Travel Capitol Hill to urge passage of a fair immigration law.
Both men saying the country needs skilled immigrants to prosper in the future.
But congresswoman Maxine Waters -- far left -- turn the immigration testimony into an anti Fox News diet -- Why are you here.
With -- basically decent proposal.
Talking about the -- that TH.
Of emigrants to our economy.
But I don't think that we have promoted on fox as a matter of fact.
Not bad what I hear -- -- particularly when you have -- talking about anchor babies that.
All of that.
waters gives herself away with the anchor babies line for her the issue is not about legal immigration.
It's about illegal immigration which she -- which she wants which she has done everything in our power to encourage.
Some of this -- Fox News see it differently.
We believe that chaotic illegal immigration is harmful to the country that doesn't make us anti immigration.
It makes us anti law breaking.
As for the immigration debate all sides are.
You are not gonna take ten million people many of -- -- video for.
Many years good actors they have not broken the -- they -- -- I would -- I'm not gonna put them on the buses and deport them.
I am pro immigration.
I believe America should offer opportunity to foreigners who Obey the rules -- wanna work hard.
I want to continue our tradition of welcoming people who believe America it is the land of opportunity.
But I want it done in an orderly disciplined way call me crazy.
And if you want to get into illegal immigration we also have plenty of voices who feel the same way miss waters done.
Of all over 97%.
Of all the people in our prisons federal state and local -- citizens.
They are here legally.
Illegal aliens are not the problem that commentator -- who choose to make this a social issue make them out today.
Do you subscribe to the Sanctuary City policies one you think they're okay.
Yeah for the most part I think that those are people who were acting on principle.
Notes to -- -- congresswoman waters doesn't know what she's talking about.
We have -- -- debates here on fox news with plenty of opinions on immigration.
Congresswoman may notice that on our cable news competition they don't have any -- -- They just told the liberal line and of course that's what congresswoman waters wants.
To accuse Fox News -- being anti immigrant is dishonest and disreputable.
waters -- this entire network an apology.
And that's -- -- now for the top story tonight reaction joining us from Chicago congressman Luis the good -- -- who was at the hearing yesterday to congressman where.
I'm going wrong.
Well of course the ball I never.
-- they know to an opportunity.
To be -- buttons network.
A couple of weeks ago I think I was on in the sixth when he segment flew in the night before.
That it could literally get up at 4 o'clock in the morning eastern standard time but I did it because I think.
All too often -- the point of view of heading off the -- just.
Reformed immigration -- -- doesn't get covered on Fox News.
When I come on there's huge -- many times and anti immigrant.
Congressman but -- many most of the times and if you watch the program it's kind of like the anchor and the -- fact and Louise but yes this with the other.
Well we don't and then there's the we don't subscribing ganging up on anybody -- this is the -- this is the premiere broadcast on the network and I say that would all humility.
This is -- YOK.
That millions of people all over the world watch here.
We have been flat out fare in this today we it would just as many liberal voices on.
And as conservative voices -- waters characterizes Fox News across the board as being anti immigrant.
It's a good tips you know that's not true you know that's not fair and I'd like it comes.
-- -- -- -- -- Okay here's what I would like to say is engaged as I always have been on a conversation and dialogue with you.
And here's what I have to what I would I fit.
To Rupert Murdoch yesterday I fit thank you very much thank you for taking this position.
Thank you for for engaging in America and a conversation that is different and think about.
There is somewhere other than that's amnesty that's open borders.
There is a profit of legalization which mr.
Rupert Murdoch spoke to yesterday -- we could take the twelve million.
Legalize them tax them teach them English because as he suggested it to do otherwise the -- and lift because -- too many people think.
Anything up there and many times we hear this on the back -- network.
Because it's it's it's a way -- add that that is absolutely true you do hear that point of view.
Which you hear the other point of view as well just as loud just -- -- passion and just his office.
And and I want to get back to this because this is important.
You are fair and that's why have you on program I mean I ask you question you give me enhance -- right.
And I'm asking you a direct question come right now I want a direct answer with all due respect.
-- was not fair to this network -- He was not fair.
Let me say that -- bill I think it is unfair.
Ask me to come here and act as -- birth not you are getting inside you saw what I say I'm the spokesperson but you give us a diet pill.
But I made a fair presentation.
I was thankful -- I was respectful I -- why won't believe your eyes water is that that what she says it right.
But here's what I want.
At and here's why can't I am very clear with you I don't show up on your program that I think I'm gonna receive accolades back from the voters in the -- -- -- -- -- I don't think that's going to happen right given.
You're political personally I they think -- -- -- guy though come on congressman I had a happy that it could read what I an honest well I think there are many people who turn -- -- -- each and every bit.
To listen to you.
That think there is value in your perspective and so that's why -- come -- and we are everywhere actually imagine that you want that you.
-- are adopting this issue.
Congressman waters was unfair.
In her characterization.
Of this network you are on that committee.
You saw what she did.
And you're telling me you don't have that the hole and -- to go up there and pulled her aside and say that's not right is -- -- -- -- on -- -- Here here's what I think.
I think everybody approaches situations differently and I think there was a difference and my approach and my colleagues approach.
I'm not here to do one thing or other I don't say the problem though seriously.
It gets difficult when you show up and you see the streaming of both Gary Brown people who have come here to do harm.
And we never see them in the fields we never see them taking their children to school we never see them going to school.
Immigrants illegal and legal here in this country and that really scary people they're wonderful people -- we should give them an opportunity we should.
You come out of Graham's by avenue DC it orderly law abiding system and I that you and I could agree with -- -- -- I think we're gonna get it on it.
But I -- -- to tell all I want to get it right you can I think -- I invite you to come out of that you meet with the Hispanic congressional -- let next time I have not CIA asset that I'll be -- is launching buying -- -- I'll -- -- by life but I wanna I wanna I want you to tell me -- waters.
The modest program.
And knock it off so I don't have to school -- irony bill bill something tells me she heard congressman thanks very much next on the rundown.
