GOP Congressman: If You Like Your Job, Keep Your Job—No Matter What Your Immigration Status



Text  



In a video address to a group called the Illinois Immigrant Business Coalition, Illinois Republican representative Aaron Schock made a case for abandoning any attempt to enforce immigration laws at the workplace. Typically, advocates of amnesty make some nod toward punishing employers who use illegal labor. Not Schock, who enunciated a sweeping endorsement of all immigrant labor, regardless of the status of the immigrants. “Without enough workers,” ​ he said, “​the crops don’t get harvested, the assembly lines don’t run, and the manufacturing supply chain breaks down.  Quite frankly, I think if a man or a woman like their American job, wherever they were born, they should be able to keep that job.”
