On Meet the Press Sunday, CNBC host Jim Cramer said that those pushing amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens simply don’t care about American workers. Cramer stunned the political establishment by saying out loud what the elites and their donors want to censor — that amnesty would destroy our workers and hurt our economy.

Cramer, a lifelong Democrat, was responding to Obama economic adviser Gene Sperling’s assertion that “immigration reform” would fix the nation’s job problems, hitting the Democrat party in particular, but making a much larger point.
“David, don’t you find it interesting that the dogma is now post-Clinton, pro-immigration at a time when we have a much larger supply of labor than we need, and pro free trade,”Cramer said on Meet The Press to host David Gregory. “Even though we are supposed to be greenhouse gas-oriented, we know where those jobs go. Those jobs leave this country to countries that can pollute all they want. I’ve always wanted to know why the Democrats didn’t say, ‘You know what, we need the defense against the countries that take our jobs and pollute all over.'”
“But we don’t care about that. What we care about is when workers come to this country from other countries they get jobs. Why don’t we care more about our people?” asked Cramer.
Gregory, who has been criticized for being a mouthpiece for Washington’s permanent political class, immediately changed the subject to discuss the stock market.
