• Did Bernie Sanders Just Admit That ILLEGAL Immigration Hurts Wages?

    Democratic presidential contender and proud socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders told a crowd at a United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce event Thursday that allowing a relentless flood of illegal immigrants into America would only hurt the wages of American workers.

    Sanders’s comments Thursday were in response to backlash he received from far-left, open boards groups.

    “What they are talking about is completely opening up the border,” Sanders said when asked about the criticism he’s received. “That was the question. Should we have a completely open border so that anyone can come in the United States of America? If that were to happen, which I strongly disagree with, there is no question in my mind that that would substantially lower wages in this country.”

    Sanders said it would be unfair to allow more unskilled illegal workers to take jobs from young black and Hispanic Americas, who’re experiencing record amounts of unemployment.

    “When you have 36-percent of Hispanic kids in this country who can’t find jobs and you bring a lot of unskilled workers in the country what do you think happens to that 36-percent of kids of today who are unemployed? 51% of African-American kids are unemployed,” Sanders said. “I frankly do not believe we should be bringing in significant numbers of unskilled workers to compete with those kids,” Sanders made clear.

    But then Sanders goes unto contradict himself by saying that we need to “move as fast as we can” and make the 11 million illegals who are here, legal citizens–who will eventually compete for and take away more job opportunities from people who didn’t break the law by coming to America.

    The socialist was making a lot of sense. But I knew it was too good to be true.
