Tom Malinowski runs for a second term in the 7th district of New Jersey. He took part in the 2018 mid-term elections of Republican representative Leonard Lance
A democratic legislator told voters that undocumented migrants were needed to & # 39; our beautiful lawns & # 39; mowing, caring for the elderly, and performing other tasks that US citizens & # 39; elitist & # 39; were to do.
Democratic representative Tom Malinowski spoke at an event in the rich New Jersey suburb of Hillsborough when he made the comments.
The politician runs for a second term in the 7th district of New Jersey, which has a long history of sending mainly republican lawmakers to the congress.
Malinowski, who took part in the 2018 mid-term elections, told the people who gathered at Cafe Brio on Tuesday evening that there were many jobs that illegal migrants did that Americans would not do.
& # 39; There are many jobs in our community that like it or not, in prosperity and adversity, that Americans don't want to take on. & # 39;
He cited health assistance for the elderly and gardeners as tasks often performed by people without legal rights to reside in the United States.
& # 39; Who do you think cares for our seniors? & # 39; Mr. Malinowski asked the crowd. & # 39; Who do you think our beautiful lawns are mowing in Somerset County?
& # 39; We usually don't ask, but many of those employees don't have papers. There are just not many children who, unfortunately, from Montgomery High, will do that full-time. You go in robotics, for God's sake. & # 39;
An audience member can be heard in a video made by the Washington examiner of the event, Mr. Malinowski said that he worked at Code Ninjas, a company that codes for children.
& # 39; You work at Code Ninjas – exactly, & # 39; Mr. Malinowski replied. & # 39; You are an elitist couple! You are not going to mow lawns. & # 39;
Tom Malinowski during a ceremonial oath on Capitol Hill in Washington earlier this year. This week he told constituents that illegal migrants were needed to do child labor that many Americans were too elitist to do
The former Foreign Ministry official, who won his seat in 2018 by defeating Republican incumbent Leonard Lance, will be challenged by at least three GOP candidates in the 2020 vote.
Malinowski, who was also the first swing district democrat to support a movement of more than 120 home democrats to initiate proceedings against Donald Trump, is a frequent critic of the president and his government.
The Democrats group had a number of reasons for its accusation based on the findings of the Mueller investigation, which do not indemnify the President from allegations of election interference, for his general term of office.
A group of Democrats insisted on a removal procedure against President Trump.
His attitude towards immigration, the subsequent increase in arrests of undocumented migrants and the treatment of migrants and their children at the border has caused widespread criticism of those who are not in favor of his policies.
Official statistics show Immigrants make up around 14 percent of the population, or more than 43 million out of a total of around 323 million.
The number of illegal migrants would be around eleven million, a figure that has flattened since the 2008 economic crisis, which had a discouraging effect on coming to the United States.
President Donald Trump made tackling illegal immigration a central part of his campaign and administration.
Among his campaign promises were his controversial plans to build a border wall with Mexico, deport millions of illegal immigrants and forbid certain nationals to come to the United States.
