Floundering Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke not only wants open borders, but he also wants America’s economy wide open to foreign labor. O’Rourke told a CNN town hall: “Let’s bring them out of the shadows, allow them to contribute to their full potential, put them on a path to citizenship, and ensure that our visa quotas match the labor demands we have here, our desire to have families be able to reunite, and have everyone contribute to share the greatness and success of this country.” According to a Breitbart report, this is reminiscent of President George W. Bush’s “any willing worker” law that would have wreaked havoc on American wages already undermined by the flood of illegal immigrants. It’s no wonder why blue-collar voters are flocking to President Trump.

Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke says employers should be able to hire foreign workers instead of Americans whenever there are “labor demands.”
The labor policy announced by the Texas Democrat would allow U.S. employers to replace millions of Americans with cheap foreigners whenever Americans ask for more pay, better working conditions, or family leave.
The replace-Americans policy was buried in O’Rourke’s repetition of the progressive claim that the United States is a nation of immigrants and his call for two amnesties. “Let us rewrite our immigration laws in our own image,” O’Rourke declared in a May 21 CNN town hall in Des Moines, Iowa.
