syria early Monday morning, leaving 3,500 lives lost and many buildings destroyed. There is an ongoing search and rescue mission for survivors, according to reports.

According to Fox News, The World Health Organization (WHO) the death toll could increase as much as eight times as rescuers work to find more victims. WHO’s senior emergency officer for Europe, Catherine Smallwood, told AFP that, “We always see the same thing with earthquakes, unfortunately, which is that the initial reports of the numbers of people who have died or who have been injured will increase quite significantly in the week that follows.”

To make matters worse, a mixture of rain and snow fell throughout the areas Turkey and Syria that were devastated by the earthquake. Eyewitness accounts described citizens as they ran out of their homes after waking up to the violent and thunderous shakes of the earthquake.

The massive earthquake toppled buildings in regions of Syria, which were held by the opposition due to the ongoing civil-war. Access to health and medical services was limited in the impoverished areas.

According to a doctor in Atmeh Syria, 11 people were killed with an unknown number of citizens buried underneath the debris from the toppled apartment buildings and other infrastructure.

The quake was so fierce that it could be felt in Cairo Egypt. The center-point  of the quake was located 60 miles from the Syrian border according to Fox News.

Hours later a series of at least 20 aftershock followed the quake. According to Turkish authorities the largest aftershock measured in at a 7.5 magnitude.

On twitter Turkish President, Reccep Tayyip Erdogan said, “We hope that we will get through this disaster together as soon as possible and with the least damage.”

The death toll continues to rise in Turkey and Syria.
