Wasserman Schultz: Illegal aliens ‘part of the backbone of our economy’

Debbie Wasserman Schultz is now calling illegal aliens “part of the backbone of our economy.”

On Tuesday’s edition of Fusion TV’s “America with Jorge Ramos,” the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee was asked what Democrats thought about the recent surge in illegal immigrants coming to the United States from Central America.

Democrats welcome immigrants, but the welcome “isn’t about politics at all,” she said.

“It’s not about politics for the president, nor is it about politics for any of us who care about making sure that young people or people in general, who have come to this country simply to make a better way of life for themselves and are of no threat to our country, and actually, essentially have become a part of the backbone of our economy, that we create a pathway to legal status for them, to citizenship,” Wasserman Schultz said.

What a nice message for the 140 million working Americans, that 12 million illegal aliens are outdoing them in propping up the U.S. economy.

In “Are There Really Jobs Americans Won’t Do?” of 2013, the independent Center for Immigration Studies showed that of the 472 civilian occupations in the United States, only six are dominated by immigrants, both legal and illegal, comprising just 1 percent of the workforce.
