During Wednesday’s The Colbert Report host Stephen Colbert commented on a new video from the organization Californians for Population Stabilization in a segment called “United We Can’t Stand Them.”

The video makes the accusation that immigrants are responsible for the increase in size of the U.S.‘s carbon footprint. “Reducing immigration won’t solve global warming, but it is part of the solution.”

Using information from the Center for Immigration Studies, which is clearly anti-immigrant, the video states, “Immigrants produce four times the carbon emissions in the U.S. than in their home countries.”

Watch the video to see Colbert’s hilarious take on immigrants allegedly causing global warming and how it can bring Republicans and Democrats together.
