“I am ashamed,” Rivera pronounced on “The Five” on Monday. “The rip gas choked me. We provide these people, these mercantile refugees, as if they’re zombies from ‘The Walking Dead.’”
His voice rising and filled with emotion, he pronounced the migrants were mercantile refugees, not invaders, and urged people to stop using “military analogies” when articulate about them.
“These are unfortunate people. They walked 2,000 miles. Why? Because they want to rape your daughter or take your lunch? No! Because they want a job. They want to fill the millions of unoccupied jobs we have in the rural sector. They want to rinse dishes in the restaurants. They want to broach the pizzas. For integrity sake, we postpone our amiability when it comes to this issue, and we fear that it is because they look different than the mainstream.”
Rivera also defended the migrants last month on the network in a exhilarated discuss with Sean Hannity and former White House help Sebastian Gorka.
