DNC Chair: Illegal Immigrants – the Backbone of the American Economy

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz claims that bigotry is “deeply embedded” in the Republican party, and that they should aid illegal immigrants because they are the “backbone of our economy.”

Not Americans. Not legal immigrants. Illegal immigrants are the backbone of our economy.

During an interview with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos, Wasserman Schultz claimed that Republicans were playing politics by reuniting these children with their families in their home country, saying it amounts to “certain death.”

Watch the inflammatory rhetoric below…

Claiming illegal immigrants are the “backbone of our economy” is quite a shift for Ms. Schulz, who previously claimed that small business played that role. Of course, she also said hard-working American families are the “backbone of our economy.”

So which is it?

Aside from the incendiary hyperbole typical of a Wasserman Schultz interview, her claim that Republicans wouldn’t provide illegal immigrant children with assistance is patently and demonstrably false.

Earlier this month, the House of Representatives passed a $694 billion border bill that would provide additional border security measures, along with providing temporary housing and “humanitarian assistance” to unaccompanied children.

It was a bill Republicans called humane, effective, and expeditious.

The people who denied that assistance to the children were Harry Reid in the Senate who refused to consider it, and President Obama who vowed to veto it should the bill reach his desk.

It would appear that ‘appalling bigotry’ comes from the left side of the aisle.

    While most Democrats had the good sense to distance themselves from Obama when Americans got wind of ‘the democratic master plan’ to mass import and legalize millions of illegals, apparently, not everyone got the memo…Americans are demanding the tens of millions of illegals in this country be deported…Americans are demanding back the millions of jobs illegals are taking…Americans are demanding the billions spent on illegals be stopped…And Americans are demanding that fast track ‘adoptions’ of illegals without proper documentation be immediately stopped… Some schools are reporting the illegal ‘students’ have gray hair and appear older than the teachers….
