Fox News' Jeanine Pirro Calls For Congress to be Fired For Opposing Trump on Immigration: 'Are You Stupid and Blind?'

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro this weekend shredded Congress for "failing us" on immigration and called for all U.S. senators and House representatives on Capitol Hill to be fired for opposing President Donald Trump's policies aimed at stopping illegal border crossings.

Pirro's opening statement on Saturday's Justice with Judge Jeanine addressed Trump's latest deal with Mexico, announced by the State Department on Friday night, to "curb illegal immigration at our southern border," before delving into a long rebuke of Congress.

"It's a big win for the president," Pirro said. "Congress would rather deny him a win on immigration and let the problem continue to proliferate, no matter the harm to the American people. Even his own party fails him yet again."

Senate Republicans on Tuesday declared opposition to Trump's threat to impose tariffs on all goods entering American from Mexico. Hours after the president said that Capitol Hill would be "foolish" to try and block the move, GOP members issued a sharp message to the Trump administration, warning them that they were almost unanimously opposed to the move.

"Congress continues to fail us," Pirro continued. "Not only blocking the president's efforts but actually passing a bill this week that would give two and a half million Dreamers amnesty, a signal to illegals that not only will they let you in and pay for food, housing, education, medical and travel, but sooner or later they'll give you amnesty after they release you into the interior proving yet another incentive for illegals to cross."

Yet the House of Representatives "does nothing to address the crisis of the border and the bill does nothing to secure the border or enforce our laws. The president had even offered a bill that did both. But no one in Congress was interested," the Fox News host added.

Pirro then named and shamed all the Republicans who supported the Democrats efforts, which "provided no resolution to the crisis at the border."

"Don Bacon (R-NE), Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), Will Hurd (R-TX), Dan Newhouse (R-WA), Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Fred Upton (R-MI)," she said, as their names and photos were aired under the title "Republicans Who Voted For Amnesty Bill."

"Congress ought to be fired for forcing this president to negotiate with a foreign power to solve a national immigration crisis that our own government won't solve, either because it's a 'manufactured crisis' — are you stupid and blind?," Pirro continued. "Or do you hate the president so much you'd rather we Americans suffer the burden of the children of illegals into our already too-small classrooms."

Pirro went on to reiterate her calls for all of Congress to be dismissed, before ending the segment by praising Trump.

"So, the president sits in the White House in December waiting to strike a deal while Congress goes on vacation — Hawaii, Puerto Rico, planning junkets to Brussels, Afghanistan — and now as he negotiates with Mexico, they do nothing, while illegal immigrants continue to set records day-by-day crossing the border, knowing they'll be released to disappear," she said.

"Congress would rather sit on their hands and give themselves a pay raise. I have an idea, fire the whole lot of them," Pirro added. "It all comes down to one thing, the strength of the president to again defy the odds, the naysayers and the doubters ... This is Donald Trump's moment in history. And I for one believe in the man and moment. So should you."

Trump announced his deal with Mexico on Friday in a tweet where he said that the hefty tariffs, which would have gone into effect on Monday, have been suspended.

"The tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended," the president tweeted. "Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take strong measures to stem the tide of migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border."

In a joint statement, Mexico vowed to impose measures to stop the flow of migrants traveling to the U.S. through their nation by ramping up law enforcement along their southern border with Guatemala.
