Pelosi says farmers need illegal immigrants 'to pick the crops' in Florida
By Adam Shaw , Bill Melugin

Inside El Paso's Migrant Welcome Center: How the city is keeping border crossers off the streets
El Paso is quickly getting migrants on buses to other cities, while Border Patrol sends many to detention facilities in other states to avoid street releases.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday said that farmers in Florida need illegal immigrants "to pick the crops" and she said there was a shortage of workers in the U.S.

Pelosi was asked about whether the southern border is secure, and responded by saying that while "we have a responsibility to secure our border, we also have a responsibility to recognize the importance of newcomers to our nation."

Pelosi then pressed her economic argument and made reference to recent moves by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and other Republican governors to move illegal immigrants north to places like Martha's Vineyard, New York City and Washington, D.C.

"We have a shortage of workers in our country, and you see even in Florida, some of the farmers and the growers saying, 'Why are you shipping these immigrants up North? We need them to pick the crops down here,'" she said.

Pelosi's remarks come as the U.S. remains in the throes of a historic border crisis which has seen more than 2.1 million migrant encounters this fiscal year, and more than 200,000 migrant encounters in August alone. It is the ongoing nature of the crisis that has led Republican governors to bus and fly migrants further north. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has bussed more than 10,000 migrants to Washington, D.C., New York City and Chicago, while DeSantis sparked outrage from Democrats when his office flew about 50 migrants to Martha's Vineyard.

Republicans have blamed Biden administration policies, as well as incentives offered by "sanctuary" cities, for fueling the crisis. Democrats and the Biden administration have blamed the Trump administration for rolling back legal asylum pathways, and have used the crisis to renew their calls for a pathway to citizenship for millions already in the country illegally.
