    BERNIE SANDERS: ‘NO QUESTION IN MY MIND’ IMMIGRATION HURTS JOBS

    [​IMG]


    During a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce event,
    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
    explained that mass immigration would hurt wages in America.

    “Should we have a completely open border so that anyone can come in the United States of America?” Sanders replied, after MSNBC’s Alex Seitz-Wald asked the Senator about his position. “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 reminded the audience immigration affects the unemployment rate for Hispanic and African-American youth.

    “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?” he said.

    Open borders, he argued, would have a negative impact on employment, citing concerns about the existing problem of illegal immigrants currently living in the United States.

    “I don’t think there is any candidate for president — none — who thinks that we should open up the borders and not see that is having a negative impact,” he said. “So, to my mind is what do we do and how do we address the problem of 11 million undocumented people in this country today moving?”

    Sanders, however, endorsed amnesty for illegal immigrants currently living in America, arguing for a “path toward citizenship” for them and encouraging lawmakers to “move as fast as we can” to give them legal status.

    You mean keeping the demand the same and increasing supply hurts the job market?

    Ya don't fucking say. Good for old Bernie.

    Bernie makes too much sense and discusses the issues in a direct manner.

    He doesn't stand a chance.

    I like Bernie and always voted for him when he ran for office in Vermont, even though I don't always agree with him. He seems like an honest guy who will do what's best for the state/country instead of what's best for himself, even if it hurts him in the polls. Can't think of any other politicians in any party I can say that about.

    Shitty greedy fucks like the Wal-Mart family are destroying wages. Pay them just enough, but not really enough, then have the tax payers pick up tab on the bennies they can't afford. Oh yeah then there's the taxes Wal-Mart doesn't pay, that's right Joe Blow tax payer makes up the lost tax revenue. Sounds like a great plan!

    I agree with a ton of what he said but that last part is complete hypocritical bullshit. Apply the same logic and tell me how that is okay.

    the ppl who voted for open borders, but cheer trump cause he 'insulted' immigrants, likely are racists.



    seal the fkn border, grant amnesty with penalty, and create a work program with background check.
    and add taco fries to the congress cafeteria. done

    I know your remark wasn't directed at me personally, but I've never been handed a ballot that mentioned anything about our borders.

    imagine if we had someone with the balls to deport the (upwards of) 30 million illegals here?

    or even just half of them?

    would be nice to have a potus who cared about america.
