Strong criticism of Nancy Pelosi for saying that illegal immigrants could serve to “reap the crops”


nancy-pelosiThe president of the House of Representatives of the US Congress, Nancy Pelosi, is the target of strong criticism on social networks after declaring that in her country there is a shortage of workers and that illegal immigrants should be used as labor labor in the crops.

This Friday, during a press conference, Pelosi criticized the governors of the southern states of the country that send undocumented immigrants to the cities of the northern regions.

“We have a responsibility to protect our (southern) border, but we also have a responsibility to recognize the importance of newcomers to our nation. Right now, the best thing we can do for our economy is comprehensive immigration reform,” she stated.

“We have a shortage of workers in our country, and even in Florida, some of the farmers and growers are saying, ‘Why are you sending these immigrants north? We need them to harvest the crops here,’” the congresswoman assured.

“That doesn’t mean we don’t recognize our moral responsibility,” she added.

Many Twitter users criticized the Speaker of the House of Representatives, accusing her of brazenly admitting that her country should benefit from cheap immigrant labor.

“A massive and uncontrolled wave of illegal immigration doesn’t solve anything, but that’s how they think,” wrote one netizen.

“How come these people say this kind of thing publicly without hesitation? They really believe that immigrants are nothing more than cheap labor for the US. They can no longer bring them from Africa and now they are tempting them to come from Latin America with false promises, ”criticized another user.

While former Republican Senate candidate Bernie Moreno tweeted: “Elite Democrats think Hispanics are only good at picking their crops. Legal Hispanics will respond forcefully in November and send Nancy and many other radical Democrats home.”

The Federation for American Immigration Reform, for its part, considers that the massive flow of immigrants helps the Democratic Party in two aspects: “More future voters and cheap foreign labor.”
