Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) stood before the House floor on Tuesday night and said that removing illegal aliens from not only the U.S. workforce, but from the United States, would open up millions of jobs for unemployed Americans:
There is a surefire way to create jobs now for American citizens. Evict all illegal aliens from America and immediately open up millions of jobs for unemployed Americans.
The eviction of illegal aliens from America has the side benefit of eliminating the abundance of cheap, illegal alien labor which, in turn, forces blue collar wages up, thus helping American families afford and pursue the American dream
Mr. Brooks also added that illegal aliens are able too commit crimes against Americans and legal immigrants because the federal government and most state and local agencies are not able to enforce immigration laws:"
Illegal aliens commit horrendous crimes against American citizens, crimes that strain state and federal judicial systems, police and sheriff departments and prisons that are already overcrowded in a financial crisis.
Mr. Brooks also covered other areas where illegal immigration:
The issue of illegal aliens is greater than just jobs and better incomes for American citizens. "Illegal aliens crowd our hospital emergency rooms, delaying treatment for Americans and driving up healthcare costs, because too many illegal aliens don't pay their bills. Too often, illegal aliens get free healthcare on the backs of already stressed American taxpayers.
