Sanders Opposes Open Borders: ‘That Would Substantially Lower Wages in this Country’

‘There is no question in my mind that that would substantially lower wages in this country’

Bernie Sanders Against Open Borders: "That Would Substantially Lower Wages In This Country" (RealClearPolitics)

At an event hosted by the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, Democratic candidate for president Sen. Bernie Sanders made it clear he is against open borders because it drives down the wages of American workers.

Responding to the criticism he received from Hispanic groups after an interview with Ezra Klein of Vox earlier this week where he made similar comments Sanders dismissed them as organizations who support "completely opening up the border."

"What they are talking about is completely opening up the border," Sanders responded. "That was the question. Should we have a completely open border so that anyone can come in the United States of America? If that were to happen, which I strongly disagree with, there is no question in my mind that that would substantially lower wages in this country."
