Tucker Carlson welcomed Alex Nowrasteh, an immigration policy analyst for the CATO institute in Washington, D.C., to his show to debate the scale of immigration in the United States.

Nowrasteh is a supporter of more immigration, but Carlson challenged him on this, asking “If more immigration makes you richer come up why is the American middle class getting poorer?”

Watch the clip above to see why Carlson argues the United States does not need a level of increased immigration.
