To Fox News Anchor Tucker Carlson’s horror, thousands of people who made the trip to Liberty Island to celebrate the Fourth of July were forced to cut their holiday short and evacuate after a Congolese woman by the name of Therese Patricia Okoumou scaled the monument in protest of the Trump administration’s zero tolerance immigration policy.
Carlson argued on his show her actions were a prime example of the lack of gratitude expressed by foreigners who seek a home in the United States. Host Ethan Bearman joined the program to defend Okoumou and her rights as a naturalized citizen! The conversation originated from their debate earlier in the segment on Democrats using immigrants as political pawns.
See the video of the upset, which ended in Okoumou being taken into custody after a four-hour standoff with police, below.
