Skip to comments.Florida Democrat: Without immigration reform, where will we get our landscapers and maids?

Via the Free Beacon, a rare example of a politician articulating the subtext of the evergreen jobs Americans wont do euphemism. Shes not the only prominent Democrat to do that lately. A couple of weeks ago, amnesty shill extraordinaire Luis Gutierrez told C-SPAN that America needs immigrants (i.e. illegal immigrants) because, without them, who would be working in the fields? Who, he wondered, would be doing the dirty backbreaking filthy work of working in agriculture that endless millions of unemployed Americans allegedly consider beneath them? And its not just Democrats: On Twitter, Benjy Sarlin points out that Haley Barbour is typically candid on this point too. The choice, then, as presented by Alex Sink, is either to let businesses continue to hire the serf class weve illegally imported or legalize that serf class so that businesses can then hire them in good conscience. No third option, evidently. Which, again, is why neither side can be trusted on border security. Once todays serfs become tomorrows citizens, where do tomorrows serfs come from? Theres a reason were negotiating a new amnesty 25-30 years after the last one.
Sinks problem is that it sounds at first blush like shes griping that she might not be able to find cheap help to clean her home. How much is she going to have to fork over if we pass on immigration reform and shes forced to hire a citizen to scrub her toilet? Thats not what shes saying, though; shes talking about landscapers and maids needed to staff local hotels, in case that makes you feel better. Perish the thought that any politician might have self-interested reasons for supporting amnesty. Now, if only we can get a Republican to repeat this verbatim, maybe itll gain some outrageous-outrage traction in the media. Any takers? Haley?
Give Leftists an opportunity and they will ALWAYS tell you who they really are.
How about trading work for EBT card fillups? There are millions of able bodied lazy shirkers sponging off those of us that work for a living. Earn it or lose it.
Don’t worry. We have a bumper crop of folks we can draw on for decades to provide gardening services.

Sounds like the Marxist Luis Gutierrez is very interested in slave labor. What’s the difference between him and Joe Stalin?
Theys ay they are willing to come in and do this kind of work but in 20 years from now they will say they were discriminated against and want our jobs.
Sen. Jeff Flake will jump at that. He's stupid enough.
Poppycock. In New Jersey traditional landscapers were/are non-hispanic and they make very good money servicing all those wealthy NJ blue collar workers.
What that idiot Democrat is thinking of is Cheap slave labor.
That’s easy. Luis Gutierrez is stupid enough to kill off the migrants before they get the job done.
Landscapers in Michigan/Ohio border are non-hispanic, small business owners. That work themselves and maybe one or two other people. Don’t know about the maids, no one I know has any.
If we’re talking about orchards and vegetable farms that’s a different story.
