Pelosi Makes Racist Remarks…

( – Speaker Nancy Pelosi said during a press conference on Friday that there is a shortage of workers in the United States and illegal immigrants should pick the crops in Florida. Not only is that a racist thing to say, but it is also encouraging illegal behavior. Shouldn’t the Speaker of the House know that?

She knows. She just doesn’t care. Democrats are so emboldened by Joe Biden’s leftist agenda that they no longer even pretend that the southern border should be secure or that illegal behavior should have consequences. Pelosi was asked at a press briefing about Republican governors transporting illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities like New York City and Washington, D.C. Apparently Governor DeSantis was on her mind because she referenced Florida in her answer. Democrats and their cohorts in the media really didn’t like it when DeSantis flew about 50 illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard. She said those people should remain in Florida and “pick the crops.”

“We have a shortage of workers in our country, and you see even in Florida, some of the farmers and the growers are saying, ‘Why are you shipping these immigrants up north? We need them to pick the crops down here,’” she said at a press briefing.

Step back for a moment and think about if Donald Trump or any other Republican had made that statement. The media would have gone nuts over the racist tone of a Republican saying that. Instead, it was the 82 year old Pelosi who let her racist freak flag fly as she tried to slam a Republican governor making a point about the open southern border. The media didn’t seem too fazed by the remark.

Pelosi went on to babble about Ronald Reagan and doing what Democrats always do – she conflated illegal immigration with legal immigration.

“We have a responsibility to secure our border,” Pelosi said. “We also have a responsibility to recognize the importance of newcomers to our nation. Right now, the best thing we can do for our economy is to have comprehensive immigration reform.”

Pelosi also accused Republicans of hypocrisy on the issue, conflating their past support for legal immigration with an endorsement of illegal immigration.

“Our nation is great because we are a nation of immigrants — but don’t take it from me, listen to Ronald Reagan. When I quote Ronald Reagan to my Republican colleagues, he doesn’t get any applause. Can you imagine that?” she asked.

Pelosi assured Americans that President Biden is working on a plan to finally secure the border, close to two years into his administration.

“I believe that we have to have a secure border. And I think that we are trying to address… the president has a plan to address that,” she said.

Pelosi claimed that Biden has a plan “to address” the border crisis he created. When might we be told what this alleged plan is? He’s been in office for almost two years and he says the border is secure, as does the vice-president, and the DHS secretary. The Biden border crisis is intentional so that must be his plan. It’s the only one we’ve seen. If they make it to the border and cross over, they can stay.

Conservatives noticed and lit up social media over Pelosi’s tone-deaf remarks. This fiscal year alone, over two million illegal immigrants have been encountered. That doesn’t include the hundreds of thousands of “gotaways” who have fanned out across the country without apprehension. Instead of rewarding them with jobs, shouldn’t the Speaker encourage legal immigration through ports of entry like the laws on the books state?

Democrats are everything they accuse Republicans of being. Rewarding illegal behavior only encourages more of it. It’s an insult to immigrants who followed the law and waited years for their application to live in America to become a reality. The United States welcomes a set number of legal immigrants each year, usually between 1,000,000 and 1,200,000. They are from countries all over the world. The process is not easy but they follow the law.

Pelosi has been to Texas a number of times since Joe Biden took office. She has not bothered to tour the southern border, though, so she really only gives lip service to any kind of plan she thinks Biden has. Some actions have been taken in past years to make sure that people working in the United States are qualified to do so, like the implementation of E-Verify. The use of E-Verify is not mandated by federal law but it is a tool for employers to use to make sure workers are legally eligible to work in the United States. Pelosi apparently prefers that illegal immigrants be exploited as cheap labor.
