Carson on Immigration: Let’s Take People ‘Willing to Work in Industries We Need Them’

‘I’ve talked to hotel owners and they say that they would have a very difficult time without them’

REPORTER: "What's the economic harm, in your view, of having these 11 million people here now?" 
CARSON: "When you look at farming industries, I've talked to farmers with multi-thousands acres farms and they say their business would collapse, I've talked to hotel owners and they say that they would have a very difficult time without them. That'sy I say workers willing to work in industries where we need them. That's a win-win situation. I think the other thing we have to keep in mind, we're compassionate people. Like in Cameroon right now, there are American companies over there I've spoken to some of them who are helping to develop millions of acres, incredibly fertile land growing record crops, getting big profits which is great for them. I like business. You do what works for you. At the same time, they're building infrastructure of that nation creating jobs there and teaching them the ag business so they can carry on themselves and at the same time creating friends for the United States. There's really no reason that we can't do the same kind of thing in other parts of the world, including central and south America. It's a positive effect."
