This is something that so many middle class & poor Right Wingers don't understand. The rich corporate Republican bigwigs want that cheap labor. George W. Bush was FOR open borders to provide that cheap labor for all his corporate pals. Ronald Reagan passed a amnesty law which granted amnesty to millions of illegals.The Koch Brothers Want Amnesty and "Open Borders."
"A Reagan Legacy: Amnesty For Illegal Immigrants"
This is just another fine example of how Republican politicians lie to their voters. They tell them what they want to hear and then they take actions that benefit their oligarch corporate pals who WANT that cheap illegal labor.
President Obama has been tougher on illegals than any Republican president.
"Obama has deported more people than any other president in this country's history"
"Obama is deporting immigrants faster than Bush"
