Paul Nehlen who attempted to unseat Speaker of the House Paul Ryan in 2016 and is aiming to try again in 2018, appeared on the new “Cerno News” right-wing political talk show yesterday to about undocumented immigrants shielded by DACA.
During yesterday’s broadcast of “Cerno News,” he shared his reaction to the Trump administration’s repeal of DACA, which protects almost 800,000 young undocumented immigrants from deportation, with Devon Stack and Cerovich Media writer Andrew Meyer.
“They need to go back to Mexico and make Mexico great for once. I’m not of the opinion that we owe them anything. We don’t owe them anything. We don’t owe any Mexican citizens anything in this country,” Nehlen said.
Additionally, Nehlen said he joined religious leaders at a town hall event to pray that congressional leaders would “do the right thing for America” and “relocate” undocumented immigrants to their countries of origin.
“Mexico’s a great country. There’s a great culture down there, but I don’t want it here in the United States. I want it to be in Mexico. I want Mexico to be in Mexico.”
With a sarcastic tone, Meyer warned Nehlen that he “had to be careful” saying nice things about Mexico because it makes it hard for liberals to “smear” him “as a kind of racist.”
Nehlen has a history of pandering to far-right alternative media. He has previously appeared on Infowars and on alt-right blogger Stefan Molyneux’s broadcast, and has courted alt-right figureheads such as Ann Coulter.
