Beto Tells Black Guy: We Need Illegal Immigrants for Cotton Gin

On Wednesday night Beto O'Rourke (Ted Cruz's challenger for Senate) hosted a town-hall event here in the Lone Star State.

During the event a black guy asked Beto about his thoughts on illegal immigration.

The  concerned citizen asked, "Do you support granting citizenship and  American-paid benefits to illegal aliens who violated our country to  come here, who fly their foreign flags here, who have citizenship in  their countries and whose families did absolutely not build this  country, while black people are subject to things that you explained  before?"

Beto had a head-scratching answer.Beto said we need illegal immigrants to pick cotton.

 "I mentioned going to the high school in Roscoe, I also went to the  cotton gin in Roscoe. And at that cotton gin, there are 24 jobs and the  manager of that gin says it does not matter the wages that I pay or the  number of hours that we set … no one born in Roscoe … or Texas or this  country who is willing to work. But there are immigrants who are coming  from Central America or Mexico or other parts of the world to Roscoe to  work these jobs and to help build our economy."

So we need illegal immigrants for the cotton gin?  

Dang, that sounds pretty racist, Beto.  

As a reminder, Beto is a Democrat - the same political party who founded the Ku Klux Klan.
