Pelosi asserts that after DeSantis expels them, Florida needs migrants to “pick crops.”

Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attempted to justify waves of illegal immigration by claiming that Florida farmers needed the newcomers to “pick the crops down there,” which sparked outrage.
During a news conference, the California Democrat made the shocking remarks, at which she agreed that the United States has a duty to secure the border but should also “recognize the importance of newcomers to our nation.”
Pelosi was asked by reporters if she thought the southern border was secure after more than two million people were arrested for crossing illegally over the past year. She replied, “Right now, the best thing that we can do for our economy is comprehensive immigration reform.”
“Some growers and farmers even in Florida are saying, ‘We have a shortage of workers in our country,'”Why are these immigrants being shipped to the north?She mused, “We need them to pick the crops down here.”
Pelosi’s remarks were clearly a dig at Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, who oversaw the transfer of dozens of migrants from Texas to the wealthy liberal enclave of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts earlier this month. She did not name anyone in particular.
This year, DeSantis’ fellow Republican governors, Texas’ Greg Abbott and Arizona’s Doug Ducey, bussed hundreds of migrants to so-called “sanctuary cities,” such as New York and Washington, D.C.
On Twitter, many people slammed Pelosi, accusing her of suggesting that the United States should open its borders to take advantage of “cheap foreign labor.”
Andy Biggs, a Republican representative from Arizona, posted the following tweet:It is obvious that Democrats and Pelosi use illegal aliens as cheap labor and exploit them.Pelosi’s portrayal of migrants as farm workers as stereotyped was also criticized by other critics.
The RNC Latinos Twitter account of the Republican National Committee made the following statement: “Nancy Pelosi thinks immigrants should be picking crops.”Consider Democrats when they demonstrate their true colors.
Nathan Wurtzel, a Republican consultant, tweeted, “Hard to believe immigrants who have become American citizens are starting to vote Republican when the leader of the Democrat party in Congress views them only as fruit pickers.”
The following was added by the Federation for American Immigration Reform:Mass immigration meets two requirements for Democrats:1.More voters in the futurecheap labor from abroad.”
Jason Howerton said, referring to the Jessica Walter-portrayed character on “Arrested Development,” “Nancy Pelosi truly is the spitting image of Lucille Bluth.”It almost seems like satire because it is so out of touch.
