Democrats love having illegal aliens flood the country. No, not because they are children of God, or whatever platitudes the Dems throw around in vain. It’s because, as the Left sees it, these men and women supply an abundance of cheap labor and votes — though they would never admit the second part.
Ever since President Joe Biden was inaugurated, the border has been a sieve. Illegal aliens from all over the world have entered the United States course, in reaction to this crisis, Republicans have tried varying legal actions to crack down on the lawlessness. In response, Democrats have let it be known that they think all these individuals are really good for is crop picking, toilet cleaning, and other manual labor. Republicans, in the Democratic Party’s mind, are the bad guys for wanting secure borders. They want you to believe that they are the good guys for supporting an economy based on financial exploitation.
Consider that on Wednesday, disgraced ex-DNC Chair and current Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) grumbled about Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ new e-verify law to ensure that employers hire American citizens and legal residents, among other objectives. Wasserman Schultz warned MSNBC viewers that our nation’s veggies would soon begin to decay in the Sunshine State because of DeSantis’ new law.
“He’s going to devastate our economy. Tourism, construction, agriculture — I mean you’re going to have vegetables rotting in the fields, you’re going to have construction sites lying dormant … the tourism and restaurant industry, in particular, rely on these workers,” Wasserman Schultz said.

Wasserman Schultz isn’t alone in her concern. A few weeks ago, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) made similar comments.
“So let’s all take a minute to recognize the hypocrisy of every anti-immigrant debate,” Jayapal said while arguing for amnesty. “This country needs immigrants to survive. Immigrants pick the food we eat, rebuild our communities after climate disasters, help construct our infrastructure, power our small business economy, clean our homes, and look after the most precious in our families — our children and our elders.”

Did you get that? America won’t be able to “survive” without illegal aliens. What sort of nation doesn’t even have an abundant supply of cleaning ladies and cheap labor, Jayapal is effectively saying.
And then we have former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). When DeSantis shipped a crew of 48 illegal aliens from Venezuela to Martha’s Vineyard, she too worried about who would be out in the fields picking her Florida oranges if the governor went any further.
“We have a shortage of workers in our country, and you see even in Florida, some of the farmers and the growers saying: ‘Why are you shipping these immigrants up north? We need them to pick the crops down here,’” Pelosi said.
The other reason that Democrats support illegal immigration is that they hope to turn these individuals into loyal party voters. The rebuttal is that no illegal aliens are voting, so that is a conspiracy. Well, if mass amnesty is granted, then they would be American citizens and could vote.
Consider that a 2018 leaked memo from an influential progressive claimed that amnesty for many illegal aliens in the Deferred Action Childhood Arrival (DACA) program was a “critical component of the Democratic party’s future electoral success.”
Now, party politicians such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are advocating for amnesty for the “11 million or however many” illegal aliens there are in the country.
Here’s the thing: Democrats and Washington Republicans actually agree on this issue. Illegal immigration supplies cheap labor and businesses can keep wages low. In turn, both political establishments push for amnesty. Democrats do it because they hope to gain new voters, and Republicans do it because they are dumb.
In actually, all illegals should be deported and the border should be sealed off once and for all, as discussed last week.
Yet until that happens, liberals such as Pelosi, Wasserman Schultz, and Jayapal will be more than happy to allow them be to exploited for inexpensive work.
