Why don’t more Democrats support this?
Recently on Fox’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) stated that he doesn’t under why companies bring in foreign IT workers with the current unemployment issue in the US.
According to Breitbart, host Tucker Carlson asked, “[W]hy, when you have the highest unemployment rate in our lifetime…would you allow companies to import IT workers from foreign countries to take middle-class or upper-middle-class jobs? That seems insane to me.”
Cruz replied, “I agree with you. I don’t think it makes sense. We have 22 million Americans who have filed for unemployment in the last four weeks. The whole purpose of legal immigration, it’s supposed to benefit the economy. When you have 22 million Americans out of work. They need to get the jobs. We don’t need to be bringing in a million-plus workers when 22 million Americans are out of work.” You can watch a clip of Cruz’s comments here.
