    Florida Democrat: Without immigration reform, where will we get our landscapers and maids?

    POSTED AT 5:21 PM ON FEBRUARY 25, 2014 BY ALLAHPUNDIT

    Via the Free Beacon, a rare example of a politician articulating the subtext of the evergreen “jobs Americans won’t do” euphemism. She’s not the only prominent Democrat to do that lately. A couple of weeks ago, amnesty shill extraordinaire Luis Gutierrez told C-SPAN that America needs immigrants (i.e. illegal immigrants) because, without them, “who would be working in the fields?” Who, he wondered, would be doing the “dirty backbreaking filthy work of working in agriculture” that endless millions of unemployed Americans allegedly consider beneath them? And it’s not just Democrats: On Twitter, Benjy Sarlin points out that Haley Barbour is typically candid on this point too.

    The choice, then, as presented by Alex Sink, is either to let businesses continue to hire the serf class we’ve illegally imported or legalize that serf class so that businesses can then hire them in good conscience. No third option, evidently. Which, again, is why neither side can be trusted on border security. Once today’s serfs become tomorrow’s citizens, where do tomorrow’s serfs come from? There’s a reason we’re negotiating a new amnesty 25-30 years after the last one.

    Sink’s problem is that it sounds at first blush like she’s griping that she might not be able to find cheap help to clean her home. How much is she going to have to fork over if we pass on immigration reform and she’s forced to hire a citizen to scrub her toilet? That’s not what she’s saying, though; she’s talking about landscapers and maids needed to staff local hotels, in case that makes you feel better. Perish the thought that any politician might have self-interested reasons for supporting amnesty. Now, if only we can get a Republican to repeat this verbatim, maybe it’ll gain some outrageous-outrage traction in the media. Any takers? Haley?

    We didn't have any problems hiring landscapers and maids before illegal immigration, why should we have problems now? My neice's husband is a landscaper and a legal one at that! And in todays economy, do they really think any job is beneath a person trying to feed their family and keep a roof over their heads???

    My first job was cleaning hotel rooms. Young people today don't even consider it here, and other areas, since it's been taken over for decades.

    One of my first jobs was cleaning rooms too. The best part was the perk of getting to use the pool. It also used to be very common for mothers with school aged children to work as maids. They didn't need day care because they could work during the school hours and still have a little time to themselves before the kids came home.
