Albert N. Gore on Immigration
A: We need to find additional resources that can fund these programs. For example, we have more than 13 million workers in this country who are illegally here. These workers are willing to work long hours at jobs that many Americans will not take. If these workers are earning a wage --and that is why they are here--why not work to make them become U. S. citizens and have them pay Social Security and other taxes going to Medicare and Medicaid. This is an untapped resource. In pursuing this, we need to make sure we don't pass immigration legislation that is anti-labor. Anti-labor laws have already impacted the ability of the nation's farmers to hire workers who are reliable and steady on the job.
