CLEVELAND, Ohio – Following the first GOP presidential primary debate in Cleveland, Ohio, Breitbart News caught up exclusively with GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson after he left Quicken Loans Arena, where the debate was held. Carson said he wanted a question about immigration, so he could tell the American people his plan to handle the 11 million people who are in America illegally.
“I thought in the beginning I wasn’t getting asked any questions – Scott Walker wasn’t either – but I think they tired to correct that in the second half,” Carson told Breitbart News.
“I wanted to get asked about immigration – didn’t get a chance to do that.” He added, “I was hoping someone would ask me about cyber warfare.”
“With immigration, I would have said everybody is concentrating on the southern border, but we have to seal all the borders because it’s not just people from Guatemala we are worrying about – it’s radical jihadists. We must be much more serious about that,” Carson stressed.
He shared his plan to handle the millions of illegal immigrants who are in the country already, explaining, “It’s an unreasonable proposition to think you’re going to round millions of people up and deport them … we have to be realistic.”
“You have to turn off the spigot that dispenses all the goodies – that would stem the flow of people in here,” Carson explained, addressing the increasing entitlement programs via the federal government.
Levin observed that Fox orchestrated the undercard debate very professionally and proved they know what they are doing. Yet, he believes that with the top tier debate, Fox decided that they were “going to go for the ratings… and turned it into reality TV.”
