Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “Buttigieg Says American ‘Economy Needed 11 Million’ Illegal Immigrants”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg told a crowd in Des Moines, Iowa Saturday that the American “economy needed 11 million” illegal immigrants to stay functioning.

Buttigieg was asked by a member of the audience, “Do you think illegal immigration is a problem in the United States?”

The former mayor answered, “There’s no question we have to fix the system — for sure. But part of the problem is we’ve got an economy that really needs people, especially rural areas: I don’t think it’s a mystery to people in rural areas why there are a lot of undocumented workers.” (RELATED: ‘Bull****’ Buttigieg Flips Out On NYT Writer Who Says He ‘Was On The Front Lines Of Corporate Price Fixing’)

But Buttigieg argued the problem is not with illegal immigrants but with an immigration system that won’t allow sufficient numbers of legal immigrants into the country.

“We have a system that wasn’t actually set up to have that many people come in lawfully. The reason there’s 11 million undocumented folks here is that the economy needed 11 million more people than the system was prepared to let in.” (RELATED: Buttigieg Says America Was Never That Great’)
