he's out of his cotton picking mind!

One of the facts of the matter, Republican's keep the US wages low. Nothing to do with immigration.
Wrong. The market determines wages. More workers applying for jobs = lower wages. It's called supply and demand.

This was in 2019:

In the video, Hunter eases himself over a railing before proclaiming, “That’s how easy it is to cross the border in Yuma, Arizona.”

But Hunter, the legally embattled Republican from California’s 50th District, did not actually cross into Mexico at the border as he appeared to claim in the video. The railing was a vehicle barrier positioned roughly 75 to 100 feet away from the Colorado River — the actual U.S.-Mexico border in Yuma.
“It looks pretty tough to cross. Let me see if I can do it,” Hunter says in the video, before sweeping his legs up and over the waist-high vehicle barrier’s horizontal bar and plopping down on the other side.

Nice of him to note that they are coming for jobs and he has absolutely no plan to address that.

Sorry, but got to laugh about Republicans claiming to be concerned about American wages

They hate the idea of unemployment and seek to force people back to work at jobs that pay too little.

Bullshit. Trump's economic policies created a very strong labor market and low inflation which resulted in an increase in real wages.

How is paying twice the price for imports not inflation even when it is done by a tariff?

I know what your TDS addled mind is getting at. The steel and aluminum tariffs are necessary for national security reasons. Our major military equipment is primarily made from aluminum and steel. Those tariffs were desperately needed to encourage an increase of domestic manufacturing capacity for those materials because being so dependent on overseas sources puts our military in a very precarious position.

The living wage jobs that policy decision created are simply an added bonus. I know 3 kids who got their first living wage jobs at North Star Steel.

And the tariffs had no significant effect on overall inflation. So your argument is a non-starter.

Republicans have nothing to say these days. If they're not spewing Q nonsense, they're silent.

Any ideas on immigration reform? Any ideas on anything at all? Nope... but what's more important are Jewish space lasers and Saul Alinsky and globalist commies and pedophile pizzerias!!!

Pffffftttttttt...

Why do we need “immigration reform?” The only reform we need is to stop immigration, legal and illegal, entirely with few exceptions. We’re already experiencing power shortages, water shortages, soon to be food shortages….we don’t need millions more dilapidated poor people, it’s not our job to feed them and provide them with jobs.

Interesting policy position... me, I used to run a orchard-farm in California. Take a guess how many citizens or even legal residents I could find to hire for farm labor?

How much per hour would you want for picking crops?

Why don't you racists think things through before making idiotic statements?
