South Carolina Senator Robert Ford is a pro-illegal immigrant advocate. Why? Because, as he claims, they work harder than the brothers.
“We need these workers here. A lot of people aren’t going to do certain type of work in this country,” Ford said. “The brothers are going to find ways to take a break. Ever since this country was built, we’ve had somebody do the work for us.”
That’s right. He just called black people lazy.
“Americans are not going to do no hard, hard work,” said Senator Robert Ford. “The foundation right now for industry going to be laid by Mexican workers. That’s a matter of fact. Now, they got some people upset about that? They better learn American history and they better get a life.”
“I go out there every day and watch the workers,” said Ford. “All of that dirt, all of the digging, all of the piling, that’s Mexican workers.”
Ford said “brothers” don’t work as hard as Mexicans, and then followed that comment with, “blue-eyed brothers” don’t either.
“All the media call me, ‘Oh, Senator Ford, you should apologize,’” he said. “For what? Americans not going to do no work. The hard work is always done by new immigrants. In this case they happen to be a Mexican, Mexican immigrants, and I’m fighting like hell to make sure they stay here and become citizens. And then once they become citizens, they not going to do no hard work, either.”
