Dem 2020 Candidate Joe Sestak on ‘Undocumented’ Immigrants: ‘We Need Them’
July 16, 2019
Legalization of the status of “undocumented” immigrants will “help” America’s economy, said Democrat presidential candidate Joe Sestak — former representative of Pennsylvania’s 7th congressional district and retired 31-year Navy veteran who reached the rank of three-star admiral — in a Monday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.
Immigration in necessary for demographic and economic purposes, assessed Sestak.
“I believe we must protect our borders, but I also believe we must protect our economy,” said Sestak. “Since 1970, American women citizens’ birth rate has been inadequate to replace those who we unfortunately lose every year. If it were not for immigration of all types, we would have been in a population death spiral, not unlike Japan’s, which, as you know, its economy stagnated in the last two decades largely because of that, and now with the baby boomer generation retiring, our workforce would plummet without this.”
