Carson: Illegals Won’t Need To Come Here If We Help Central and S. America’s Economy

‘Creating jobs and creating opportunities and teaching those people to add business, and while, at the same time, making profit’

CARSON: "Well, what I support is giving them, if they have a pristine record, an opportunity to register as guest workers so they’re not, you know, living subterranean. You know, they’re above ground. They have to pay, you know, a back tax penalty and they have to pay their taxes going forward. And they have to maintain a pristine record. And they don’t get to vote. They aren’t citizens, but they’re not living beneath ground and they have something that they prefer. But my long-term plan would be for us to allow, you know, American businesses to do the same kind of thing they’re doing in Cameroon right now, going over there, developing the acreage, you know, creating jobs and creating opportunities and teaching those people to add business, and while, at the same time, making profit. If we do that in Central America and South America and help them to be able to improve their own standard of living there, they won’t need to come here."
