Democrat Rep and Obama-Era Official: We Need Illegals to ‘Mow Our Beautiful Lawns’

Rep. Tom Malinowski, a former Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor under Barack Obama, revealed his belief that immigrants – both legal and illegal – are necessary to “mow our beautiful lawns.”

Malinowski (D-NJ) made the offensive comments to constituents at a campaign event in the wealthy New Jersey suburb of Hillsborough.

“There are a lot of jobs in our community, that like it or not, for better or for worse, Americans are not willing to take,” he claimed.

Which is, of course, a ridiculous notion. If illegals weren’t performing those jobs, legal immigrants and Americans would be doing them at higher wages, paying more in taxes because they have social security numbers.

He then went on to give examples of this lie, ultimately landing on a racist stereotype.

“Who do you think is taking care of our seniors?” Malinowski told those in attendance. “Who do you think is mowing our beautiful lawns in Somerset County?”

He went on to explain that “a lot of those workers are undocumented.”

One person in the crowd noted that he is employed at a company that teaches children coding, to which Malinowski responded, “You’re a bunch of elitists! You’re not going to mow lawns.”

You know, like those lowly immigrants, illegal or otherwise.

Imagine for a moment somebody like Donald Trump, Mike Pence, or a Lindsey Graham making a comment like this.

Obama’s Similar Comments

One person you don’t have to simply imagine making similarly offensive comments is the man Malinowski used to work for – Barack Obama.

Obama delivered an amnesty speech in 2014 where he referred to illegal immigrants as the people who “pick our fruit and make our beds.”

“Are we a nation that tolerates the hypocrisy of a system where workers who pick our fruit and make our beds never have a chance to get right with the law?” the former president asked.

Former Florida gubernatorial candidate, Alex Sink, a Democrat, made similar comments asking of Latinos, “where are you going to get people to work to clean out hotel rooms or do our landscaping?”

Malinowski Ran Because of Trump’s ‘Attacks’ on Immigrants

Oddly enough, Malinowski ran for Congress in 2018 specifically based on President Trump’s so-called ‘attacks’ on immigrants.

“It was the Muslim ban, and attacks on immigrants, it was the tearing up of alliances and commitments internationally,” he claimed were reasons to push him into the political arena.

Yet, here he is mocking and stereotyping illegals. Remarkable.

  • demoncrates have been racist since 1866. They are the founding fathers of the klan, they pushed jim crowe laws thru, they fought against desegragation, they put American citizens in concentration camps during WW II because they were Japanese-American, they are the ones that took SS out of its own fund and put it in the general funds, they are the ones that started taxing SS. Need I go on?

  • follow history right after the Civil War, where the Democrats started the K-K-K. Republicans freed the slaves, Demos wanted to use them like cattle.

  • Screw E-Verify! If they don't have a legal Social Security Number NO JOB, until it comes back clear, just like gun registration! What's so hard about that?
    Of course SS has to have strict rules to issue a SSN! They can't pass them out like candy!

  • When I was growing up in a resort town we all worked for
    restaurants, motels, hotels or gardening companies or picked fruit in summer
    It is BS that we will not do the jobs.

  • I will make my own bed every day and mow my own dang lawn with my own grubby stinkin’ white hands, thank you very much. Then I will chitchat with the neighbor’s gardener (in English or Spanish, however we please), then I clean up and go treat 35+ peoples’ ailments for 10 hours, then come home, chillax and appreciate the fruit of my labor (while involuntarily sharing $30k yearly for the feds to squander as they please). EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. MAGA! Racist? No, responsible!

  • Hahahaha.....hilarious.....the inmates now run the asylum. They can't use a traditional lawn mower though. GND says eliminate use of all fossil fuels. No gas. How will they get there? GND eliminates cars too. And planes. The democrats have truly gone to live in never-never land.
