LGN: Pelosi Wants Red States To Let Illegals To Stay To Pick Crops

One would think this is satire from the Onion or Babylon Bee. Nope

Nancy Pelosi Argues Red States Should Let Illegal Immigrants Stay to ‘Pick the Crops’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday that Republican governors should welcome the influx of migrants coming across the southern border because they can “pick the crops,” in their states.

“We have a shortage of workers in our country, and you see even in Florida, some of the farmers and the growers are saying, ‘Why are you shipping these immigrants up north? We need them to pick the crops down here,’” she said at a press briefing.

Her comments came as a response the transportation of migrants to New York City, Washington D.C., and other localities that have touted themselves as sanctuaries for illegal immigrants by Republican governors such as Texas’s Greg Abbott, and Florida’s Ron DeSantis.

Dropping a busload off near Nancy’s homes in D.C. and San Francisco should be on the cards of Abbott and DeSantis. Or, hey, how about at Nancy’s winery in St. Helena?

“We have a responsibility to secure our border,” Pelosi said. “We also have a responsibility to recognize the importance of newcomers to our nation. Right now, the best thing we can do for our economy is to have comprehensive immigration reform.”

“Our nation is great because we are a nation of immigrants — but don’t take it from me, listen to Ronald Reagan. When I quote Ronald Reagan to my Republican colleagues, he doesn’t get any applause. Can you imagine that?” she asked.

Sure, they can come legally. We can provide work permits, and, when those expire, they leave. The low skill permits should be expanded, for sure. Here illegally? Deported immediately.

    Speaker Pelosi:

    “We have a responsibility to secure our border. We also have a responsibility to recognize the importance of newcomers to our nation. Right now, the best thing we can do for our economy is to have comprehensive immigration reform.”

    Sounds like a conservative plan.

    • Dana says:

      We do not need an immigration reform plan; we need an immigration enforcement plan!

      Let’s tell the truth here: “comprehensive immigration reform” is nothing more than liberal-speak for “let ’em all in”.

  2. Jl says:

    Sounds like a Dem talking point at election time-in actuality they’ll do the direct opposite.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      You may recall the Senate Gang of Eight and the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013 which was passed 68-32 in the US Senate but the Republicans in the House throttled it.

      The bill set a goal of achieving a 90% success rate of intercepting and deporting illegal immigrants who attempt to cross the border in one of the “High Risk Border Sectors” – places where more than 30,000 people cross per year. In order to accomplish this, the bill would increase the number of border security personnel by 3,500 people by 2017 (eventually a total of 40,000), authorize the National Guard to participate in missions related to border security, fund additional surveillance and surveillance technology, and provide funding to build a border fence.

      The bill creates the category of “registered provisional immigrant” (RPI) and outlines the steps necessary to obtain this status, as well as what qualities or characteristics of an illegal immigrant will prohibit them from obtaining it. Immigrants must apply to have their status changed. In order to be eligible, they must have started residing in the United States prior to December 31, 2011 and have been physically present since then. They must then pay a $500 penalty fee, are assessed taxes, and must pay application fees to cover the cost of their application.

      Illegal immigrants are ineligible to change their status if they:

      were convicted of a felony
      were convicted of three or more misdemeanors
      were convicted of an offense under foreign law
      voted unlawfully
      are judged to be inadmissible for criminal, national security, public health, or other morality grounds.

      In general, the bill increased southern border security, including fences and nearly 40,000 new agents; established a ‘path to citizenship’ for those in the country illegally long-term including the ‘DREAMers’; established a guest worker program-skilled workers; upgrade E-Verify…

      The trumpist ‘plan’ was/is to build a trillion dollar wall and start deporting all ‘illegals’, including those here for years or brought as children.

      • Jl says:

        Oh..nice try, J. The Dems had the presidency, the House and a super majority in the Senate in I believe 2009. Why didn’t they pass it then? Or why didn’t they pas a huge tax increase to “tax the rich” as the lib talking point goes….

        • The Liberal but not libertarian Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Oh… nice try, Jill. You may have missed it but Mr Bush left President Obama and Congress with the Great Recession, so there was a nation to save. The Dems in the 111th Congress DID have a potential filibuster proof (58 Dems + 2 Independents) Senate for 1.5 mo and a 4 mo period in late 2009 (when the Senate passed the PPACA). Later, Feb 2010, ARRA passed with the help of 3 GOP Senators (Specter, Snowe, Collins).

          There is always lots to do when the GOP has been in charge for a while – wars to wrap up, infrastructure to repair and upgrade, deficits, recessions, healthcare to fix…

      • Down on the Corner says:

        The 2013 bill or the one passed under Reagan is not even feasible to carry out.

        LEGISLATION with no teeth is a sham.

