Amnesty: Amy Klobuchar Promises Welcome for World’s Migrants
 
Neil Munro12 Feb 20207,976
 

Sen. Amy Klobuchar is promising to tear down President Donald Trump’s border reforms that have almost stopped the northward flood of poor migrants into Americans’ workplaces, neighborhoods, and schools, and that have also raised wages and opened opportunities for sidelined Americans.

But Americans need immigrants, the Minnesota Democrat insists — without admitting migrants also force down wages and force up housing costs. In June 2019, she said:

    Immigrants, they do not diminish America, they are America … we need to step back and talk about is the economic imperative here … We have a situation right now where we need workers in our fields and in our factories.

I am all in favor of increased legal immigration, which is essential to sustain economic growth.     Trump is on the right track in saying legal immigration should be based on skills and employability,  but he doesn't want to let enough folks in.   I guess the sticking point is what to do about 10 million-plus illegals already here and working in the underground economy.   Address that matter, and right-size legal immigration going forward.   Of course, we've known that for years,  but we lack the political will.

Of course she does. Even the Dims know they can't win without the votes of non-Americans.
It takes an special kind of "Stoopid" to make Trump look like a defenseless victim and gain public sympathy,but damned if the Dims didn't pull it off!

Increased legal immigration used to be a mainstream Republican position.   It should be again.
