Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, easily the two dumbest men on television, are simply beside themselves at the idea that 911 emergency responders in Texas actually help people who don’t speak English. And they seem to think they’re supposed to determine whether someone is a citizen over the phone.
“They stumbled across the border illegally and now they need your help!” Fox News host Steve Doocy complained, pointing to a 911 call in Brooks County, Texas where a man who could only speak Spanish asked for a helicopter rescue because his cousin was “turning purple.”
“A small Texas town forced to answer 911 from stranded illegals in Spanish!” Doocy exclaimed.
“Not only are they understaffed and lacking resources, now they’ve got to deal with illegal immigrants who have no business being here,” co-host Brian Kilmeade opined.
Brooks County Chief Deputy Urbino “Benny” Martinez pointed out to Kilmeade that his department had a duty to respond to all 911 calls.
“So, those calls you have to respond to, even though for the most part when you get there, you realize, they’re not an American citizen?” the Fox News host pressed.
Seriously, you demented ghouls, what the fuck would you have them do? Just let someone die if they don’t have the right papers? Are they supposed to send paramedics out there but have them stop and demand citizenship papers before treating their medical problems? I’ve got a better idea: How about we stop giving medical treatment to assholes like this?