        The Democrats never intended to keep millions of illegals from coming to the USA. This bill only would address the few hundred who actually bothered to show up to go through a process they mostly have no intention of going through.

        K. Harris was questioned by a Democrat on Sunday and was told the border is not secure by which she grew visibly confused and angry and proceeded to regurgitate a word salad response.

        The simple fact is that any bill passed by legislation is moot if the government has no intention of honoring the legislation.(See NY’s response to the SCOTUS RULING ON GUN RIGHTS) This is why BUSH failed to get an Immigration bill passed during his presidency because he wanted to finish the fence and the Democrats said : sure we will finish the fence right after you give us everything we want.

        Implied in all of this was the democrats had no plan to finish the fence as was shown under Trump. That is why Bush could never get a deal done.

        Had the Democrats agreed to yeah when the fence is complete THEN we will do these things. The legislation would have been passed. Or if the Democrats had agreed to a tit-for-tat phasing in of the legislation such as 300 miles of fence and we will do X of your plan. 600 miles and we will do Y of your plan. ETC.

        Compromise is dead in American politics.

        • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

          Good. Compromise always means the people lose and the Republicans get blamed. That’s why we are where we are now. A moron as fake pres., a creep show as Congress, a bunch of perverts, fags and trannies in government and in teaching and a military that’s more concerned about DIE and CRT than winning a war.

          Compromise gets us nowhere but further behind. We need victories to get us out of this democommie mess of inflation, homelessness, war, crime, lawfare, drug culture, generational welfare, fag and tranny worship, supply shortages, energy destruction, government force, runaway inflation, murder of the pre natal, raping and mutilating of emotionally disturbed children, stealing elections, denying justice, letting out criminals, defunding police, adding IRS thugs, wanting people in red states to die in storms. And those are just the start. You see dowd’s false accusations do you want guys like him in charge of the courts, law and justice?

          Ya know who compromises? RINO’s that’s who and that’s why the democommies control everything.

          MAGA means no compromise with EVIL!

  3. Facts Matter says:

    I have a white nationalist and his wife cutting my lawn. The guy has 55 customers per week and charges 50-100 dollars for each job. He mows for basically 6 months and is off 6 months.

    Do the math 15k per week for 26 weeks. He makes more than I do cutting grass and I have a high school diploma. Everywhere I go in the cities I live in, the lawnmower guys are WHITE nationalists ULTRA MAGAS and not Hispanics. Those guys want to work for 15 buks an hour framing houses or laying concrete.

    These rich people really are out of touch with reality. I mean everywhere I go the landscapers are White Nationalists. The water sprinkler installers are White Nationalists. The Welders, Mechanics etc. HOWEVER, you have a house built which I did and the concrete and framers were all Hispanic Crews from TEXAS.

    None of them were pickin melons in their spare time.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      How do you know your grass cutter is a white nationalist?

      55 clients/week x $75 = $4,145/week. For 26 weeks that comes to $107,770 gross. Not bad for a white nationalist. His expenses are gasoline, equipment and travel. Likely cash transactions so no taxes(?).

      We had extensive landscaping recently and the ‘architect’ was an Estonian immigrant, the gang leader Mexican, and the workers all Hispanic.

      Our lawn guy is a white guy who works for a landscaping co and mows on the side on weekends. $50 a week. Good guy tattooed head to toe. Pay through Venmo.

      • Facts Matter says:

        Your right Dowd. In my haste to move on to other things my proofreading failed. I meant to say 15k per MONTH, but by saying per week I then extrapolated an error by then going on to 26 weeks rather than 15k per month for 6 months. I have no idea how many those were 50 dollars per week and how many were 100 dollars per week. None of my business.

        How do I know he is a white nationalist? I just assumed since the left claims that all white people who vote Republican are White Nationalists. He voted for Trump I assume since he wears shirts like don’t tread on me, is white, has a shaved head, and drives a gas-guzzling pickup truck.

        Are not those the prerequisites to be labeled a white nationalist?

        • The Liberal but not libertarian Elwood P. Dowd says:

          We all make assumptions about people based on their appearance.

          Of course, not all white Republicans are white nationalists. On the other hand, most white nationalists are conservative and Republican.

          A white nationalist is someone who believes that America should be a nation of white people, and support actions that further that belief.

          • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

            Thank you for stating the obvious dumbass.

            And a democommie is someone who believes that America should be a communist nation and support actions that further that belief.


          • CarolAnn says:

            Of course not all democrats are commies, Nazi’s or socialists. OTOH, most commies, Nazi’s and socialists are radical anti American democrats.

            Tit, meet tat.

  4. H says:

    Teach do you think that while awaiting their court date the migrants should either be allowed or encouraged to work?
    I do. Maybe if they worked and saved they could buy a car

  5. H says:

    Border security? I thought Trump built a wall to stop them?
    What happened? Are they using ladders ?

