Russert: 24% of farming is illegal. 14% of construction. 12% of food industry. They are all illegals. What will happen to those industries if those illegals are sent home?
Sensenbrenner: I'm not saying send those home. Turn the illegal workforce into legal workforce. Because this problem has festered for so long, that can't be done with the wave of a wand or signing of bill.
Unless we do employer sanction, we'll get more illegals.
(not answering the question)
IF 24% of farming is illegal, 76% is legal.
If 14% of construction is illegal, 86% is legal.
I thought these were jobs Americans would not do!
