....Sixty-nine percent of undocumented immigrant workers have jobs deemed essential by the Department of Homeland Security, according to the study, which is based on the 2019 American Community Survey by the Census Bureau. The study also estimated that nearly one in five essential workers is an immigrant.
By contrast, the Trump administration has argued that protecting American jobs against foreign workers is crucial to fixing the economic harm caused by Covid-19.

What a load of crap.
Yea!!!! Mexicans save America, again!!! The first time was when they picked our lettuce while we were screwing around fighting global fascism.
It’s all those doctors and scientists sneaking over the Mexican border.
Citizens = unessential
Noncitizens = essential
No doubt, they go on to say the other 39% of essential workers are here legally on a work visa.
i.e., Americans are not essential in our own country. What a load of Obama.
Notice the article shifts between reporting illegals and legal immigrants to shape the propaganda. Also note it says 69 percent of illegal *workers*, which sidesteps the fact a majority of illegals are not working, but receiving benefits.
Los cholos landscaping artists are staying busy in my neighborhood. Maybe I should tell Governor Cooper..
It’s the food chain. From picking to processing to delivering to cooking.
Illegals are a part of that workforce.
I suppose it is how one defines “essential”. My guess is they will define that any way they can to advance illegal scumbags.
I knew this crap would start up again as the Uniparty pushes for amnesty.
We’ve all seen it. A group of epidemiologists hanging out in the Home Depot parking lot. A hospital van stops. Two or three get picked and jump in.
what’s surprising is they’re letting the obvious out of the bag so early. Prepping to ring the racist bell should anyone question why illegals are doing jobs Americans and legals likely would do in a pandemic to make ends meet. Or question why, for instance, 1 in 85 Los Angelinos are covid infected. The manicured lawns of the rich look nice, cut on schedule. Uber and Lyft are overpopulated. Home Depot is buzzing with guys in the trades. Although it’s like a trip back to the 70’s because nobody can get a haircut.

HA ha ha ha! That was a good one!
If they are so essential we should make the generous choice and send them home so they can help the families and neighbours of their homeland
Says study is like a poll it says anything you want it to aka BS.
