Sean Hannity used police dash-cam video of an illegal alien opening fire on officers during a routine traffic stop to condemn Sen. Kamala Harris’ claim that U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is like the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).

Thursday, on his Fox News program, Hannity introduced and aired the violent, graphic police video:

“Look at what happened in Arkansas on Sunday. A 29 year-old illegal immigrant opening fire on officers during a traffic stop outside of Fayetteville. We have the dash-cam footage – but, be warned, this video is disturbing.”

“This is why we talk about vetting people before they come into the country,” Hannity said, adding that, “Thankfully, no officers were injured” and the perpetrator was apprehended. “This act of violence is unacceptable and the very reason secure borders, a strong system of vetting, are vitally important,” Hannity said.

Hannity then issued a stern warning about the dangers posed to Americans by “the most radical crop of Democrats to ever come to Washington” – such as Sen. Harris, who, in a Senate hearing, likened ICE to the KKK.

“While most Americans support common-sense border security measures, far-left Democrats are continuing to demonize those who are just trying to protect us and enforce our laws. Take for example, California Senator Kamala Harris who, just today, literally compared ICE to the KKK,” Hannity said, playing video of Harris’ comments.

Hannity declared Harris’ remarks both “beyond despicable” and evidence of how little concern Democrats have for the safety of the American public:

“That senator wants to be your next president.

“Now, what you just saw is beyond despicable. Now, to be that patronizing, frankly, idiotic, utterly disrespectful, to men and women in law enforcement that put their lives on the line for us every single, solitary day is shameful. How many border agents have been injured or killed performing their daily work?

“It’s exactly what I have been warning you about: this is the most radical crop of Democrats to ever come to Washington. Instead of respecting our laws, our sovereignty, or constitution, they push for open borders, sanctuary cities and states. And, without a doubt, they’re saying they want to abolish ICE – the very organization responsible for enforcing our system of immigration laws.

“They don’t care how much it costs, what danger it poses to you, the American people, they want wide-open borders. And, tonight, Kamala Harris might just have one last challenger in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.”
