Vineyard Owner Pelosi Gives Up the Game: ‘We Need’ Illegal Migrants to ‘Pick the Crops’

Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) gave up the game on Friday by arguing that “farmers and growers” need illegal migrants “to pick the crops.”

Pelosi, who owns a lavish vineyard in California, made the remarks while doubling down on her call for “comprehensive immigration reform.”

“Right now, the best thing that we can do for our economy is comprehensive immigration reform,” Pelosi said when asked about whether the Southern Border is secure.

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

However, Pelosi stopped short of trying to claim the border is secure.

She said:

“I believe that we have to have a secure border.

“And I think that we are trying to address president has a plan to address that.”

But Vice President Kamala Harris recently said the border is “secure” while echoing Pelosi’s call for new immigration laws.

She said:

“I think that there is no question that we have to do what the president and I asked Congress to do, the first request we made: pass a bill to create a pathway to citizenship.

“The border is secure, but we also have a broken immigration system, in particular, over the last four years before we came in, and it needs to be fixed.

“We also have to put into place a law and a plan for a pathway for citizenship for the millions of people who are here and are prepared to do what is legally required to gain citizenship.

“We don’t have that in place because people are playing politics in a state like this [Texas] and in Congress.”
