Harry Reid is in Denial

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid just won’t admit that many construction jobs in his home state of Nevada go to illegal aliens, in large part because last year Reid refused to allow a vote on SA 239 which would have required construction companies to use E-Verify to determine if job applicants were in the country legally.  Reid Declines Vote on Illegal Worker Plan

Some expressed disbelief that Reid said this, claiming his intent was mangled by editing: Right Wing Howls Over Reid’s Claim On Illegal Immigrants — But What’d He Really Say?

To help clear up any doubts, here’s the uncut footage of the interview. The pertinent exchange starts at 1:10.

BACA: You go to the unemployment office though, and there’s many U.S. citizens who are unemployed construction workers, and they don’t have specific jobs because right now, some of those construction companies find it easier to hire undocumented workers.

REID: I think that any information you have in that regard is absolutely without foundation.

BACA: The Pew Hispanic Trust though says that about 14 percent of illegal immigrants– 14 percent of construction workers are unauthorized immigrants.

REID: Well that may be some place, but it’s not here in Nevada.

Watch the tail end of the footage to see Reid wave off his responsibilities to his constituents, with extreme disdain.

In related news, the obituary of an 84-year-old Nevada woman expressed her grievous displeasure with Reid. A Dying Wish: Don’t Vote for Harry Reid Let’s hope the collossal failings of the elected official she once supported didn’t put the dear lady over the edge.

    Not only do they take the jobs Americans will do, and enjoy doing, the glut of labor they cause drives down the wages of those jobs Americans would like to have. Additionally they also flood temp agencies, factories, and food processing plants, all of these jobs are jobs Americans will do. As for the "sweltering farm jobs" liberals always insist no one else except illegals will do, there is a labor force that could replace them very quickly, and that is machines as is done in very many other countries around the world. Necessity is the mother of invention, as well as modernization.

    These 'TRAITORS' are in denial, and they feel if they can keep telling these lies long enough and loud enough that people will eventually believe them. The facts tell a different story though, and especially when we use our own common sense and can clearly see these illegal aliens out there in public ,not hiding in the shadows as Obama would like us to believe, but rather out there in our faces, thumbing their noses, waving their foreign flags, and essentially daring your average American citizen to do anything about it because they feel they have the full backing of the U.S. President and our entire federal government behind them ,and for good reason. The "powers that be" no longer even tries to deceive the white people of this country in their obvious objective of trying to destroy our language, our culture, and the very demographics of our nation. But if you ask me, I believe they've made a tactical error in taking off the mask of deception too soon. They have only revealed themselves for what they really are creating even more resistance towards their agenda.

    I came across a passage written by John Derbyshire, "Harry Reid smells the peasants." It's so descriptive I've got to post it. http://www.johnderbyshire.com/Opinions/RadioDerb/...

    From personal experience I can tell you the percentage of illegals on jobsites is way over fourteen percent. I live in Washington state and I would put it closer to fourty percent. If it's that high here then Nevada has to be at least that high.

    But we already knew Harry Reed is a traitorous liar.
