Title: Beto O’Rourke to Black American: Illegal Immigrant Labor Needed for Cotton Gin

During a town hall event on Wednesday night, Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) — running against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 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. O’Rourke’s remarks were made after a black American asked the congressman if he supported illegal aliens being given U.S. citizenship despite breaking the country’s immigration laws. O’Rourke responded by saying that it is illegal aliens who are working at cotton gins today.

The exchange went as follows:

BLACK AMERICAN: My question is, do you support granting citizenship and American-paid benefits to illegal aliens who violated our country to come here, who fly their foreign flags here, who have citizenship in their countries and whose families did absolutely not build this country, while black people are subject to things that you explained before? You can answer yes or no, please. [Emphasis added]

BETO O’ROURKE: Many, many people built this country, first of all. And we are a country of many people … and I’m paraphrasing Congressman Lewis at this point, but he said something to the effect that each of us came to this country in a different ship. Some of us came here against our will, some of us immigrated here lawfully … some of us are showing up right now as we speak. They’re fleeing the deadliest countries in the planet today. The northern triangle countries of Central America … imagine how bad things have to be for you to scoop up that six-month-old daughter of yours and to walk 2,000 miles … to refuge in a country that is comprised of people from the world over. And yes, there are some people who did not follow our laws when they came here to be with their families or to work jobs and, in some cases, no one was willing to work in their communities. [Emphasis added]

I mentioned going to the high school in Roscoe, 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 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. [Emphasis added]

O’Rourke recently said in an interview on CBS The Late Show, that he supported an amnesty for more than three million illegal aliens who were eligible and enrolled for President Obama’s DACA program.

“We can free DREAMers from the fear of deportation by making them U.S. citizens today, so they can contribute to their maximum capacity, to their full potential,” O’Rourke said.

Mass low-skilled illegal and legal immigration has come at the expense of America’s black working and middle-class communities and workers.

Data reported by Breitbart News reveals how studies by economists and researchers find that it is, specifically, underprivileged black American men who suffer the most from the importation of more than 1.5 million low-skilled immigrants every year to the U.S.

In the mid-1990s, Civil Rights icon and Texas Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Jordan issued the findings of her immigration commission, where she revealed that mass immigration to the U.S. hurt poor, working-class and lower-tier middle-class Americans the most, as it unfairly put them in competition with a never-ending flow of cheaper, foreign workers.

Most impacted, the Jordan Commission discovered, were black Americans.

Portraying foreign nationals as the only willing blue-collar workers in the U.S. is a talking point often used by the open borders lobby, the Business Roundtable, and both political establishments.

O’Rourke’s suggestion that Americans are unwilling to do blue-collar jobs is not backed up by data collected and analyzed by the Center for Immigration Studies.

Researcher Steven Camarota has found that of the more than 460 American occupations he analyzed, only four were dominated by foreign-born workers. Those four occupations accounted for less than one percent of the total U.S. workforce.

Many American blue-collar workers pick cotton, often in very high temperatures, using American-made machinery, such as this cotton harvesting machine used in north Alabama:

For blue-collar American workers, mass immigration has not only kept wages down but in many cases, decreased wages, as Breitbart News reported. Meanwhile, the U.S. continues importing more foreign nationals against whom working-class Americans are forced to compete. In 2016, the U.S. brought in about 1.8 million mostly low-skilled immigrants.

Black Americans are often the most supportive of reducing immigration levels. A Harvard/Harris Poll conducted this year found that 48 percent of black Americans said they would like to see between only one and 250,000 legal immigrants brought to the U.S. a year, a near immigration moratorium when compared to current levels.

A CBS News/YouGov Poll conducted a few months ago revealed that a plurality of black Americans in swing districts who say immigration has changed their neighborhoods concede that immigration is making life in America “worse” for them.

About 36 percent of black Americans said immigration has changed their communities, and roughly 45 percent of those black Americans say the mass importation of mostly immigrants from Central America is making their lives worse off.


Poster Comment:

Beto O'Rourke would be a fantastic replacement for Ted Cruz. The Senate needs the diversity a guy with the name of Beto would bring to that gaseous body!

Black voters have always been nothing but an expendable resource to the democrats. Why should the democrats waste time helping a constituency that gives them an automatic vote every two years?

Democrats still need slaves to work their cotton fields. Unbelievable, not much has changed with them since 1865.

What was the DemoRAT's promise to the Southern Black Voters after the Civil War, will give your 40 Acres and a Mule for your vote or a Chicken in every pot, of course they got the 40 Acres and a Mule but all the crops grown on the 40 acres belonged the the DemoRAT's, And here we are in the year 2018 and the DemoRAT's are still buying the Black vote by giving them Free Housing & Free Food, and their no further ahead today then they were over 230 years ago when they were marched off the slave ships and placed on the Auction Blocks.

It's a damn shame that President Trump is backing a loser like Lyin Ted, instead of someone pro-American that could beat Beto.

It's the Democrat wing's turn to get the majority, and take the blame for the D&R globalist NWO swamp party.

Will the sheeple ever wise up, and quit voting for the D&R suicide pact?

Yes we can commit suicide by voting third party and letting the demoncrats run the show and remove your ability to use a gun for defense and when that's established then they can just out right ban and confiscate guns because everyone has been trained not to resist. Then they can finish with the commie I mean socialist propaganda until there are nothing but sheep.

Yes lets vote our selves into hell!/s

Why not kill off the much worst party. Lets destroy the demoncrat party and then when all the socialist run to the gop we can then start a new party to the right of the gop. Oh I know that's because you prefer to bitch instead of actually getting something accomplished!!!!!!!!

As long as the GOP is moving the football to the right in a fashion I can live with I will stand with them.

They gave us McCrazy and I said hell no and voted 3rd party for the first time in my life.

As long as Trump is getting things accomplished as he is I will back him to save America. Let me tell you he is scored soo many times that demoncrats are being forced to put 20 guys on the field, pay off refs and getting help from the never trumpers to not run routes. Trump Is taking the ball and punching it down the middle where gop base is and will not let him down.

It's all a part of the international banker/globalist plan to destroy capitalism for thee and me,and leave them in sole control over all the capital and all the political power in the world.

Depressing wages while bringing 3rd World peons who have no education and who don't speak English into the country in order to put American labor out of work and on welfare and dependent on goobermint handouts is a twofer for them. Both the peons that can't speak English and the native born English speakers will BOTH rely on the government for food,clothing,housing,and medical care,while the banking families and those who work for them will see huge increases in their profits.

Not that the profits that are so important now will be all that important in the future. They won't. Nothing will be important but power because the people who have power don't need money. They either already own everything,or they can just take whatever they want because their will be nobody to stop them.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.
