O’Rouke wants illegal immigrants to do jobs Americans won’t do because of policies he supports

Pratt on Texas“During a town hall event on Wednesday night, Rep. Beto O’Rourke, running against Sen. Ted Cruz for the Senate seat, told a black American who questioned his support of illegal immigration that illegal aliens from Central America and Mexico are today’s cotton pickers,” John Binder reported for Breitbart.

Speaking of a visit to Roscoe, O’Rourke said: “I also went to the cotton gin in Roscoe. And at that cotton gin, there are 24 jobs and the manager of that gin says it does not matter the wages

Rep. Robert Francis O’Rourke

that I pay or the number of hours that we set … no one born in Roscoe … or Texas or this country who is willing to work. But there are immigrants who are coming from Central America or Mexico or other parts of the world to Roscoe to work these jobs and to help build our economy.”

The question was specifically about “illegal aliens who violated our country[‘s laws] to come here.” So why does Beto Pancho believe the gin workers must illegal alien immigrants, why can’t we have legal immigrants work such jobs if needed?

The bigger question O’Rourke, nor any Democrat will seriously discuss with honesty, is why will people native to a small, poor-on-jobs town with 18.7% of population below the federal poverty level, if the gin claim is true, refuse to work no “matter the wages” or “numbers of hours” set?

…it is Beto’s Leftist policies which have created the culture where labor need be imported to areas in which there are few jobs and very low incomes.

Misguided Democrat welfare policy supported by O’Rourke has made it easy for some to turn down opportunities for work leaving the work to those who cannot easily obtain life subsidizing transfer payments – like illegal aliens.

So while Beto Pancho argues that those here illegally should be today’s cotton pickers, it is his Leftist policies which have created the culture where labor need be imported – even to areas in which there are few jobs and very low incomes.
