Press Sec Psaki Won't Deny The Plan To Import A Massive Foreign Workforce
There are still over 10 million Americans unemployed and struggling, yet Dems are talking about the possibility of bringing in hundreds of thousands of workers from South and Central America. How is that going to fix our unemployment numbers? Especially if the foreign workforce accepts less pay... Press Secretary Psaki was asked about the plan and instead of reassuring Americans that this would not become a reality, she said that's up to Congress.
“One other thing that the President of Mexico is expected to propose is an idea to bring an immigrant labor program to the U.S. that could bring 600,000-800,000 immigrants a year to work legally in the United States,” Fox News reporter Kristen Fisher said during Monday’s White House press briefing. “Is that something President Biden would consider?
“I’ve seen reports of that. I believe that’s a step that would require Congress,” Psaki responded. “I’m sure we’ll have a readout after the bilateral meeting this afternoon and they both will be speaking after it as well.”

"The comments came after two U.S. lawmakers from Texas, who are both Democrats, have warned about the crisis on the border.
Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX) told CNN on Monday that urgent action was needed to avoid “catastrophic” results on the border.
“Well, my concern at this in the recent weeks in my district, migrants who made it across the border, who even pass the line of MPPs [Migrant Protection Protocols], who were 5,000 folks that have been waiting for two years across the border, made it across the Rio Grande Valley were processed and released,” Gonzalez responded. “If that is the message that we send to Central America and around the world, I can assure you, it won’t be long before we have tens of thousands of people showing up to our border.”
“And it’ll be catastrophic for our party, for our country, for my region, for my district, in the middle of a pandemic, in an area where we’ve lost over 3,000 people in my small congressional district,” he continued. “So, I think we need to have a better plan in place. I think asylum seekers should be able to ask for asylum and be processed in their home country or a neighboring country. And we shouldn’t have a policy in place that impulses people to make this 2,000 mile trek where cartels and human traffickers are enriching themselves.”
I'm sure this will only help more Americans get on welfare because that's the direction we want our country to go in. We should be helping to get our own citizens all employed before we bring in any other workforces. There are millions of Americans in need of work and Dems seem to be thinking 'screw em.'
