Beto O’Rourke: Allow CEOs
to Import Endless Foreign Workers
Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke says employers should be able to hire foreign workers instead of Americans whenever there are “labor demands.”
The labor policy announced by the Texas Democrat would allow U.S. employers to replace millions of Americans with cheap foreigners whenever Americans ask for more pay, better working conditions, or family leave.
The replace-Americans policy was buried in O’Rourke’s repetition of the progressive claim that the United States is a nation of immigrants and his call for two amnesties. “Let us rewrite our immigration laws in our own image,” O’Rourke declared in a May 21 CNN town hall in Des Moines, Iowa. Ge continued:
Let us reflect our values, our reality, the best interests and traditions of this country that is compromised of immigrants, and asylum seekers and refugees. Free every one of the more than one million dreamers [illegal migrants] from any fear of deportation by making them U.S. citizens here in their homeland and then give others who are laboring in the shadows right now, working some of the toughest jobs that we can imagine. Let’s bring them out of the shadows, allow them to contribute to their full potential, put them on a path to citizenship, and ensure that our visa quotas match the labor demands we have here, our desire to have families be able to reunite, and have everyone contribute to the share greatness and success of this country.
The progressive audience applauded O’Rourke’s plan to allow coast-to-coast outsourcing of their jobs and their children’s’ jobs.
