House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday that Republican governors should welcome the influx of migrants coming across the southern border because they can “pick the crops,” in their states.
“We have a shortage of workers in our country, and you see even in Florida, some of the farmers and the growers are saying, ‘Why are you shipping these immigrants up north? We need them to pick the crops down here,'” she said at a press briefing.
Pelosi also accused Republicans of hypocrisy on the issue, conflating their past support for legal immigration with an endorsement of illegal immigration.

The Democratic party has ALWAYS been the true home of the REAL racists.
The very personification of a Plantation Democrat
Democrats get really upset when I ask them if they are ever embarrassed to make the same arguments for open borders - “We need them for cheap labor” - that Democrats made for keeping slaves. Maybe they could try paying “a living wage” to hire U.S. citizens to clean their houses, mow their lawns, and take care of their children.
Should pick our own crops, shoulda picked our own cotton.
“We have a shortage of workers in our country, and you see even in Florida, some of the farmers and the growers are saying, ‘Why are you shipping these immigrants up north? We need them to pick the crops down here,’” she said at a press briefing.
