That Moment California Rep. Ted Lieu Told Immigration Haters to Basically STFU (VIDEO)

The following video, posted last month on the Facebook page of California Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu, kind of speaks for itself. This is a clip of what Rep. Lieu said at a March 17 Oversight and Government Reform Committee meeting.

Congressman Lieu: “I think it’s easy for people like you and me who wear suits and ties and work in offices to cast aspersions on those with a tenth-grade education . . . But let’s talk about some of these folks with the tenth-grade education . . . I have had the opportunity to meet over the years many farmworkers who have had families die under brutal conditions in the heat so that you or I can have less expensive orange juice, cheaper artichokes, or less expensive garlic . . . and I just want to suggest that these people have given far more to American society than you or I ever will.”America always has been and always will be a nation built by immigrants. That’s why I was deeply disappointed in yesterday’s Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing when a witness insulted the place of immigrants in our society.
