Tucker vs. governor who told cops to ignore Trump guidelines
Dan Malloy, Governor of the state of Connecticut went on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show to discuss why it’s a priority to address the needs of illegal immigrants in Connecticut’s welfare state.
Fox News Reports:
“The president can’t order [the state] to do federal work,” Malloy said, “We’re not standing in the way of that happening,” he said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Carlson pointed to the state’s dire financial situation, adding that its capital city, Hartford, “is on the verge of bankruptcy” and asked Malloy whether responding to Trump’s order in that manner helps Connecticut citizens facing the other issues.
“We should not be expending local dollars [or] state dollars,” Malloy said, adding that a few years ago, the state legislature unanimously passed a referendum that mirrored Malloy’s instructions in his response.
In response to Malloy’s “federalist” argument, Carlson pointed to the governor’s stern rebuke of President Trump’s decision to reserve transgender restroom policies to the states, undoing a 2016 order by former President Barack Obama.
“I don’t think discrimination and bigotry are state issues,” Malloy said, “Why should someone be required to use a facility thy are no longer equipped [to utilize] because it was on their birth certificate?”
