Rep. Jerry Nadler faced criticism after stating during a congressional hearing that the U.S. needs “many illegal immigrants,” emphasizing their contribution to the labor force, particularly in agriculture.

He argued that the low birth rate in the U.S. necessitates immigration to support Social Security and Medicare.

Former Trump administration immigration adviser Stephen Miller and Rep. Mike Lawler criticized Nadler’s remarks, with Miller calling them a tired and nonsensical cliche, and Lawler emphasizing the need for legal immigration and border security.

“We need immigrants in this country,” Nadler said. “Forget the fact that our vegetables would rot in the ground if they weren’t being picked by many immigrants — many illegal immigrants.”

“The fact is the birth rate in this country is way below replacement level, which means our population is going to start shrinking,” he added. “And the ratio of people on Social Security and Medicare is going to increase relative to the number of people supporting them.”

“Yes, all the millions of illegals from 150+ countries spanning the globe are going to Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, New York, etc. to work in the fields,” former Trump adviser Stephen Miller wrote.

“What a tired, vapid, exhausted and stupid cliche,” he added. “Just utter nonsense.”

“Immigrants do more than pick vegetables, Jerry — they contribute to our economy, our culture, our community. They are doctors, nurses, home health aides, lawyers, professionals, and yes, ag workers,” Rep. Mike Lawler said.

“No one is against immigration — but there must be a process,” he said.

“What is happening at the border is a catastrophe and cannot continue. Secure the border and fix our broken immigration system so that those who want to come here and contribute to our economy can do so, and do so legally.”
