Daily Show's Jon Stewart Tears Into Protesters of Migrant Children Shelters

Posted By on Wed, Jul 16, 2014 at 10:01 AM

As only he can, Jon Stewart points out the hypocrisy of those on the far right demonstrating in front of buses of Central American migrant children and our elected officials pontificating on the floors of Congress—completely missing the basic principles on which this country was founded. In last night's segment, "America's Immigration Crisis: Kids Edition," Stewart nails it right here:

Why would you not come to a place that great? In fact, it's why all of our ancestors came to this country, and were themselves originally unwelcome. Because that's the story of America. From Ben Franklin's worry that Germans were ruining Pennsylvania, to our 19th century 60-year ban on the Chinese immigrants who had just finished building our rail system, to our very real and justifiable concerns about the Irish, and their insatiable "applying for jobs".

We can't wait for tonight to see how Stewart and Stephen Colbert tear apart bus-chasing AZ Rep. Adam Kwasman and his embarrassing rant on YMCA campers he thought were migrant children.
