“Fox and Friends” co-host Tucker Carlson on Sunday wondered if countries should change their immigration policies to keep potential terrorists out of the country.

“Will someone somewhere make the obvious point that perhaps France is having these problems because it has the largest Muslim population in Europe as a result of its immigration policies?” he asked. “Is it time to re-think immigration policies in Europe and, by the way, also here in North America, to pay attention to the country of origin? Is it a good idea to let a lot of people from countries where violent Islamism is rife come to this country? What do we get out of it?”

Carlson also said that terrorism is “an Islamic problem.”

“Islam has become rigid, it’s become doctrinaire, fundamentalist, and the world is suffering as result,” he said. “Not all Muslims, of course — most are peaceful and decent people. We all know a lot of them. But there is a species of the religion that has gone completely off the rails, and until you say that out loud, it’s kind of hard to address it.”
