Dem House candidate: Without immigration reform, where will we get our landscapers and maids?

In a genuine gaffe (accidentally telling the truth), Florida Democratic congressional candidate Alex Sink revealed the class system at the heart of so-called “immigration reform.” The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Florida Democratic congressional candidate Alex Sink said immigration reform was important at a Tuesday debate because, without it, it would be difficult for employers to find people to clean hotel rooms and do landscaping.

“Immigration reform is important in our country,” she said. “We have a lot of employers over on the beaches that rely upon workers and especially in this high-growth environment, where are you going to get people to work to clean our hotel rooms or do our landscaping? We don’t need to put those employers in a position of hiring undocumented and illegal workers.”

Evidently Ms. Sink believes that there is no unemployment among American citizens in her disctrict. Or maybe she believes that unemployed Americans would rather receive unemployment benefits, section 8 housing subsidies, food stamps EBT cards, Earned Income Tax credits, and the other range of freebies available in our welfare state safety net hammock. She should really explain why Americans can’t do those jobs, in her opinion.
