WASHINGTON DC - When asked on Wednesday if putting illegal aliens on a "path to citizenship" would help unemployed Americans, Illinois Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky responded that “comprehensive immigration reform" would "raise the wages" of all workers.
CNSNews.com asked Schakowsky: “Do you think that allowing illegal aliens to stay in the United States and putting them on a path to citizenship, would that help the unemployed in America?”
Schakowsky responded: “We know that comprehensive immigration reform would add billions and billions to our economy. It would raise the wages, really. of all workers, because right now immigrants are – undocumented immigrants – are exploited and even paid below the minimum wage.”
