Fox’s Jesse Watters joined “The Five” on Wednesday, where he compared Univision host to an “illegal alien” after the journalist was temporarily kicked out of a Donald Trump press conference in Iowa.

“I think Ramos acted like an illegal alien and got treated like one,” Watters said. “He cut the line, was disruptive, and then was deported and then Trump let him back in. Isn’t that his policy?”

The other hosts of “The Five” did not join Watters in his comparison, but for the most part agreed that the Univision anchor was rude during the press conference. However, contributor Juan Williams, said that Ramos was “acting like a journalist,” while Trump reminded him of a “dictator.”

Ramos was removed from a press conference with Trump on Tuesday night after the Univision anchor began asking Trump a question about immigration without first being called on by the candidate.

“Go back to Univision,” Trump told Ramos after repeatedly telling him to sit down.

The Trump campaign then let Ramos back into the press conference, where the journalist quizzed Trump on his immigration proposals.
