Julissa Arce, a former vice president at Goldman Sachs, joined Tucker Carlson on the Fox News Channel to discuss a popular opinion article she wrote for CNBC on Wednesday about President Donald Trump’s immigration policies. Arce came to the United States illegally as a child, but she managed to work her way up to top positions on Wall Street.
Discussing Arce’s article, Carlson said during his show on Thursday, “I also found your characterization, frankly, of the president’s proposed border wall as ‘a symbol of hate’ as not an indication of gratitude . It suggests that you don’t think America has a right to protect its borders. And that seems a very odd attitude for someone who has benefited so much from your adopted country.”
“No, not at all,” Arce responded. “I don’t think that makes me ungrateful. I think that makes me a citizen of the country who also gets to have a voice. And my voice might be different than your voice, but we both get to voice our opinions.”
