A controversial comment made by Pelosi about illegal aliens has landed her in hot water. During a recent press conference, she claimed Florida needed illegal immigrants to pick crops. Many people have expressed outrage since she seems to be encouraging lawbreaking as well as stereotyping the work that illegal immigrants are good at while putting American workers out of work.
According to Breitbart, On Friday, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) spoke about illegal immigrants and claimed Florida farmers needed them to pick crops.
Social media users were quick to respond to Pelosi’s comments.
One person wrote, “Elitist progressive and pious views.”
“When she said the word ‘moral’ I expected her to spontaneously combust,” someone else commented.
And another tweeted, “Apparently there are no crops to pick on Martha’s Vineyard.”
According to another user, “Legal Hispanics will answer resoundingly in November and send Nancy and many radical Democrats home.”
According to a recent poll, a majority of Republican voters believe that legal and illegal immigration have a negative impact on American citizens.
The YouGov poll revealed that 56 percent of registered Republicans said immigration is making the U.S. “worse off,” while less than 2-in-10 Republicans said immigration is making the U.S. “better off.” About 15 percent said immigration has no impact.