  6. Dana says:

    Our distinguished host concluded:

    Here illegally? Deported immediately.

    After a citation for having entered illegally, so that if they cross again, and we catch them, being a second offense, it will be a felony.

    I hate to take up the jail space, but we need to put in a system in which getting caught means more than a ticket to Juarez; it means two years in prison, and then getting shipped south of the border. The only way to slow down the immigrants is to let them know that getting caught means going to prison.

  7. ruralcounsel says:

    Seems pretty racist that Pelosi is assuming these people want to pick crops. So everyone with dark skin aspires to be a migrant farm worker? So we let them in and force them to work on mega-corporate farms doing hard manual labor? Sounds a lot like slavery.

  8. L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

    Pelosi’s a democommie so slavery is in her DNA. After all it was a democrat institution. They even tried an insurrection to force it.

    Democommies love to put their boot on other peoples necks. Especially blacks. They’ve been doing it for years. I guess now the POC are in line. It’s their turn.


  9. Jl says:

    John-you’re not a history major, are you? The wall wasn’t finished.

  10. Elwood P. Dowd says:


    Compromise is good. It’s how we survive. Yes, constant battling for dominance may be satisfying in the short term but it’s counterproductive in the long run.

    My hypothesis is that many Americans (mostly white, conservative and outwardly straight) feel threatened that their post-WWII TV life – white, churchy, conservative, adult, male-dominated, mom at home, Leave it to Beaver, made in the USA, might makes right, readin’, writin’ and arithmetic America – is being lost, or no longer exists. The ‘others’ knew their place. Now, we have The Great Replacement.

    That’s not to say that America after WWII was bad for the white masses – it wasn’t. Highways, schools, airports, bridges, dams and a rising middle class were built! The nation paid of the debt of WWII! Wages were up – mom, dad and the kids could take a vacation. They had a Chevy or a Ford, made in America. They had a ranch home or bungalow in the suburbs. Non-profit Blue Cross/Blue Shield! They could even save a little money. Their jobs were secure. The kids had new schools to attend.

    But not all Americans could take advantage of the ‘new’, improved nation.

    Blacks, American Indians, the openly gay, the chronically poor, the handicapped and Hispanics were left behind.

    Later, hip-hop music, pornography, Muslims, atheists, divorces, unmarried co-habitation, gender-benders, globalism were ‘made normal’! Now we have the odious facebook (meta), the odiouser twitter, 24 hr ‘news’, Amazon, ubiquitous cell phones, blogs, work from home,

    The Times, They Are a-Changin’ and it makes a lot of people very uncomfortable. Often, social movements just need a charismatic leader for a spark, e.g., Susan B. Anthony, Hitler, Mao, FDR, Churchill, MLK, Reagan, tRump to turn frustrations and iniquities (real or imagined) into action – for good or ill.

    We understand that you are angry and afraid, likely for reasons beyond politics.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Rimjob: My hypothesis is…

      Had to stop right there.
      Knowing Rimjob all the rest of his comment is either C&P or outright distortions.


      • CarolAnn says:

        Elwoods go-to line has become conservatives are angry and afraid. I guess that’s why we have such high crime in our neighborhoods, truancy, gangs, murders, thefts, carjacking, etcetera. We’re angry. Na afraid. Since we’re armed to the teeth the only thing to be afraid of is our increasingly tyrannical fed government. But that shouldn’t be limited to conservatives.

        All we know is that stolen elections have consequences and living in them. The hate emanating from the other side is palpable. The immorality and corruption is a force for American destruction.

        Imagine a political party so steeped in hate that the phrase make America great again inspires them to attack. That’s what our enemies are.

        BTW, I noticed you started calling L.G. Brandon despicable names. You need some time off from TPC. You need to reflect on what kind of person you’ve become.

        • The Liberal but not libertarian Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Despicable names like Luke or Leo or Lumbert??

          The election wasn’t stolen. If it had been, there would be at least a shred of evidence. There’s none. PeDon says it, so you believe it. Pathetic.

          If you truly believe that PeDon won the election you’re deluded. Sad.

          Take the time you need to heal your soul.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:


          Yes, nuCons/MAGAts/tRumpists are insecure which makes them angry and fearful. The pompous and arrogant libs think they’re smarter and better than today’s connies and that makes you angry. You’re afraid that LibDems are conspiring to replace white, Christian conservative patriots with murdering Blacks, Mexican rapists, Chinese commies and Muslim Jihadis.

          You know that the election wasn’t stolen and it makes you hate yourselves for having to support a lie. Why do you do it? Because you hate LibDems more than you love truth. Once you begin to live a lie, it’s easier to accept more.

          MAGAts ARE slowly devolving into enemies of America instead of just political opponents.

          • drowningpuppies says:
