On Tuesday night episode of The Ingraham Angle, Laura Ingraham called out Democrats for claiming illegal immigrants help the U.S. by doing the jobs that Americans won't - or can't - do.
The 54-year-old talk show host noted that D-III (Sen. Dick Durbin) pulled out a "tired trope" on the Senate floor on Monday after he said that undocumented immigrants are the only ones who will work hard, backbreaking work like manual labor and picking fruit.
Ingraham Blasts Durbin for 'Tired Trope' About Jobs Americans Won't Do: 'Stop Lying to Us'
Ingraham said, arguing that there are lots of Americans who will do the jobs that Durbin "turns his nose up at.", Ingraham said,
That is offensive on so many levels,
Laura noted that Democrats claims are a hot-button issue among audiences of her national radio. She said that Democrats used to worry about "flooding the nation" with poor people from other countries.
Laura then said,
For a fair wage, Americans will do and have done these jobs, Sen. Durbin. So stop lying to us,
She said Democrats really don't care about illegal immigrant workers, and they are more concerned with "remaking the electorate".
Laura said she would like to hear Durbin or other Democratic lawmakers speak as passionately about the Americans who have lost their jobs at the hands of illegal immigrants.
Whatever Congress' final deal on immigration includes ... the needs of the American people -- the American worker -- should always be priority number one.
